Make any celebration colorful and memorable with a handmade paper maché piñata filled with parent-friendly and kid-fun Crayola® prizes.
For a crayon-shaped piñata, cut the bottom off three or four lunch-size paper bags. Lay the bags in a row and tape them together to form a long tube shape. Fill the bags with crumpled recycled newspaper. Form a point at one end of the tube and secure with tape. Leave the other end of the tube open.
Cut or tear recycled newspaper into strips.
Cover your work area with recycled newspaper. Combine glue with an equal amount of water in a shallow bowl to make a paper maché glaze.
Dip paper strips in the glue, squeeze out excess moisture, and layer them over the filled paper bags to form a crayon shape. At the open end, attach a string for hanging. Cover the whole sculpture with another layer of paper mache. Dry.
Carefully remove the recycled newspaper from the open end of the pinata.
Paint your piñata with Crayola Washable Kid’s Paint and Paint Brushes. Air-dry the piñata.
If you wish, glue streamers, tissue paper, or other decorations to your piñata, to go with your party theme!
Fill the piñatas with Crayola Markers, Glitter Glue, and similar items that are not likely to break when the piñatas are broken open.
