- Paper Sacks (we used lunch bag size)
- colored tissue paper
- glue sticks
- candy (or some other type of goody that will hold up to being hit with a bat)
- hole punch
- Soft bat or tightly rolled up paper to hit the piñata with
To prep for this craft, I did a couple of steps in advance. I cut the tissue paper into about 3 inch wide strips. Then I cut a fringe along one edge, like this:
After I cut the fringe, I cut the long strips into smaller pieces, some the width of the paper sacks and others half that size so they could alternate colors.
I drew lines across the sacs, so the kids would easily know where to put the glue.
To get started, just run your glue stick along the pre-drawn lines and apply the tissue paper fringe. Be sure the fringed edge is pointing down towards the bottom of the sack. (Not like in these pictures, ha!.)

Now for the good part!
|I took at least 50 to 60 shots of us hitting the Piñata. I had to laugh |
several times over some of my Hubby's facial expressions...
|Oops, Piñata foul!|
|We even let Dad have a few whacks!|
