A Christmas Pinata

The Man-Cub and I spent part of the afternoon finishing up a Christmas pinata - it's going to the Pack meeting with us tomorrow - to be completely demolished I'm sure -

We started with a cardboard frame in the shape of a Christmas Tree...

Then we added several layers of newpaper soaked in a water/flour mixture - very goopy and messy that...

We cut a slit and filled the cavity with candy - then we plastered over the slit with some more newsprint - it's pretty heavy at this point. Then we cut strips of colored tissue paper and covered the outside and 'decorated' the tree.

  1. I can see why it took 30 scouts and a leader to break that pinata. A cardboard box with dried paste on it hanging from a string.HaHa E
