Mini Kid Pinatas

 At my son’s Birthday Party this last month we decided to make Mini Pinata’s with his friends.
It was such a fun thing to do I thought I would like to share it with all of you.
They are easy, fun, and what kid does not like a pinata?

First, you need your supplies.  You will need two paper lunch sacks per child, some tissue paper, pompoms, crayons, construction paper, scissors and glue.  (Or anything else you would like to use.)  I cut the tissue paper into strips to make it easier for them.

You put two lunch sacks inside each other and hand one set to each child.  Then, you let them go wild creating.  (I love seeing what kids will come up with.)

When they are all done you stuff the inside of their sacks with some tissue paper and a handful or two of candy.  Then staple them shut on top.

We got some creative and fun pinatas!  I think most of the kids at our party made them into monsters.

After they dry you punch a hole in the top, attach some rope and take them outside to knock apart.  I was surprised how sturdy they were.  It took a little while to break some holes.

I hope you have fun making some mini pinatas with your kids also!mini pinatas

  1. What a great idea! My daughter just told me that she wants a pinata at her next birthday. The only problem is that her birthday is in March, and around VA it is still winter. These could be done inside, if necessary. I’m definitely going to see if I can make it work! Thanks!!!

  2. I made these with my scouts a few years ago- they are so fun! Thanks for this fun post Tasha!

  3. OMGosh! so cute..I bet my son will want to make his a spider man pinata!

  4. Such a cute idea! My sister’s son recently made a pinata using a shoe box. He made it a football field and it was really hard to break, which was perfect since adults were playing too!
