Back in October for Karsyn's birthday party, I made a pullstring pinata for the kids as an activity. I first saw this fabulous tutorial over at Young House Love on how to make a pullstring pinata which is great for little kids that can't control a bat let alone swing it and not hit everything/everyone in sight. And this tutorial on making crape paper roses over at House of Smith
Mixed together, flour, water and salt to make a paste.
USed a punch ball from the dollar store
Hung from shower rod to dry (any drips landed in the shower!)
Cut an opening in the bottom with an exacto knife and punched holes along the edges
Created tabs out of cardboard so the goodies wouldn't fall out
and tied all of the ribbons on to it for the kids to pull on.
Filled it with yummy snacks (Annie's bunnies, all fruit roll-ups, nutrigrain bars, fruit snacks etc
some kids pulling on the strings.
