Birthday Parties have been one of the real challenges with our new rules. There aren't many kids toys produced in the Inland Northwest and there certainly aren't any pinatas. The benefit is that we are having to learn as a family how to make things we normally would buy. These pictures tell the story of learning to make a flamingo pinata. We got the idea here.
We didn't give it enough time to dry so when we popped the body ballon it deflated. I stuffed it with newspapers and we put the candy in the head, which was drier than the body. We didn't have time to decorate it so we slung it up by the neck and gave the kids a wack at it. Noel said it was the best part of the party.
