This week at For Fun we are making anything but a card. I'm in birthday mode for DS so while it may not look impressive from here, I spent several nights making DS a dinosaur's egg piñata. He is obsessed with dinosaurs and wanted a dinosaur theme for his party with his friends. Mommy made a paper mache egg. It was spray painted green and then covered with an onion bag. I then sprayed it again with gold glitter paint to give it the texture of lizard skin. None of the photos turned out well and since the kids had a wonderful time, I won't be able to take more photos.
For anyone that wants to make a piñata, I recommend three layers. I used four and we broke the hockey stick. DH had to give the kids the metal handle from my broom to break it open. I was terrified! Inside I had skipping ropes, sidewalk chalk, bubble solution, small amounts of play dough, plastic dinosaurs and only a single box of Smarties for each child. I highly recommend Walmart, the day after Easter for non-candy prizes!
