Bee and Lou thought it might be fun to have a pinata for Grandpa's birthday. Since we had a ton of candy on hand for Halloween and it would soon be leaving the house, I thought this was a fine time to make one.
We mixed up some Elmers glue (like a whole bottle), water (started with @ 1/2 cup), and flour (@1 c) paste. A few layers of newspaper strip later and we had a soggy pinata.
There was much debate over what the finished pinata would be. Bee wanted a heart, Lou wanted a pumpkin. Daddy helped decide on a fish, which was my vote. After being painted blue, his mouth really started to take fish shape, which was just a coincidence, since I did nothing special other than hang him when he was only 90% dry.
