Pinata

Water
Paint and brushes 

Instructions:
Blow up balloons and twist to the shape you wish to make them (see our balloon crafts page). Tie the end then twist or tape balloons together to make your shapes. 

Tear newspaper into strips about one to two inches wide.

Dip the strips of newspaper in the paste and place on the balloon, smoothing out the strips. 
Cover the balloon with one layer then dry. Leave a small portion of the balloon uncovered so you can pop the balloon later.

When dry and hard, paint the pinata with tempera poster paints or decorate as desired.

If you wish the pumpkin to sit flat, then put a damp cloth on the bottom of it until it softens and sits flat then let it sit a few hours to dry.

Place eys, nose and a mouth on it with a black marker or cut them out.

You can fill your pumpkin with candy by inserting a hole large enough to fill it if you wish.  This could also be used as a pinata.
