Paper Bag Pinata
June 14th, 2012 by Craftylocks

This craft also doubles as two party games, one of them is to make it, the other is to destroy it.

Whenever you get hold of a plain paper bag – keep it for that craft that is sure to come along. Although for this one you can use any paper bag, it does not matter if it is printed.
Cut pieces of tissue paper long enough to go around the bag and then fringe the strips by cutting half way into them along the long edge.
Starting at the bottom, glue the stip onto the bag, leaving the fringing hanging. Repeat with more strips, overlapping them, until the bag is covered. Fill the bag with treats and also paper scrunched up to pad it. Add string to hang it with, if it does not already have handles.
Hang up high and see if it takes longer to destroy than it did to make it. Ours took a while to destroy as the children had to throw balls to break it instead of using a stick.
