I love piñatas. There’s something really satisfying about smashing a
colorful sculpture to pieces as heaps of candy scatter everywhere. It’s been years since I’ve been to a party where a piñata was the highlight so this year, I’m determined to incorporate it into my Cinco de Mayo festivities. Although a piñata is not the easiest thing to make from scratch, I will say that the process was so much fun – I can’t wait to make more!

The first step is create the core of the piñata using paper mâché . Blow
up the punching balloon and tie it into a knot. Take off the rubber band on the opposite side and place a piece of tape over the protruding section.
