First we planned the get-together for the gals and Dad can have a few hours with the kids. We gals dressed up and brought munchies. We also had a home-made big-girl pinata. Yup, the funny thing filled with stuff that you get blind-folded and swing at with a bat. Of course, because with alcohol on the menu, we did the pinata early in the evening.
Some tips not in the video: wear disposable gloves, don't make the wheat paste too runny because it will take forever to dry, and don't hang your drying pinata by the balloon stem. The drying paper forms points and will pop the balloon!
From here. it's like a normal pinata event. Blind fold, stick, turning the batter, waiting for the crack and going through the loot!
