Piñata Fun with Kids

Hello everyone, Wendy here today to share some Pinata fun that my kids and I had recently.  When I saw the mini pinatas, I knew this would make a perfect craft project for my kids and I to do, but how to decorate them in a somewhat mess free manner?  Enter the magical fringe tape and you have a solution which is mess free and easy for any age to participate in!

The fun began when my children ripped open the packages of pinatas to pick their favorite design.  They each chose a color from the fun fringe tape to begin with and some started right away.

It is much easier if you start your tape on the bottom of your project and work up, but not all the little ones listened and so we had fringe tape going every which way.  Since the tape is designed so well, we were easily able to remove some of the pieces and turn them around and they still stuck.  Even with tape going many different directions the pinatas still turned out really cute and all the kids were proud of their work.

We even discovered that you can use markers on your pinatas to draw in some details such as eyes, a mouth, or even coloring the fringe tape to make some brown hair!

Design Tip:  Cutting the fringe tape to fit the smaller sides before sticking down the fringes is much easier for the kids to get a clean look.  The tape on the fringe is very sticky, but it can be pulled up to fix the placement for a short time period.

My children had such fun decorating their pinatas and it was such a great mess free activity to do together and build some fun memories!  Our cute little pinatas are now on display in our home as we have already enjoyed the Easter candy that they held!  Have you tried these with your kids yet, what tips and tricks did you find?
