    Here are the instructions for a brilliant Ninjago pinata!

    There are some amazing pinatas out there, but they can be a mighty pricey add-on to your party. If you have a bit of the arts and crafts about you and can spare half an hour a day for a few days (papier mache has to dry), making one could save you $$$ and look really good. To create a bit of little boy smash and bash at your party, you need the following:

    • A large latex balloon
    • Newspaper torn into strips
    • Papier Mache mix – mix together 1 part flour to 2 parts water.
    • Roll of colourful crepe ribbon (in your chosen Ninjago character colour – Red is good!)
    • Glue stick (like a prit stick or similar)
    • Yellow (lego yellow is ideal) piece of card
    • Black marker pen
    • String or Fishing tackle to hang it up
    • Goodies and prizes to fill it up
    1. Start by making the structure – blow up the balloon.
    2. Dip your strips of newspaper in the paste and start layering them on the balloon leaving a gap at the bottom where the balloon tie is, eventually a hole to fill it full of sweeties through. Wait for the first layer to dry before applying a second and finally a third layer.
    3. Once it’s all dry, pop the balloon and pull it out.
    4. Decorate it by gluing crepe strips around the papier mached  structure (pick a colour based on favourite character – see below for a picture of all of them. Kai’s the red one that many little boys like the best).
    5. Cut some fringing into the final strips of crepe.
    6. Cut out a rounded rectangle from your piece of card so it’s the right size for your ‘head’.Make sure the hole (through which the sweeties/toys are intended to be inserted) is at the top - so they don’t fall out.
    7. Using a black marker pen, draw on the eyes and eyebrows as shown here – or copy and paste the image below and print it out.
    8. Tuck your eyes in beneath and among this fringe to make the beginnings of a face and stick it down with glue.
    9. To hang your piñata, poke four holes around the opening of the piñata and thread a length of string/fishing wire through all the holes, securing it with some masking tape.
    10. Fill it with rubber snakes and penny chews!

    Now you have a proper Ninjago piñata and you can get all your budding Ninja’s practicing their Spinjitzu to break it open and release the goodies!
