You can make some great things with Paper Mache. Here are some ideas to help you and your kids get started!

MAKE A PINATA
Grade: K-6
Age: 4-14
Submitted by: Wendy Payne, a homeschooler from Missouri.

Objectives:
Creating sculpture with a theme.

What you Need:
round balloons
old newspapers
flour
water
tempera paints
string
scissors
candy

What You Do:
This project takes about 5 days to complete but doing a little each day makes it fun.

1. Blow up the balloon not too tight.

2. Make a flour and water paste.

3. Cut the newspapers into strips.

4. Dip the newspaper strips into the flour/water paste and apply to the balloon.

5. Let dry over night.

6. Repeat this process for 4 more days.

7. On the 5th day let completely dry and begin to paint.[/b]

8. Small children can finger paint and older children can paint with a brush.

9. After it is completely dried, cut a hole in the top to add the candy.

10. Add candy.

11. Poke holes on opposite sides to put the string through.

12. Tie onto a pole.

13. Enjoy like a regular pinata. [/b]
