I looked up beach ball piñatas and they weren't too bad in price but the shipping was high so I decided to make one myself.
I think the last time I did anything like this was 4th grade, so of course I looked up how to make a piñata but created the beach ball myself.
I used a perfectly round balloon $1.00
Equal parts flour and water
Crepe paper $1.00 each x 6 colors $6.00
String that I already had so basically I saved $15.00
It took me a total of about 5 days to let the newspaper dry then did another layer let it dry then added the crepe paper and waited for it to dry.
I still need to add candy and close off the top.
Can't wait to watch the kids break it open.
It was also a fun project for the kids to work on since it was messy :)
