Papier Mache

Have you seen the pinatas they sell in the stores these days? You pull ribbons off the bottom, and one breaks open the hatch that rains down the goodies. What happened to the good old days of whacking it with a stick? Too violent for kids these days, I suppose.

Well ever since I told Markus that real pinatas are opened by hitting it with a stick, he's been wanting to make one. Today we began the process, and these guys did such a great job! They cut paper strips, mixed the paste, and very carefully placed the strips on the balloon form. Now we wait for it to dry before we move on to the next step.

I love home schooling.

    Well done, mama! The boys look really into it. I’m sure they’ll have a blast breaking it apart.
