Title: Paper craft: Piņata (Pablo, Backyardigans)
Post by: prettyinkpink on January 07, 2009 10:29:54 AM
My 2 years old nephew loves this penguin so I made for him a piņata from newspaper sheets, cornstarch paste and crepe papers for decoration. He was so thrilled about it that refused to take his nap!

I love the Backyardigans! Haha. This is wonderful. I've never been able to bring myself to make a pinata, it might be more bitter than it is sweet!

Awww, Pablo!! We LOVE Pablo at our house. We call him my thirteen month old's boyfriend because she giggles every time he pops up on screen. Too cute!

i have a fond memory of when I was a kid my mom making a paper mache pig for my little sister's birthday...the only problem was that she put so many layers of paper mache no one could break it  ;D the adults ended up taking the pig down from its string and letting the kids go wild on it lol.

This looks awesome. great job.

Thank you! In fact my nephew doesn't want to break it because it's Pablo! Now the piņata turn into a candy dispenser for him and he so happy. At the end is the only thing that I want, see him happy  ;D

you have just made my year.

my daughter turns 4 next week and i wanted a piņata for her (i love the idea of small children hitting stuff with sticks) but the only kind you can get over here are donkey (Burro) shape and she's just not that interested in them lol!

I love yours, it really does look just like pablo!

Thank you so much! In fact I made this one really fast so one week is perfect for you, if you want to try it. Happy birthday for your little girl!
