I made these mini piñatas for a little cinco de mayo party we had this morning for some local kiddos. I won't give step by step instructions, but if you are interested you can see pretty much the same thing here. I made some minor changes through trial and error, but it's close enough. I used water balloons to get them as mini as I could.After I covered them with paper mache, I rigged up a way to hang them up so they could dry fully. I have to say, I was pretty proud of myself for that :) I filled them with some small toys and candy and the kids seemed to really like them. They took far too long to make, but it was fun and a great excuse to get caught up on some shows.

Do you have any fun plans for cinco de mayo? We'll have some yummy mexican food, and hopefully a few siestas! Have a fantastic weekend, friends!
