Hello, I'm now going to show you how to make the paper bag piñata. The paper bag piñata is an easy piñata for children to make and making it independently gives them more ownership and enjoyment out of it. So the materials that you would need are: paper bag, your treats, newspaper, tissue paper, a pair of scissors, a hole punch and string. The first thing to do is fill the bottom with your treats and then taking pieces of the newspaper crunching them up and stuffing the bag. You’ll want to fill the bag with newspaper about one inch from the top, okay good, then fold your bag and flap the top over and take your hole punch and punch holes all along the top of the bag. Then with your string you’re going to lace the string through the holes that you’ve punched, this will allow you to hang the piñata when you’re ready to play the piñata game. Okay, then after you’ve laced it, tie the two end together and it is ready for hanging, okay, our child might need help with this part of this activity and decorating it can also be done by using crayons or markers or the tissue. Now your paper bag piñata is ready to decorate.
