EASY DIY STEPS TO MAKE A Piñata IN THE SHAPE OF A Corona virus
1- Blow up a balloon
2- Cut newspaper into strips (both long and short)
3- Mix equal parts (1:1) water : flour in a bucket (this will be your papier-mâché mix)
4- Dunk newspaper strips in papier-mâché mix one at a time & spread over balloon.
5-Cover your whole balloon until you no longer see your balloon.
6- Let dry
7- Glue (hot glue works best) toilet paper rolls around your papier-mâché balloon (these will be the red spike proteins that stick out of the coronavirus!)
8- Paint your papier-mâché coronavirus !
9- Take a pin/needle & poke through the papier-mâché to POP your balloon
10- Grownups, Cut a small hole in your papier-mâché to fill your coronavirus with some treats! Then re-cover your hole with tape + paint
11- Tape string or fishing line for hanging
Voila! You now have yourself a Corona virus Piñata!
Happy Quarantine Art Making!
Stay Safe, Healthy & Creative! ❤️

+food coloring (choose any color!)
+fun tiny objects, glitter, etc. (to sprinkle inside your bottle) * ONLY a little!
1. Sprinkle or drop your tiny objects/ glitter/etc inside your bottle.
2. Add about 1/3 oil into your bottle (if you have a little funnel, even easier!)
3. Fill the rest of your bottle with water (leave a tiny bit of space at the top)
