DIY Sofia the First Party Piñata


As I was thinking of what games to conduct on Little Zoie’s birthday party at school, I wanted to add our usual ‘Pabitin’ game.  Preparing that game will need lots of goodies and candies which I know needs additional budget and I don’t have that for the moment.

Still reflecting on what goodies-giving-game I could add in the program, I ended searching YouTube for a DIY party piñata.  Initially, I found paper mache piñata which is too tedious work for me, then I finally found one that only needs boxes with a flap opening, sealed with a not-so-tight masking tape.

This DIY piñata doesn’t cost a lot since I already have the main materials: the box, glue, masking tape and lots of candies accumulated from Halloween to Christmas.  Don’t worry, I checked the best before dates of each pack of candies and I did not include those gummy candies.  I am hesitant of their expiration date and because I am giving them to kids, better to be sure so I did not include them in the piñata than have the poor kids eat them.

Anyway, my additional materials for this project was the printed image of Princess Sofia of Sofia the First, the birthday party theme; purple, white and green crepe papers; and violet and green yarns.  I was supposed to print a Prince James image to put on my second piñata but I wasn’t able to do so.  It was rather late when I decided to add another party piñata with Prince James picture.

I made two piñatas.  Purple one for the girls and the green one is for the boys.  Since the initial plan was only one piñata, I have only taken a few photos of how I did the purple piñata.
