Now that the school year is pretty much over and thousands of children will be sitting around our homes, all summer long, why not start thinking fun and interesting ways to keep them busy as well? One sure fire way to almost always achieve this goal is the piñata. You can’t really go wrong with these mostly paper mâché creations... especially if birthday parties are just around the corner as well. Kids of all ages and sizes will come together for a chance to bust one of these babies open and grab as much candy as they can for their personal stashes.
