Tonya here… St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and if you are looking for a fun party idea, then I’ve got the perfect thing for you, mini pull-string rainbow piñatas.
These rainbow pinatas with a pot of gold are perfect for classrooms, to fill with candy for your own children, or to hand out at your St. Patrick’s Day party.
What you need:
- Cardboard box
- Crepe paper streamers – purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, black, and gold
- Packaging tape
- Glue stick
- Scissors and a box cutter
- Candy, or other fun St. Patrick’s Day treats such as tattoos, stickers, green balloons, and more.
Step 1: Sketch your mini rainbows and pots of golf onto the cardboard and cut them out. You will also need to cut strips of cardboard approximately 2.5 inches wide.
Step 2: Attach the strips of cardboard to the top and bottom section of each rainbow using packaging tape.
Step 3: Cut a flap in the bottom of the rainbow (underneath where the pot of gold will be).
Step 4: Cut strips of crepe paper streamers, and then cut a fringe into each. Beginning from the bottom, and then working toward the top, attach the crepe paper streamers using the glue stick.
Step 5: Glue the cardboard pot of gold onto the rainbow, and then attach strips of black and gold crepe paper using glue.
Step 6: Poke a hole into the flap underneath the pinata, and tie string onto it. Fill your pinata with treats, and then close the flap.
