Last week was all about "Championship" preparations. We had to make ribbons (see previous post), collect supplies, make snacks, and most importantly make a pinata. In a small boy's world, pinatas are awesome because they are filled with candy and you can smash them apart with baseball bats.
I decided that since Ian was going to be making his own pinata, we would not go the paper mache construction route. Instead, we took a paper grocery bag and covered the outside with strips of fringed tissue paper.
It turned out perfectly!My sister kindly took pictures of the kids smashing this beautiful creation, but I was having trouble with the files, so you'll just have to imagine a batch of toddlers and older kids bashing away at it until it broke open and the screaming hoard descended on the tasty loot. A fitting end to a Sports Championship.
