When I was growing up, we had piñatas for our birthdays -- made from scratch. My parents would go through the whole papier mache process: Blowing up a balloon, pasting over with strips of newspaper, covering with tissue paper. As we got older, we'd help out. I still love the idea of traditionally made piñatas, but it's hard to find the time to make them. Not to mention, they're actually really hard for little kids to break! So when I came across the idea of making a piñata from a paper bag, I got excited. Here's a way to make this craft simpler, faster, and even easier to break.
