Piñata Ornaments: 20 Days of a Kid-Made Christmas

I am super excited to participate in the 20 Days of a Kid-Made Christmas Ornament hosted by Mama Miss. I will be joining a group of awesome mommy bloggers to bring you over 50 ornaments made by kids during 20 days.

Our ornaments are piñatas in honor of my book review: A Piñata in a Pine Tree: A Latino Twelve Days of Christmas.  For the ornaments we used rolls of paper towel, gift wrapping rolls, and of course toilet paper rolls. Colorful pieces of tissue paper, glue, ribbon, and candy! 



Have the children glue the scraps of tissue paper on to the toilet paper roll. Once they finish wrap the candy with tissue paper, and assist with tying with a ribbon on both ends. Make sure to leave a hoop to hang on the tree, and a ribbon at the bottom to pull the candy out of the piñata ornament. 

Once the candy is wrapped put inside the decorated toilet paper roll, and hang on your tree! :) 



Hope you enjoyed our kid-made Christmas ornament! Today I'll be joining two other wonderful bloggers

  1. These are so sweet Frances! They remind me a little bit of the Christmas crackers I've been introduced to since moving to southern Africa.

  2. These are awesome! They look so fun to make and I love how you reused cardboard rolls! And of course my daughter would love the candy part the best :)
