End of the School Year Piñatas

Hello, We R Memory Keepers readers! Laura here with a fun idea to celebrate the end of the school year with your kids. My kids work hard all year long, and it is a big achievement to move up to the next grade in school. I thought it would be fun to celebrate my daughter and son moving on to 1st and 4th grade, respectively, with a candy filled piñata.

I used the number one and number four DIY Party Mini Piñatas to signify the grades they were moving to at the end of the school year. The Mini piñatas and fringe are so easy to work with – you can create these special treats in no time!

Start by filling your piñata with candy using the opening on the bottom.

Then wrap the piñata from the bottom up to the top using the DIY Party fringe tape. As you work, you will trim any excess fringe off with scissors. On areas where the piñata has an angled edge you can wrap the fringe around the flat edges first. Trim and then add a piece of fringe along the angled edge.

My kids were really excited to open their treats on the last day of school. And I am a proud mom to a 1st and 4th grader now. Where does the time go?
