PiÃ±atas are fun but who wants to spend a lot of money on something that is just going to be beaten and broken with a stick? Instead of spending all of your money buying a piÃ±ata, just make your own out of a paper bag. Simply fill the bag with the treats and prizes found in a piÃ±ata and close the bag securely. Decorate the outside of the bag in whatever manner you wish. You can add crepe paper to make it look more like an authentic piÃ±ata or you can mimic some of the ideas from making a paper bag animal puppets to make a piÃ±ata of a certain shape and likeness.
Paper bag crafts for kids are an inexpensive way for them to practice being creative and for them to use their imaginations.
