After 4 days of messy and sticky paper-mache-ing, the CAPI kids had created 4 strong giant piñatas. As the paste dried the balloon shells became harder and stronger. 

Step two for the piñatas is a relief. We were happy to know that the hard work was done and that the end was in sight. "Now is the time" to paint our beautiful piñatas. We started with solid coats in 4 different colors. I chose light colors- gray, pale orange, yellow, and light green. The painting goes so quickly with 6 brushes helping at once.

The painted balloons make the the final piñatas easier to imagine. We decided that the piñatas will become 4 giant creepy eye balls. Look out for step three!
