“WHAT is that?” that’s what my husband said when he came into the kitchen and saw this on the counter!
Any ideas what it might be? Hint: it’s for the birthday party!
I got this idea and pattern from Manic Mommies, but I wasn’t able to find all the Styrofoam shapes and sizes so mine doesn’t look quite the same. First I had to paint it, white and then Yellow, leaving the mouth white. I wanted him to look a little scared…
So I picked this face from the Lego head images I found. And it’s finished! It was quite the sturdy pinata, out of all the one’s I’ve made (I try to do one for each kids parties) it took the longest to break. Each kid got three tries before it finally broke! It would have been nice if it wasn’t quite so sturdy since quite a bit of the candy was pretty beat up by the time it broke, but I’ll take cute over breakable any day!

Wow! How did you get the foam shapes out?
I didn’t. I kept them in to help hold the shape, they are only in the top and bottom. but because the poster board was so strong it did take quite a while for the boys to break it! But the boys didn’t mind having extra turns!
I love that he looks scared, he’s about to be hit w/ a bat 🙂
I love him too! I considered doing another one for our 3rd lego party, but I kind of hate do to the same thing twice so we just didn’t have a pinata that year… But I do love him!

Just caught the link back to our site – love your piñata! Well done!! It is a sturdy little pinata, but I’m always worried it will break too soon – they always break eventually.
funny how it doesn’t always link through the first time, I updated it and that why you got it! It was a great pinata!
