Unbreakable Piñata

This week, my coworker and I hosted a birthday bash for three members of our team. It was magical 🙂

JKJKJK. It wasn’t magical as in unicorn magical, but it was certainly memorable. And oh man did I use SnapChat to its full potential to document every moment.

As part of the celebration, Martin and I created a piñata representing the company’s logo. Now, this was all from scratch and neither one of us has ever built a piñata before. Well, like this at least.

I used resources that were found around me, except for a few exceptional items.

We began with sourcing some cardboard. I decided to recycle a large rectangular cardboard box that originally housed a steel space heater for the office. (Notice how I mentioned “Steel.” You’ll soon find out why!)

We did some shopping at our local Party City and grabbed some fun piñata stuffers. It was very minimal and not too much candy as a majority of us in the office don’t really eat candy, so I thought it’d be fun to throw in some gold coins!

The materials I used to help create this are:

  • A pair of scissors
  • Glue
  • Ceiling Hook
  • Rope
  • Tissue paper (color of your choice)
  • 1 Washer

And that’s about it. It was an amazing experience and so much fun TRYING so hard to break this piñata. But as I mentioned, it housed a steel machine – so you can only imagine how damn sturdy this thing was. Could have been made out of steel!

Anyways, after many failed attempts by several of us, we decided to just preserve the pinata. Guess what! This is a photo of the piñata AFTER the party. Yeah, doesn’t really look like it got into a fight with a pinata stick, much.

Oh, did I mention that one of my coworkers broke the stick trying to break the piñata?!

Tah tah for now,
