Cat pinata, before and after

My nieces and nephews enjoy when I make pinatas for their birthdays. My younger niece asked me to make her a cat pinata, because "Aunt Rene likes cats and I like cats."

Before. I made the shape from a balloon, newspaper, and an empty box.

I used the traditional newspaper dipped in flour and water, adding a couple of layers each day. After:

I used pipe cleaners for the whiskers, and cardstock paper for the nose and eyes. I think it turned out pretty well. :-)

That is very cute. The only time I tried to make one it was so hard it would not break!

That is great! The finished kitty looks way too cool to break.

I'll watch over you, Lucy

I love how Ringo's paw is wrapped over Lucy.
