Directions

1

Inflate six balloons, tie closed, and tie a short ribbon to each balloon.

2

Combine the flour and water in a bowl. Place half the newspaper pieces in the flour-water mixture until thoroughly soaked.

3

Cover each balloon with a layer of soaked newspaper.

4

Hang the balloons up from the ribbons until the newspaper layer is dry. While they dry, soak the remaining newspaper pieces.

5

Cover each balloon in a second layer of soaked newspaper. Hang the balloons and let them dry overnight.

6

Use scissors to poke a hole near each balloon's knot. Deflate and remove the balloon from the pinata.

7

Cut the crepe paper into strips. Cut a fringe on the bottom of each crepe paper strip.

8

Use the glue to attach the crepe paper strips around each pinata, layering the strips over each other to completely cover the newspaper.

9

Once the glue is dry, fill each mini pinata with KISSES Chocolates. Use the opening left by the balloon. Widen slightly with scissors, if needed.

10

Use scissors to poke a small hole on each side of the opening.

11

Wind a piece of ribbon through the two holes. Pull up both ends of the ribbon and tie to make a loop.
