I mentioned that we had a Minecraft theme for Talon's 7th birthday. Well, for his 6th birthday it was Plants vs Zombies. He was absolutely obsessed with this game, and both of my kids are still quite fascinated by zombies in general.
This isn't really a tutorial, per se, but you should be able to use it as a guide or for inspiration for your own Plants vs Zombies pinatas, should you feel the need.
I thought making a pinata was such a good idea. I'm going to come right out and say that it's a lot more work than it sounds like, especially when you're not making just some generic pinata. These were suppose to look like something in specific. You can see that I used tissue paper on the walnut, but that was so time consuming that we just painted the pea shooter.
Anyway, here's what they looked like hanging up via a ton of yarn. I advise using something stronger, for your own peace of mind. Either way, these pinatas were a hit!
