Dragon Party Prep

In preparation for her Dragon Party next weekend, Alex and I decided to make a very special pinata.  We kind of winged it, but it seems to be working so far!
I found a recipe for paper mache online (1 part water: 1 part flour + a pinch of salt), we asked the neighbors if we could raid their recycling bins for old newspapers, blew up some balloons and got to work.  Alex is NOT a fan of getting goopy, so this was a stretch for her to help with the first step. 
She was all about painting the dried pieces though!  Then we hot glued the tail piece (fashioned around more newspaper), some spikes made from her kindergarten watercolor papers, and she made a cute little dragon face. 
Next stop:  filling and hanging!
