Turkey pinata


So I am planning a Farm party as you may have read. Sunday night my daughter and I started to make our own pinata that we hope will end up looking like a turkey. Don't worry photos will follow. I thought every kid should know the fun of paper mache. So we mix up a batch and she is sitting on the counter and in about 2 minutes she is covered in pinata glue. She is either using pieces that are 4 feet long or as big as her thumb. After I put her to bed she was still itching from the paste stuck to her elbow.
I am trying to explain not to cover the square I drew at the top as we need a place to put the candy in. True to her Mother's heart her eyes light up- Candy??? Of course, I explain, the point of a pinata is to smash it to bits to get the candy out. (Well now we are extra interested.) So yesterday we put on the second coat. Today I pop the balloon and get a look inside. Some places are like cement and other places you can see light through but it is a huge pinata all right and soon will be full of candy and toys.
We plan on covering it with tissue and a giant tail tomorrow with some friends of my daughter.
Again stand by for some crazy pictures- Maybe we should name him??
What do you think??

Sounds great! Generally speaking it's not really wise to name farm animals, especially ones you plan on eating. ;)

Your right so maybe we will just bet on who will win in this fight.
20lb Turkey or the 20 kids swinging the bat !!!
I can't wait. I may have to tape this one.
