My daughter Marijke turned 8 in october, and she wanted a unicorn themed birthday party.
That can be arranged 🙂
So we went out and looked for unicorn themed items, such as diadems, balloons, stickers, lots of stuff!
Last week it was finally here: party-time!
We made a unicorn shaped pinata for the party. This is not difficult, all you need is old boxes, tinfoil for the horn, crepe paper, and a glue gun. And treats to fill the pinata of course!
I used THIS and THIS site as examples to make our unicorn. Unfortunately I didn’t make any pictures of the DIY process, but I do have pictures of the result:
It’s a cutie, right?!
I love how it turned out. Almost a shame to smash it. Almost, because smashing is fun 😉
Shouldn’t you be a DIY-er; Pinata’s are for sale in various (internet) shops.
At the party we looked for a treasure (with unicorn diadems in it), we did some watercoloring, decorated a cupcake (and ate it, nomnomnom) and we made unicorn slime (with glitters!).
Smashing the pinata was a lot of fun. Next time I will make the pinata a bit less sturdy, it took quite some time to smash it. Although this was also an advantage, as everyone could have a go at it 🙂
Hitting the pinata with a blindfold was difficult, so we removed it and hit it like we meant it!
One of her friends brought a party popper (with confetti in it) that she wanted to use after the pinata was broken. This was also a lot of fun!
It was a very merry party, everybody had lots of fun!
Now we will wait and see what she wants her theme to be next year 🙂
