Boys & Girls Club members use creativity to create piñatas


Boys & Girls Clubs of West Central Missouri members were busy making piñatas Wednesday afternoon during the summer program hosted at Parkview Elementary School. Dylan Davis tears newspaper into strips so he could dip it into a flour-and-water solution before applying it to his piñata. The project was coordinated by Marcella Spahr, Boys & Girls Club program manager for Washington Elementary School.

The members of the Boys & Girls Club of West Central Missouri first blew up balloons then added the pasted newsprint. After several layers of pasted newspaper strips, and after drying, members will paint the piñatas.

Marcella Spahr, club project manager, said the children would paint the piñatas, fill them with candy, hang them on a string and take them outside to break them open next week.

Not worried about getting paste on his hands, Xzavier Morris, places strips of wet newspaper over his piñata creation Wednesday. The children were placing several layers of newspaper over the piñata to make it more difficult to break open.
