DIY Mini Pinatas

DIY Mini Pinatas


Happy Fiesta Friday!  Every fiesta needs a pinata, and I have a simple method for making miniature pinatas with elementary-aged children.  They require no papier mache, no cardboard, and no candy (thus, no sugar-high!)!  Simply color, cut, fold, and glue to make adorable, fiesta-worthy pinatas.

DIY Pinatas for Kids


  • Templates
  • Crayons
  • Scissors
  • Glue


  • Print templates (found below).  You will need at least one template per child.


  • Color the sheet


  • Cut out the shape


  • Fold on every line and make a definite crease
  • Securely glue the tabs underneath


  • Let dry

And there you have it!  If you want, you can put a small piece of candy on the inside of each pinata and attach a string to one side.


Happy Fiesta Friday! What are you bringing to the party?

  1. Awh, these are so cute! Thanks for sharing the template too. 🙂 I like the idea of adding a small piece of candy, but then again, you have to break all the beautiful work. Happy FF, and have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
