'Tis the season for making the annual Christmas piñata in my household. Last year a rather mangy cat kept the niece and nephew and the neighbours' kids amused for a long, long, l-o-n-g time (maybe fewer layers this year...). And then there was the supplementary just-in-case one, the 'piñata of shame', covered in pictures of people who well deserved to be whacked with a stick. This year, thanks to instructions in the local paper on making a papier-mâché piggy bank, I think I'll try a big pink pig piñata. I think the paper may have pinched the 'recipe' from here.
