Pinata for All Saints party..

Today I was walking through our cheap 'Dollar and Sense' shop and came across some pinatas...I had actually thought of making one a few days ago but let it go when I realised that I had no time for such a big craft project. Then I saw this dragon...and immediately I thought of St George and the dragon.
So I went internet searching for St George images and found this one, I trimmed it down and printed it up on cardboard, then I flipped it with the mirror tool in paintshop and printed it again on cardboard. I carefully cut out both images so that they could go back to back.

Then I stuck the two front legs and the head of St George's horse on either side of the dragon and stuck the halo, cape, horse's tail and back legs together....and it was done.

The children are just SO excited and cannot wait to enjoy this on All Saints day!!

My boys think you are the cleverest Anne - they just love this. You are a genius. Sigh..I have given up on All Saints Costumes this year - Abby may step in. But I just want to get my act together for Advent.

Thank you for all of the ideas. I have been looking for ways to make All Saints Day more special than Halloween. The games will really help!
