Debbie and Tracy from "This Grandma Is Fun" Blog tell us how to make a Pinata Shirt. This activity will be the biggest hit at your family reunion!

What you'll need:

  • A teeshirt that is the size of someone in your family that will be the 'runner'. This can be Grandpa, Dad, Uncle or even an older teenager.
  • Lots of candy that is preferably not chocolate.
  • Glue Gun and glue.
  • Paper grocery bag or poster

Instructions:

  • Insert the grocery bag or poster inside of your shirt so the glue won`t seep and stick to the back of your shirt.
  • With your glue gun, glue small amounts onto your candy shirt and then press the candy into the glue which is why you don`t want any chocolate candy! Cover the whole shirt front and back.
  • Give every child that is participating a bag or something to hold their candy.
  • The candy 'runner' starts to run and the kids are let loose to try and catch themĀ and rip off as much candy as they can.
