I think Plex turned out pretty good, don't you think? Of course his life span was quite short. Poor thing. The kids absolutely demolished him in a matter of seconds.
Instructions:
collect all your cereal boxes for months. Cut them out in the shape you think he should be. Tape it together. Then do the paper mache thing. You know: flour and water. Soak strips of magazine or newspaper and cover everything with it. Let it dry. Then paint it and you're done. I forgot a step. Don't forget to arrange for some way to hang the pinata. It's a lot easier if you do it before the paper mache part. I threaded a pipe cleaner in and out of the back and then the twisted it together so it looked like a loop. Don't paper mache over it. At the end you just tie a string or cord on the loop and you can hang it up.
I love to do crafts but I'm really bad at instructions. I just kind of made it up as I went. If you really want to do a Plex pinata you can ask me specifics if you need to.
