I only threaded a single piece of the 6 lb tested fishing line through it and it wasn't enough for it to hang. Had I been smart enough to think of using a sewing needle to assist when threading--I probably would have threaded more layers...or like I will do if I make a pinata again...use a heavier dutier (I think I am making that phrase up?) string/ribbon/stronger material. Thankful my friends were able to perform a little surgery so we could try and hang it again. (My sweet friend Sarah is not pictured but was very helpful...her arm is in the first picture if that counts. (c:) Unfortunately we had to do "surgery" a little too close together for it to hang without tearing.
But Mike saved the day and held the pinata. He was a brave man. (; The kids loved it and it really was worth all the effort.
Taking a swing! Both Reid and Lilly hit it so softly every time. Precious!
Will meant business!
Brody taking a crack at it.
At some point it suffered an eye injury. Ha!
After all of the little ones had several turns...
We let Caleb at it. It took him a few HARD swings to bust it all of the way open. I was pretty impressed with the strength of the pinata since we didn't even mess with a blindfold.
