    Go to http://familycrafts.about.com/od/makeapinata/How_t... Winter’s recipe is inaccurate and I think that you might ruin a pot, especially if you add glue. A cooked mixture is 1:5 water and flour, and an uncooked mixture is 1:2. Or you can add a bit of each until it is a little thicker than milk.

    Once you've made the paste Winter described, tear strips of newspaper, soak them in the paste, and cover a balloon that's the size you want the pinata to be. It's best to work slowly, letting thin layers dry before adding the next layer.

    Once it's completely dry, pop and remove the balloon.
