Pinwheels are a nostalgic favorite that have delighted kids for generations. They are so simple to make and with a little imagination you can find new ways to use these clever little whirligigs for parties, decorations and good old-fashioned fun! Since they are so quick to make, you could make a bunch of giant ones in coordinating colors and stick them in flower pots around the patio to create festive party décor. Also great for a unique summer birthday decoration!
Just because it's called a piñata doesn't mean this party decoration needs to be filled with candy and hung from the ceiling for the entire party. We love the idea of using piñatas a standing decorations for all to enjoy. This Elmo piñata marked the spot where hot pizzas were served in this Chef Elmo Kitchen Birthday Party. You can always fill it with treats and invite guests to break open the piñata in the traditional fashion for a fun party activity at the end of the festivities.
