Homemade Frozen Olaf Pinata

Children love pinatas. I not sure exactly why. Maybe its the spray of candy when they explode or maybe it is permission to hit something with a bat. Either way they are fun! At our birthday parties we generally have a lot of kids, usually more than 20. Ages 10 on down. We need a pinata that can stand up to each child getting at least 3 hits. The store bought ones are not that strong. So each year I make my own out of the box that the helium tank comes in. Any solid box will work though. I fill it with odds and ends, usually left over candy, temporary tattoos, mini bubbles, or any else that fits the theme, ect. 
Here is what you need:
1 sturdy boxconstruction paperglue stickscissorsropebat
First wrap your box with construction paper. I staple it on, to get it in the right place, then add a little glue behind it, and finish by stapling the other side down. Cover the bottom. Save a piece to cover the top after you fill it.

Cut out eyes, nose, mouth, arms,  feet and hair. Olaf is kinda silly so these can be free hand cut out.



 Glue into place. Fold the and snowball feet and arms so they stick out. Fill with toys and candy. 
Use rope to go through top of box, poke holes in the sides and tie a sturdy knot. Loop over tree branch, swing set or what you have available. 
Have a dad pull the rope to raise and lower pinata as the kids swing away. We don't bother blindfolding and spinning the kids first we just line them up by age and let the littlest go first yielding a t-ball bat.
