Monster Book of Monsters Pinata from Harry Potter

Monster Book of Monsters PinataThis Monster Book of Monsters Pinata was just the thing for our “Care of Magical Creatures” themed birthday party. It looks amazing, but is actually really simple to do. All you need is a cereal box, a hanger, some tissue, a few printables, and vampire teeth.

And while hitting “The Monster Book of Monsters” repeatedly with a bat is exactly what Harry Potter would do, my boy decided it was too amazing to break. In fact, he absolutely refused to hit it. So I made a quick piñata out of a paper bag and the Monster Book of Monsters Pinata is now hanging in his bedroom. I didn’t mind. It made me feel like a million bucks that he liked it that much.


It wasn’t hard, but there are a lot of steps, so I put together a quick slide show tutorial that takes you through the steps.

In the slideshow, here are the files that are mentioned.

And what do you put in a Monster Book of Monsters pinata?
Lots of creepy, crawly candy, lemon drops, Harry Potter glasses and more vampire teeth! It was so funny to see the kids running around with Harry Potter glasses and vampire teeth. We were dying. And I don’t suggest trying to eat gummy worms while wearing the vampire teeth.
