Pinata Making Party - I need some help making pinatas for a kids charity event

I need some help, so I'm asking you wonderful ladies for help. I received an order today for 16 Coronavirus Pinata plus 16 Pinata prize bundles for a kids charity event that is happening on the 19th. I gave them a discount on the pinatas and am delivering them to their event on the 19th at no charge. I could really use help making the pinatas. So I thought why not have a pinata making party! I'll supply pizza and drinks. You'll get to learn how to make a pinata 😉 And most importantly the kids who will get to beat these up will have a ton of fun. We'll start at 1:30pm and go for a few hours. Come for any amount of time you want, it doesn't have to be the whole 3 or 4 hours. This will be at my house, I will post my address on Sunday morning. I live behind the Sprouts on Lemay Ave & Drake Rd in Fort Collins. If you have questions let me know.

I encourage you to bring questions or topics you would like to talk about. I’ll also throw out questions or topics for us to discuss to get the conversation going. From time to time I’ll share practices to help support you on your personal growth journey and we can even have guest speakers come to talk about topics you would like more support on.
