Instead of getting a bunny shaped pinata, and subjecting said bunny pinata with a lashing, we decided to make a bunny themed punch pox for Grace's Bunny Themed Birthday Party.
I decided to share just a few tips for making your own punch box (for the full tutorial, you'll have to visit 'a Casarella).
Finding a thick box is the key, it makes it easier to cut your holes and cover. I found my boxes at Aldi, the thick cardboard boxes their produce comes in AND, I painted it white, with regular household paint.
To personalize the outside of your punch box, incorporate your theme. Since Grace's party was a bunny theme, I cut out some 2 inch bunny silhouettes and grabbed double sided tape...
And I gently placed them centered in the punch box hole.
Though I used bunnies, the possibilities are endless to personalize the punch box but even plain, it still makes for a fun party game.
The kids, well, they certainly liked being encouraged to 'punch' something and retrieve a prize.
*I filled the punch box with prizes I found at Goodwill. Right after Easter, Goodwill got in a shipment of new Target brand Easter toys (stuffed animals and crafts). I was able to find a prize for each punch box hole for .50 cents, spending $6 total on prizes.
