Business Idea - Pinata Artiste
Kids adore pinatas. They’re pretty and when I was little appealed to my inner, greed demon. Although it was a rare time when my brother cooperated completely in the pursuit of candy, we had an unspoken arrangement that we would tag team the other kids lurking around the pinata, thus doubling our chances of a decent booty. Ah, the good old days. Anyway, if you’re interested in seeing the dark side of your child and her friends, string up a pinata. Better yet, go into business making them. They’re made from papier mache, so the materials are mucho cheapo. You can either follow instructions off the web or from a library book or let your creativity go wild with custom shapes, maybe a witch’s hat for a Harry Potter party, etc. Custom pack it with goodies ordered by Mom and charge extra for the service.
