I'd like to say that the Feast of Unleavened Bread does not get the hype it deserves. We have a directive to celebrate and feast for seven days, what's not to love about that? Even though it immediately follows Passover we should let it shine on it's own and have a separate celebration for it. What's the best way to do that? A matzah pinata, of course!
You will need: - a thin, square cardboard box (mine was about 33" by 33" by 4") -hot glue gun -glue sticks -cream crepe paper (I used this kind, it's made in the USA) -brown crepe paper -ribbon
The process of making a pinata is simple but a little repetitive. You'll definitely want a friend to chat with or something to listen to while you do it. Basically, what you're doing is cutting fringe into your crepe paper (though I suppose this is optional), and, starting at the bottom, hot gluing your crepe paper across the box. You will want to randomly disperse bits of the brown crepe paper to resemble the different shading on matzah.
Do this the whole way round your box, one side at a time, and attach your ribbon to the top if you're going to hang it up. Be sure to use plenty of hot glue to reinforce it. My box was almost three feet square, but feel free to make it whatever size you like!
If yours is as big as mine you will need two rolls of the cream crepe paper and one of the brown. Need more specifics? Studio DIY has a super detailed guide to making pinatas. Check it out here.
Word to the wise: fill your box with candies or goodies before beginning the pinata-fying process. It's way easier.
If you don't have the heart to bash this in with a bat, this still makes a fun decor piece or even a photo booth prop. What do you guys plan on doing to celebrate Unleavened Bread this year? If you make a pinata, be sure to share a picture with me on Instagram or Facebook!
