How To Make a Piñata
This page from familycrafts.about.com gives instructions for making a piñata. If doing paper mache I would suggest using half white glue and half water with the paper strips as it dries to a nice hard finish much faster than flour and water. Just be sure to cover
the working surface with a plastic tablecloth, or my favorite, wax paper.
