Ahoy there me hearties...
There's a party on the decks!
Landlubbers and buccaneers are invited to create a Piñata!

Build a piñata out of news paper and tape.
Make the piñata so that you are able to break it. 
Also make a strong stick / bat so you can hit the piñata.
You have 40 minutes!

A group of 4 - 5 people;

Unlimited tape (but you will be judged on how little you use)

Measuring tape/measuring stick.

After you have created your piñata:
Measure the volume/area of your pinata then smash it in till it breaks. (You get to eat the sweets at the end!!!)

2.What would you do differently next time?
3.Where is the math in this Pirate Challenge?
