Curious Minotaur

My niece Emma just turned 11 this past week, and to commemorate the occasion she had a Percy Jackson themed birthday party. For those not in the know (like me), that means the party was basically in the theme of Greek mythology. Beth and I wanted to help out and were placed in charge of the tricky task of finding a pinata in the shape of a minotaur. Again, for those not in the know (me), a minotaur is basically an angry upright buffalo with a sword. See this image I used for reference below:



As you can probably imagine, finding something like that is not an easy task. So instead Beth and I decided to get the closest thing we could find:

A monkey pooping ribbons, aka: Curious George.

It was up to us to turn a fun-loving monkey into a stone-cold buffalo monster warrior. Luckily Beth majored in art and I majored in minotaurs or something.

Behold.

I like your version of a minotaur pinata. I showed my 11 year old daughter and she said it should be named "minotard".

hahaha, I like the way your 11 year old thinks.
