What is the Pinata? Pinata is a container often made of papier-mâché, pottery, or cloth; it is decorated, and filled with small toys or candy, or both, and then broken as part of a ceremony or celebration. Piñatas are commonly associated with Mexico. The idea of breaking a container filled with treats came to Europe in the 14th century, where the name, from the Italian pignatta, was introduced. The Spanish brought the European tradition to Mexico, and there have been a big tradition.
To play the pinata game, hang the pinata in a designated place and have the guests stand in a single file line three meters away.
Traditionally, to play the pinata game you blindfold the first child in line, gently spin them around three times, and give them a wooden stick so they can hit the pinata.
If the children are preschoolers, the option of blindfolding can be dropped and you can just spin each child around and give them the opportunity to hit the pinata.
As each guest tries to hit the pinata, it is extremely important to make sure everyone is standing at least five metres away from the guest with the stick.
In addition, when the pinata is broken, make sure the guest has completely stopped swinging the wooden stick before letting everyone gather the toys and candy.
