The piñata has been around for centuries and it's a great party activity for kids! If you were a kid, you have probably heard, seen or played this activity before!
It comes in different shapes and sizes and is often sold online or at a local party store! It is so popular among kids at birthday parties and big events because the way it is played triggers a lot of fun and excitement.
To play this game there are a few things that you need to prepare in advance besides, such as the Piñata, a blindfold, a stick or bat, a strong rope to hang the Piñata, sweets, toys, and prizes to fill the Piñata inside.
Line up kids from youngest to oldest so that everyone can take a turn hitting the piñata before the older, stronger kids open it. Before hitting the piñata with a bat, the audience must first count to 10. Depending on the rules set by the game master, a child can try to hit the pinata up to 3 times. The kid who hits and breaks the piñata first is the winner! But of course each child can pick up all the treats that fall on the floor. It's a win-win situation, and no one really comes home empty-handed with this game, which is why it's a favorite!
There are still other activities you can include in your Mexican themed party, such as Cactus Ring Toss and Mexican Hat Dance.
