Pinatas are a hugely fun and entertaining piece of parties ~ and remain popular no matter how old the children are. I have seen 4 year olds delight in them, as well as 2 year olds. They are a truly fantastic idea.
Also, with Cinco de Mayo coming up on May 5th, this might be a great way to celebrate the day as well!
Someone recently wanted to know what to fill a pinata with for very small children?
I think soft toys would be the best answer. You could either put in soft bath toys or soft alphabet letters or numbers. You could also do small packets of little crackers or gummies. When the pinata breaks then there is no worry on these items falling out and hurting a small child.
Older children who are school-aged, of course, will love candy…the more, the better. Make sure you have a big assortment in there of chocolate to Willy Wonka favorites. You could also throw in small toys like jax and jumpy balls…lots of fun while they take their sugar high.
You can usually find a pinata at a party store. There are lots of different types and shapes. Still, a few people have asked, “How do I make my own pinata?” This is an excellent craft, especially to undertake with your school-aged child.
Here is a site that I hope will be helpful to you:
If you are looking to buy, versus make, a pinata, check out the selection at Celebrate Express.
Pinata mania! Have a great time!
