Pinata Guide & How To
1.First, make sure you have everything needed to play the party game, such as a rope, a place from where to hang the pinata (such as a tree branch, a basketball hoop, two adults holding ends of a rope with a pinata hanging in middle, etc.), Fillers – these can be toys, sweets, confetti (bouncy balls are great as they bounce everywhere when the Pinata bursts!) A Pinata Buster and Blindfolds for the people doing the bashing! 2. Fill the pinata with the goodies before guests arrive at the party, so that they won't know what surprises are inside. You can normally find a white sticker on the piñata (on the top or the side). This gives the kids an element of surprise for the game ahead. 3. Before the party game begins, you may use the pinata as a centerpiece for the party. When you’re ready to begin playing, take the pinata and hang it from the designated place.4. Organize the kids (or adults) in a line, starting with the smallest one all the way to the tallest one. If the boy or girl is very young, they won't require a blindfold. Traditionally, children over 3 years old are blindfolded, then spun around a few times, provided with the pinata buster stick and let loose to play the party game by hitting the pinata. 5. For safety's sake, while a child is hitting the pinata during the game, all other children must be kept away (a minimum 2m radius is recommended) from the hitter. Furthermore, the child should have completely ceased to hit the pinata before you allow the other children to go grab the goodies spilled on floor. This safety instruction is of utmost importance and cannot be emphasized enough. 6. Allow each child to hit the pinata at least a couple of times before you move on to the next child. 7. To make the pinata party game even more fun, the pinata must be swung up and down, and guests must be encouraged to misdirect the pinata hitter (if the pinata is down, tell the hitter the pinata is up, etc).
