TYPES OF PINATAS:
1. The original piñata which you whack with a (stick) “piñata buster”. Each party participant is blind folded, spun around a few times and then gets a chance to smack the piñata as hard as they can with the piñata buster, until it pops. The moment it bursts open everyone climbs in and collect as much as they can!
2. The pull string piñata which is non-violent, safe and suitable for little kids. Each party participant gets a chance to yank one of the strings as hard as they can to pop the piñata. Once again, when the toys and treats come showering down, each will collect as much as they can.
Tip: Have small little baskets with treats, sweats and toys ready for the unlucky little ones that get none. Tear prevention!
A piñata is container usually made of clay, cloth or papier-mâché. Modern day piñatas are mostly made of papier-mâché. Then decorated with lots of ribbons, tinsels and colorful fringed paper, it is then filled with tiny treasures of candy, small toys and sometimes fruits, seeds, or flour!
Many believe the piñata originated in Mexico and was first created by the Spanish but there are claims that Marco Polo actually found the first Pinatas on his travels to China. Rumor has it that the tradition then traveled to Europe in the 14th Century where after the Spanish brought the festive tradition to Mexico around the 16th Century and gave it the Mexican name “piñata”. Others claim the Aztecs had a similar tradition way before this. Full details about this and the religious connections and traditions can be found on Wikipedia.com: search for “piñata”.
