About Piñatas

A piñata is a decorated container filled with goodies (candy, party favors, etc.) of some kind. During a party or celebration a piñata is hung a short ways off the ground, and the party guests, usually children, take turns being blindfolded and trying to hit the piñata with a stick or something similar. When someone finally hits the piñata hard enough it breaks open, spilling the goodies inside for everyone to pick up and enjoy.

Hitting a piñata with a stick is the traditional way of breaking it open and is still common today. However, you can also find piñatas that release their goodies by pulling a string: These piñatas have several strings hanging from them and party guests takes turns pulling one string at a time. When the correct string is pulled, the piñata releases its goodies.

Piñatas are typically made of lightweight material that is not too durable so they can be broken open when hit firmly with a stick. Common construction materials include paper mache and cardboard. Piñatas are often made in shapes to accent the theme of the party or celebration they'll be used at. For example, a cowboy or Western-themed party might have a piñata in the shape of a cowboy, a cowboy boot or hat, a horse or bull, etc.
