  • Step 1. Fill the shopping bag lightly with crumpled newspaper.
  • Step 2. Add the wrapped candy along with the newspaper.
  • Step 3. Close the bag and tape.
  • Step 4. Cut tissue paper into 3-inch strips. Fringe the strips by cutting along the edge, being careful not to cut all the way through.
  • Step 5. Glue the strips around the bag. Start at the bottom or at one side, overlapping the tissue paper.
  • Step 6. Decorate the piñata to look like a Christmas ornament, Santa Claus, donkey or snowman.
  • Step 7. Hang the piñata.
  • Step 8. Blindfold one person at a time, aim him or her in the direction of the piñata.
  • Make sure that everyone is clear of the stick. Make sure that everyone stands clear so that they don't get hit. Make sure everyone shares the candy when the piñata is broken.

    Wait till you see the look of amazement on your child's face when the pinata is broken and all the goodies spill out all over the place! You are going to hear cheers and screams of joy when every one starts to gather thier goodies. Kids party games are so much fun on Christmas!
