History of Pinatas

The History of Pinatas is one of those mysteries of time...no one is absolutly sure about where the tradition of a pinata began.



No one really knows where the party game originated, although there are several theories. Which ever theory you like and want to believe is fine with us. It's fun to wonder about a fun games origins. But what we do know about it...is how much fun they are. People all over the world enjoy swinging blindly at it with a bat or stick (or using the pull string models which are safer!) and breaking it open to share all the goodies within with everyone around. Kids love them, Adults love them...they are the perfect party game!

If you have never used a pinata before ask your friends if they have had the opportunity to play with one. It's lots of fun and you can fill it with all kinds of goodies. It can be trinkets, candies, toys, just about anything you like!


Kids always seem to enjoy breaking it open and scrambling to gather as many of the goodies as they can

Do you need something to fill your pinata with? Look at the filler we found... Candy Filler...

Find out what the pull strings are all about. Usually in this party game children are swinging a stick around, and it is possible someone could get hurt. It would be an accident, but it is still not fun. With pull strings, each child gets to pull one of the many strings hanging down. Only one string will make all the goodies fall out...so until some child chooses "That" string...everyone will get a turn! And no injuries...safe is always best!

How about some more fun party game ideas? We've got plenty of them...after all, every party needs lots of good, fun kids games! Pinatas aren't the only way to have lots of fun... Here are more Party Game Ideas
