Kids Pinata Party
Kids pinata party - playing the pinata is one of an exciting and a fun party games for kids, no matter what the occasion.
This game is traditionally played outdoors. However, if the weather doesn't allow for outdoor games, you can play this game in a large indoor space such as a garage or an auditorium.
A community center may have an indoor space available as well. For an outdoor pinata party, you will need a tree branch or a basketball hoop from which to hang it.
If you are playing the game indoors, you will need to be able to hang it from the ceiling. If there is nothing you can use from which to hang the pinata, two grownups can hold the ends of a rope and hang it in the middle.
Here are some simple step by step instructions on how to make a pinata - fun shapes at home -
Make Your Own Pinata
Pinata - Purchase It Or Make It
If you plan to have the pinata game at your little ones party, you have 2 options -It can either be an almost free kid birthday game by making one at at home or by purchasing one for the party.Making a pinata can be a great fun project to do with your child but an important thing to consider would be the time you have on hand. You need to start making one atleast 4-5 days before the party, so that there is sufficient time for the pinta to dry and decorate.
Once you have your pinata, fill it with candy, small toys, and confetti . On the day of the party, the pinata can be used as a festive centerpiece, hinting at the fun to come!
Fun Kid Games to play - Play the Pinata Game
To play the pinata game, hang the pinata in its designated place and have the guests stand in a single file line several feet away.
Traditionally, to play the pinata game you blindfold the first child in line, gently spin them around three times, and give them the buster stick so they can hit the pinata.But since its preschoolers we are talking about, the option of blindfolding can be dropped and you can just spin each child around and given the opportunity to hit the pinata.Give each child the opportunity to hit the pinata atleast twice.
As each guest tries to hit the pinata, it is extremely important to make sure everyone is standing at least 15 feet away. In addition, when the pinata is broken, make sure the guest has completely stopped swinging the pinata buster before letting everyone gather the toys and candy.
Indoor Pinata Party For Kids - The Pull string Pinata
If you do not have the space to play the traditional version of the pinyata game, or if you would prefer that the children play non-aggressive games, playing the pinata game with a pull pinata is an excellent kid birthday game that can be played indoors.
Pull pinatas are similar to traditional pinatas in that they can be just as colorful and festive-looking, they are filled with candy, toys, and confetti, and they are also meant to be hung.
Pull pinatas are different from traditional pinatas in that they have a "secret" trap door, and they also have 20 to 30 ribbons hanging from the bottom for the guests to pull. One of these ribbons is attached to the trap door, so when it is pulled, the trap door opens and the goodies fall out.
Playing The Pullstring Pinata
To play this one for your pinata party, have the children line up in a single file line. Give each child in line the opportunity to tug on a ribbon, until someone tugs on the "right" ribbon and everyone is allowed to scramble for the gifts that have spilled out onto the floor.
Another interesting version of this game can be just what you need for a preschooler party, attach a small toy to each ribbon, and have the child take the toy from the ribbon they pulled. Party games for kids where each guest gets a toy of their own are great as there will be no tears and unhappy tiny faces, and also it is a lot easier to keep track of which ribbons have been pulled and which ones have not.
