Piñata AfricaPiñata are a great idea for birthdays, celebrations, reunions, picnics, anniversaries, office parties or any social gatherings. A Piñata originates from Mexico and is a hand made, decorated, paper-mache model and can be filled with sweets or gifts. Average 60cm X 60cm.
How to play: Hang your Piñata from the ceiling, tree or playground equipment. Each child or adult takes a stick (or Piñata-buster) and has a turn to ?bash? the Piñata. To add a bit of ?spice? to the game a blindfold can be used. Turn the person around 2 or 3 times and point them in the direction of the Piñata. Even more challenging, manoeuvre the other loose end of rope/string and move the Piñata around or up and down! Make sure everyone stands away from the blindfolded person with the stick! When someone breaks the Piñata, everyone makes a mad dash for the contents. For younger children, line the children up and let them take turns to whack the Piñata. No blindfolds etc. A 'non-violent' version of the Piñata is a pull-string. Approx.30 strings hang underneath the Pinata but only 1 opens a trapdoor to release all the contents.
