How To Play The Traditional Pinata Game
Now that you have all of your supplies, it's time to get started playing. First, hang the pinatas from a tree branch or another sturdy surface that can hold its weight. Then have each player take turns putting on the blindfold and trying to break open the piñata using either a stick or bat provided by you.
As each player takes their turn, provide them with verbal cues such as "up," "down," "left," and "right" so they can aim in the right direction while they swing their stick at the piñata! When the piñata breaks open, everyone will scramble for candy!
New Pinata Party Games
There are plenty of variations on this classic party game that will make sure everybody has an even better time than before. If you are wanting to try something new, here are some of our favorite pinata party games.
This is a new take on the classic musical chairs game. Hang two or more of the pull string piñatas and set up some chairs in a circle near them. Then have everyone move in a circle around the chairs while music plays.
When the music stops, everyone must rush to a chair. If their chair is under one of the pinatas they can pull one of the piñata strings. Then remove one chair and play the game again. Each time one person will miss out on getting to a chair first and will be out of the game. The game will end when all of the piñatas have been opened.
Blindfolded relay race
Divide your guests into two teams and have them line up in a single-file line. Make sure the two lines are quite far apart so there are no injuries! This is a great option for older kids, teens and adults
Give the first person in each team a blindfold and stick, then have them run to the piñata. Their team mates will tell them when they are in front of the pinata and they are now allowed to take a swing with their stick trying to break it open. The rest of the team will be shouting out instructions and directions to the blindfolded person.
After their attempt to break open the piñata, they will then remove their blindfold and run back to hand off the blindfold and stick to the next person in line. The first team to break open their pinata will win.
For this game, hang several mini piñatas or one larger pinata from trees or posts in your backyard or park area. Players can then stand back and throw balls at them in an attempt to break them open.
Pin The Tail On The Donkey Pinata
This game is like the classic “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” game but with a pinata twist! Hang up a large donkey pinata and let each player take turns trying to stick their tail as close as possible to where it should be.
This will determine the order that the players line up in to hit the pinata. Whoever got the closest to the correct position will be allowed the first hit with the bat.
For this game, fill your pinata with some small chocolate gold coins and lots of confetti. Once the Pinata has been broken open, have all the players search through the confetti pieces looking for the hidden gold coins. This is perfect for an under the sea or Pirate Party.
Split your players into two teams and hang one pinata for each team. Then one at a time ask each team a trivia question. If they get the answer correct, the first person in their team can run over to the pinata and hit it with the bat. If the team answers incorrectly they will miss a turn. The first team to open their pinata will be the winners.
No matter which game you choose, your guests are sure to have lots of fun playing pinata party games at your next event! With these different variations, you can be sure that everyone will have a blast and create lasting memories. So what are you waiting for? Get ready for your next Pinata Party Game night today!
