Every year my family continues the tradition of having a birthday celebration for my kids. I remember as a kid for at least 10 of my birthday’s I had a birthday party with a piñata or two. They are not only fun to break but the treats and surprises my parents use to fill the piñata with were always the best!
Now that I have kids I see why they always yelled out rules as we went. It can get a little dangerous. I find myself going over some rules with the kids every time we have a piñata. As they grow older they get even more anxious to see the treats fall out the piñata.
I’ve seen my share of accidents so I know the importance of rules and having more than one adult involved in the celebration of breaking the piñata.
This year we had a lot of kids present and I found myself being worried a little more. I told my parents next year we are stating the rules before we break the piñatas open. Though we were safe and there ere no accidents we did have some close calls.
