THE 5 PINATA GAME IDEAS YOU SIMPLY MUST INCLUDE IN YOUR NEXT BIRTHDAY PIÑATA PARTY
Ahhhhh Birthdays! You gotta love ‘em!
For most people the only thing better than their own birthday is the birthday of their child! Such excitement and so much commitment to making their birthday party the very best for both them, their friends and family members.
In these days of Instagram (teens read: “ig”, young millennials: “insta”, old millennials: “gram”), it’s not enough to have just a sweet, fun party. After all, if it isn’t on ig/insta/gram, it didn’t happen. That’s why we have a whole bunch of pinata game ideas and what could photograph better?
All of this brings us to the subject of themes.

So, let’s say we’ve decided on the theme of our party “dinosaurs” and the game that is going to keep everyone busy for the longest time… “the dino pinata”. Here are lots of pinata ideas for birthday parties par excellence!
First we need to decide on:
• The decoration (all of which can be ordered online at any of the party stores)
• The food (kids love all the dirty stuff – come to that, so do the adults), you know like, dino poop, dinosaur toe nails, dino dirt and dino eggs.
Now it’s time for some fun pinata game ideas– WHAT DO WE PUT IN THE PINATA? Follow our birthday pinata rules and you won’t go wrong.
A lot of what you put in the pinata depends on your personal preference, firstly, how often you want to take your kids to the dentist and secondly, how popular you want to be with the other parents.
We’ve divided it up into 5 sections and you can choose from each section what you’d like to use.
Read to the end though because we’ve got a bonus idea for you. 🙂
Following is a chart of the candies or candy alternatives you can choose to put in your pinata. We’ve given you 2 categories and you can follow either or do a combination of both.
Now that the sweet treats are out of the way, let’s concentrate on other goodies you can put in the pinata.
AN ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE
• Bouncy Balls – They go absolutely crazy when they fall from the pinata
• Temporary Tattoos
• Plastic animals
• Mini bubbles
• Finger puppets
• Silly putty
• Toy cars
• Mini tops
• Rubber duckies
SCHOOL SUPPLY STUFF
• Hair Ties
• Hair Bows or clips
• Beaded necklaces
We know where you can actually buy a dinosaur pinata which will be the piece de resistance of your dinosaur themed party. Not only is this pinata super cute but it also comes with instructions and everything you need to make a great treasure hunt.
So, once the pinata has been busted and the kids have gathered up all their goodies (the bouncing balls will make it really amusing), you can gather all the guests up for further fun.
All that’s left is for us to wish you luck and remind you to take lots and lots of photos to post on Instagram!
