My kids love a piñata but I hate the worry and expense so I found a solution that I tried at my son’s party and it was a huge success.
Put candies and little toys inside balloons and let the kids pop them to get their goodies! Everyone gets the same treats and a chance at popping and no one gets hurt. Unlike the piñata where it breaks before everyone gets a try and someone always seems to get hurt.
I put medals in ours to tie in with the Space Shuttle theme, there is plenty of room for candies and little prizes.
Stretch the opening and shove in the prizes and treats.
Blow up the balloons and you are ready!
Pass out the balloons for one big POP or divide the party into teams and do a relay race where the kids run get the balloon. Then they have to pop it gather their goodies and run back so the next child can go. Either way it is loads of fun!
Until next week….
