What you will need:

  • A football or any round shaped piñata (available at Amazon.)
  • Tissue paper
  • Glue
  • Confetti (or torn up tissue paper)
  • Sweets and/or toys. We filled ours with mini packs of nerds, whoopee cushions, tattoos and scratch and sniff stickers.


What to do:

  • If it is a football piñata or has any strong markings then rip off the markings (so they don’t show through).



  • Fill with prizes and confetti and cellotape up the hole.
  • Stick the sheets of tissue paper together to create one large sheet
  • Place the piñata in the middle of the tissue, wrap the tissue around and cut a hole for the hanging loop then glue the seam.



  • Gather the sides and tie with ribbon or twine at both ends to create the sweetie

  • Hang the piñata up and let the children whack it with a soft bat or piñata stick. Make sure children who are not taking their go stand well back!



  • When it is broken up then shake the remaining treats and confetti over the children and let them gather them up.




  • Top Tip: give the children their party bag before you start so they have somewhere to put their goodies. Also keep a few things back if you have extra in case someone isn’t fast enough and misses out!
