Unicorn Birthday Party Pinata
I made the first pinata 2 years ago and since then it is the first thing my kids ask for when we plan their birthdays. It became one of their favorite birthday traditions!
Why do you want to have a pinata?
- it not only adds to your party decorations but
- also creates another activity and
- give the kids toys to play with at the party and
- take home as party favors We always fill the pinata:
- not only with sweets but also
- with a lot of small toys
as I am not a fan of having too many sweets around …
Top Pinata making tip
Make sure the toys you add won’t break when falling on the ground.
No time to make your own pinata? No problem, luckily they are readily available online!

C’mon, people, it’s their picks for the best SNES games. If you think Secret of Mana is the best, props to you. If you think Super Metroid is better than Super Mario Kart, that’s fine. This is their pick and your comments aren’t going to change it. The sooner you all get that the better off you’ll be.And before anyone calls me a hypocrite, I did wonder why Chrono Trigger was only #5 when it was on their “”best games of all time”” list. It just didn’t make sense for it to be lower than A Link to the Past when even that isn’t on the best games of all time list.
Thanks for sharing such good article. This is really helpful.
Thanks for visiting. Glad you enjoyed the unicorn post!
