We celebrated my grandson's 6th birthday at the park with family and friends. Of course, the hitting at the pinata was the hit of the party! Have you ever made your very own pinata?

 

What Is A Pinata?


 A piñata is a container often made of papier-mâché, pottery, or cloth; it is decorated, and filled with small toys or candy, or both, and then broken as part of a ceremony or celebration. Piñatas are commonly associated with Mexico. The idea of breaking a container filled with treats came to Europe in the 14th century, where the name, from the Italian pignatta, was introduced.

Pianata Song 


I have heard folks sing this song while the children are swinging at the pinata!

Spanish:
Dale, dale, dale.
No pierdas el tino.
Porque si lo pierdes.
Pierdes el camino.
Ya le diste una.
Ya le diste dos.
Ya le diste tres.
Y tu tiempo se acabó.

English:
Hit it, hit it, hit it.
Don’t lose your aim.
Because if you lose it.
You lose the way.
You hit it once.
You hit it twice.
You hit it three times.
And your time is up.

Chords

Por que si lo (A7)pierdes,
Pierdes el (D)camino
