The piñata is a sealed container made of laminated paper, decorated with brightly coloured paper and fringe. The shape can be almost any shape. It is filled with various gifts or sweets. It is hung on a string at a reasonable height, which is pulled to keep it moving. At various parties the children then put on the eye-scratcher and beat the piñatas blindly with long sticks, so that when they are broken various sweets or toys fall out. No sweets or presents are included.
