Beat Up a Bird for Halloween & Take a Candy Shower

Updated on October 11, 2013

What Do You Mean: beat up a bird!!!

I'm not really much for beating on birds, but that's what pinatas are all about.

And what with their gorgeous colors and bellies full of wrapped candy - why not take the scary out of the holiday and have some happy fun - with a bit of pounding the daylights out of a paper mache animal, to make the celebration complete!

Look at that beautiful big bird. It's a cheery alternative to the frightening world outside. Think about the neighbor kids who arrive at your door scared out of their wits.

What a fun delight for them to get to take the scare out on a helpless happy bird that happens to be hanging around above their heads.

To give those helpless kids a clue, I like the idea of hanging a string of Parrot Pinatas from the porch ceiling or over the porch railing. That way everyone's going to want to hightail it over to my place for the radical fun at my doorstep.

It's a huge 20 inches long and holds more than two pounds of goodies. Either put your own healthy good candies or popcorn balls inside --- wrap them of course, so the treats stay clean when they land on the floor. That way you can even rescue them from the dog's mouth.

OK, tuck a little bit of scary back inside the bird - pack it full of gruesome eyeballs and that'll make the goblins do a double take. Gooey chewy ugly eyeballs!

If you're gonna beat up birds then you might as well chew on eyeballs. It's not my sweet treat of choice, but then I'm not a kid either. So, I say go all the way and surprise the little sweeties who tear into the pinatas with a dose of their spooky innards.

      @richardrose: They seem to really enjoy getting the willies about getting the goodies without getting plunked.

      You know Pinatas seem to have made a comeback, what with Dora the Explorer making mention of them. Important that folks know to keep kids safe during the "batting" part - I've heard of a few mishaps. Kids certainly love the idea of candy being released from above (and it's a cool surprise for them to not know beforehand what kind of candy it'll be). Fabulous idea for Halloween.

      @sousababy: You point out such necessary information. Breaking open a pinata does require adult supervision and care.

      Ahhh the last time I beat up a pinata was when I was around 7. It would be pretty cool to do that one more time.

      @smine27: It may be even funnier to watch some little kids have a fling at one of them, establishing a safe boundary for the others to watch from, of course.
