Get a Pinata for a Fun Halloween for Kids!

Pinatas offer kids three of their favorite things in life: Play, Toys and Candy!

If you're looking for a fun theme for Halloween for the kids as a simple activity to keep them busy or to have your own Halloween party instead of taking the little ones out to the neighborhoods, a Halloween Pinata could be the perfect choice.

I've used pinatas for some of our own parties and fundraisers and they're always a hit - not only for the kids but, adults like pinatas too. Maybe get two - one kid friendly and one for the adults!

Here you'll find some of the best Halloween pinatas for sale at a discount in lots of colors and figures, plus pinata sticks, blind folds, toy fillers and of course, lots of candy. If you're crafty and want to make your own super fun for kids Halloween Pinanta, we show you that too.

Thanks for your visit today, have some Halloween fun and please take a moment to take our Halloween Pinata poll!

Halloween fun for kids could include this black body with green face and hands 17"x12" not too scary monster. He's posed in the classic Frankenstein monster pose and sure to delight the little ones once they get all those toys and candy inside. Note: price includes only the Frankie pinata and not all three shown.


Give them toys!

Kids love getting little favors at the party.

For the pinata add little trinkets they can play with, write with, trade or share.

You can find them at any party store.

Most of the party favors for kids are plastic toys so make sure they're age appropriate.

A nice mix of candy and toys will make all the kids thrilled to take a shot at breaking the pinata opened.

Use a blindfold on the kids for your pinata party so you don't have to worry about a scarf or bandanna coming off.


Pinata Blindfold and Stick

If you don't have anything to use as a blindfold or plastic stick to safely have the kids bust open a pinata, these could help you.

This pinata stick is made of plastic so kids won't get hurt as easily unlike using a wooden stick or bat. If you need one, this is a good choice.


Add the Treats!

Kids will look forward to all the yummy candy they'll find when they break open the pinata so be sure to add age appropriate candies. Any leftover candy can be filled in treat bags or bowls for the party table.
