Pinatas were traditionally made with a clay pot base and many artisans make a living selling just the pot for people to decorate as they wish. However, clay pot pinatas have mostly been replaced by those made with cardboard and paper Mache, usually fashioned over balloons. One reason for this is that broken pot pieces can be dangerous to children. Have a look on our Pinata Coloring Page Free!
There’s a unique idea of breaking a container filled with treats came to Europe in the 14th century, where the name, from the Italian pignatta, was introduced. The Spanish brought the European tradition to Mexico, although there were similar traditions in Mesoamerica, such as the Aztecs’ honoring the birthday of the god Huītzilōpōchtli in mid December.
A similar tradition in Denmark is also known as slå katten af tønden (“hit the cat out of the barrel”) in which a wooden barrel is struck to release candy. In Maharashtra, India, another similar tradition called Dahi Handi is observed on the festival of Janmashtami, Lord Krishna’s birthday. During Christmas, It’s yet amusing that most Mexican traditionally filled piñatas with fruit and candies such as guavas, oranges, jicamas, pieces of sugar cane, tejocotes and wrapped candies. Some piñatas are “traps” filled with flour, confetti or water. So lets have coloring the Pinata Coloring Page Free!
