What do you get if you break a pinata and What is a pinata made of?

If you break a pinata you get candy and toys.

A pinata is a decorated container of clay or Papier-mâché full of such objects.

As it hangs from the ceiling, blindfolded children try to break it with long sticks. If they break it, the candies and toys spill out, and everybody grabs what they can.

This traditional Mexican game is a favorite at Mexican American birthday parties and other fiestas, or celebrations.
