Wouldn’t it be much healthier to shape piñatas like seasonal symbols of non-sentient beings – Easter eggs, pumpkins, stars, pineapples, watermelons, fancy cakes, rockets, ice cream cones, cupcakes, sombreros, giant numerals of the child’s age, etc.? Why teach children to overcome their natural empathy? Why train children to violate their better instincts? Why not support our children’s tendency for compassion and connection?

And maybe fill piñatas with tiny bags filled with different treats such as popcorn, nuts, dried figs, dates, and trail mix, as well as little toys and trinkets such as miniature kaleidoscopes, balls, rings, whistles, and bracelets.
