  My sisters school visited a school outside Managua

A piñata is made of chicken-wire and paper and hanged up in a rope. It is stuffed with sweets. It is used at partys where children with covered eyes are going to hit the piñata to break it and make the sweets fall out. Someone is pulling the rope and the children take turn to hit the piñata. When the piñata breaks and the sweets fall out all the children try to grab as much sweets as possible.
