When you think of piñata filler you probably think of the traditional filler candy. Kids are always happy with candy. You will want to choose candy that is small enough to fit into the hole on the piñata. Individually wrapped candy like sweet tarts, smarties, bubble gum, mints and taffy are great choices. Most piñatas hold about 2 to 3 pounds of candy, depending on the size and style of the piñata.
Small toys can also be used as piñata filler with or without candy. When choosing small toys keep the age of the children that will be at the party in mind, you don’t want to fill your piñata with small toys that may cause chocking. Any small party favors work well, tops, squirt guns, mazes, yo-yos and whistles.
