When we arrived, Caitlyn proudly announced "Today is MY party and I am three years old." We got to swim in her pool (Elizabeth was very impressed!) Matthew did not have any qualms about destroying piñatas, I was glad to see, though I guess Elizabeth was older when she was traumatized by the shocking demise of the piñata. Matthew was not sure about participating at first but once he realized we were sanctioning enthusiastically hitting something with a stick he was all over it.
The only problem is that shortly I'm thinking that David and Dianne are going to have to reinforce the piñata so that it doesn't get pulverized by the end of the first round. It's quite amazing how much better the kids have gotten at breaking these in the last five years (here's the first one - aren't the kids tiny?!)...
If Dianne ever gets tired of her day job, I'm thinking professional cake decorator would be a definite possibility... That's some cake, n'est ce pas?

You could always try a upgrading sticks gradually. Start with a dollar store pool noodle and after 2 rounds end with a stick.
That way at least everyone can hit once and see the piñata swing while hitting
