How in the world could you misplace a piñata? Seems very unlikely, given how big and colorful they usually are. And yet, that's the case in this energetic Latin mystery song. While this tune is definitely a possibility for your holiday performances, piñatas are used for various occasions, so use this piece any time it seems appropriate.
The tune is all unison, which makes it accessible for a variety of class levels. The accompaniment on the recording uses slick, contemporary electronic sounds married to acoustic and electric rhythm section instruments. The result is a cool eclectic blend that will get kids moving, if not outright dancing.
Bonus artistic extension: The kit includes a template and directions for making mini piñatas from readily available materials, as well as an accompanying instructional video. (from Music K-8, Vol. 27, No. 2)
