A little boy holding a stick

In San José Buenavista, Mexico, Francisco, the self-proclaimed “Piñata King,” and his family have been producing colorful piñatas for 50 years. Despite making a beautiful object meant to be broken, the process is not only a craft, but a lifestyle. In a small town where there are more piñatas than people, so much joy is made in working with papier-mâché. National Geographic’s team of filmmakers share these artisan’s wonderful stories. Watch below, and be inspired!
