I don't want to stuff it with candy. My kids don't get much sugar and any time they eat candy/processed sugary stuff it turns them into hyeractive, disobedient and WILD kids. So, candy is usually only had outside of the home when others just give it to the kids and dont' bother to ask me first.
So what else can I stuff in the pinata? I was thinking about little snack packs of healthy snacks, stickers, little coloring packs and basically little party favors. I've never had a pinata before so I don't know how big the opening is to stuff stuff into.
What would you stuff it with, if not candy?

When my DC was younger we made our own -- that was fun!!
If you google "what to put in a pinata" that are some great ideas (I just tried) ... like home made cookies, bath items, chalk, crayons, stickers, etc.
kitty cat stickers
random party favors like cute pencils, crayons, and other stuff you may find at target.
Healthy granola bars
little cute socks
maybe really little notebooks (my kids love them)
little containers of soap for the tub?
small toy cars?
Best wishes! We have had many pinyatas and put different things in them. We did do some candy but not a lot. We did bubbles, stickers, bracelets, rings, cars and play-doh.

The toy store near me sells bags of plastic jewels to glue on your art projects of whatever. I buy them for school and use them for everything from sorting, to counting, to higher level math manipulatives, and let the kids slip one or two into their pocket to take home. I can't tell you how much my kids love these things, it's crazy.
I also second the temporary tatoo idea -- that's another big hit here!
