Coolest Kid Birthday Parties

Face Throwing Sponge Carnival Game

by Mo
(Maine)

Find a piece of cardboard and cut a hole big enough so that someone can stand behind and put their face in it (you can even make a few different face holes by height - so that people of different heights can put their face in the hole).

Give the contestant a big wet sponge and they have three chances to hit the person's face. The contestants should stand at least a few feet away when they throw.

Golf Ball Holes Carnival Party Game

by Jake
(New York City)

You throw golf balls into the holes, the bigger the hole, the less points you get, but the smaller the hole, the more points you get.

You can also take a sort of small stage, make holes in the floor of the stage, and then the contestants need to take a golf club, and hit a golf ball so that it gets inside of the hole... (same thing as before - the smaller the hole the more points... the bigger the hole, the less points).

Mystery Box Carnival Party Game

by Mary
(Virginia)

Have a cardboard box lined inside with tinfoil. Create a hole big enough to fit your hand in. Put in something gross or funny and make the guest feel it and guess what it is.

It was a success at my party and we still talk about it today.

Frog Throwing Carnival Party Game

by Charity
(Iowa)

Throw a beanbag (frog) on a lily pad, each lily pad has a certain amount of designated points, the higher the points, the bigger the prize.

Use blue poster board - I taped two together, and paint about 10 lily pads on it. Designate 1-3 points per lily pad. I made six 'frogs' using 3 pieces of felt, googly eyes, pinto beans and lime green thread. Laminate your poster board to withstand rougher kids.

Pyramid Cup Stack Carnival Game

The contestants are suppose to make a pyramid (stacking plastic or paper cups on top of eachother).

You can have a race between a few people, give them a small amount of time (from a minute to two minutes) and whoever can make the highest pyramid stack out of cups when the time is over, is the winner. The contestants are not allowed to drop the cups while playing.

It takes a lot of attentiveness for this game, but its really fun. Practice makes perfect, so you can practice this often.

Pie Eating Contest Carnival Game

by Sara
(Nebraska)

First you fill tin pie pans with whipped cream instead of pie (its cheaper and kids like to get dirty). Then have everyone or just the kids that want to do it, get in a circle around a table and when an adult says 'Go' you eat/lick the pan clean. Whoever wins can get a number of raffle tickets (more than one) and everyone else can get one raffle ticket.

Penny Board Carnival Booth Party Game

by Penelope

Items needed:
Board or Paper
A lot of Pennies
A Marker
Tape
And Tickets or Prizes

To make and play penny board you first take a board. This could be a piece of a card board box or the back of your monopoly game... it could even be a piece of paper. Then you take your pennies and align them in rows. Tape 1 edge of all the pennies to your board so that you can flap them up. Once they are all taped down and are able to flap up, flap them open! With the marker, write down numbers under the flapped pennies. once you put all the pennies back down, you should not be able to see the numbers.

If your'e using tickets, the number of which the board says is how many tickets they get. If you are using prizes make another sheet that interprets what each number is in prize form...
And there you go, a person picks a random penny, you open the flap, and they receive their ticket/s or prize.
