Candy Number Carnival Party Game

by Anonymous

You fill a pretty full jar with the birthday girl/boys' favorite candy. Count how many pieces are in there. Then leave a clipboard next to it and tell the guests to write down their name and their guess on how many candies there are (could be gum-balls, gummy worms, jelly beans... but nothing like Reeses or Twix). Then, at the end of the party, find the person closest to the actual number, and give the happy contestant a prize (possibly the whole jar of candy!) :)

Fish For a Prize Carnival Party Game

by Ginger
(Potsdam)

Cover a table with a blanket (preferably a blue one to resemble water). Have someone hide under the table with different prizes. Then take a fishing pole and let the child hook a worm on it (gummy worms work perfect) the child must fish over the table while the adult switches the gummy worm for a prize.

If you don't have a table, stack boxes up around you and cover with an old sheet then cut a small hole in the middle big enough for the prize to go back through. Remember to decorate the old sheet like water.

This is a great game for any age because every kid gets a prize!!

Penguin Escape Party Game

by John C.
(Palm Bay, FL, USA)

The game is similar to musical chairs. The Idea is to have only one child left at the end standing on an iceberg.

You will need one iceberg for each child. I have thin 1 foot square pieces or particleboard. You can use cardboard or a plain piece of notebook paper.

Place the icebergs randomly about the yard (or room if indoors). Keep the icebergs separated as much as possible for the most fun.

I tell the kids a story about the zoo keepers coming to catch penguins for the zoo. The kids are the penguins and must waddle about like penguins. No running is allowed.

I have each child stand on an iceberg to make sure they are all safe to start. I use a whistle to signal the start and end of the safe time. When I blow the whistle the first time they must leave the iceberg and waddle around the water. While they are meandering about I randomly remove one iceberg. When they hear the whistle next they must return to an iceberg to escape because the zoo keepers are coming. One penguin won’t have an iceberg to return to and is “captured” by the zoo keepers. Continue until only one penguin is on the last iceberg.

The final escaped penguin is the winner of the game.
