Carnival Game Idea: Baseball Throw
Supplies Needed for Carnival Booth – Baseball Throw:
Rubber Baseballs (standard baseballs are too hard)
Small table(s) or round, wooden bar stool(s)
One Pound Aluminum Milk Bottles
A backstop or way to prevent overthrown baseballs from rolling away from the game
Sidewalk Chalk or hula hoops to make lines or starting areas for different age children to play the game
Carnival Prizes – top prizes and consolation
How to Play:
Before the carnival, test the baseball throw for difficulty and place “stand behind” lines or hula hoops for different age children using sidewalk chalk, tape or hula hoops.
Children are given three rubber baseballs to throw per game. Depending on the setup of the stand, they win prizes based upon how many Milk Bottles they knock down.
You can make the game more difficult by requiring players to knock the entire group of Milk Bottles off the stand or just require that all Milk Bottles be knocked over to win.
Like all other school and church kids’ carnival games, everyone at least wins a consolation prize. Older children especially love this game of skill. Choose some prizes that will keep them coming back to try to win!
Note: This is a traditional carnival game BEST PLAYED OUTDOORS!! The easiest way to set up the game is to use your school or church baseball backstop with small stools or tables for the Milk Bottles. Keep in mind that you want to group carnival games in the same proximity. Families may not walk far to play just one game!
