Dart-Less Balloon Pop

Unique Carnival Game Idea: Dart-Less Balloon Pop

Supplies Needed for this DIY Carnival Game: Dartless Balloon Pop

Dart Balloons (be sure to have lots on hand!)
Bean Bags for Tossing
Clean Trash Sack for holding inflated balloons
A Handmade Wooden Frame to Hold Balloons
Wooden Strips with Tacks about every 6 inches at the back of each shelf to pop balloons
Sidewalk chalk, hula hoops or cones 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, have adults or teenagers inflate balloons oodles of balloons using a hand pump, compresser or the old fashioned way. (Note: please see safety warnings at the bottom of the page)
Children are given 3 bean bags to throw per game.
Children "win" this carnival game by popping a balloon by throwing a bean bag that pushes a dart balloon against the tack on the strip at the back of the shelf. Be sure to have some spaces in between balloons to make this game a little bit harder!
We first saw this fun outdoor game at a local school carnival in Texas. Kids love this game - and parents were much happier that kids were not throwing darts!! There was a line of kids just waiting to play this unique game at the carnival we visited! This school actually ran out of dart balloons before the end of the carnival - so be sure to order plenty of balloons!
Safety Note: Please follow all safety suggestions from the Consumer Products Safety Commision PDF for balloons.

Be sure to blow up lots of balloons before your carnival so that your game is not slowed down because too many balloons have popped!! Store blown up balloons in a large garbage bag!
