How to Play the Fish Bowl Toss:
First, we want to say that this carnival game is a traditional and very popular carnival game! If you go to a professional carnival - this is one of the games you are sure to see! We have made this "fish friendly" and recommend only using pretend fish for the fish bowls!
Before the carnival, fill the fish bowls with water to the neck of the bowl. Next choose about 8 colorful squirt fish to add to just 8 of the 24 bowls. (see image above.) In order for fish to sink to the bottom, immerse them into the water and squeeze them to release the air and replace with water - your squirt fish should sit on the bottom for your game.
Players are given 3 balls to try their chance at getting a ball into a fish bowl with a squirt fish in the bottom. If they get their ball into an empty fish bowl or no fish bowl at all, they receive a consolation prize.
How Players Win a Prize:
No Balls into Fish Bowl with Pretend Fish = Consolation Prize
Ball into Fish Bowl with Pretend Fish = Top Prize
Like all carnival games, we recommend you set this one up and test it out. In our tests, giving players 3 chances, they had about a 1 in 12 - 15 chance of getting a ball into a fish bowl with a colorful squirt fish when standing about 3 - 5 feet from the game. Older players did not do much better than younger players - this game looks much easier than it is!!
Note: The plastic fish bowls can be pricey so we came up with a similar carnival game that uses plastic cups. Click to see our Fish Cup Carnival Game idea from your friends at Carnival Savers!
