Clothespin Drop - DIY Kids Party Game!


Use a Decorated Water Jug for Game.



Kids Love to Win Long Armed Apes!



Short Carnival Savers video/gif shows a decorated gallon water jug with a clothes pin being dropped in the top.

Supplies for Clothespin Drop Game:

bullet point Large jug with small opening (we used a clear 1 gallon water jug) 
bullet point Wrapping paper & tape or other decorations for clear water jug
bullet pont Medium Sized Colorful Clothespins (You will want 50 or more clothespins to prevent from slowing the game)
bullet point Smallish Hula Hoop (as shown) or sidewalk chalk to prevent kids from standing right over the jug
bullet point 1 medium container to hold the clothes pins for your game
bullet point Duct tape (for under the jug) or other weights for inside the jug if this is used outside on a breezy day!
bullet point Carnival prizes

Game Set Up:

Well before your party, decorate your jug, and gather all the other supplies so you are ready to set up this game booth similar to our example above.

How to Play the Clothespin Drop Game:

Each player has 4 chances to drop a clothespin into the jug.
Players win a top prize if they are able to get one of the clothespins in the decorated jug!

This game is harder than it looks so for your carnival themed birthday party with younger children, you may wish to allow players to have as many chances until they get in a clothespin so all children get a prize!:)

Additional Hints & Tips:

Note: This game is perfect for a indoor carnival party! So... even in bad weather this game is ready to keep kids entertained indoors!
