Supplies for Float Your Boat:

bullet point 12 Foam Floating Boats
bullet pont Mini Pool (we used 2 large stacked plant saucers found at a garden center)
bullet point Sharpie to mark numbers on the bottom of each boat
bullet point Blue Food Coloring (optional)
bullet point Carnival Prizes

Game Set Up:

Before your carnival party, put your boats together (have the kids help you - this is a fun craft). Also, using a permanent marker number the bottom of the boats with numbers 1 - 6. (you will have two sets of each number for 12 boats)

How to Play the Float Your Boat Carnival Game:

The goal of this game is to choose 2 boats and match the numbers on the bottom of each boat to win a prize.

Party players are given 3 chances to pick two different boats each time to choose boats with matching numbers on the bottom. If the numbers on 2 boats match, they win a prize!

Additional Hints & Tips:

This game is a fun alternative to the duck pond carnival game. The duck pond carnival game is especially loved by toddlers but the float your boat carnival game is seen as a game older kids can play too!

We show this as a mini game, but feel free to use 24 boats in a larger pool of water for the matching -- it makes the game more challenging and the kids will love it!

Warning: Because this game involves water, be sure to have an adult present with this game at all times once you add water to the pool! For more detailed information, click here to see the Consumer Products Safety Commission regarding young children and water safety.
