Game Setup:

Before your holiday party or Christmas carnival, make your Christmas Tree Balloon Pop Game with the supplies listed above.

Set up this booth with a long table as your "stand behind" line for safety. This will ensure only adults can be handling the darts and no children will be behind the "line of fire"!

Also, be sure to request the assistance of adults or teenagers blow up the balloons a day or so before the carnival. We recommend a balloon pump, an air compressor or of course you can blow them up the old fashioned way.

(Note: please see safety warnings at the bottom of the page)

How to Play the Christmas Tree Balloon Pop Carnival Game:

To play this traditional carnival game, children or carnival players are given 3 darts to throw per game.

Children "win" this carnival game by popping a balloon by throwing a dart to the board!

How Players Win a Prize:
No Balloons Popped = Consolation Prize
1 - 2 Balloons Popped = Medium Prize
3 Balloons Popped = a Top Prize

Of course, if you want to keep things simple, you can pass out a lower prized top prize for anyone who pops at least one balloon. All other players receive a consolation prize! 

A Safer Alternative - Dartless Balloon Pop:

We have designed a few different Dart-less Balloon Pop games. Basically we used a plywood with clothespins (to hold the balloons) and we added tacks to the board and kids toss bean bags to pop the balloons. Please click to see this Dart-less Butterfly Balloon Burst so you can see the details of how we make this work and the design can easily be changed into a Christmas Tree Design!

Additional Hints & Tips:

SAFETY NOTE: If this is used with Darts, this game must be sectioned off so that only adults help with this game and
carnival players cannot walk behind this booth if a child accidentally overthrows a dart.

If you choose to use sharp darts in this game, please follow the consumer reports dart safety suggestions in this PDF and be aware of balloon safety too! you can download for assistance.
