A day or so before the event, place a thin layer of children's glue on the Snowman's carrot nose and sprinkle with glitter. Shake off the excess glitter and allow to dry completely. This is the "Bull's Eye" of the game -- and allows the sticky darts to stay stuck to the goal!
How to Play the Snowman Sticky Darts Carnival Game:
Children are given three sticky darts to throw at the snowman board. For the purpose of this game - the Snowman's Carrot Nose is the "Bulls Eye" of this Dart Game.
If the child does not hit the carrot nose, after 3 darts thrown, they receive a consolation prize. If they throw the 3 darts and one (or more) sticks on the snowman's carrot nose, they are a winner and receive a top prize!
Additional Hints & Tips:
Note about Sticky Darts: These cute little darts are sticky on the end and stick to just about anything! They are reusable, but do become a little less sticky with each throw. Count on using each dart about 15 - 20 times each.
For a classroom holiday party you will have plenty of sticky darts (one package is 24 sticky darts) for the game and extras for prizes. But, if you are planning for a carnival where 25 or more children are playing this game, place a clean, plastic drop cloth if the darts should fall - to prevent them from becoming sandy or dirty - if they are dirty they lose their ability to stick and order more Sticky Darts!
Note: This Snowman Sticky Dart Game is a great addition to any classroom holiday party or winter carnival!
If you use it outside, please secure the Snowman to a chair or step ladder behind him as the slightest breeze will blow him over!
