PENNY PITCH GAME - SETUP & DIRECTIONS
Short Carnival Savers video/gif shows mini flower plates arranged on a table with a penny being tossed into them.
Supplies for Penny Pitch Carnival Game:
24 or more small plates for flat bowls
Make This Game:
Days before your carnival, paint your flower shaped bowls/plates to make them colorful! This is a great activity for kids too - so be sure to include them in this part of your planning.
Choose about 3 flowers and make them unique - they will be your winning flowers. We choose to make them rainbow colored petals with a white center to help them stand out!
Allow a full day to dry before your carnival.
Note: If you are tight on time and need a last minute game, simply go to your local resale shop and purchase an assortment of plates, saucers and flat bowls to use for this game! Be sure to designate which bowls/plates or the "winning" ones. You may wish to choose about 3 "winning dishes" if you have 24 different plates.
Set up your table with a tablecloth (or imitation grass) and place your bowls or plates on the table about 1 inch apart if you want a little more challenge!
Set up some type of stand behind lines and have a small bucket of pennies.
How to Play the Penny Pitch Carnival Game:
Players are given 3 pennies with a chance to land one of the pennies on the "winning" plates/bowls!
The pennies seem to bounce, so this is another carnival game that looks easier than it is!
0 Pennies stay on any plate = consolation prize
Additional Hints & Tips:
Note: If played over grass, the pennies seem to disappear in the grass, so you may wish to place a tablecloth under the table to make the pennies easier to find!
Of course, please test out this game after you have it set up to determine how close players will stand to your table.
