Spring Party Ideas

DIY Games

Pin the petal on the flower (a variation of "pin the tail on the donkey):


  • 2 or 3 sheets of foam (brightly colored)
  • small sheet of foam in a different color (maybe lighter than other foam sheets)
  • velcro
  • bandanna or blindfold
  • marker

1.) Cut the smaller foam sheet into a circle. This is the center of the flower.
2.) Attach velcro around the foam circle.
3.) Cut the remaining sheets of foam into petal shapes.
4.) Attach the other side of the velcro to the petals.
5.) Write numbers, 1-5 or 6, on the petals and then on next to the velcro on the circle.
6.) Play by having a person blindfolded try to stick the petals on the corresponding number!
