The Clothes Pin Drop Game is a great game to play at a kids carnival birthday party!

The Clothes Pin Drop Game is fun for any party theme, but especially a Carnival party. There is nothing like the fun feeling you get when you are walking down the midway with the delicious smells, the bright lights, the noise and the action you will find at any carnival you ever go to.


Now you can have all that action and fun right in your own backyard! Make some games, some popcorn and some candy apples and don't forget the cotton candy. Plan a really fun kids birthday party and have a blast.

The Clothes Pin Drop consists of a jar with a wide mouth and some clothes pins. From the distance you decide each player must drop a clothes pin into the jar...or at least, try to.

This game is tougher than it looks. Practice it when you decide your distance from the jar...example, each child must stand and hold his or her arm out straight and not bend the arm at all when preparing to drop or when dropping the clothes pin.

Hand out prizes according to how many pins go into the jar. You can find some cute Toys & Novelties at The Oriental Trading Company along with party supplies and even other fun party games to play. In fact you can probably buy the Clothespin Drop game there. And they are cheap too...so take a look and find all the fun party stuff you need.
