Cardboard Mini Plinko Carnival Game


For the occasion of my daughter's birthday party this month, I decided to construct a game for the party-goers.  Recalling the fun we had playing plinko at various carnivals, I bought some golf tees and practice golf balls to make a miniature version of our own.

 Materials Used:
  • Large cardboard box
  • Golf tees
  • Plastic golf balls
  • Packing tape
  • Metal skewer (to puncture the thick cardboard).
  • Clear packing tape
  • 3 Plastic cups
  • Cardboard tubes (for side bumpers)
  • Wrapping paper

Playing the Game:

Each child was given the same number of golf balls to drop (four or five).  They released each golf ball from the top of the board to roll and bounce down into the cups at the bottom.  My daughter thought it would be fun to make it a point-based game (she likes math).  In this case, each cup had a number, and we added the number of points scored by each child.  The person with the highest point total was the winner.  We let that person choose first from a prize box.

It's Playtime is where you'll find more playful ideas like this.
