What You'll Need:

  • A large poster of a martial arts figure; or take a magazine photo to the copy shop and have it enlarged.
  • Black belts cut from construction paper
  • Double sided tape
  • A blindfold

  1. Use scissors to cut out enough black belts for every player.
  2. Tape the martial arts figure poster to a wall in the party area, keeping the height of your guests in mind.

At the Party:
  1. Choose a child to play first, and blindfold him or her.
  2. Place a piece of tape on the back of a black belt and hand it to the player.
  3. Depending on the age of the player, have him or her stand anywhere between 3' and 10' away from the poster on the wall.
  4. When ready, spin the blindfolded player a few times (at least 3, but don't make them too dizzy!), and then stop the child so she or he is facing in the direction of the martial arts poster on the wall.
  5. Let the player walk forward and try to correctly pin the belt on the poster!
  6. Repeat until every player has had a turn.
  7. Whoever places their belt closest to the target is the winner!
  8. If you wish, you can award all players a small prize, such as a sticker or piece of candy, and award a larger prize to the winner.
