Feed the Elephant

What You'll Need:

  • A Large Piece of Cardboard
  • An X-Acto Knife
  • Gray Paint
  • A Black Marker
  • A Bag of Peanuts (in the shells)

  1. Cut an elephant face from a large piece of cardboard. The face should be at least 2' across.
  2. Paint the face gray, let it dry, and then draw on the elephant's facial features using a black marker.
  3. Use an X-Acto knife to cut a large circle for the mouth.

If Playing Outdoors: Attach a stake to the back of the elephant, and then plant it in the grass.

If Playing Indoors: Hang the elephant at an appropriate height, or prop it up on a chair.

At the Party:
  1. To start, the children line up in front of the elephant, throwing distance away.
  2. Adjust the distance based on the age and abilities of your guests.
  3. Hand each guest 3 to 5 peanuts.
  4. Each child takes a turn trying to toss the peanuts into the elephant's mouth.
  5. Award prizes base on the number of peanuts each child throws through the hole, or give a smaller prize to everyone.
