Throwing Stars Competition

Throwing Stars Competition

What You'll Need:

  • Three large plastic serving bowls
  • Uncooked rice
  • Foam ninja stars; or simply cut star shapes from heavy cardboard and paint them silver.
  • Masking tape

  1. Fill each bowl less than halfway with dry rice.
  2. Choose the area where the game will be played and mark the floor with a strip of masking tape to show the children where to stand.
  3. Set the three bowls of rice five, six, and seven feet away, or whatever distance you think will work best for the ages of your guests.

At the Party:
  1. Have the guests form a line with the birthday child first.
  2. Let each child toss five stars towards the rice bowls.
  3. Award one point for landing in the closest bowl, two points for the middle bowl, and three points for the farthest bowl.
  4. The guest who scores the most points is the winner.
  5. If you wish, have a dragon sticker ready to put on each player and a martial arts party favor as the prize for the winner.
