No Eckersley festivity would be complete without some kind of target shoot 🎯. To finish off your blanket games grab a few balloons (sturdy dollar store punch balloons work best) and put a glow stick inside. Grab a sharpie and mark them with different point values.
Use the dowels from your Kerplunk game (see previous post) to poke a hole through the knot end and push it into the grass around your blanket.
Now use rubber bands or glow bracelets to try to make the balloons shake. 🎈Make the balloon move and you earn that value of points. Make it pop, and you lose that value of points 👎🏻. The first player to 1000 points wins a fun prize or immunity from clean up duty. 👏
If you're hosting a party in your backyard you could do a bunch of balloons and make an old fashioned dart throw - earning points for every balloon popped. Just think, you get all the fun of a carnival without spending a fortune or talking to creepy carnies 🤡. It's a win-win!
