TMNT Themed Party Ideas - Target Game

The last of the TMNT party games I created for my son's 4th birthday party was a good old fashioned throwing game which involved breaking the crepe paper and retrieving a prize - I think it goes without saying this was probably the most popular of the games.

You may have noticed by now I try and create our games on a budget where I can and this one is no exception.

Materials used:
- Unwanted Picture Frame backing
- Flower pots
- Spray Paint
- Rubber bands
- Crepe Paper
- TMNT party filler prizes

The picture board was left over from when we needed the glass for another project.  So I spray painted it green - to match our colour theme.

From the pound store I picked up some flowerpots - I'm sure you can get green ones already, and I did think about putting turtle masks on them and may well have done if I'd had more time, but these were made with the party only a few days away!

I had some green spray-paint from a random visit to B&Q last year when it was only £2!! (I bought it thinking I'd end up creating a Hulk themed project....)

One day these are flower pots - the next TMNT targets

Once the flower pots were dry, I screwed them in place on the board using small nut and bolts which went through the pots amazingly well! I used bolts as these are going to take a LOT of bashing from the kids and I felt glue may come off after one bash.

I bought the crepe paper to wrap around the balloons as masks - but that never happened in the end, so I used each of the 4 colours to cover the pots and the elastic bands to hold them in place.  As the flower pots have a lip the bands didn't flick off, which was my biggest concern.

Once my chief tester had tried these targets out with the bean bags I was happy that the crepe paper worked in exactly the way I had wanted it to, so we filled the pots up with mini prizes and covered them over and took them to the party.

I cut up the remaining crepe paper and took extra party bag fillers on the day, as this proved to be a very popular game and one that was surprising simple to create even though I very nearly didn't do it!

This post marks the last in my TMNT theme party posts, I do hope it's given you some ideas and if nothing else to let you know sometimes these games really are not that difficult to recreate at all.
