Paper Darts

Paper Darts is one of the fun birthday party games for kids and cool activities.

Before You Start

2 or more players
Ages: 6 and up
Need pencils and paper


Begin by drawing a large circle on paper. Divide this into 10 areas so it looks like a pie.

Number each square, in order, from 1 to 10. Select a player to keep score.

The first player begins by closing his eyes and covering them with his hand so he can't see.

As an alternative, you can use a handkerchief or bandana to cover the kids' eyes.

He takes a pencil and puts it down on the sheet of paper with the circle.

circle with the numbers 1 to 10

Whichever area his pencil lands on is the number of points he receives.

Then, the scorekeeper draws a pencil line through that number.

No other player can receive points if his pencil touches that number.

Each player then takes a turn.

No points are given if a player touches a crossed off number area or if she misses the circle.

If a player hits the center of the circle, he wins automatically. This is the "bull's eye."


If no bull's eye, the player with the most points after each player has taken a turn is the winner.

Or decide in advance to play a set number of rounds. The child who has the most points at the end of all the rounds is the winner.

For young kids, you can skip crossing out numbers where other kids have landed.

Play a few rounds, and the child with the most points will be the winner.


You can give each child a different colored pencil to make it easier to see his dot on the paper.

Once the play gets going, it's difficult to see where a child's pencil dot is on the paper.

Using colored pencils makes keeping score a little easier.
