Pin the Tail on the Donkey is one of the fun child party games and animal games for kids.
This is another beloved, fun classic that has been around for a long time!
How many times have you played with your friends?
Who doesn't remember playing this as a child?
Remember laughing when your blindfold was taken off and you saw you had pinned it on the head or the face or not even on the donkey at all!
Many a wall has been pinned throughout the years!
And, that's okay! That's what the fun is all about.
Begin with an adult hanging the playing board on the wall. Place it at eye level for the kids.
Each child is given a tail and the fun begins.
The adult blindfolds the first player and spins her around 3 times then sets her on her way to the playing board.
Once the player gets there she sticks her tail on the board.
Play continues with each player spun around then sent in the donkey's direction to place its tail on the board.
Once all players have gone, the winner is the player who's tail is closest to where the tail should be!
You can split the kids into two teams and play this way, too.
One child from each team will alternate going to try to pin it on.
Once all the kids have had a chance to play, the winning team will be the team with the tail closest to where it should go!
