How to Make a Poke-a-Present Game
Make a fun holiday game where everyone wins!
This holiday game is perfect for a kids’ party but could be adapted for grownups too. Cups filled with small prizes allow each guest to poke the present and win.
- foam core
- mini plastic cups
- tissue paper
- small prizes
- glue stick
- hot glue gun and sticks
- adhesive letters
- decorative tape (optional)
Cut circles of tissue paper one inch in diameter larger than the top of the cups. Fill each cup with a small prize. For kids consider things like candies or party favors. For adults use more adult appropriate candies such as truffles, lottery scratch-off games or cash. Add a ring of glue using a glue stick to the top rim of each cup. Carefully turn the cup over on a tissue paper circle and press the edges of the paper firmly around the top of the cup.
Use a hot-glue gun to attach the cups to the foam core in a square or rectangle, depending on the number of cups you wish to use. For a decorative touch, make one column and one row of the cups in a coordinating color to represent ribbons.
Add the game title to the top of the present using adhesive letters. Decorate the package with a coordinating bow. Decorate the game board as desired with decorative tape.
