What is a prize punch game?
Kids (and adults) can punch tissue paper-covered cups to reveal the prize inside. Each of the designs listed below has full tutorials linked where you can get all the tips for making your DIY game.
Basic Steps For Making Your Board
- Place prizes in cups.
- Use rubber bands to cover the cups with tissue paper.
- Hot glue tissue paper-covered cups onto a foam core board.
- Add designs such as a turkey, Frankenstein, or a ghost.
#1 Classic Mixed Colors
No matter what time of year it is, you can change the tissue paper in a random pattern to match the holiday. You can see our full original prize punch board tutorial on our sister site.
#2 Easy Thanksgiving Game
Instead of random Christmas colors, use warm tissue paper to cover your cups. Create an easy paper or cardboard turkey for this fun & easy feast party game.
#3 Halloween Punch Board
Create a fun Frankenstein game, ghost or pumpkin punch board for spooky punching! In this design, all 20 cups are usable since the eyes were made with tissue paper and other details drawn on.
#4 Christmas Tree Board
This layout is a different board than the other designs. Yes, we love this easy party game so much that we have made two boards. Instead of just randomly gluing cups on, glue them in a triangular shape. Add your own tree decorations for a fun holiday game!
#5 Pink Barbie or Valentine’s Day Game
You could add a logo, draw hearts or add stickers to your cups and board. The red and pink theme board was a perfect addition to those Valentine’s Day parties.
Any age will love punching a cup. We normally recommend having another activity first, before allowing children to punch to get their prizes.
