What you need:
For this variation of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, you need white poster board, brown card stock, a white opaque paint marker, poster tacks and a blindfold.

How to play: For the game pieces, create a goal post with two-inch wide strips of poster board. The uprights and crossbar are each 20 inches long, and the post is six inches tall. Attach goal post to the wall with poster tacks. For the footballs, cut five-inch-long football shapes out of brown card stock. Use a white opaque paint marker to decorate them and to write players' names on the balls. Put a bit of poster tack on the back of each football.

The rules: Players line up six feet from the goal. One at a time, each player is blindfolded, spun around three times by another person, and set loose to try to place the football in between the uprights. Play several rounds with three points awarded for each field goal.

How to win:
The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
