What you need: A poster of a donkey with a missing tail, paper tails, thumbtacks and a blindfold.

How to play:
As each child takes a turn, he or she is given a paper tail with the thumbtack pinned through, is blindfolded and spun around. The child then tries to pin the tail on the donkey in the proper position.

The rules: You can substitute anything for the tail and the donkey, such as Pin the Ball on the Catcher's Mitt or Pin the Tiara on the Princess.

How to win:
The winner is the player who pins the tail closest to the target.

What else you need to know: You can find free printouts of donkeys and tails at Family Games Treasurehouse.
