Bucket Toss For ages 6 and up.

Any number of items can be used for this party game. You can even find items that go along with the birthday theme. For tossing, use something other than a bouncy ball (that will just make the game too difficult for younger children.) A small sock, partially filled with dry beans and tied with a rubber band can be used for the bean bag. Some suggestions for the bucket might be: Straw baskets, small buckets, bowls, pans. Buckets can become smaller and the prize more valuable farther away that they are.

Set up 5 buckets in a straight line, one behind the other. Put different candies or other small treats in each of the buckets. Start the line about two feet in front of the first bucket and have a player toss a beanbag into the first bucket. If he/she misses they go to the end of the line. If they make the bucket, they select a prize from the bucket and try for the next one and so on.
