All you need is a unicorn headband and lightweight rings to let kids test their aim. One kid wears a unicorn horn while
another kid tosses rings to see how many they can land. Here are a few
ways to play:
Game #1: Unicorn Rainbow Ring Toss Relay
Place two 5’ pieces of tape or string parallel to each other about 3’ to
5’ feet apart (depending on the age, coordination, and arm-span of your
party guests). Split the guests into two groups, and have them line up
behind one of the lines. Give the first child in each line a unicorn
headband, and the second a rainbow ring. On your “go” signal, the first
child moves to stand behind the other line, and the second child tries
to the ring onto the horn. (The child with the headband can move around
to catch the ring, but can’t cross the line.) Once the ring has been
caught, the unicorn hands the headband to the ring-thrower and the ring
to the next child in line, and goes to the back of the line. Scoring:
Whoever gets through the line first wins. Or count how many catches a
team can make in a certain amount of time.
Game #2: Pass the Rainbow Ring
This is a great game for cooperation. Ask the kids to make a circle. Two
children standing next to each other put on the unicorn headbands, with
one ring placed on one of their horns. The player with the ring must
pass it to the other player without using their hands—if they drop it,
they must pick it back up on their own horn before passing it to the
other player. Once the ring has passed, the first child gives their horn
to the child on the other side of the player with the ring. See how
long it takes to pass the ring all the way around the circle.
Game #3: Rainbow Ring Tag
Two players wear the unicorn headbands—they are unicorns running free.
The other players take turns trying to throw the rainbow rings on their
horns; whoever can “catch” them with a ring gets to become a unicorn.
This is best played outside or in a large open space.
