Candy Egg Toss

Summary: Candy Egg Toss is a game of skill where you have to toss the egg into hula hoops.

Ages: From 4 to 16

Recommended Number of Players:
Between 3 and 10

Equipment:
Either 3 or 6 hula hoops
5 candy eggs

Set Up:
Put three hula hoops on the ground in a triangle pattern. If you have six hoops, you can place them in a pyramid pattern.

How to Play:
Tell the players the point value for each hoop. The one farthest away is worth the most points. Give each participant five candy eggs to throw from behind a designated line. Each time a player throws a piece of candy which lands in a hoop, he or she gets that point value. If players are old enough to keep a running total of their points, the game can go for several rounds. Younger players can be allowed to stand closer to the hoops to make their tosses.

Winner:
The player with the most points wins.

Best Advice

Many people come to this site looking for a couple specific games. When they find them, great, the job is done. But there is one thing I want ALL my guests to know regardless of how many or how few pages they read. Therefore, I decided to put the information on Candy Egg Toss and every other game instruction page. So, when you see this box again, and you have already familiarized yourself with the information, skip it and move on to finding more games (other than Candy Egg Toss) for your event.

But for those reading this for the first time, here is the best advice I can pass on from my many years of experience planning and executing large and small events. Read on…

“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.” These are great words from A.A. Milne, the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh. I couldn’t agree more. And a solid foundation of organizing and planning is needed for most events. But I am here to tell you even with the BEST organization, no event is going to proceed EXACTLY as planned. You may even have a Plan B, C or D as a back-up. That’s fabulous! But trust me on this one; something will happen that you had no way of anticipating. So what now? Here is the trick. Pay close attention to this because it is the single most important piece of wisdom I can share with my readers.

Are you ready?

Learn to mentally let go of your perfect plans
the minute the party, event, game
or special occasion starts.


That’s it. I could write an entire page on how to “be in the moment” and “have fun at your own party.” But neither of those will happen if you don’t have the mindset that it’s alright to have things turn out differently than you imagined. The good news is that usually what you planned in your head that didn’t come through was never even missed by most.

So if you are going along, playing Candy Egg Toss, or any other group activity, and it leads you down a road you didn’t foresee… Enjoy the ride.
