Easy "Pin the Tail" Game

When I was getting ready for our The Little Mermaid party, I wanted to include a fun "Pin the tail" type of game. It was always a game I enjoyed as a child, and my little girl loves it too. I was willing to purchase a game, but I couldn't find anything that matched our theme. I finally found this darling Little Mermaid place mat and I knew it would make the perfect game that could then be used for something else.

You will need:
a character place mat
white printer paper
construction paper

Trace the part of your place mat that you want to use as the "tail." In this case, it really is a tail. I traced the mermaid tail onto white paper and then used the piece of white paper as a pattern to cut out the tails on green construction paper. Put a piece of tape on the back and you have you easy pin the tail game! I love that it is easy and I love that we now use it at dinner.
