PICK A POP!
MMMMM.....Remember playing Pick-A-Pop at the carnival? The object was to pick out a lollipop and if it had black magic marker on the bottom of the stick, you won a prize. The best part was that even if you didn't win a prize, you still got to keep the lollipop!
I remember winning a stuffed walrus at our local carnival playing this game. The anticipation of slowwwwwwwly lifting the stick out to see that black marker was the best part! I even remember seeing adults actually cheat. They'd lift the lollipop out part-way and then put it back down. Talk about sore losers!
This is the LAST carnival game I made for our Mid-Summer's Festival. I had to wait to show you it while I bought the pops. No specific instructions. I found scrap wood in the basement, red spray paint, polka-dot scrap paper, and vintage silver garland to make it. I think the kids are happier with the results than I am!
