Go Fish

Have a range of jelly or jelo on a bowl with fish candy in the middle. Arrange the bowls on the ground and your party guests sitting infront with their hands to their sides. The instructions are that on the word 'go' all have to dig into the jelo and try and fish out the fish with their teeth. The winner is the first one to do so. Messy but fun.

Place large pictures of candy around the house or venue and have children go out and hunt for a picture each. Once they find one to go back to base camp and match the number on the back of the picture to a prize on the prize table. All prizes should be labelled with the number underneath.
