To make these, they’ll need eight to 10 carnations, one cherry and a plastic waffle cone for each guest. Have them place pre-cut white carnations inside of the plastic cone, add approximately 1/2 cup of water inside, then place a cherry on the top. Assign some kids to assemble the cones and others to deliver them to guests as they exit the party.

Put a fresh spin on a classic game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey with Add the Cherry To the Ice Cream Cone. To make this, you’ll need a roll of craft paper, several shades of acrylic paint, paint pens and assorted colors of construction paper. Trace the shape of an ice cream cone directly onto the craft paper, outline the edges with paint pens and fill in the tracing with acrylic paint. For an extra layer of decoration, trace and paint sprinkles onto the paper as well. Next, make cherries by cutting red construction paper into 6-inch wide circles, and then add double-sided tape to the back. Tape the craft paper to the wall, add a blindfold to the first willing participant and let them have at it!
