This DIY Baseball-Themed Candy Jar Guessing Game is sponsored by Oriental Trading.
I’m so bad at candy jar guessing games. I always count the ones I can see on the bottom, count the ones I can see up top, and then multiply them because I’m pretty sure that’s how volume works. And then, sometimes, I just decide to double that number because despite tutoring math for years, I always feel like candy in a jar is deceiving and your guess should be higher. So I always go over.
What’s funny, though, is I actually made a candy jar guessing game and posted it on Snapchat. Everyone who snapped me a guess was wrong. Very wrong. Like they only guessed half of what was actually in there.
I guess that’s part of the fun of it. The other fun of it is putting it together. This one is baseball themed, which is perfect for your baseball birthday party.
DIY Baseball-Themed Candy Jar Guessing Game
What You’ll Need:
- Jar with lid
- Baseball Sweet Creams
- Realistic Baseball Stress Balls
- Red Cardstock
- White Cardstock
- Doubled-Sided Tape
- Black Marker
- Baseball Guess Number Printable (see the end of the post)
What You’ll Do:
Fill the jar with the Baseball Sweet Creams. As your filling, be sure to count how many you’re putting in and keep that number somewhere. You’re the only one who will know the answer.
Cut the slit of one of the stress balls, about halfway up the sides. Cut a smaller slit on each side to create a plus sign. Squish as much of the inside of the ball as you can.
Put the stress ball on the ball of the jar’s lid.
Cut identical-sized circles from the white and red pieces of card stock. From the red, cut the laces of the red circle. Glue the red laces onto the white circle.
Then, on the white circle, write the words, “guess how many”. Tape that to the front of the jar with the double-sided tape.
Print out the printable below. There are eight slips per sheet, so make sure to print one sheet per guess. Cut them out. You’ll want to set them out by the jar.
What I also did was purchase baseball lollipops and tied a piece of curling ribbon around it. Your guests can take one after they leave a guess. The winner will win the jar filled with candy, but everyone who guesses will get a sweet treat.
I found all the candy items at Oriental Trading. Check out the brand’s candy page to see what you can pick up for your next party.
Now, about that printable.
To use it, right-click the image above and save it to your desktop. Then, print it when you’re ready. You can save ink by printing on grayscale and fast draft, but I like how it looks in color.
