Pin the tail on?whatever you want

Leave the donkey alone.
For years, the classic children's game Pin the Tail on the Donkey has been a standard birthday party activity.
The party game has children line up to be blindfolded and turned around three times to see if they can successfully place a cut-out tail on the rear end of a donkey that's been taped up to the wall. However, times have changed.
While the basic idea of the game is still intact, many parents are using variations and giving cut-out paper donkeys a time out.
Variations of the Pin the Tail game can incorporate the party's theme. For example, a pirate-themed party can have Pin the Eye Patch on the Pirate. A Princess Party may have the kids attempt to place a Crown on the Princess.
However, in an effort to make the game unique, parents may want to create their own Pin the Tail game through pictures of family and friends. Imagine the mischievous laughter you'll hear when you give your child a cut-out of yourself and say "Now Pin Mommy to the Tree!"
