Chicago Cubs posters on the walls to your party - but they
ALSO make for great prizes for any games that you have planned.
To keep the action going throughout the game, organize a raffle
at different times of the game. The first winner gets first

a little while longer and raffle off another poster. Keep
doing this until all of the posters have been claimed! See

some games involving aiming a whiffle ball. Whiffles balls
are fun because they are light and change direction very easily.
Setting up a simple target to aim at in your backyard should
do the trick, though if you have a larger space consider allowing

towards the arrangement of hats, hoping their pennies land
inside the Chicago Cubs caps. They will receive 5 points for
each penny that does. For every penny that lands in ANOTHER
cap (some other team) TWO points are taken away from their
score. Once each player has had a chance to throw their five,
determine a winner by seeing who has the most points!

their colors, but that can get pretty expensive. For an inexpensive
alternative, pick up a few rolls of cheap wrapping paper in
the Padres colors. These can be used to decorates doorways,
walls and even used to cut out giant letters spelling the
name of the team!
