How to Play Guess How Many

This is a great guessing game you can play at any party.


  • Step 1: Fill container Fill a clear container with a known amount of candy. Add some nickels and tiny toys to the container and close the lid.
  • TIP: Instead of nickels and toys you can use any small object or trinkets.
  • Step 2: Guess Have everyone guess how many candies are in the container. Players can turn the container but cannot shake it or remove the lid.
  • Step 3: Write the number of candies Pass out the pencils and paper. Have everyone write down their name and the number of candies they think are in the jar and put it in the box.
  • TIP: You can have multiple winners by having people guess how many coins and toys are in the jar.
  • Step 4: Determine winner Collect the entries from the box and see who had the closest guess. The winner gets to keep the candy jar.
