Scissors: A pair of scissors will be necessary for cutting out the horns from the printed template.
Blindfold: To keep the game fair and exciting, you’ll need a blindfold to cover each player’s eyes during their turn.
Adhesive: Choose your preferred adhesive, such as tape or sticky tack, to attach the horns to the unicorn during gameplay.
Marker or pen: Lastly, you’ll need a marker or pen to write each player’s name on their designated horn, making it easy to identify the winner at the end of the game.

Print the free unicorn template: Download and print our free pin the horn on the unicorn game board, which includes both the unicorn image and the individual horns.
As mentioned earlier, consider using a heavier paper or cardstock for added durability.
Cut out the individual horns: Carefully use scissors to cut out the unicorn along the outline, as well as each of the individual horns.
Be sure to keep the edges smooth for a polished look.
Hang the unicorn on the wall or another flat surface: Choose a suitable spot at your party venue, such as a wall or a door, and hang the unicorn at an appropriate height for the players.
Make sure the surface is flat and the area is clear of any obstacles that could cause players to trip or fall.
How to Play Pin the Horn on the Unicorn
“Pin the Horn on the Unicorn” is an engaging and entertaining game that’s easy to learn, making it perfect for party guests of all ages.
Blindfold and hand a horn to the player: When it’s a player’s turn, blindfold them securely to ensure they can’t see the unicorn.
Then, hand them their horn, which should already have adhesive on the back.
Spin the player around: To add an element of challenge, gently spin the blindfolded player around a few times, making sure they’re slightly disoriented before starting their attempt.
Guide the player to pin the horn: With the player disoriented, encourage them to walk toward the unicorn and try to pin their horn as close as possible to the correct spot (where the horn should be on the unicorn’s head).
Players can use their sense of touch to feel the outline of the unicorn but should avoid feeling for the correct spot.
Determine the winner: Once all players have had a turn, remove the blindfolds and compare the placement of the horns.
The player whose horn is closest to the correct spot on the unicorn is declared the winner!
This simple yet exciting game is sure to bring lots of laughter and enjoyment to your party, as guests cheer each other on and compete for the title of the best unicorn horn pinner!
