Tips to remember Birthday party games:
– When selecting a game, be sure to consult your kid. If they find it fun and approve it then take things to the nest level. If your kid will not like the game, it is certain that he will not enjoy it much.
– Do not forget to be calm and flexible. If you feel that during the party some game is not going on all that well. Then the best thing to do is quit that game and move on to the nest one.
– Being prepared before hand and doing your homework is utterly important. Before the party starts be sure to understand how the game is actually played.
– And lastly, remember that all parties are fun and giving out gifts or party favors is a good idea. Particularly if your guests are below 5 years.
Get a large piece of Styrofoam board for every four guests. Paint each board a different color, solid red or blue, for example. Now, use a bread knife to cut the boards into strange shaped pieces. For 4-5 year olds, three pieces is enough. 6-8 year olds can handle four or five, and from there on up, six or seven pieces should work.
Now, scatter the pieces from all the boards around the backyard. Designate each team an area to assemble their puzzle. Three members will work on assembly while one person can run out and get the other pieces. The first team to find and assemble their own puzzle wins.
Set up a circle of numbers on the ground and have everyone stand on a number. Begin playing festive music and have everyone walk from number to number. Draw a number from a hat and then stop the music. Whoever is standing on that number when the music stops is the winner! I have played this game at many school carnivals where the prize is a cake. But, you can give away something different.
The Birthday Statue Game:
In this game while the music plays all the player's move around. As soon as the music stops all the players need to stop and become a statue. Whoever moves is out of the game. Keep playing the music as long as you want and then give all the participants a nice gift.
Bean Bag Toss Game:
This is yet another fun game. All you need to do is make an easy bean bag using double layer of poster board glued together and a large box. Then use a large box as a base, and attach the poster board to one side of it. Before attaching the poster board, paint a design on it, make one or more hole. The kids will have lots of fun throwing those bean bags. If you want you can even give bean bags as party favors.
How Far Can You Fly Your Airplane Game:
Make a paper airplane for each child. Be sure and weigh down the nose (use a paper clip.) So that the plane will fly straight. Put each child's name on a plane. Have the children line up across a wall. Tell them to throw their planes when you count to three. The child that tosses their plane the farthest wins the game.
Happy Birthday Party Games Planning!
