Fun games for children’s birthday parties
Fun games to use at your next kid’s birthday party are right here. Just pick some of these titles and give them a little spin. Make them to match your unique party theme. For example, Simon Says could become The Mummy Says at a Halloween party, or it could become The Pirate Says at a children’s pirate party. Use these classic fun party games, add a new title and make it unique for your party. Treat your party guests to a really fun, fun, fun game at this special boy or girl birthday party.
Mad Libs are a fun way to get party guests to open up. What Mad Libs do is make a story…a funny story. And everyone can help create that story and it has to be silly…that’s what makes it so much fun. You start playing Mad Libs with a main storyline. You have to leave some words and put the word that will fit there. For example, Mary blank for her bicycle…so this blank must be filled by a verb. Mary wore a billet on her head. This blank must be filled by a noun. Look… how’s the game going? Each child or guest can fill in one of the missing words and then when all the words are filled in read the story…. You can find books with Party Mad Libs in them or you can make up your own story line using the names of the birthday boy and the party guests in it.
Chinese Whispers is another very simple game that is fun to play. Put everyone in a circle and have someone start playing by telling them the sentence of the game. In Chinese Whisper, a sentence or phrase is said to the first player. That player must whisper it to the next player and so on in the round. When the phrase or sentence is said to the last player, that player must stand up and say the sentence out loud. What’s so funny about that? Well, usually by the time the message is delivered to everyone, it has changed a lot from the original sentence. Make your sentence something silly like “Wet dogs shake and shake to dry” or “Dogs only use umbrellas when it’s raining cats and dogs.” Now you can also rename your game to match your party theme. The Pirate Whispers at a pirate party and The Princess Whispers at a princess themed party…and your phrase to match the theme too.
Music party games are fun for everyone. Freeze Dance and Musical Chairs are two that always come to mind when we talk about fun musical party games for kids. In both games, you need someone to stop and play the music. To play these games, you will need either a dance floor area or chairs placed in a circle. With Freeze Dance, when the music starts, everyone starts dancing. When the music stops, everyone must freeze. If the dancer doesn’t freeze immediately, he’s out. With Muscial Chairs, you must have one less chair than you have players. Each time a player is eliminated, you remove another chair. This is how you play. Place the chairs in a circle and when the music starts playing, have all the party guests walk around the circle of chairs. When the music stops, each child must sit on a chair. The one who doesn’t have a chair to sit on is out. Let the kids who are outside get started on the party or the next activity. Now to make these fun party games unique, rename them. Royal Ball Freeze Dance or Pirates Freeze Dance will make these simple and fun party games a little more exciting for your guests.
Pass the Parcel is a fun and entertaining party game for kids’ birthday parties… and adults will have fun too. This is another music party game so get the music ready. It’s one of those fun, fun, fun games that gets passed down over the years because it’s enjoyable. This is another game that you can rename and give it a new life. To play Pass the Parcel, you need a parcel and some music that goes with the theme of your party. For a princess party play some Disney Princess songs, for a pirate party play What Do You Do With A Drunken Sailor…lol, or for a cowboy themed party use some western cowboy songs. You can also name your shipment according to your party theme. Princess Pack, Pirate’s Treasure, or Cowboy’s Saddle Bag are all parcel name options. Ok, now how to play Pass the Parcel. Pack the package a lot. And with each layer of packaging, include a prize…it could be a small prize like some temporary tattoos or stickers, or a lollipop, or whatever prize you decide. Sit everyone in a circle and play the music and Pass the packet. Stop the music and the guest who has parcels can unpack a layer of packaging. Plus they get the reward inside. When a player can unwrap the parcel and keep the prize, they must leave the round. Continue until there is only one child left and of course he will keep the prize in the middle of all these layers.
A classic and very fun children’s birthday party game is Pin the Tail on the Donkey. This fun kids game is so easy to change to a new version. Pin the princess crown, pin the pirate’s eyepatch, or X marks the spot are other fun ideas. Pin the Hat on the Cowboy or the Eye on the Muno for a Yo Gabba Gabba party are just a few ways to make this fun, entertaining party game the perfect game for any party. You all know how to play Pin the Tail on the Donkey…right? Each child gets a tail with double-sided tape. You blindfold the up player, flip it over a few times, and then point it in the direction of the Donkey. They should try to stick the tail closest to where it belongs. Whoever gets the tail closer to where it belongs gets a prize… of course you can give a prize to anyone for a game. Stickers or temporary tattoos are great prizes for this kind of game…kids love them and they’re the cheapest party game prizes you’ll find.
The Pinata game is also fun. Piñata is a traditional Mexican game. The piñata is really a breakable container for party prizes and candy. The goal of this fun party game is to break the piñata and collect all the goodies hidden inside. These piñatas come in every theme imaginable, so all you have to do is pick one that fits your theme and fill it with goodies the kids will love. Stickers, temporary tattoos, candies and small game prizes work perfectly as fillers. I like the tug of war piñatas. This is a game that has strings that kids can pull. One of these strings tears the body of the piñata so that the extras fall out. Then everyone tries to collect all the goodies they can. You can buy a pull string model or you can buy a pull string conversion kit to make this kids party game very safe. To play, you hang up your piñata and blindfold each child as they take turns pulling a string. You can place the blind fold and as with Pin the Tail on the Donkey, turn each child and point them in the direction of the hanging piñata. Tell them how many steps they need to take and send them off.
