Now that you’ve ticked all the items on your birthday party checklist, it’s time to plan for some games that will make your kid’s party more entertaining. Here are some classic games that are sure to
Game #1 – Musical Chairs
This game is played with at least 6 players and some chairs. The chairs must be lesser than the players and positioned in two rows back to back. When the music is played the kids will walk around the chair, when it stops they will race to sit in the chairs, whoever is left without a chair is out. A chair will take out as every time a player is eliminated. The last kid to remain is the winner.
Game #2 – Pass the Parcel
Pass the Parcel is similar to musical chairs, but instead of chairs and kids walking around. A parcel will be passed around while the music plays and whoever is holding the parcel when the music stops will get to unwrap it and get the treat. In wrapping, the parcel makes sure you do it in a way that kids can easily peel off a layer without tearing the next.
Game #3 – Simon Says
An adult will play as “Simon” and every command beginning with “Simon says…” will be done by the kids otherwise, they won’t perform it. The last player left will be the winner of the game.
Game #4 – Statues
There is no limit to the number of participants to this game. Just ask the kids to spread out in the room and dance to the beat of the music. Once the music stops the kids will freeze to their last position and whoever moves will be eliminated. Repeat the process until only one person is left.
Game #5 – Potato Sack Relay
This is an outdoor game played by teams. You can divide the group into two or three teams; set-up some markers at a short distance away for kids to hop around during the game. Every member of each team will get into the potato sack one at a time and hop around the markers then go back to their team. The fastest team to finish wins.
Bored party guests are the worst thing that can happen to your child’s birthday party. With these games, guests will surely have loads of fun, without you spending tons of money.
