5 Classic Kids Party Games

Happy kids

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.

 

Birthday Craft Ideas for Children’s Parties

When planning a children’s party, the element of fun is one of the factors that the host must consider. Of course, there are also other important things that you need to prepare beforehand such as the venue, the cake, etc. But in order to have a successful party, try to prepare some interesting things for your little guests to do. I’ve listed here a few birthday crafts that you can do on your kid’s party. See each one if it is the most age-appropriate activity for your birthday group.

Print infinity scarf

The author of “The Giant Book of Creativity for Kids,” Bobbi Conner, suggests that kids make their own homemade scarf. You can ask the guests to bring an old light-colored T-shirt. Then, cut it off, leaving only the mid-section in order to create a loop-scarf. Have the guests to dip cut-up sponges or stamps into the paint and press the items into the scarf to print a particular design. Try to let the children decide on a basic design before starting to print.

Musical instruments

Let the kids be the entertainment. You can gather soda can pop tabs, oatmeal containers, plastic milk jugs, tissue boxes and rubber bands to be used by kids to create their own instruments. You can also let them decorate their chosen container with paint or colored paper before making music out of it.

Snow globes

Here, try to give every child a glass jar but take note that this is best for kids a little older as they are more careful with the glass. Then, set out small plastic animals or character figurines. Let them glue such items to the inside of the lid using waterproof glue. Fill the jar with water and glitters. Finally, seal the edges with glue and close the jar.

All about me coasters

This is a suggestion from Rhonda Conry, president of Art from the Heart Classes. Provide each child four 4×4 inch tiles which you can buy at hardware stores with your color of choice. Then, take four personality photos of each child having funny faces. Print using photo paper before trimming to 3×3 inch square. Paste the photos to the tiles and when they’re dry, use permanent makers to decorate the borders.

Your child’s birthday party is an opportunity to use your creativity. There are a lot of possible themes, decorations and menu choices you can choose from to make it a grand event. An age-appropriate theme, a unique kid’s party entertainment along with a kid-friendly menu; will the event a memorable for your child.

You have to watch yourself though and not fall into the trap of choosing the theme for your child’s party based on the month or season (unless it’s really a theme that your child is truly interested in). The theme should be something that your child personally enjoys after all the event is about celebrating their uniqueness.

The local craft store is a good place to get some ideas and supplies for the party’s decorations. If it suits your lifestyle better, you can opt to order the party supplies online. You can hang mobiles on the ceiling or in any prominent location. All you have to do is print out images which symbolize the theme, you can stick them back to back and insert a string in between. You can also, make your own banner, by printing the letters on colorful stationery or themed paper and attaching them to a string or rope using a cute clothespin.

When it comes to the party’s menu, you must keep it simple. Kid’s don’t eat that much. Like the theme, prepare food that your child usually eats so that you can avoid left-over. You need to also know whether some of the guests have food restrictions, to prevent the incidence of allergies occurring.

When it comes to entertainment, you can modify classic games to make it conform to the theme. You can also hire professional entertainers who will perform for the kids and facilitate games and activities.

To be safe, you can go ahead and ask your guests for their idea of a fun location for the party.

  1. Keep the food simple

When it comes to the food’s party, make sure that the kids like 75-80% of the food on the menu. If the party will have a greater number of kids on the guest list, don’t bother buying too much food, because kids won’t eat much. The best route to take is to prepare your child’s favorite dish or order a pizza.

  1. Party Theme

When it comes to the party’s decorations, do it according to the theme your child prefers. You can purchase plates, balloons, party hats and utensils relevant to the theme. For an added effect, you can custom-make the birthday cake to fit the theme.

  1. Party bags

Fill it with goodies and toys which are also theme-based. This will make the party bag more appealing to the kids.

  1. Budget

Stress-Free Birthday Party Planning

While some parents feel that planning their child’s birthday party is taxing, others would actually find it thrilling. There are some things, however, that one should always keep in mind in preparation of the party to make it more joyful that stressful. Whether it’s simple or fancy, one of the keys to having a fun children’s party is to consider what is fitting for your kid’s age, the family’s preference, and of course, the budget. You don’t want your child causing a racket because of being overwhelmed by the mascot or by lots of unfamiliar people crowding around him.

It’s always important to consider and involve your child in the planning process. Younger kids would likely tell you what color theme or cake flavour they would want. For older children, you could talk with them about a party theme, who they would like to invite or even let them choose which outdoor playground they would prefer. You could make your own homemade invitation with your child; younger ones could draw or paint while the older ones could help you make a digitalized invitation. It’s also ideal to plan out the food to be served at the party. Put yours and your child’s creativity in action by making snacks that would fit the party theme.

Make a guest list. For younger children, small groups are recommended for easier management. You could adjust the number of guests according to the child’s age. When sending invitations to your child’s close school friends, it’s a good idea to send it through e-mail or post. It’s risky to send them out at school, as you might be shocked to see that you have more guests than you have expected.

Your aim in hosting a party is for everyone to have fun, so it’s important to start by making the proper steps in the decision-making process. These tips are helpful, but remember that very family is unique, so having a successful birthday party is completely in your own hands.
