Most people think that the cake served is what matters most when it comes to children’s birthday parties. Thing is, there are many other aspects to think about to make sure the celebrant and other kids have a great time. The activities and games played can make the event a lot more fun. Entertaining birthday games will encourage interaction between young kids and makes an event all the more memorable.
Get the birthday party invitations ready and prepare these games and activities because you are about to give your child a party that they will never forget:
This game is best for parties that will be held outdoors. Plain potato sacks will do – all you have to do it decorate it and make sure designs are in line with the party theme. Remember that children will be playing, so a grassy area with a clear path is best to prevent booboos and injuries. You can also add in interesting elements to the relay path to make the game more exciting.
Pool Prize Search
If you have a large inflatable pool at home, you can set up a prize search. Fill the pool and hide treasures at the bottom. You can also fill the pool with inflatable toys instead to make it difficult to search for the prize. You can add a twist to the games by blindfolding the contestants.
Make an obstacle course in your backyard using chairs, outdoor furniture, ropes, or old tires for participants to climb over or crawl through. Divide the players into teams and have them compete for the fastest time. Make the games more challenging by having the kids complete the course while holding an egg with a spoon using one hand.
Treasure hunts can be played indoors or outdoors. Put together a list of items hidden inside the house (or within the party area)and the first to find all items wins. Items and clues can be toys, clothing, candies, and other objects. Prepare enough clues so each participant can collect items.
Give your kids a party they will remember by playing fun and energetic party games. You can purchase party supplies or get creative with common household items to plan the games and activities that will keep guests entertained until the end.
