Party Games

Here are some kids party ideas to have fun all day long!

Duck, Duck, Goose:

This kid party game starts with everyone sitting in a circle. One person will be the “goose” and will go around the circle tapping each child on the head while saying “duck, duck…” until he taps someone saying “goose”. The new goose has to catch the old goose before he takes the new goose’s place in the circle. If the new goose catches the old goose, then the old goose continues to be it. If the new goose doesn’t catch the old goose then they become it.

Barnyard Bash:

This is a fun kid party game to play with a lot of kids. Think of some animals that make distinctive sounds, such as dogs, cats, pigs, ducks, and horses. Very quietly whisper the name of one of those animals to each kid, making sure that every animal is represented at least twice. Then, at the count of three, have the kids find their own kind of animal by making the noise and joining together in a group. This game is also fun to play with older kids, especially if you give them some more difficult animals, such as turtle, rabbits, or fish.

Red Light / Green Light:

In this birthday party game for kids one person plays the “stop light” and the rest try to touch him. At the start, all the children form a line about 15 feet away from the stop light. The stop light faces away from the line of kids and says “green light”. At this point the kids are allowed to move towards the stoplight. At any point, the stop light may say “red light” and turn around. If any of the kids are caught moving after this has occurred, they are out. Play resumes when the stop light turns back around and says “green light”. The stop light wins if all the kids are out before anyone is able to touch him. Otherwise, the first player to touch the stop light wins the game and earns the right to be “stop light” for the next game.

Team Hug Tag:

The object of this kid party game is to tag people as a team. Two players start off as “it” linking arms at the elbow and chasing to catch another player only with their “free hands”. When a free player is tagged, he must then join the tag team. Only the end players can tag the free players. The game ends when everyone is tagged.

And here are some kids party ideas involving the pinata:

Generally the pinata is tied to a rope and hung from a ring in the ceiling. An adult takes the free end of the rope and pulls it up and down, swinging the pinata to make it more difficult for the children to hit it. Older kids can be blindfolded to make it harder for them to hit the pinata. This way every child has an opportunity to hit it before it breaks. However, children have to be careful, or else they can be the ones beaten!

Remember to fill that pinata with light, small party toys and party accessories that won’t harm the children and won’t break when they fall to the floor. Look through our party supplies to find the party favors to fill your pinata… they are just right for this exciting birthday party game for kids!
