Party Games

Put a stool upside down. Players must stand at each leg of the stool giving their backs to the stool. The players are blindfolded. Each of them holds a spoon in his/her hand. At the leader’s command the players turn around and try to place the spoon on the leg of the stool as soon as possible. The player to place the spoon first on one of the stool’s leg wins the game.

You can plan different kids birthday party games with this party idea. Instead of using a spoon, try using a coin for younger kids, or a marble for older ones. You can even divide children in groups of four and have a stool for each group. Players of each team have to be careful not to move the stool to help other players in their team place the spoon on the stool’s legs. The team that finishes first wins.

Hats and Shoes
This can be played with just hats and shoes or an assortment of different clothes. Put an equal number of different items into a bag a shirt, a hat , pants, socks, shoes. Each player will receive a bag. On the word Go they have to put on the items in the bag, the one to put all the items on first is the winner.

You’ll need 10 balloons for this competition. 2 players of each team participate in it. Their task is to take 5 balloons (not by the strings) and to carry them to the opposite wall of the room. The one who gets there first wins. You can add one balloon at a time when all players have been able to carry the balloons to the other side.

Played to music, all the players move round while the music is playing, when the music stops the players have to stand like statues, anyone who moves is out, start the music again and repeat as many times as you want.

Red Light, Green Light
Before the game, lay two lengths of rope, or crepe paper, about 25 feet apart in your play area to make start and finish lines. The birthday child stands in front of the finish line (they’re the Police Officer), while the others stand behind the start line. The game begins when the Police Officer turns his/her back on the other players and shouts, “Green Light!” He/she then turns around and counts to five.

While the Police Officer is counting, the other players try to run or walk quickly toward the finish line. When the Police Officer has finished counting to five he/she shouts, “Red Light!” and turns around quickly. The other players must freeze instantly. If the Police Officer catches anyone moving, that player must return to the starting line. Play continues until one of the participants crosses the line while the Police Officer’s back is turned. That player then becomes the Police Officer.
