Organize party games for your kids!
When gathering kids birthday party ideas, always think of the different factors in deciding which games to include. Consider the age of the participants and the location of the venue.
Here are some ideas for party games for kids:
Outdoor games are sometimes more fun because the play area is larger. This is only suitable for warm weather. Some cool outdoor games are obstacle course and relay races. You can do it in your backyard or in a playground. Some of the outdoor games may be more likely to be considered as games for boys because they sometimes can be more adventurous than girls. Boomerang games and Tug of War are some of the popular outdoor games in Australia.
Some more popular outdoor party games are:
- Water Balloon Fights
This is similar to dodgeball but instead of using balls, kids hit each other with water balloons.
- Freeze Tag
Players are tagged by the “it” get frozen and other players should unfreeze them without getting tagged themselves.
- Scavenger Hunt
Kids are divided into teams and they hunt for the hidden items included on the list that are given to them. The first team who completes the list wins.
Most birthday parties are held indoors. Some of the indoor games can be considered as toddler party games because it is safer for toddlers to play inside. Girls games like dress up games are perfect for slumber parties.
Some popular indoor party games are:
- Musical Chairs
Kids form a circle in front of chairs that are one less than the number of players. They walk and dance around the chairs until the music stops – that’s when they sit on a chair each. The kid without the chair is out. Keep removing one chair until there is only one player left which will be the winner.
- Trivia Game
This is perfect for holiday parties like Christmas. Ask them Christmas related questions like the names of Santa’s reindeers or titles of Christmas songs. Kids can also play this in birthday parties where the questions asked are trivia about the birthday celebrant.
- Freeze Dance
Kids dance while the music is playing. When it stops, the kids must freeze. If they move (even the slightest movement counts), they are out.
Props and materials that are used for the games are very affordable. You can just gather some safe and recyclable materials in your home and you’re ready to go. You can browse our ActiveActivities Directory for more tips and resources.
