As more and more mums opt to have their kid’s party at home, trying to find ways to keep everybody amused until cake and ice cream time can be trying. However, by being a little creative with the party games you can organise a day that everyone will remember for years to come.
Perfect party activities
This can be done in teams and is great if you have lots of guests to keep entertained. Simply put a hula hoop at one end of the garden and give the kids light balls to throw into it.
This is a really fun game and is perfect for a summer party. Put the guests into teams and give the kids a list of things to find in the house and the garden. The first team to find all the objects wins.
Put on music and get them to do some funny dance moves. Make sure they only move when you say ‘Simon Says’ though.
Instead of musical chairs position enough pillows in a circle for everyone to sit on. Play the music, pull away a cushion and watch as kids run to find a seat when the music is turned off.
Before you blow up your balloons fill with sweets. When the party starts get the kids to try to pop the balloons without using their hands.
This is great if you have lots of room outside or inside. Before the party starts, set up an obstacle course. When it is time to play put the guests into teams and see which team wins the race. The winners get a prize.
There will be plenty of balloons at your child’s party, so why not let your little one take advantage of their surroundings with some balloon games. Various games such as hot potato or a new game, balloon ping pong can not only create hours of fun for your child but can keep your child active too.
Sometimes, nothing beats the classic party games and pass the parcel is no exception. It can be a cheap and easy game to organise. By simply popping into your local bargain store, grabbing some cheap toys and wrapping them in newspaper, you will be sure to keep the kids entertained for hours.
