In reality, most children are really very easy to please. If you’re looking for ideas for games for kids birthday parties, you’ll be pleased to learn that you have many options. To throw a fun party for your child’s birthday celebration, all you need some kids birthday party games that are known to be hits.
For some reason, unknown to adults, most kids love using the word “bestest”. You can be the mother that throws the bestest parties and is known as the coolest mom around, it just takes a little planning.
Cats Tails Game
This is one of best games for kids birthday parties that I’ve come across. It provides parents with plenty of photo opportunities. To play this game you will have to assemble a yard long strip of cloth for each child that participates. These strips of cloth represent the cats tails. They are attached to the backs of each child by tucking them into their waistband or with a Velcro attachment. The ends of the strips should barely touch the ground. This game requires a great deal of energy, but since we’re talking about kids, you shouldn’t have any problems.
The idea of this game is to be the only child with a remaining tail. Tails are lost and children are eliminated when their tail is lost. All the children run around, stepping on each others tails, while avoiding having their own tale stepped on. The last child with a tail wins the game. Parents love watching this game as much as children love playing it.
Sweet Ring Toss Game
This is another one of the games for kids birthday parties that every party should include. Kids love it because everyone’s a winner. To play this game you will need 3 three rings, each of them 6″ in diameter. The rings can be either cardboard or wood. You will need a table, a variety of individually wrapped novelty toys and candies.
All the items are spread across the table and each child has the opportunity to throw the 3 three rings onto the table. If a ring lands on the table, and a prize is within the boundaries of the ring, the child wins this prize. The degree of difficulty for this game is controlled by how far or close the table is from the throwing line.
Needle in a Hay Stack
Another great idea for kids birthday party games is the needle in the hay stack game. All the prizes for this game are place in small, individual containers. You can really make thing fun by adding some coins or dollar bills into the mix. You will pile hay up, as high as you can, hiding the prizes in your newly created haystack. It’s a good idea to place a tarp on the ground before making the hay stack.
It’s always a good idea to let any younger children have a head start and remind the older participants to be careful with the little ones. Because some of the children may not succeed at finding their needle in the haystack, it’s a good idea to have some spare prizes set aside. This will ensure that every child is a winner. When considering games for kids birthday parties, its important to remember that its not all about the competition, its about having fun. Kids birthday party games should make all the kids happy.
