PRINCESS PARTY GAMES

Have a royal ball!

Spark some magic in the Princess Party with Princes games. We have some charming Princess theme games below and more games can be found in our all-around game section.

PRINCESS ICEBREAKERGAMES AND ACTIVITIES

Help your royal guests get to know each other better. Choose from games below and others from our general icebreaker section according to the age of the children and location of the Princess Party. Some are best indoors while others work better outside.




WHAT’S IN YOUR HANDBAG?

Choose a guest to be “the princess” and give them a princess handbag full of princess accessories.

You can purchase the purse and princess items online or use what you have from around the house such as fake pearls and a ring. A tiara and magic wand can be created using instructions from our homemade craft section and also can be purchased online.

The princess then faces the party guests. She is allowed to turn around and pick one thing out of the purse that the others cannot see. Then, she is to describe it and let the rest of the group guess what it is. Whoever guesses correctly is then “the princess”.


IF I WERE A PRINCESS

Have the royal guests sit in a circle. Start the game out by saying part of a sentence like: If I were a princess, I would… Have the children take turns filling in the rest of the sentence. This icebreaker is so fun, you may want to do several partial sentences. “If I were a princess, my friends would…”, is another starter. This game is a fun way for the children to get to know one another and of course, if there are boys present, just change “princess” to “prince”.


THREE WISHES

Purchase or make a magic wand. Have the children sit in a circle. One will start the game by holding the magic wand and naming three wishes. Then they pass the magic wand to the person next to them who will also name three wishes. The game continues until every child has had their turn.


I FEEL LIKE A PRINCESS WHEN…

Have the children sit in a circle and go around the room finishing this sentence, “I feel like a princess when…”. One child may feel like a princess when her hair is fixed pretty while another one may when she attends a Princess Party. It is fun for the children to learn about themselves and others.


OBSTACLE COURSE IN THE PALACE

The princess is looking or her tiara! Make an obstacle course for the children to go through in order to help the princess find it. Use boxes for them to crawl through, pillows to go over, stacks of books to go around, and whatever else you can find that is safe and fun.

Place a tiara at the end of the course. The first child to it wears it until the next one comes through. Everyone wins once the last child makes it through. The object of the game is to be a team and just to have fun.




CINDERELLA’S SLIPPER

This game is like “hot potato” except a glass slipper is substituted for a potato. Sit the children in a circle and set a timer. Have them toss around the glass slipper until the clock strikes midnight (when the timer goes off).

The child holding the slipper or the last one to touch it when the timer goes off is “out”. Play until there is only one left who is then declared the winner, but in keeping with our philosophy that “everyone is a winner”, it is a good idea to reward every player.

If you are giving out prizes, Cinderella glass slipper chalk is a perfect idea.


BALLS IN A BUCKET

Fill a white or pink tub, trash can or plastic container with pink golf balls. Count them as you put them in (preferably before the Princess Party) and write the amount down on a notepad that you put out of site. Have the children guess how many balls are in the bucket. The one that guesses correctly or is the closest to it is the winner. As always though, everyone is a winner.

*The balls can be used for other games as well such as some of the ones listed below.


GATHERING PINK DIAMONDS

The princess has met Prince Charming and is getting married. She has requested that all of the kingdom bring as many diamonds as they can to her so she can chose one.

Divide the children into two teams. Place pink golf balls in a container. At the count of three, team one will hop on one leg to the container and gather as many balls as they can without using their hands.

While gathering they can stand on two feet but must hop to the balls as well as back. If a ball drops, it cannot be counted. Count the number of balls the team has collected and put them back in the container for team two to retrieve. The team that collects the most wins.


PRETTY PRINCESS

Divide the children into couples. If there is an odd number, that’s when the Queen (you) gets to play. If there are princes in the group, they automatically pair up with a girl and get to be “the artist”.

For couples that are both girls, they get to draw out of the hat (or glass slipper) to see who is the artist and who is the princess. Once that is decided, let them draw to see what order they will go in.

With that done, drape a sheet over the princess and have her sit on a chair. Her artist will hide behind her and the sheet with only his arms showing. The princess’ arms do not show. The child who is the artist will have a container of supplies that the other children cannot see.

Supplies include: lipstick, blush, a hairbrush, a washrag, toothbrush and toothpaste (needless to say, you will need a new toothbrush for every princess) and whatever else you want to put in. The s/he will proceed to apply the products, one by one, on the princess (s/he can’t see her face and his hands and arms are acting as her hands and arms).

The game can get quite funny so you will want to take pictures. This is a favorite in our family.


PRINCESS LEAP FROG

The frog is trying to get to the princess for the famous kiss that will turn him into a prince.

Have the children stand in a line. Choose one person to start. All other players then kneel on the ground and rest their heads on the ground, covered by their hands.

The chosen starting player will place his or her hands on the back of the person at the back of the line. He or she must press on the person's back and leap over the person, spreading his or her legs apart and hopping like a frog. The player continues hopping until reaching the front of the line, then kneeling and covering his or her head.

The game continues indefinitely as the person at the back of the line is always the next to leapfrog over the other players. You can set a timer or play a song to end it if you want to.The point object of the game is to have fun and be silly.


PRINCESS DRESS UP

Fill a large box with dress up clothes. You can use clothes from around the house or attic or purchase from a yard sale or thrift store. Hats, high heel shoes and nylons are great too. In a smaller box, fill with cosmetics, child nail polish and hair accessories.

Have the children stand in a line.

One by one, each child is blindfolded then led to the two boxes where s/he will proceed to dress up. Once again, the object of the game is just to laugh and have fun.


PIN THE CROWN ON THE PRINCESS

No birthday Princess Party is complete without a version of “pin the tail on the donkey”. Of course a princess prefers to pin a crown on. Disney Princess Party Game will be a big hit.





PRINCESS FIRST BIRTHDAY GAMES


The little birthday princess and her royal guests would like to be entertained at the Princess Party. So how do you entertain toddler royalty?




FUN IN THE CASTLE

Build a castle or palace from a large box. Use markers, paints, glitter and shimmering paint pens to sparkle it up. Cut a front door and several windows and let the children play inside with stuffed animals, dolls and even a plush princess chair. Play peek-a-boo with them through the openings for even more fun.


BUCKETS OF FUN

Fill pink, white or pastel baskets or buckets with balls, stuffed toys (a stuffed prince frog is perfect), bath toys, books and blocks. Set one in front of each of the small children and watch them play. They will dump the toys out and fill them up again. The ritual is great fun for babies and entertaining for adults to watch as well. Let the children take them home when the Princess Party is over.

*You can decorate the containers with Princess First Birthday Party theme stickers and don’t forget, you can even get personalized stickers.







HOMEMADE PRINCESS PARTY FAVOR SACKS

Use white, pink or pastel colored lunch sacks to make your own Princess Party favor sacks. Razzle-dazzle them by gluing on shiney sequins, jewels and practically anything that sparkles.

You can use a glittery paint pen to make squiggles or even write out the names each royal guest on their sack. Glitter can also be glued straight on and comes in all sorts of colors and sizes.

For the icing on the cake, use a hot glue gun to glue on a bow made out of satin ribbon or lace or make tow slits in the front of the sack and lace a ribbon through then tie in a bow.Another idea is to hot glue a tiara on each sack or even a magic wand.

Princess stickers can be applied to the sacks. Personalized Princess theme stickers are available as well. No matter what age your birthday princess is, she can help place stickers on.

Stamping is fun too. Princess stamps are available at most craft stores and online as well.

For the prince charmings in attendance, blue or white sacks are great and can be decorated with knights in shining armor or heraldry stickers and stamps.

Rather than hot gluing a tiara, a crown is a great option and can even be cut out of construction paper and painted with a gold metallic paint pen. A black bow tie can easily be made out of black ribbon and hot glued to the sack.

Use your imagination and have fun. Ask your little princess to contribute her own ideas, you may be amazed at how creative and original her highness can be. Enjoy!


HANDMADE FABRIC PRINCESS BAG

Cut out a rectangle of fabric and lay wrong-side up so you see the back of the fabric.

For the top of the bag, fold in 1/2 inch on each shorter side and press with an iron. Then sew down the two flaps or if you prefer, you can use pinking shears to trim so you don’t have to hem it and it will give it a decorative effect as well. Another option is to sew or glue on lace which also omits the need to hem.

Fold bag in half, bright sides together. Sew top and bottom sides so that only the part you already sewed, glued or used pinking shears on is the only open side.

Flip bag right-side-out, fill with gifts, and tie with ribbon.

*Go as frilly as you want with netted, shimmery or metallic fabric. You can glue or sew on sequins or beads or may even want to paint with a glittery paint pen. Princess theme fabric is another great option.

Use your imagination and have fun. Ask your little princess to contribute her own ideas, you may be amazed at how creative and original her highness can be. Enjoy!







PRINCESS FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY FAVORS

Your little princess will want to send her royal guests home with a piece of the palace.

You can give toddler-friendly treats to the younger ones such as princess fairytale books for babies, bubbles, large size crayons and princess coloring books, princess stickers, stuffed frogs, balls and bath toys.

Toddler snacks such as yogurt bites and fruit puffs can be distributed in zip lock baggies. Sippy cups, fun straws, and plush magic wands are fantastic ideas as well.

Place the gifts inside a Princess First birthday favor bag or make your own bag out of a pink paper sack and personalized Princess First birthday stickers.

Another great and convenient idea is this toddler Disney Princess toddler favor kit that comes complete with all you see here.

Magic Wand

What’s a princess without a magic wand? Use a pencil, long stick or dowel rod to wrap foil (silver or colored), crepe paper or strips of fabric around. Glue on sequins, rhinestones, glitter and anything else you can find that sparkles. Cut a star out of cardboard and glue on some foil to completely cover it. Attach ribbon streamers which you can purchase at a craft or fabric store. Shades of pinks, purples, pastels or even silver and gold work perfectly.

Don’t be shy to fancy it up. Girls love glitz, especially princesses.

Princess Tiara

Adorn your birthday princess and her friends with a homemade tiara. Simply use pipe cleaner or star garland. Make a circle large enough to fit on her highness’ head. Use two if needed. Twist ends together.

Tie curling ribbon onto the halo and curl or use tiny fabric ribbon and let flow. Shades of pinks, purples or pastels are perfect for the occasion.

Add all the frills: shiny sequins, rhinestones, glitter and anything else you want that sparkles and shines. Your princess is now ready to meet up with her fairy godmother or maybe even Prince Charming.

* You can also use a headband. Wrap foil (colored or silver) around it and add ribbon and glitz as to the halo.

HOMEMADE PRINCESS GIFT BASKETS

You don’t have to be a basket case figuring out this easy princess project. Weave got simple instructions for you.

Collect enough baskets for each of your royal guests of honor. These can be ones you have around the house, preferably similar sizes. You can also pick them up cheaply at a thrift shop or dollar store.

Paint them if you would like. Spray paint is easiest but craft paint works as well. Pink is perfect. White, red, or a pastel color make nice choices as well. Make them sparkle and shine by using a glitter paint or add it when the paint is dry. Don’t forget the magic fairy dust. Iridescent glitter is available in spray or sprinkles and adds that extra fairytale touch to the baskets.

Now you are ready to decorate the baskets. With a hot glue gun, add lace or a ruffle around the basket top. Tie a ribbon in a bow and glue it on where the two ends of the lace or ruffle ends. You can do all the baskets alike or vary them. This is a fantastic way to unload some sewing scraps you have had around the house.

You can glue flowers or princess accessories onto the basket.

Fill the baskets with colored tissue or shredded paper or foil, available in the gift wrap section of many variety stores or craft shops. You can even use Easter grass.

Place an assortment of Princess theme gifts in the basket, beginning with the largest placed at the back and the others neatly following.

The baskets will certainly put a twinkle in your little guest’s eyes and a smile on their faces and no doubt they will be used for years to come.

ROYAL HANDPRINTS

In a covered craft area, let the little ones dip their hands in the mix then make a handprint on a white piece of paper (thicker is better). Print the child’s name on his or her creation (Princess Sarah, Prince Trevor, etc.) and let them stick on a few Princess First Birthday stickers. Let them take them home to “show and tell”.
