the party gets going and everyone is warmed up, you will find plenty of
other activities such as team building challenges and theme based games

Don’t forget to have a
back-up plan. Rainy day options are a must for outside parties. My niece
had a party an army party plan, complete with obstacle course. It
rained the day of the party, so she had to improvise with indoor games.
If your games require a large turn out, make sure to have alternatives for smaller crowds “just in case”.

Tell Three Things
Birthday Party Game Ideas
Each person says three things about himself: two of which are true and one of which is a lie.
Then the children, who are sitting in a circle, take turns telling
their three things out loud. Once the child has named the three things,
the others guess which one is the “lie” by raising their hands when they
think the lie is told. This birthday party game idea is a great way
for children to get to know each other.
GOING TO JAMAICA
Birthday party game ideas
This is a fun game that requires the children to pay attention to each other in order to catch on. See suggestions below for ideas for changes that can be made to fit your party theme.
children and one adult sit in a circle. The adult starts the game.
Let’s say the adult’s name is Mary. She says, “My name is Mary, I am
going to Jamaica and I’m taking my music.” “I can go,” she adds.
next child is to repeat except using his or her own name and picking
something they will take. The adult will determine if they can go. The
secret object of the game is to take an item that begins with the first
letter of their name. As the players are told if they can go or not,
they should begin to catch on.
The object of the game can be changed.
For instance, at a Bee movie party, the object can be to take something beginning with a “B” or that pertains to a bee.
For a Disney party, it could be items that are related to Disney
characters like a honey jar (Winnie the Pooh) and a slipper
For a space party, you could use items found in space such as rockets, stars, etc.
The sky is the limit so use your creativity and have fun!
The objective of Twenty Questions is quite simple: guess the person, place or thing in 20 questions or less!
There are no preparations or special materials required to play. Select
one person to begin Twenty Questions. This person is designated as
For each round, this person must choose a secret word: any person, place, or thing.
The person can be living, deceased (a famous person in history), or
fictitious (cartoon or movie character). The place can be anywhere in
the world. The thing can be an object, an animal, a food, etc. Basically
anything can be chosen, but try to make the selected item something
that can be guessed fairly easily.
After the person has chosen a person, place, or thing, the guessing
begins! The other players take turns and ask “yes” or “no” questions in
an attempt to figure out what the chosen answer is. That is, the
questions must be answered with simply “Yes” or “No.” After each guess,
keep track of the number of guesses until it reaches the limit of
20.Once 20 questions are used up, players may not ask any more
If a player correctly guesses the object before then, they
become “it” for the next game and choose the next person, place, or
thing. Otherwise, the secret answer is revealed.Variations for Twenty Questions
This game can be changed a bit for younger children by giving them a
flashcard that is made by gluing a picture onto an index card instead of
having them think up something. The questions can be limited to five or
ten to simplify as well.
*Customize the game to fit the them of
your party! Have the children make their secret work relate to the
theme. Star Wars themed party member could choose words like Luke
Skywalker and a light saber while a Shrek party guest might go for words
like donkey or princess.
