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
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.
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
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”.
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…
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
OBSTACLE COURSE IN THE PALACE
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.
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
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
If you are giving out prizes, Cinderella glass slipper chalk is a perfect idea.
BALLS IN A BUCKET
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
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.
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”.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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
little birthday princess and her royal guests would like to be
entertained at the Princess Party. So how do you entertain toddler
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
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.

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

metallic paint pen. A black bow tie can easily be made out of black
ribbon and hot glued to the sack.

with an iron. Then sew down the two flaps or if you prefer, you can use
