If you’re throwing a kids party, there is likely to be one thing at the top of the agenda – entertainment. Get it wrong and you’ll probably be faced with some bored children, but give them fun things to do and see and everyone can have a great time. Having the right children’s party games may well be first on your list of priorities, and with so many options to choose from you’ll be spoilt for choice.
What games could I get?
Games consoles and electronic devices might be the entertainment options of choice for everyday use, but when it comes to a children’s birthday party you can’t beat traditional alternatives. Go back to basics and you’ll be able to give kids a fantastic time, packed full of fun, and here are just a few options to consider:
- Pin the tail on the? Pin the Tail style games have been around for ages. The traditional option was Pin the Tail on the Donkey, but these days you can get everything from Pin the Parrot on the Pirate to Pin the Crown on the Princess. Games like this will always go down well and are sure to give kids the fun they’re looking for, and if you add a few prizes into the mix it becomes even more enjoyable. Using sticky tape or adhesive tac is usually the best way to affix the tail these days, rather than the traditional pin.
- Pass the Parcel. Another classic, Pass the Parcel will go down in history as one of the best kids games ever invented. Sit children in a circle, start the music and let the excitement commence, and if you include plenty of little prizes and party favours between layers and try to ensure that each child gets a turn unwrapping, you can’t go wrong.
- Musical chairs, bumps and statues. These games are sure to provide hours of fun, and if you give it a modern twist with musical floor mats you can add an extra layer of enjoyment into proceedings.
These are just a few options that you might want to consider, and with no need for expensive equipment you’ll have a birthday on a budget whilst still being able to keep kids happy and entertained. Of course, you will need some basic supplies if you want everything to go according to plan, and if you’re looking for a few options you’ve come to the right place.
