Coolest Kid Birthday Parties

Birthday Guessing Game

by Olivia B.
(Tunnel Hill, GA)

Using the party theme, select items to put in a jar and let the kids guess how many are in the jar. The closest guess wins. For instance, for a Pirate party you can call it "Guess the gold coins in the chest", for a Princess party call it "Guess the pearls in the jewel box", etc.

Fruit Basket Upset Game

For this game you will need enough chairs for each player minus one. So everyone will sit in a circle and one person will be left standing. Place chairs in a circle with at least three feet from the person standing in the middle. Each player is given a fruit name. Example: banana, apple, grape, banana , apple, grape... There should be several people who are given the same fruit. The person in the middle has the freedom to call out a fruit that has been assigned to the group or to call "Fruit Basket Upset." If the player in the middle calls out a fruit, those who have that fruit name have to get out of their seat and find a new seat. They cannot sit back down in their own seat. The person in the middle races to find a seat and a new person is left standing in the middle. If the person in the middle says, fruit basket upset, then everyone gets up and tries to find a new seat. The object of the game is to get a new seat and not be the person left standing. Kids love this game. To avoid having kids purposely trying to be the last one standing, tell them that if they get left in the middle more than three times, they are out of the game. It's a good idea to instruct that no one pushes down anyone who may be smaller. They have to be careful! Have fun!

First One There - Child Game

by Charlie
(Manchester)

First the person who is organizing the game needs to draw/print a picture of sun, moon, lightning, and rain each on its own very large paper. You then stick them on each corner of the room. You have everyone gather up in the middle of the room and than you yell out one of the four corners (sun, moon, lightning, or rain).
The players must run to the picture you say. The last one to the picture is out.

Pop Those Balloons Game

by Kristy L.
(Billerica, MA, USA)

This is a great game for all ages. I'm 13 and I still love to play it! For this game you will need balloons and money or prizes. Blow up the balloons and place money or prizes inside (make sure the balloons are dark and the prizes are lightweight so the kids cannot tell whats inside).

Have all the kids sit in a circle with the balloons in the center. Before you begin, tell each child how many balloons they can pop. Have them start out with one. Count to three, and on three have them pop there balloon. Whatever is inside they get to keep (the children may trade items).

Drop!

by Brian
(Attleboro, MA USA)

For this game you need a divider or something that you can see over but not under.

First, you take a tray full of items that WILL NOT BREAK IF DROPPED! (This is important. A few examples: a pencil, a book, a pillow, a spoon, etc.). You give each kid a piece of paper and something to write with. Put a piece of paper in the middle of where they are sitting with a list of the items on the tray at random.

Now, on the other side of divider (table or whatever) take each item and drop them one by one. After you drop one give each kid time to write down what they think it is. Tell them if they know what it is not to tell anyone. After they've all written what they think it is, drop the next one. Then drop the next one and so on...

The kid who gets the most right, wins!

Pop The Balloons

by Milissa Hill

Balloons are taped onto a big board or on the wall. The contestant has a certain amount of darts or arrows. With their darts/arrows they have to pop as many balloons. Once they run out of their darts/arrows, their score is calculated by the amount of balloons they've popped. For a low score give a small prize, for a medium score - a medium prize, etc.

Pop And Blow Bubble Gum Game

by Vicky Piggin
(New Zealand)

This game is great for older children, who aren't really into pass the parcel and other games for younger children.
Blow up a large number of balloons with a small piece of bubble gum inside each one. The children have to pop as many balloons as they can, by sitting on them. They collect the bubble gum inside. Once all the balloons are popped, the children use their bubble gum to have a bubble blowing competition. The person who collected the most bubble gum will of course have an advantage. The largest bubble (gum) bubble wins the prize!
