Clothes Pegs in Milk Bottle Indoor Party Game

by Judy
(Canada)

You need an old fashioned glass milk bottle or similar bottle with a fairly wide mouth. You also need some wooden clothes pegs.

Each child stands with the bottle directly in front of him/her and attempts to drop a clothes peg into the mouth of the milk bottle. They cannot bend over and must drop the clothes peg from elbow height.

Give them 5 clothes pegs each and the one with the most pegs in the bottle wins.

Balloon Pop Indoor Party Game

by Brittany

Have an adult or children blow up a balloon for each person. The first one to sit on their balloon and pop it wins a prize! (you are not allowed to use your hands).

If you want everyone to feel that they have won, put little trinkets inside the balloon, then the balloon will be blown up with a few small prizes inside. When someone sits and pops their balloon, they receive the little prize that was inside their balloon.

Mother May I Indoor Party Game

by Sophia M.
(Northwood, NH, USA)

This 'Mother May I' indoor party game is like red light Mother' (or Father). Then all the rest of the kids line up about 20 feet away facing Mother. Mother then chooses one of the kids and says something like, "Robert, you may take five giant steps." Then Robert responds with, "Mother, may I?" Mother then says, "Yes, you may."

Mother then addresses someone else, and the game continues until one of the kids reaches Mother. Whoever makes it to Mother first becomes Mother for the next round.

During the game there may be kids who are overly excited and take steps without asking... that's when Mother reminds them of their manners and the player has to go back to the beginning line.

To add some pizazz to the game, Mother can also ask the player to hop on one foot or make a silly 'twirly' step etc.

Jumping for Balloons Indoor Party Game

by Charvi Singh
(Bangalore)

This Jumping for Balloons indoor party game can be played by age 3-7 years

Procedure:

1. Disperse several gas balloons in the party room so that there strings are just out of reach of the children

2. Play some music

3. While the music is playing, the children have to jump for the strings (that are connected to gas-filled balloons) and collect as many as they can


You can either play as a contest - 'whoever collects the most is the winner', OR add little candies in each balloon before the party (when you are just filling them up), and the children receive the candies from the balloons they collect - that way everyone is a winner.

(For girls 11 and up) Play the song "When I Grow Up" by TPCD. Have the girls sit in a circle and one person in the middle who must pick a "job" out of a hat (beforehand write lots of job names on pieces of paper and put in the hat). Then they must perform their job, they may not state or say their job out loud but may do any other actions and the other girls need to guess the job. ENJOY!

Candy Challenge Indoor Party Game

by Eileen
(England)

Have a bowl of candies (skittles, smarties, M&M's, or any other candy that is small and round). Have the children form a circle and place the bowl in the middle.

Then the first person to go closes their eyes and chooses two skittles and only two. Then he/she opens their eyes and if it is a match they can eat it, but here is the fun part. If it is not a match the person must leave in their mouth the skittles and wait for their next turn and hopefully choose a match.

WARNING: This game may not work in all cases. Once I had an all-girls party and this game worked out fine, the children were well behaved and followed the rules. When my brother had this game in his party, children started fighting over the skittles. Just make sure your guests can sit still and follow the rules through the whole game or else this game can upset children. One solution is to have an adult help out. But one thing for sure is children will love this game if it is played fair (best for older children who are mature enough not to fight over the candy).

Enjoy

Left or Right Indoor Party Game

by Jessica
(North Dakota)

Before your guest's come over, have a story written about the birthday girl or boy. In the story it has to have a bunch of 'left' and 'right' words, for example "Sally was in gymnastics and she did flips to the right" or "Sally is left handed" and similar things like that.

When your guests arrive, have them all sit in a circle with a prize (start the prize off with the birthday girl or boy). Then have a person who inst playing read the story out-loud and whenever they say "left" or "right" from the story, the person holding the gift gives the prize to the person sitting on the left or right (whichever word was said).

By the end of the story, whoever ends up with the prize gets it.

In the Dark Hide-and-Go-Seek Indoor Party Game

by Kelly
(New York)

First you need to buy some glow sticks - you can get them at the dollar store or Walmart (I prefer the dollar tree because they are cheap and a lot cooler).

You turn all of the lights off and play while holding glow sticks around your house. One person is the seeker the others are the hiders. When the seeker counts to 20 he/she goes to find the other players, whoever is found last gets a prize.
