Coolest Kid Birthday Parties

Silly Outdoor Scavenger Hunt

by Rachel T.
(Plain City, OH)

Items needed: various dress up items (the funnier, the better!). Set up just like a normal scavenger hunt with clues at each destination (at least 2 routes, so teams aren't just following each other). Each team will select one player to be captain and do as the clues say. Each destination will have an item that the captain will need to wear. Great examples to keep it fun are billybob teeth, wigs, gigantic sunglasses, etc. The first team done wins.

note: for older teens, get neighbors/friends involved and make some of the clues instruct teams to ask certain houses for items.

An example: Stop at a house with a (give clue). Instruct team to knock on door and ask "Does my hair look alright?" That house will tell them NO and give them a wig.

I set this type of hunt up for a neighbor's daughter's 14th birthday, and it was a riot. They were laughing hysterically all the way till the finish.

Mummy Wrap Party Game

by Sandy Nowlin
(Commerce, OK)

You will need A LOT of toilet paper!

Have people pair up. One will be the Mummy and one will be the wrapper.

Choose 3 pairs to compete (more or less depending on how many prizes you want to give). All wrappers will have 1 roll of toilet paper. The wrapper will begin wrapping when you say "GO". The mummy must stand with arms stretched out and may not move. The first wrapper with an empty toilet paper roll is the winner.

You can apply your own rules. But to make it a little more challenging we require the mummy to be wrapped in some fashion around the head, arms, legs and trunk!

Also another little twist is after the mummy is wrapped they switch places and the mummy wraps the wrapper.

Hilarious and a ton of fun at Halloween parties!

Chin To Chin Cold Water Balloon Party Game

by Jennifer Owen
(Splendora, TX, USA)

Played exactly like pass the orange, but in the summer only.

You use water balloons filled with really cold water. Everyone sits/stands in a circle and the game starts when someone starts passing the cold water balloon - but with no hands! They have the water balloon under their chin and pass it to the next person who takes it with their chin (the water balloon is held between the chin and the front of the neck).

The two people who drop the water balloon are both out and the game continues until there are only two people playing. They keep passing one to another until the water balloon falls and then everyone judges who dropped the water balloon. The person who didn't drop is the winner!

Cup Blowing Party Game

by Sandy Nowlin
(Commerce, OK)

You will need a length of string or yarn and a paper or Styrofoam cup. Punch a hole in the center of the bottom of the cup. Run the string or yarn through the hole.

Ask 4 people who are not participating to lend a hand (we usually ask the elders of the group). Each person will hold an end of the string and stretch it out tight.

Form two teams. Each participant must place hands behind their backs and blow the cup from the start to the end. Once they get to the end, they grab the cup and run it back down the string to the starting line and the next person will continue. The team finishing first is the winning team.

Rather than hand out prizes, we hand out play money and have a general store where near the end of the party everyone can go and buy prizes.

Guide Race Outdoor Party Game

by Grace

The game is played in pairs. One of the people in each pair is blindfolded, the other guides them around, over, or under obstacles.

(For younger kids I suggest no obstacles)

They go 1 pair at a time so there should be a person timing each pair and writing their time down on a piece of paper. Which ever pair has the fastest time wins.

Very simple.

All the members of the team run till they get to the finish line and the first person to get to the finish line wins! :)

by Samantha

The Donut Outdoor Party Game

by Kate
(Australia)

You need to have one donut (usually cinnamon) for every player. Tie one end of a piece of string to a clothesline or tree and the other end to the donut and repeat this for all the donuts. All the players line up in front of their own donut and with their hands behind their back, have to eat the donut. It can be quite tricky with the donut swinging around, but it's really great fun for both children and adults! Whoever finishes their donut first wins!

Ball Toss Up Outdoor Party Game

by Jessie Temple
(Plant City, Florida, USA)

This game is really simple and a lot of fun!

One and more people can play it, all you need is a light ball. You throw it up in the air and you form your hands locked together (as if you're hitting a volley ball). If you have teams, whoever keeps there ball bouncing in the air longer - wins!

Basically you keep hitting the ball up and up.
