Dragon Tail Tag Birthday Game

by Shannon W.
(Portland, OR )

The object of this fun kid game is for the person in the front of the line to catch the "tail" of the dragon (chain of kids), while the dragon tries to get away! The only things required are flags for each team (you can use a scarf, a lightweight towel, or a handkerchief). Make small chains of about four to six kids. Either have team members hold on to eachother's waists or link elbows. Members of the chains can't let go! The end person has a flag or tail (bandanna) hanging behind them or tucked in their back pocket. The object is to have the head of each chain (the dragon's head) get the flag, scarf or whatever from the other team while the dragon stays linked. Both teams attempt to do this at the same time. When one team manages to get the flag, the losing team rotates and the head moves to the back while everyone else moves forward.

British Bulldog Outdoor Party Game

by Michelle

This games is best played in a large, open area such as a backyard, and with a lot of players.

Designate 1-5 players to be the bulldog(s). Then have all the other players line up on one side of the playing area.

The bulldog(s) shouts "1,2,3, British Bulldog!" That is the signal to run. The players try to run all the way across the playing area without being caught by the bulldog(s).

There are several ways to be tagged.

You can be tagged by being simply touched by the bulldog (best if only one bulldog), by having two bulldogs grab your wrists and say "1,2,3, british bulldog" or by being picked up by the bulldog.

If you are tagged by a bulldog, you become a bulldog.

Game continues running back and forth across the playing area, until the number of people that aren't tagged, equals the original number of bulldogs. Then those players become the bulldog(s).

Down-Down Birthday Party Game

by Rebecca N.
(Sault Ste Marie, Canada )

This is a game of catch with a unique twist. The only thing needed is a tennis ball. You throw the ball continuously back and forth until somebody drops it. When someone drops the ball you say "Down on one knee". That person has to drop to one knee. Then the ball is thrown back and forth again, if the same person drops it a second time, you say "Down on two knees". If the same person drops the ball again you say "Down on one elbow", "Down on two elbows" and finally "Down on your chin." If you drop it after that, you are out. But remember, the kids have to stay in the position they're in to catch and throw the ball.

Soaked Soft Drink Party Game

by Bayan
(Adelaide, Australia)

Well this is fun.. all the kids sit in a circle and each receive a can of soft drink. Then we decide half of these people to shake their can vigorously for about a minute while the rest of the kids watch. After that, everyone places there can in the middle and mix the cans up so that the kids can't tell which one was theirs. Each person then picks one can from the middle and holds it just over their nose. This is the fun part.. the kids then open the cans of soft drink when they are above their noses. Half of the kids will get soaked and the other half will be nice and dry... enjoy!

Super Big Ball Outdoor Party Game

by Anonymous

You'll need a super big ball and a super big bucket (make sure the ball fits into the bucket). Split the kids into groups of 2; the groups go one at a time. One person throws the ball and the other holds the bucket and tries to catch the super big ball. The team who catches the most in a minute, wins.

Dont Touch The Ground Tag Outdoor Party Game

by Ellen

This is almost a version of "sandman". All you need is a swing set, and more than three players. Designate one person to be "it". They will be at the bottom of the swing set with their eyes closed, while the other kids find a spot on the swing set to sit. Then, "it" runs up the slide, and tries to tag the other kids. You can move around the swing set as much as you want, BUT if you're not 'it' and you touch the ground, then you become "it". If you are "it" and you touch the ground, then you have to start over. It's really easy and fun once you get how to play!! Probably not for little kids (like some 3 year olds might be able to.)

Outdoor Ship Party Game

by Neva
( California, USA)

This is a great game to play outdoors!

Materials needed:
Get two refrigerator, or washer/dryer cardboard packing boxes and cut in half to form two ships. If you can't find them, you can use plastic tubs. Decorate them into two separate ships, or have the kids decorate them. Purchase a can or two of ping-pong balls or other soft lightweight non injuring type balls.

Directions:
Set the ships far enough apart, but yet close enough for the children to land some of the ping-pong balls inside the ships.

To Play:
Form two teams. Each team gets into their selected ships. At the command of the leader, they shoot their "guns"/"cannons" by hand throwing ping-pong balls at the opponents' ship until they run out of ping-pong balls. The ship with the most ping-pong balls found in it, is the ship that has been sunk.

For Ages: 2-10

This is great for these theme parties: Beach Theme, Pirate Party Theme, Titanic Theme, Ship/Boat Party Theme, Gilligan's Island Team, etc. Just change the ships decoration and the language used to fit the theme.

Can be played indoors or outdoors depending on available room space (but definitely a party game that is most fun to play outdoors!)
