The first one is WILD WEST theme.

Wild West themed birthday party games are great fun for both boys and girls. Have the guests dress up like cowboys and cowgirls for a real hoedown of a party!

Needle in a Hay Stack

Get a few square or round bales of hale and hide. Small trinket size prizes in them. Whatever the kids find they get to keep.


Purchase a couple of sets of plastic horseshoe sets and divide the kids in to teams.

Gold Hunt

For this kid birthday party game, you will a couple of bags of clean play sand (the kind you would fill a sand box with.)

A large square plastic tub and lots of small gold color toys and trinkets such as pennies, pencils, bracelets, matchbox cars and any assortment of goldish colored toys you can find. The kids can either use their hands to dig for their gold or use a strainer and sift through it. Just make sure you have enough toys for everyone to get an equal amount in the birthday party games for kids.

A Wild West birthday party is not complete without a water gun squirt off contest. Each child gets a small water gun and a can the one who fills the can with the most water wins!

The second one, SAFARI party.

Safari themed birthday party games for kids are great time for both girls and boys.

Before the Safari starts mark off an area in your yard (preferably where there are bushes or small trees and find small plastic animals in them). If you happen to have a stuffed animal lover in the family borrow a few large safari animals to set the stage. Make sure you have a CD of jungle music!

Safari Hunt

Divide the kids in to small groups and send them on a safari hunt in search of the small plastic animals you hide. (Make sure you have a few extra set aside in case a few kids don’t find any.) The kids get to keep all the animals they find and the child that finds the most gets a small stuffed animal as a prize.

Safari Search

One of the fun party games that is similar to the hunt but…the kids are in search of a very dangerous wild animal that is on the loose. Your choice of animal lion, tiger, something big and scary. This game will add an air of excitement to the party, the child who finds the animal (a large stuffed animal) gets to keep it as his/her trophy!

Safari Survival

Set up an obstacle course for the kids to make it through.

A few old tires filled with water or mud they have to jump over, a large square plastic tub filled with a slimy substance that holds rubber snakes each child must capture one snake.

The ideas for this game are endless.

A safari themed birthday party will most certainly bring out the wildness in, even the shyest of kids.

Birthday party games for kids should always been fun and filled with excitement. There is nothing quite like the imagination of a child! All the kids need is for an adult to supply them with a few inexpensive items, supervision and a theme for them to run with.

10 Top Kids Party Games for an Enjoyable Party

Are you someone whom finds planning children’s parties a daunting affair? Are you worried about what you are going to do to keep them entertained?

If this sounds like you, then don’t despair as you have certainly not been the first parents to experience this. The good news is, that it doesn’t have to be this way, and there are plenty of EASY and CHEAP ways to keep the kids entertained at your child’s party.

There is a lot to be said about all the traditional kids party games that have been around since our Grandparents generation… and probably longer. These games have withstood the test of time for a reason… because they are good… and they really do work!

Here are 10 kids party games that you can use at your next child’s birthday party. You could pick one or two, or use the entire 10, but one thing is for certain… and that is the children will love them!

Pass the Parcel: All children love opening presents, so what is not to love about this game! Simply find a small present (suitable for both a boy and a girl) and wrap it up. Then have several layers of wrapping around the main present. Inside each wrapping it is ideal to place either another small item (a piece of candy, balloon, pen, spinning top… anything small). This is the small gift for the child to keep that opens that layer.

Sit the children in a circle and play some music. Ask them to pass the parcel around the circle until the music stops. When the music stops, that child can open the layer! For younger children it is recommended that you ensure each child has a chance to open at least one layer.

Pin the tail on the donkey: The traditional way to play this game is to have a donkey and lots of tails that the kids will pin onto the donkey (hence the name). You can however use this game to suit any theme you are having. For instance, Pin Dora’s hair band into her hair or pin the banana into the monkey’s hand. You can buy ready-made kits, or if feeling creative you could draw something yourself. Simply have some blind folds available and each child in turn has the opportunity to pin the tail on the donkey. Blindfold the child and ask them to pin the tail as close to where it should be as possible.

Musical Statues: Are there some budding dancers in the room? Choose some favourite music and simply ask the kids to dance! When they least expect it, turn the music off, and the children have to stand as still as possible. The last to stand still is out! Continue the game until only one child remains a statue.

Musical bumps: This game is played very similar to musical statues, except when the music stops, the children have to immediately sit down on their bottom. The last child to sit down is out! Keep playing until only one child remains.

Musical chairs: Gather a chair for each child at the party and place in a circle (seat facing out of the circle). Ask all the children to sit on a chair and then start to play the music. As the music is playing, the children have to walk/dance around the circle of chairs. Have an adult remove one of the chairs. Turn off the music and the children have to sit on a chair. The child left standing is out! Continue until only one child remains sitting, and this is the winner.

Simon Says: This is a great party game that is perfect for younger children too. Designate an adult who is Simon (or change the name to suit the theme of the party ie: Mickey Mouse or Dora the Explorer). Then say “Simon says… put your hand on your head”. The children must do what Simon says. BUT, Simon will trick the children by sometimes saying “put your hands on your head”. If ‘Simon says’ wasn’t mentioned, then the children that made the action are out. Continue with lots of different commands until only one child remains.

Apple bobbing: If it’s a sunny day, this would be a great game for the children to play outside. Organise a large bowl, fill with water and place numerous apples in the water. The children will take it in turns to try to retrieve an apple with their teeth, and their arms behind their back.

Follow my leader: Have an adult as the designated ‘leader’. They will hop, skip, jump, dance etc. The children all have to follow and copy the actions of the leader.

Memory tray: This is a great game if you are hoping for a bit of peace and quiet during the party. Have a tray filled with all sorts of items from around your home and give the children a few minutes to try to remember as many items on the tray. Give them each a pen and paper and then cover the tray and ask them to remember as many items as possible, in say 1 minute. The winner is the one that has remember the most items.

Sleeping Lions: This is a great game to use towards the end of a party. Again this can be tailored to any theme you are having (Sleeping fireman, fairies, ballerina’s… etc). Ask the children to lie down on the floor and ask them to pretend to be sleeping. If the child moves or makes a sound, they are out. If the children are all too good at this game, you can walk around them, tickle them or try to make them laugh and see who can remain sleeping!

These ten kids party games will be sure to put a smile on the children’s faces and in turn on yours! Simplicity is the key to a successful party and with some planning and preparation, the party doesn’t have to be a daunting affair!

Best Tips for Stress Free Child Party Games

When planning a child birthday party, just a little bit of organisation will go a long way. A good selection of child party games will keep the group interested and the party running smoothly. Always keep in mind that during the course of the day the weather may turn against you so be prepared to move the party (and games) indoors if necessary!

Have an idea of how you would like the party to flow- a typical choice would be: some games or a party craft to start, a break for food and cake, and then some more games or free play to wind up the party.

Either way a mix of games with present opening and food dispersed between should maintain a good flow.

In selecting the child party games it is wise to have a few more games prepared than you think you will need. Some games may finish quickly or if the children are not showing interest, a couple of back-ups can save you from any embarrassment. Prepare all of the music, props and prizes before the party and make sure that you are clear on the rules. If you do not want to give out prizes after every game then choose games that do not have clear ‘winner’ and are less competitive.

A mix of active games, those that allow the children to wind-down, and perhaps a craft activity should be plenty for a party that is lasting roughly two hours. Two hours is generally long enough for kids aged from between 3 and 6 years old.

A party craft is often a good way to start a party, allowing the kids to mingle with each other while making a party hat, loot bag or something similar. Active games give them a chance to burn off some of that party excitement and some quieter, cool-down games can help to settle kids who might have had a bit much red cordial!

Utilise other parents or older kids to help out with games if required. If younger children are attending then many of their parents will stay anyway and won’t mind acting as timekeeper or judge for a game. If you are preparing food and drinks and trying to run the games all on your own then you are going to be stretched to the limit, so ask for help if you feel you need it.

When selecting the actual party games keep in mind the ages of the children attending. Younger children prefer simple, short games, nothing that requires too much explaining or has numerous rules. Think of the games that you enjoyed at parties that you attended as a child. Traditional games like Pass the Parcel, Musical Chairs or quieter games like Charades or Dead Lions are all favourites that most kids understand and have played before. Many of these games can be renamed to suit the particular theme of your party, don’t feel like you have to reinvent the wheel

For older children you can be more adventurous with games and the party child will no doubt aid you in selecting games that he/she feels are appropriate to the theme of the party. If you have a mix of ages present be sure that the younger children are not being caught up in the boisterous activity of older children.

Whatever games you choose be flexible, and willing to improvise. Allow the children to set the pace in regards to the length of the games. If they are all enjoying a game then let it continue, if not move on. Remember that FUN is the aim of the day, if the kids see you relaxed and having fun then they will too!
