It’s your little one’s birthday coming up, and you know what that means! Time to bring out the party favors and plan that amazing event for your child and their friends! After all, no one wants their kid’s party to be boring and a dud, with all parents making sure that their little one’s birthdays are always filled with fun and excitement.
One of the best ways to keep the party exciting are the games and activities planned ahead, of course! Fun games would make it a fun party, to pair with an amazing company and food. However, what are the different activities and games to plan out? Read on as I show you five fun-filled activities to set up in a kid’s birthday party!
Whether you’re looking into planning Yabadoo kids parties or anywhere else around the world, these activities will be enjoyed regardless of who is invited!
- Indoor Games
You’ll be surprised about the infinite possibilities you can do right in the comforts of your own home! There are a ton of indoor games you can try without having to spend a ton of money.
For starters, there are musical chairs or freeze dance, that only requires paper or chairs. Play the music and have children dance. Once the music stops, they need to get on a piece of paper (the “island”) or sit on the chair.
Other popular games like “Bring Me,” or “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” are also classics that will be enjoyed by all the attendees!
- Books and Coloring Areas
For the younger kids (or those waiting for the party to start), why not set up fun, creative stations where they can keep themselves busy before the games begin? With coloring books and enjoyable short stories to read, they’ll be able to have fun as you prepare.
Or, you can also set up other types of creative stations such as building their own paper hats, bookmarks, pillowcases, or if they’re girls, dress-up with stuffed animals! This can be a friendly competition as well, with the most popular design being the winner.
Plus, the children stay in one place and don’t exert much energy (which will be used for the physical games!).
- Treasure Hunt Game or Mini Olympics!
This can be an indoor or outdoor game, sort of like a scavenger hunt! The kids will use both their mental and physical abilities to find the prizes and trinkets that lie in store for them.
Start with the first clue and let them work their way up until they reach the grand prize or destination!
Another awesome idea is a mini Olympics, where they go through a safe yet fun obstacle course. The first one to reach the finish line wins!
For the obstacle course, you can use anything in your home, from pillows, chairs, or blankets! Just make sure that everything is safe to do.
- Field Day Games
Planning to put the birthday party in the backyard? Then start planning out the best games and activities that will leave children rolling in laughter!
My personal favorites are the three-legged and potato sack races, which don’t use many materials but are fun to watch and do.
Or, if you have balloons, try playing the Hot Potato, where you have to keep the balloon up in the air for as long as you can with a group of people. The person who misses is out of the game.
Other fun games are hide-and-seek, dodgeball, unique spins to the game of tag, or even a water balloon fight!
- Face Painting Station
Last but not least, no birthday won’t be complete without some activities the adults can do for the little ones. Hiring a face painter will bring delight to the kids with butterflies, dogs, or other favorite designs painted on their face skillfully.
Other ideas for party activities (that don’t involve games) are hiring entertainment while they eat or rest. May it be a mascot, clowns, or even a magician; it will surely bring joy and laughter while they rest. There are a ton of affordable ones you can hire in your local town.
Wrapping It Up
And there you have it! You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars trying to make sure that your kid’s birthday party is perfect. As long as you have the enjoyable activities that children will enjoy, there will be a ton of memories to make that will be the talk of the class for weeks.
I hope that these activities to set up in a kid’s birthday party gave you an idea of what you should begin planning for the next event. So don’t wait any longer and look into any of these ideas now!
