Birthday party games are one of the most important parts of the party. While cake, frozen treats, and presents are loads of fun; without having a way to entertain the guests the party can easily turn into a yawn-fest. Even worse would be ensuing chaos whenever a group of children that has consumed sugary cake and frozen treats is left to their own devices to keep things interesting.

The following birthday party games include everyone, they’re simple to get together with a minimum of supplies, plus they all will ensure lots of laughs in the guests. Parties should be fun, which games help make that fun happen.

Whisper The Message (Age 4-5)

What you need:

  • White board along with a marker (optional)

Group the kids into two and also have each group form a line. The number of members per group can vary (like 5-15 kids in each group), the greater kids, the funnier the game. Give a note, like a statement, or an idea towards the first kid on each line. And also have them whisper the message because it is to the next kid, until it reaches the finish of the line. The group with the closest someone to the original message wins.

A variation is to have the first kid in line browse the message and have the last kid lined up write it again on a white board having a marker.

Pin It Game (Age 5-6)

What you need:

  • A cork board Thumb tax or pins

This works similar to Pin the Tail around the Donkey game, but you can try other ideas, like pinning the Football on the Goal, or the Nose towards the Clown, or even pin the Hammer on Thor’s hands. Play in groups or individually. Blindfold the kid and spin him. Have him pin the object on the illustration (with the cork board under it). Have hours of fun and laughter.

Water Relay Game (Age 5-6)

What you need:

  • A small inflatable pool or a small tub
  • Two large pails
  • Two small cups
  • Water

Fill the inflatable pool or tub with water and put the pails on the far end. Create two groups where each group has 5-10 kids. Have the group line up on both sides of the tub or pool. Each kid within the line will get water from the pool having a cup and carry it towards the pail. There should only be single serving or spoon per group. The group with most water in their pail wins.

Sponge Relay Race (Age 7-10)

What you need:

  • A small inflatable pool or a small tub
  • Two large pails
  • Two sponges
  • Water

A variation of the Water Relay Game, however this party game is more challenging. Instead of using cups, kids uses sponges to absorb water from the pool and squeezing it towards the pail. The spillages and squeezing part will add more delay to the race, offering more obstacles.

Marshmallow Tower (Age 7-10)

What you need:

  • 2 bags of marshmallows
  • 2 boxes of toothpicks (or uncooked pasta)

This birthday party game brings about teamwork, competiveness, creativity, and the math genius (who knows) among the kids. Group them into groups and hand each group a bag of marshmallows along with a box of toothpicks. Have each group build the best (and structurally stable) marshmallow tower within a limited amount of time (like three of five minutes). And be amazed how the kids will use their imagination to complete the task. For additional challenge, you can use uncooked pasta instead of toothpicks (given that they break off more easily).
