Where are you having it? Indoors or out? How many kids are going to be there and what are the ages? If you are going to have mostly toddlers, keep it simple. They really can't play "games". Find activities to keep them busy and hand out treat bags. For older kids, you can't go wrong with a pinata! And they will play just about anything if they are promised a dollar store prize. Pin the tail on the donkey, or go with your theme.... pin the nose on the clown, or Elmo... whatever you want. Sack races. Tie balloons on their ankles and then they try to pop everyone elses balloons. The last one with a balloon wins. The egg on a spoon game. Simon says, musical chairs.
