  • when my mom thru parties for us she didnt plan any games: she would have someone supervise the trampoline, have a pinata, and make water balloons..

    most of our time was consumed by the food...lol
    she just set up a cupcake bar: basically different cupcakes with no toppings added and let us decorate our own...it took up a lot of time, especially on my sisters B-days when she was young, because kids coordination is not that great...LOL BUt that was always a hit until I refused b-day parties

  • Mummy Wrap Game
    One of the easiest and most fun games! See which team can wrap their mummy in toilet paper first. Divide birthday party guests into teams of 2 or 3 and give them 2 rolls of toilet paper. Let teams decide on who will be the mummy and then race to see who can wrap their mummy in toilet paper the quickest using all the paper. Stock up on paper and play this game a few times switching out mummy's.

    Sponge Relay Games
    Divide birthday party guests into 2 teams. Use 4 buckets - place two at the starting line and two 30 or more feet away. Fill the farthest buckets with water. Players take a sponge and run to the far bucket, dip the sponge in the water and then run back to the starting line bucket and squeeze the water into the empty bucket. The first team to fill their bucket wins. (Use larger buckets to hold the water first since a lot of the water will be lost as they race back to fill their bucket.)
