Are you doing a theme? Will it be inside or outside? At your home or elsewhere? How many and what age range of kids?

No theme, it will be at home inside, about 9kids all about 6-7 years old.

1 mom liked this

 I think I would do some of the classics like musical chairs, pin the tail, simon says, balloon games etc. Get prizes from the dollar store.

Musical chairs or musical dots is always a fun game for 6 year olds.

Pass the Parcel

A cross between hot potato and musical chairs, Pass the Parcel is the quintessential icebreaker that gives everyone the opportunity to be silly. This homespun version is great for birthday parties, family reunions, or just some after-dinner fun.

What you'll need

  • Large chocolate bar or another prize that everyone can share
  • Black marker
  • Brown grocery bags, at least two per player
  • Radio or CD player

How to play

  1. To prepare, put the prize in a bag and write the following on the bag's front: "Share with everyone after you make someone in the circle laugh without talking or tickling."

  2. Stuff the bag inside another and write a different silly task on the front of the second bag, such as "Sing 'Row Your Boat' while doing jumping jacks" or "Pretend to make and eat a 3-foot-tall peanut butter sandwich." (We have more suggestions here.)

  3. Repeat this stuffing and labeling until you have at least two tasks per player, then pack the finished parcel in an unlabeled grocery bag.

  4. To play, have everyone sit in a circle, then play music while the group passes the parcel.

  5. Stop the music, and whoever is holding the parcel pulls off one bag, reads aloud the task that's revealed, then stands in the middle of the circle and performs that task.

  6. Repeat this process until the final bag has been revealed.

  7. After the final task is performed, everyone can share the prize from the parcel's center.
