Easy Birthday Games for Your Son's Birthday Party
It can be a real challenge to come up with good birthday games for kids, especially if you've never done anything like that before. Maybe the birthday
is for your son and you need to come up with activities for all his buddies. What do we know about boys? Well, they tend to be rambunctious, so we
know that birthday games for boys should be fun and encourage activity. Here are some ideas to get you going.
Assuming that you're having the birthday party during the summer, the boys will probably love a water gun fight. You can turn it into the classic Indians
and cowboys gunfight by splitting them up into teams. The object of the game? Make the opposing team as wet as possible! When you send out the
invitations, be sure to tell everyone to bring an extra set of clothes. By the way, you can find really good deals on water guns if you check out the dollar
store, and you'll be able to buy them in all sorts of sizes and colors.
When you're thinking of birthday games for kids, they don't have to be costly. Even a three-legged race will be a hit for boys. Just remember that if you
do this game, you need to match the boys up according to size or there could be injuries as a result. Here's how it works: Divide the boys into two
teams. Two boys each will tie themselves to each other (right leg tied to the left leg). Each pair's goal is to finish the race first. If the boys are older and
you want to make it even more challenging, create an obstacle course.
Another idea that boys will enjoy is playing dress-up. Sound insane? Not if you get the boys to dress up as pirates and let them recreate scenes from
their very favorite pirate stories. Better yet, if you plan on having a pirate theme for the birthday party, you could organize a pirate treasure hunt
The spoon race is another fun idea as far as birthday games for kids go. It's easy to set up, too. All you need are spoons and fruits, small balls, eggs,
or some other small objects to balance on the spoon. The objective is to have teams hold the spoon with their teeth, and then pass it down the line.
The team that wins is the one that passes down the spoon to the end of the line without using hands or dropping the object. This may be too much of a
challenge for younger boys, though.
Hopefully all these tips for birthday games for kids have given you inspiration. Don't forget to have fun yourself!
