How to keep kids entertained at birthday parties is always a stressful affair! To think of birthday games that are fun as well as different can be quite a task. Here are some tips.

Who doesn’t love a game of housie? It is a great way of getting kids to sit down and have fun at the same time. Distribute housie tickets to kids. The tickets have words written on them instead of numbers! The referee has a calling board with words written on them and a packet of calling chips. As the referee calls out words, you have to look for the opposite word on your ticket. For example, if the referee calls out “question”, you look out for “answer”. Those with the word “answer” on their tickets can cross it out. Prizes for different lines and full house can be kept.This is ideal for kids that are 5 years plus.
This is yet another great housie option but for kids that are 7 years plus. Kids are given erasable world maps as housie tickets. Different countries are marked out on different maps. As the referee starts calling out names of countries, you have to look for that country on your map. If it is marked, you can cross it out. The first person who manages to cross out all countries in a continent is the king or queen of that continent. The first person to cross out all on the map is the king or queen of the world! A fun and educative game for a group of kids.
This is like the popular game Twister, but with a difference! The twister mat is actually a large 6 feet by 4 feet world map. Kids can start around the map that is laid out on the floor. The referee starts calling out names of countries and which hand and leg has to be placed on that country. Kids have to start putting their hands and legs on countries that are called out. While they put their right hand on Australia, they may have to put their left leg on China and then the right leg on South America! As they do these acrobatics, kids that lose balance and fall are out of the game. The last person standing is the winner. This is a great game for kids that are 5 years plus.
A popular Japanese game, this is a game of proverbs. Half a proverb is written on one card and the other half is written on another card! This game can be played in various ways. If the group is small, a game of memory can be played. All cards are kept face down and as each person picks 2 cards at a time, you have to remember which card is where and match the proverbs. If the group is a medium sized one, you can play a game of quiz. For very large groups, you can give 1 card to each person and ask kids to start shouting and looking for their pair. The first pair to complete the proverb and run to finish line is the winner! Appropriate for kids that are 7 years plus.
This is a 2 step activity for kids that are 5 years plus. Step 1 – give kids craft material to make folk hand puppets. These are cute and colourful and every child will enjoy making it. Step 2 – Divide the kids in groups and ask them to come up with a unique story around the puppets and enact it. Kids will have a great time enacting folk characters and will keep them entertained for a long time. Pick up ready kits for making these puppets.
