Wonderful Games for Daughter’s Birthday Party
Not having games at a birthday party is a sin. So make sure that you have some interesting games planned for the children. Here are some amazing games to add on to the fun factor of your girl’s birthday party:
1. Blow the Balloons
Each and everyone is given 2-3 inflated balloons and they are asked to keep these balloons in the air by blowing the air using their mouth. The hands are tied at the back. The kid who manages to keep the balloons longest in the air wins!!!
2. Shake Treat
Pick up any seasonal and prepare a shake using it like mango or banana or strawberry, some fruit that is loved by children. Now tie the hands at the back and ask kids to finish as many glasses of shakes they can in one minute. Make sure you the size of the glasses is small for more fun.
3. Cookie on the Face
Put a cookie on the forehead of every kid and tie their hands. Now using the movement of their face, they will have to bring the cookie close to their mouth so that they can eat it. The person who does this the fastest is the winner.
4. Kidney Beans and Straw
There is a bowl full of kidney beans and there is an empty bowl. The children are required to fill the empty bowl with kidney beans by using a straw and mouth. As they suck the air in the straw, they can pick the bean and put it in the other bowl. Time allotted to each kid is 1 minute.
5. Make a Match
As soon as the guests start to enter, given each one of them a picture. As they move around, they are now required to find the matching picture with the picture they have been given. For instance, the guest is given the picture of Elsa and she has to match it with a related picture.
