Party Games

Birthday Parties and other occasions are a fun time to have games for children and guests. When planning yourself or having Creative LIME take charge of the games; keep in mind that parties usually have a diversity of ages attending. Try to have different levels of games or partner an older children or parent with little ones who may need a little help.  For further games choices please contact Creative LIME or for specialized options. 

Life is more fun if you play games.

  • The Candy Game

Each guest selects a piece of candy from a bowl of multicolored candy like jelly beans.

An adult can develop the categories or work with the children to create categories before the game begins. For example Green = share with us what your favourite part of a Birthday Party is.  

Players can only eat the candy after they have answered the question. 

  • Sponge Water Fight

A safe and fun way for children to play with water. Always do this before the Face Painting :) 

  • Scavenger hunt

Design or purchases small items for the hunt, show the children what the item looks like they are hunting for. Then ready set go! TIP - hind extra if you forget where you have hidden a couple, so everyone gets a turn.

    • Bean Bag Toss

    For tossing, children can use balls, beanie toys, or anything soft enough so that no one gets hurt. Create a target using a bucket or hoop and let the fun begin. 

    • Keep it up - Balloon Volleyball 

    Divide participants into two groups, go over the rules and have so fun! Keep up the balloon from hitting the ground.

    • Three Legged Race

    Divide into pairs and finding your 'sole mate' by looking for someone who has similar patterns on their shoes. Each pair will tie their adjoining legs together. When the signal is given, they will race to a finish line.

    • Spoon Relay

    Try using marshmallows for a fun and easy alternative.  

      • Bingo 

      Purchase bingo cards or create your own unique bingo card.  

      • Guessing Game

      Have a container filled with candy, lego or small toys. Children guess how many items there are in the container. The person with the closest to the actual number wins.  

      • Chalk

      Colourful chalk creations on sidewalks or chalk boards is always fun.

      • Memory

      Place a number of items on a tray. Show the children the tray. The diversity  and age of the children participating and number More time and less items may be necessary for younger age groups.   

      • Duck Duck Goose 

      Classic but everyone loves it!

      Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury. Play is a necessity

      Games give you a chance to excel, and if you’re playing in good company you don’t even mind if you lose because you had the enjoyment of the company during the course of the game.
