Three Classic Games You Can Play at Your Child’s Birthday Party

Kids can be pretty difficult to figure out. It seems like most of the time they’re either bored out of their skulls or excited out of their minds. If you’re a parent, then you probably know how exhausting it is trying to entertain them when they’re bored or keep them calm when they’re overly excited. And for some parents, birthday parties can be the WORST. Of course, you want your child to have the best time during their party, but entertaining all of those kids can (let’s be honest) make you want to pull your hair out. Fortunately, as one of the leading outdoor party rental companies in Bucks County, PA, and other local areas, we came up with five fun games you can play at your child’s birthday party:

1. Tug of War – No matter how young or old, everyone has a good time playing tug of war. All you need is a strong rope and a bunch of kids. Split them into two even teams and tell them when to start. Mark a point for the center, and the team that pulls the other one past the center point first wins.

2. Hide and Seek – This is another classic game with minimal supplies needed. In fact, this game has been around since the beginning of time (or at least it seems that way). Make one child the seeker. They’ll close their eyes and count to 100 while the other kids find hiding places. The first one found will be the next seeker and the last one found is the winner.

3. Capture the Flag – This game is perfect for a large group of kids with some competitive spirit. To play: split the children into two teams and give each team a base and a flag. Then, they must try to steal the other team’s flag and bring it back to their own base without getting caught. If they’re in the other team’s territory and they get tagged, they must go to that team’s jail. One of their team members can free them without getting caught themselves. The first team to capture the flag and bring it back to their own base wins.

Those are three classic games to play at your child’s birthday party if you want them to have a fantastic time.
