Easy Birthday Games for Your Son's Birthday Party

Jun 7, 2008
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.

If you are having the birthday party in the summer, or when there is warm weather, a water gun fight would be a blast. You can have the boys split up into teams like the classic cowboys and Indians game. The object of this birthday game for kids is to get the opposite team as wet as possible. In your invitations, you will want to tell your guests to bring an extra pair of clothes, especially if the weather isn't warm enough to dry everyone off in time for the cutting of the cake. You can find really good deals at your local dollar store. Water guns come in all sorts of fun colors and sizes.

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

Another fun and cheap game is the spoon race. This is one of those birthday games for kids that really tests a strange ability: Passing a spoon from one person to another using only their teeth. You'll also need a small fruit, a ball, an egg, or some other small object to balance on the spoon. Divide the boys into teams. The first team to pass the spoon to the end of the line without using their hands is declared the winner.

Hopefully all these tips for birthday games for kids have given you inspiration. Don't forget to have fun yourself!
