Indoor Party Games

Unless you live in an area with guaranteed sunshine, you need to have a goodSTOCK  of indoor party games ready for your child's birthday party! Of course you don't need to confine them to a birthday party: many of these games can also be played in the classroom or in group activities. For most of the games below you will need to do some preparation and gather together some "equipment".

Remember, when throwing a party for younger children, it is always useful to have as many adult helpers as you can - but for one person to be in charge of the games. Always have more games than you think you will need!

Balloon games are always fun, and this one is a classic birthday party game. Be aware that some children are scared of popping balloons, so it is a good idea to have a quiet activity that they can “help” you with without feeling embarrassed in front of their friends.

Blind Man's Bluff

This is a very old favourite, thought to date back to Tudor times at least! It was originally known as Blind Man's Buff. There is also a traditional Chinese version known as "Blind Man" or "Chicken".
