As technology consumes every area of our lives, it’s easy to assume that kids’ tastes have gotten pretty sophisticated. But some things – like parties – just don’t seem to change too much. The party games we played when we were kids are still just as fun and exciting for kids today.
Here are a few of the classics to make your child’s next party unforgettable.
Pin the tail on the donkey
This game, in which blindfolded guests try to stick a paper ‘tail’ onto a poster of a donkey, has been around for ages. But it can be changed to fit any theme – for instance, pin the bee on the flower or pin the rocketship on the moon. Set-up is simple: draw the scene on a piece of poster board. Instead of a pin or tack, use double-sided tape for kids to attach the missing piece.
Drop the clothespin into a bottle
Not too many of us use clothespins anymore, nor are there the glass milk bottles we used to use, so you may have to make a few changes for this game. Try using a coffee can with a hole cut in the plastic lid (bigger for younger kids) to catch the clothespins.
