We had chosen to keep Bluey's party short meaning I had half an hour which to cram in some games.
We also do not have a large backyard, so we needed something that didn't take up a whole lot of space.
After doing two rounds of pass the parcel we moved on to the eating the donut off the string game. I wasn't sure how the kids would go with this but it was a huge hit. The kids found it both hilarious and frustrating and even once the winner had finished most of them continued to try and finish eating that donut sans hands. I was hoping it would be a classic game that many weren't familiar with, so they would enjoy the "newness" of it whilst also keeping it easy and simple for me. Setting up games isn't something you want to spend too much time on when you have a backyard full of children.
Finally we did "Put the tea bag in the tea cup". Bluey had requested pin the tail on the donkey but failing to find any of those posters, I decided that I would paint up my own poster and to make it easier tie it in with our party theme.
The hardest part of this game was losing the attention of the children who had finished their turn. Thus having to hunt down the winner. It's a great game to finish up with so the kids can venture back into playing at their own choosing.
Do you try to tie in your party games with the theme of the party?
Are you an old fashioned kind of party game person, or do you like to come up with new games?
