4. Passing the Parcel Game

Nothing beats a good old game that has been passed down over the years. This is a game that you most likely played and enjoyed as a child. This game is ideal if you’re looking for indoor games for your child’s birthday party on a rainy day.

Getting ready for the game:

Arrange a small parcel and wrap it with a shimmery sheet.

The rules of the game are as follows:

Instruct the kids to sit in a circle and move a cushion or softball around as the parcel. The aim of the game is to move the parcel on to the person next to you as quickly as possible. Play some music and tell the kids that they must continue passing it as long as it is playing. When the music ends, the kid holding the parcel is out.

Β 5. Mickey Mouse Game

Chance to play your favourite cartoon character Mickey Mouse!

How to play?

Give each child attending the party a simple Mickey Mouse mask.
Enable them to colour the masks with crayons, pencils, or other colouring supplies.

Switch on to the next game once the masks have been decorated.

The next game is all about drama and mimicry. You can play these games in a row or give the kids a snack in between.

The masks that the children have made are to be worn.

After putting on the masks, they must walk across the room and introduce themselves in the same way that Mickey Mouse does before each episode (Ahey, everyone!). (My name is Mickey Mouse.)

Mickey’s voice has a distinct sound and tone that children enjoy imitating.

This game is fun and action-packed, particularly if you want to see budding mimics in action!

Make a bowling lane out of tape that is two feet wide and approximately five feet long. You may also adjust the measurements according to the age of the children who will be attending the party. Arrange the pins or bottles or cans of the same size on one end of the lane you’ve built. On the other hand, place some throwing balls or kid-sized bowling balls. Explain to the children that they will need to roll. The kid that makes the highest number of pins fall, wins the game.

This is a game that never gets boring and that kids of all ages will enjoy. If you’re up for it, adults can play the game as well!

In the shape of a circle, arrange the chairs with the seats facing out. The total number of chairs should be one less than the number of children who will be playing. Play some music and have the kids run in a circle. When the music stops playing, each child must find a seat. The player who does not have a seat is out. Play until only one child is left. Make the game more fun by using as many of the following strategies as possible.

11. Carrying Marbles with a Spoon

This variant of the lemon and spoon game can be a lot more entertaining, and the kids can even get competitive.

Place two tables some distance apart, and on one of the tables, place some bowls filled with marbles. Empty bowls should be on the other table. The marbles must be transferred to the empty bowl on the other end by the children. To do so, they must keep spoons in their mouths while balancing marbles on the spoons as they move from one table to the next. The game is won by the child who moves the most marbles.

12. Prize Walk

This game will bring smiles to the face of kids as from this game maximum kids can get prizes.

Write numbers 1 to 30 on square charts and stick them in a circle on the ground. Make smaller chits with the same numbers and toss them into a basket. Play some music and make the kids walk around the circle in a circle. When the music ends, tell them to stand on a certain number. They would win a bonus if their number is drawn from the basket. The game will go on for an unlimited number of rounds.

13. Escape the Monster

This game can be fun for children over the age of three, and it includes all players until the game is finished.

This game will take up a lot of space. Allow the children to disperse and choose one child to play with the beast. The other children’s goal is to avoid being trapped by the monster. If they are apprehended, they can transform into monsters as well. When a child is captured, he or she will continue to play monster and capture the other children until only one child remains.
