Kids parties are best celebrated with fun party games and free play at a place where children feel at home. Party games make the party come to life and children know that games are part of the party fun. The best party games for children are timeless, classic games that are suitable for boys and girls, all ages, skill levels and are best enjoyed on repeat.
Here are four classic birthday games for kids to play at birthday parties:
1. Pin the Tail on the Donkey
Games like pin the tail on the donkey are easy to play and fun for all ages of children. The game can be played indoors or outdoors and is perfect for any party theme.
2. Hessian Sack Race
The sack race is a simple yet challenging birthday party game for kids of all ages. Younger children love to jump in the sack to the end and back again whilst older children will create inventive ways to race from one end to the other. The sack race game is one of those party games that children love to play again and again.
Our natural fibre hessian sacks are extremely durable and strong. There are two sizes to suit – the large hessian sacks are ideal for children 6 years and up. The small hessian sacks are lighter in weight and size which makes them ideal for children under 6 years of age. The lighter weight, printed contemporary sack race bags are more suitable for younger children.
