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.

3. Egg and Spoon Race

The egg and spoon race is a simple team relay race party game. Balance eggs on the spoons without dropping the egg all the way to the finish line. Younger children concentrate extremely hard to keep the egg on the spoon. For older children or for parents to play at the party, click it up a notch by adding a blindfold! Children love seeing Mums and Dads look a little bit silly!

Our egg and spoon race is your ideal allergy-friendly birthday party game for kids.
