I remember going to a few stay at home birthday parties when I was in primary school. At each party we played party games. I’ve started off our conversation by sharing some of my own favourite party game memories.
I really loved going to Kelly’s birthday ’cause her Mum played party games that I’d never played before. Like Sardines and the Chocolate Game. Playing Sardines was so much more comforting than playing hide and seek. Nothing beats playing the Chocolate Game with a classic block of Dairy Milk, real cutlery and crazy dress ups!
And then there were my own parties that Mum organised. I remember one game that I only know as the Laughing Game. It’s where everyone lies down on the floor and rests your head on another persons tummy. The aim is not to laugh. Sooo tricky when you’re a giggly gurty at the party!
There was another game too. Something to do with finding the right train station. Like a treasure hunt on paper. I think Mum made this up herself and printed them out on stencils (Ah hah, I am that old! Stencils were way before printers, faxes and photocopiers…and the smell!) for us to follow. I’ll have to ask Mum about this one.
I wonder if you share the same party game memories as me? Or whether you would have some other childhood party game favourites…
