Kids birthday party games keep the children busy and happy during parties. Here's a giant list of birthday party games for kids to get you started. You're sure to find the right ones for your kids celebration.
How many games should you plan to have? For kids 4-6 games is typically enough but it's a good idea to have a few back-ups on hand just in case the kids buzz through a few of them really fast.
To make sure your games are smooth sailing, make sure to do your advance prep work. But don't worry. It's easy!
What you'll want to do is have all of your supplies prepared and in one spot before the party. It's a smart idea to print out the instructions and have them on hand. There's nothing worse than forgetting how the games are supposed to go!
