Birthday games for kids are sometimes hard to acquire if you don't have the best imagination. Perhaps, you are having a hard time especially finding birthday games for your son and his friends. You know that boys are raucous and rowdy. That is a start.
Generally, boys like birthday games that are active and fun. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking. If you are having the birthday party in the summer, or when there is warm weather, a water gun fight would be a blast.
You can have the boys split up into teams like the classic cowboys and Indians game. The object of this outdoor birthday game for kids is to get the opposite team as wet as possible.
In your invitations, you will want to tell your guests to bring an extra pair of clothes, especially if the weather isn't warm enough to dry everyone off in time for the cutting of the cake. You can find really good deals at your local dollar store.
Water guns come in all sorts of fun colors and sizes. Outoor birthday games for kids don't have to be extravagant. Boys will even like playing three-legged races.
When playing this game, it is important that boys of similar sizes match up so no injuries occur. You will want to pair up the boys into two teams. Each pair will tie themselves together; one right leg to the other's left leg.
The goal of each pair is to finish the race first. If you want to create more of a challenge for older boys, you can have this be part of an obstacle course. Another fun game is dress-up.
You may think only girls would like to do something like this, but that is not the case. You can have boys dress up and recreate a scene from their favorite pirate movie, for example. If you are going along with a pirate theme, a treasure hunt would be very fun.
One last outdoor birthday games for kids is the spoon race. All you will need for this game are spoons and something to balance on the spoons, like pieces of fruit, a small ball, or an egg.
The object of this game is to have each team pass the spoon with their teeth through the line of your team. The first team to have the spoon reach the other end of the line without hands is the winner.
This game may be too difficult for smaller boys though. Hopefully, these birthday games for kids have given you some ideas for your boy's birthday party.
