A child's birthday party should be one of the most fun events of the year, for the birthday child, the guests
and even for the hosts. The three keys to a successful child's birthday party is planning, more planning, and
even more planning. Kid's birthday party games are important ingredients of every party and must be thought
out and arranged in advance. Luckily, there is no shortage of fun and interesting games to keep kids busy and
happy, so it is not difficult to come up with more than enough ideas.
It is important to remember that children have a far shorter attention span (长度) than adults. For that
reason, the host should not expect that one or two activities will keep the guests entertained for a long period
of time. Plan a lot of short, fun games that will satisfy their needs. Make sure that the games are age
appropriate:"duck duck goose" will keep little ones happy for a while, but certainly will not work for pre-teens.
"Scavenger or treasure hunts" are great kid's birthday party games for any age-just make sure that it's neither
too difficult nor too simple．
Be sure to have enough ideas in mind so that it is possible to "throw away" an activity that is not going well.
Kid's birthday party games should be simple and fun. If a game is started and no one seems to be having any
fun, simply end that activity and start another. Kids like changes and will not mind a bit. If the party is held
indoors, it is a good idea to clear a room of breakables and make that room the game headquarters. For outdoor
parties, make sure that the play area is free from potential dangers and that the games do not involve tree
climbing or other activities that are likely to cause injury.
Finally, remember to have prizes and treats on hand to reward the players. Prizes do not need to be large or
expensive. Kid's birthday party games are about teamwork, not rewards. Be sure to have prizes not only for
the winners of the games, but for every child in attendance, so that each child goes home with some fun
memento of the party and the time spent with friends.
