Kids Party Games (For the classroom, too!)
Kids birthday parties can take some serious thought and work to plan. You are typically in charge of a pretty sizable group of kids, and things can go south VERY quickly if you can’t keep them busy! The more guests you have, the greater the potential for chaos. The best solution to prevent any boredom is to pack the party’s schedule full of engaging kid party games.
Our last birthday party for my daughter’s 10th birthday went really well, and it’s all thanks to extensive planning. The full schedule left no room for the kids to get into trouble or come up with their own ideas of how to stay busy. In an effort to keep things fun, I researched for weeks before to find the best kid party games and ideas of how we could get creative with our time. Since I already did the research, I wanted to share my findings and the best kid party games with all of you!
