Mermaid Games for Parties
Planning the perfect mermaid party isn’t hard with fun snacks and unique party ideas. But if you really want to take your child’s birthday party to the next level mermaid birthday party games are a must.
So, let’s get started thinking about the mermaid party games you could plan for your next mermaid-themed birthday party!
This fun party activity gets everyone up and moving. Plus it’s super easy to set up! All you need is some hula hoops, a die, and tropical music. Similar to the classic musical chairs game, party guests move around the area while the music is playing. When the music stops, everyone will choose a numbered hula hoop to stand in. Roll the die and everyone in the matching number are out. Keep playing until there is only one person left. The winner is the last person standing!
Using colorful crepe paper tied to poles, mermaids will swim under the seaweed. The rules are the same as traditional limbo. Each round the poles are lowered, making the game more challenging. Whoever can still fit under when the last pole is in place wins!
Pass the Treasure
Similar to a Christmas gift wrapping game, treasure is wrapped in layers of colorful wrapping paper and bubble wrap. Pass the treasure around the circle until the music stops. Who ever is holding the package unwraps one layer of the treasure.
Participants can either keep any small trinkets that are unwrapped in the layers. The party game ends when the treasure is unwrapped. The lucky mermaid that unwraps the last layer gets the prize!
Burst the Bubble
This is another great active game that can be set up in seconds and played with all ages. All you need for this game is two sets of bubbles for each team. Keeping the opposite team from popping all your team’s bubbles while popping their bubbles is the goal. The team with bubbles left at the end of the game wins!
Using rolls of crepe paper (shades of blue, purple and green streamers work best for a mermaid theme) party guests will decorate their “ocean” with “seaweed” to make a fun maze that they can swim through.
Participants can go to treasure chests and pick out rewards like candy, pearl necklaces, jewels, mermaid crafts, or sequin wands.
Even more rewarding will be the empty stomachs ready for mermaid party food and tasty cupcakes for dessert!
