3rd Birthday Party Activity Ideas
Line up alternate facing chairs, one less than the number of children playing. The players move round the chairs while the music is playing. When the music stops they have to sit down on a free chair, the player without a chair is out, take away one chair each time, repeat until you have 2 players and 1 chair the one to sit down first is the winner.
Cat Tails Game
Get long strips of cloth (any extra you have around) – make them at least one yard long and have the kids put them in the back of their pants, with it just hitting the ground. Then the kids run after each other, trying to step on the tail. When they lose the tail, they are out of the game. The winner is the last one with a tail. A couple rounds of this game should tire them out!
If you have a pull string pinata (so no one could get whacked with the stick) you can take a poster of the themed character & do pin the ______ on the character (i.e. pin the net on SpongeBob, pin the bone on Scooby-Doo, etc). Each child gets a prize for things like the closest, the farthest, the most sideways to the left & to the right.
