First Birthday Party Games Ideas
Kids absolutely love to dance and that is true at any age. Get all the kids in a big area and turn on some funky, fun music. As the kids dance, explain to them that they have to freeze in place when the music stops. The giggles and fun are sure to follow as your wee ones try to hold their spots in between silly dances.
Although this might sound kind of boring, you will be surprised at how much fun it can be. Simply have an adult stand up in front of the group and make the kids copy everything they do. As the kids do certain things, make them increasingly silly and difficult.
A room without any dangerous corners or breakables is required for this first birthday party game for kids. Get a room that is clear and gather all the kids inside. Release several balloons into the air and have the kids keep them in the air without being allowed to actually catch them. They have to pop them in the air when they come down.
Whatever the theme is for your first birthday party, zero in on something hidable. If you are having a western theme, for example, perhaps you will hide a whole bunch of horseshoes. If you are having a princess theme, perhaps you could hide crowns. Whatever the theme, make a treasure hunt that is related to the theme with prizes for the most found. (Of course have prizes for all).
This is much like the balloon game but a bit more difficult. Get one of the bubble blowers that put out constant streams and have the kids pop them as they come out. Allow no bubbles to hit the ground if possible and work in small groups. If you need to, get several bubble blasters for the party. Bubbles are always a hit at first birthday parties.
