Party game ideas for little boys
1- Bicycle/Tricycle Obstacle Course
This is one of the only party game ideas for little boys on our list that really works best outdoors, unless you happen to have a large basement. For boys aged two and up, a great game idea is to set up an obstacle course for bicycles or tricycles. Instruct guests to bring their own wheels. Use traffic cones and other items you have around your place as obstacles. Let the boys take some time to create flags, streamers, or other decorations for their bikes.
2- Toilet Paper Mummy Wrap
Divide boys into two teams and give each team a roll of toilet paper. Choose one “mummy” for each team then have each team race to wrap their mummy. The first team to use up their roll of toilet paper is the winner.
3- Bubble Wrap Relays
Buy a large roll of bubble wrap. Unroll and lay out a section then have the boys take turns running across it barefoot. The object is to not pop any bubbles.
4- Balloon Pop Game
Here’s a game that is great for rowdy little boys! Write challenges on slips of paper then put each slip into a balloon before blowing up the balloon. Challenges can be silly physical feats like licking your nose or elbow or saying “pterodactyl” without smiling or they can be age-appropriate trivia questions. Play music and while the music is going, the boys bop the balloon in the air. When the music stops, the last to touch the balloon pops it then completes the challenge. Continue until all balloons are popped or the boys are ready for the next game.
5- Fishing Pond
Use a dowel rod and string to make a fishing rod. Tie a wooden or plastic “hook” or peg to the end of the string. Next tie a string between two trees or poles at head high level of your tallest party guest. Throw a sheet over the string — this will be the pond. On the other side of the pond have a helper sit out of sight with a number of small toys or treats. As party guests take turns “fishing,” the helper will attach a gift to the fishing rod’s hook or peg.
6- Like a Dinosaur
If you have rowdy little boys that are full of energy, this game is great for exerting some of that energy and wearing them down. Instruct the boys to do actions “like a dinosaur” such as growling like a dinosaur, stomping like a dinosaur, roaring like a dinosaur, and so on. When you want the game to start winding down, come up with calmer and quieter things to do like a dinosaur like sleeping, sitting, or whispering. Try a few of these fun party game ideas for little boys at your little man’s party and be ready to enjoy the fun along with the young men. Need more great party ideas? Check out our Pinterest board!
