These are some of the most fun, cheap and easy party games for kids that we know. You will only need to narrow it down to your favorites. Grapevine offers a wide range of Treasure hunts that can be used combination with other ideas. There’s something for all. There are treasure and games hunts that children will enjoy and puzzles and quizzes for adults. There are also special products to celebrate holidays like Halloween, Christmas Easter, Summer, and Christmas.

Pass the balloon

Balloons aren’t just decorative at parties – they can also be used to play fun games like this.

To get started, you only need to choose a balloon to play with. The children must place the balloon under each other’s chins and then pass it between them using their necks.

Is it really that late Mr Wolf?

Is it the right time Mr Wolf? This classic children’s game adds a little suspense to get everyone excited about the festivities.

Select one child to become Mr Wolf. They are able to stand straight up and face the other children, asking them “What’s your time Mr Wolf?” Then they quickly move towards Mr Wolf. Each question is answered by Mr Wolf’s child.

The goal of the game is for Mr Wolf to be reached before they reply with “dinner!” which signals the chase. Mr Wolf chases the other kids, and the winner is the new Mr Wolf.


Bingo isn’t just for adults. A simple game can test your number skills.

Pre-made sets are available for purchase. This is the quickest and easiest option. Each child has a number of numbers on a separate card. If a number is called out, the child marks the card. The child who has all the numbers in a row wins.

Find your partner

It’s a great way to break the ice and get nervous kids talking to each other.

You can write down the names of famous couples (Mickey & Minnie Mouse and Tom & Jerry, etc.) on stickers and give them to the children. Next, instruct them to search for their “other half” and the winner will be the one who finds them fastest.

Squeal piggy, squeal

Squeal piggy is a great game for all ages.

Place the children in a circle, and choose one child to play. Blindfold the child and place them in the middle of the circle. The child must then sit on the lap of another child and make a pig-squealing sound. The blindfolded child must guess the person they are sitting on and replace them if they cannot.

Egg and spoon race

You don’t have to go to a sporting event to enjoy egg and spoon racing. A large spoon and several eggs are all you need. Next, let the children race with the egg on the spoon. The winner is the child who finishes the race without dropping their egg.

Three-legged race

Three-legged races are a great way to get kids to learn teamwork.

You can pair up the children and tie each leg to the other. You could also use ribbons or strings to do this. Next, have the children race from one point to another. The race will be completed if their legs are not tied.

Use soft material to tie your legs together. Don’t make it too tight. Race on soft ground to avoid them falling over.

Musical chairs

Musical chairs can be a great way for kids to stay active. Play music while you arrange chairs in a circle. As the music plays, get the children to circle their chairs. Once the music stops, they must find a place to sit. Remove one chair for every stoppage of the music. If a child isn’t on a chair at the time that the music stops, he/she is out.

Make two circles with chairs, so that the children have to make a figure 8 around them. The excitement level will increase with the added dimension and possibility of collision.
