If you have access to a great yard than being able to host a birthday celebration outside opens up many possibilities. For one your guests will be able to play many different outdoor party games. Here are some suggestions of party games for hire games to play to get your guests up and moving and having fun.
Water Balloon Chuck. Cool off with this classic game that will require teams of 2. Have each team get in line across collected from one of another with a 3 foot distance distancing the lines. You will need to have some pre-filled water balloons. Hand one to a member of each team. Each team will chuck the balloon forward and backward together, moving back one step backward after each round. As each team moves a greater distance apart from each other, it will be harder to catch the balloon. The last team with an complete balloon wins.
Three Legged Race. This is also a game had fun with somebody. They will stand hand and hand and the two legs best together are tied together. Have the course marked off with a start and finish line. Give a ready, set, go and the teams are off. The first team to cross the final line wins.
Hula Baskeball hoop Match. This classic toy also makes a fun game. It is also a simple one. You will need to have a hula baskeball hoop for each guest or do it in smaller groups. The person that can keep the hula baskeball hoop going the best, without pressing the earth, is the winner.
Scavenger Hunt. You can either hide objects beforehand or create a list of items to find that can be found outside. Some ideas for items: acorn, leaf, rock, pinecone, etc. Give each person a bucket or bag to place their items in and a copy of the list. The first to get everyone on the list wins.
Ovum Race. Each person will need a place and a fresh ovum. They will need to place the ovum on the place and then carry it in front of them for the race. Have a clearly marked course, the more turns, the harder it will be to keep the ovum on the place. The winner is the first person to cross the final line with an unbroken ovum.
These five ideas will keep your guests entertained and having a great time. If any of the games show to be very popular you can play them a second time as well.
