Im planning a party for my 3 years old DS. Im expecting around 10 kids of his age and a few extra younger siblings mostly.
We will have a jungle theme, so I’ll ask children to take their fav stuffed animal to do a zoo. I will do some basic face painting myself.
We will have a little walk in “a jungle” too. I have planned a pull piñata.
But what other games would 3 years old play? Pass-the-parcel?

What else?
Would it be a good idea to get the train set out?

Thanks

We did pass the parcel and musical bumps. We also had the normal toys out. Seemed to be enough. My brother did loads of games including the above and pass the hat, musical chairs and a couple more, and it all felt too much to me.

Keep it simple for your sanity, especially with the younger siblings who probably won't get the idea of a game at all

Thank you! what is musical bumps?

Action songs and stuff go really well for this age group. Things like "We're going on a bear hunt" and "Down in the Jungle" spring to mind...

Sleeping lions should be within their capabilities!

If you've got the room(s), you could try a treasure hunt? Hide gold chocolate coins around the place and give the children paper bags (just those stripey ones you get penny sweets in) and send them off around the house/room. Or garden. It doesn't have to be sweets, could be anything small and bright.

I don't know what sleeping bunnies is - but in sleeping lions you have to get the children to lie still on the floor and pretend to sleep. If they move they are out. One of my favourites!
