hello all, am new here so forgive me if topic done to death! am having party for my 4 year old daughter next week. V simple affair in back garden (about 10 children boys and girls) and I will be the entertainer. Need ideas for games. Have thought of pass the parcel, musical statues, musical bumps but what others are there?? My mind has gone blank!! Have a bubble machine from elc but suspect that will only buy me a short amount of time... pls help!! thanks
Having been to several 4 yr old's parties before dd1's I gave party games a miss. There seems to be something about 4 yr olds that means they really struggle to lose - at three they don't care and by five they know the score. In particular the birthday person seems to have a wobbler when they lose at musical whatnot - at one party I was asked to rig the pass the parcel so the birthday person won which I thought Not Cricket.
So for dd1's party we had biscuit decorating - went down a storm with both boys and girls - the girls took theirs home and the boys scoffed them as soon as they were done. Also had dancing and colouring-in. If you have outdoor toys for them to play on they will be so excited doing that they won't want the games - I was at a party a little while ago where the mum got everyone in for games and all the kids groaned as they were having such a great time on her ds' climbing frame and ride-ons.
