Party Games & Activities
By the age of eight, children will be full of energy and eager to participate in traditional party games. They’ll like following rules and understanding the ideas of “winning” and “losing,” and they’ll appreciate participating in team games as well.
While they may not be upset at the prospect of losing, it’s still a good idea to have some lesser prizes on hand to distribute to everyone so that no one feels left out if they don’t win.
Bull’s eye balloon poppers
Stick 10 to 12 balloons together in a circle with the smallest in the center and get the children to pop them by flinging colored candy sticks from a distance. Whoever gets the middle one multiple times is the winner.
Make cupcake terrariums with frostings of greens and blues and other different colors. You can even make marzipan shavings for them to use as fillers in their terrariums.
Also known as Revolving Doors or Marching to Jerusalem, this high-energy game needs some music and a bunch of chairs.
Party Foods and Drink Ideas
Your guests will be having so much fun that it’s unlikely you’ll get them to sit down and eat for long, so small, bite-sized food is your friend here!
If you’re worried about making sure there’s enough food to go around, consider filling up a cardboard meal box for each child. That way, you know no one will miss out, and they can always take it home if they’re having too much fun for food.
Party foods like mini hot dogs, mini pizzas, and finger sandwiches will go down well, and make sure to include some carrot, cucumber, or pepper sticks too as a healthy option.
Choose sparkling water with real fruit added to give kids a healthy drink that still seems like a party delight. If you must give them fizzy drinks, do it after the meal so that they are not too sugared to eat anything else. Fruit juices and smoothies are likewise fine in moderation, as long as they’re well-diluted.
