us your ideas, we will list them here!
for the best idea of the month
will find a voting form at the foot of the page
the music stops the players must run into a corner (which
has a colour written on it)One player is asked to choose a
piece of paper from out of a tub.This will have a colour written
on it. The players who are in this colour corner are out.
The aim is to be the last person in.

the participants up in to pairs. For each pair they are given
a sheet of newspaper. They must dance of the floor until the
music stops, at which point they are to fold up their newspaper
and both players balance on it. Without touching the floor,
if this does happen both players are out.
*they are allowed to piggy back each other*
The last couple in recieve a prize
013 from Laura
forget to provide a little food for adults who stay and have
probably spent the entire morning/afternoon getting their
child ready for the party and buying a present!
idea 012 from Kerry
each layer of the "parcel" that you are passing
put a piece of folded paper with a task on, i.e. do an impression,
dance to the music being played, sing a nursery ryhme.
Birthday person is ready to open their gifts and the cards
are being read. Everyone invited to the party sits in a circle
and listens for the 3 special words. Pick 3 special words
i.e. "wishing, birthday and happy". Hand a small
wrapped gift to one of the people in the circle. Each time
you hear any of the 3 special words the small wrapped gift
is passed. After all the cards are read, the person left holding
the small wrapped gift gets to keep it.

a small inexpensive container or cup that the winner can use
when they get home. Fill it with jelly beans or sweets. Have
each person at the party guess how many there are in the container.
The person who guesses the closest without going over the
actual amount wins the container and the contents.

for a Party Idea
to the local park and get your friends to bring games, bikes,
roller blades, skate boards etc! It's great fun.
from an Entertainer
if you are useing an entertainer not to distribute, food,
drinks, balloons or noise makers just before or during the
show. The kids can't particate with a mouthful of food and
as for noisemakers it only takes a couple of noisy characters
to ruin the show.
the nose on the face
had great fun with a very similar game recently at my daughters
party. I cut out different face parts from magasines, hair,
ears, eyes etc. Then blindfold had to tack them onto a face
drawn on paper and tacked to the door or wall. We were in
stitches seeing their popstar favourites all mixed up.!!!
006 from Sue in Huddersfield.
fo a party game
of "pin the tail on the donkey" try an "everyone
wins" version with a blank face on the wall and while
blindfolded have the kids tack on facial features (eyes, nose,
ears, hair, mouth etc) Kids enjoy seeing what they've created
as a group (usually something close to a Picasso!!)
005 from Jane
thanks to Jane, I will try that one out.
for a Party
had a Fashion Party.I invited my friends and we had a fashion
show, dance to music and then told ghost stories, played games
and watched movies. It was awsome
