Kids Birthday Party Games – Jump Around Like a Pro


A piece of cake on a plate

Here you are going to discover some Kid Birthday Party Games for the little tykes in your life. This collection of games is growing day by day, so be sure to check back often. Or if you come up with a new” Batman” themed game, let me know, and I’ll share it with the others. Enjoy! Mine certainly did.

Guess What’s In The Bag

“Guess What’s in the Bag” is a very popular kid birthday party game that gets the heart pumping. You know, the ones that leave people asking, “What in the heck is that?” Great game for older children too.

Dunk Tank

But there are even more kid birthday party places that offer more mature topics like “Dunk Tank.” This one involves filling a tank with water and whoever pops the bubble or the dart wins a prize. Usually given out at birthday parties, but sometimes given as a free item to players every month. Just check to see what’s available at your local places.

Code Wiz

If you’re looking for party ideas that have a little bit more staying power, “Code Wiz” might be what you’re looking for. For some reason, people seem to think that the word “Wiz” is a code word. In reality, if you’re playing this game with more than two or three kids, it’s probably best to keep it simple. The point is that there are numbers printed on cards, and people will have to guess what those numbers are. So, for maximum fun, try not to get the word “Wiz” into any text that kids will be able to read.

Now, as far as party ideas go, you’re not going to want to leave out streamers and balloons. No kid’s birthday party is complete without them. But, do keep in mind that if you want kids to remember the party for years to come, you may want to have a contest to determine who gets to keep the balloon. Kids always love to win. And who knows, they may even bring their friends.

Some More Kid’s Birthday Party Ideas

Other classic kid party ideas are silly string, air freshener cartridges, kitty litter, and (my personal favorite) silly string with glitter. The next time you have a themed birthday party for kids, try one of these stupid string games. Remember always to start games early. Some of these are more suitable for toddlers. Check out our article on “Silly String” for more information.

Jumping Jacks

Jumping jacks are an absolute favorite at birthday parties. They’re easy to set up and can include as many as three or four players depending on the size of the room. A standard jump is a two-step process where two people each step forward and then touch their hands together in front of them. The first person jumping jacks off with the rope, the second person stepping forward receives the rope, and the last person stepping forward receives the bounce.

Final Thoughts

Another excellent jumping jacking game is known as the injured soldier game. In this game, players alternate jumping up and down as fast as they can. The first person to reach the end of the rope wins. This is a great game to play at a birthday party when the guests are bigger. Remember to start with a large group, this way, more people will be able to participate.
