One for the girls. A spa day party. It can be inexpensive, by having one at home.

Allocate points for the various activities and award an appropriate prize to the winning team. Refreshments and the important birthday cake can be enjoyed while each team shares the details of their scavenge.

30th birthday games which are great for the boys - skirmish. Book your local Lazier Skirmish or lazier Tag venue for a few hours. Check with the venue often they have BBQ sites or catering provided at a cost of course.

Memory Lane

30th birthday games that take everyone down memory lane are always popular, and sometimes embarrassing for the birthday person,(which is half the fun!). Pull out your old photos and memorabilia from the birthday persons life. School awards, trophies, stuff that they creates at school etc. Create a slide show of the photos and display their awards and creations on a table. Ask the guest to bring along photos that they have of the birthday person. During the event, have them stick the photos into a scrapbook and write comments in the book as a keep sake.

    "Thank you Katherine, love your site. I used your suggestions for my 4 year olds birthday party last week. 15 Kindergarden kids! My sister does face painting so we did that. I had a pass the parcel using nursery rhyme music I had a candy between each wrapping of paper which worked well. Finally I did some balloon games. They loved it. I especially liked your idea of having a story time at the end of the party, it worked well, my sister read the stories and I organized the parents as they arrived to pick up their kids. My little girl loved her special day and I think it was the games that made it work so well. Planning my sons 7th Birthday for next month now"

    Sandra, Atlanta, USA

    Just a quick note to let you know that I followed your instructions for running party games at my sons birthday party and it went really well. I did 3 games and the most popular was the obstacle course. I had 10 boys ages 6-10 and once they had played with the course I had set out they then started to create their own ideas for obstacles and rearranged the course making it harder and harder. This 1 game kept them entertained for over an hour.
