Birthday Party Games
for Children Ages 6-8 Years

Birthday Party Games

Birthday Party Games for Children Ages 6-8 Years, can be planned around the theme of the party.

For some traditional outdoor childrens games why not try these tried and tested games that children have been playing at birthday parties for years.

Remember, you don't need too many, 2-4 games would be fine.

Ideally the Party Games that you choose will get everyone involved and interacting, rather than just entertaining them.

Sack Race.

A great outdoor game for the park or the beach.

You will need: Enough sacks for each child. You can find them at the markets or local produce stores.

These Lot of 6 Woven Plastic Carnival Potato Sacks Race Party are just perfect.

Object of the game: Race to the finish line, while jumping in the sack.


  • Set up a start and finish line.
  • Line the children up along the start line.
  • Give each child a sack.
  • When you shout GO, the children have to jump in their sack to the finish line.
  • The first child to cross the finish line with their egg still on their spoon is the winner.

  • Wheelbarrow Race.

    Definitely an outdoor game with lots of space needed. I love these traditional games children can play outdoors.

    You will need: No Props required for this kids birthday party game.

    Object of the game: To win the race.


  • Prepare a Start Line and a Finish line in an open space. Not too far apart!
  • Pair the children up so that they are with a child of similar size.
  • 1 child places their hands on the ground as if they are to do a hand stand.
  • The second child holds the ankles of the first child up in the air like a wheelbarrow.
  • Once all the children are in position at the start line, shout GO,
  • The children must travel in the wheelbarrow position to the finish line.
  • The first couple across the finish line wins.

  • Birthday Party Games are easy when you know how - Check out some of the other activity games listed below. Have Fun!!

    French Cricket

    A much quicker game than the usual game of cricket, easy to play, find out more.

    Balloon Between the Legs Race Relay Race.

    Another suggestion for great outdoor team birthday party games.

    Obstacle Course

    More great action outdoor Party Games for Children 6-8 Years. This can be done as a team event by creating 2 identical obstacle courses. If you don't have enough people or obstacles, try timing each team or individual as they take it in turns.


    This is a fun team childrens game that can be played indoor

    Banana Bluff.

    Do you need childrens games that can be played indoors, ideally include one like this. It's quieter, so it's good for calming things down before food is served or before they go home. Ideally a minimum number of 6 children is best.

    What's in the Bag? This a great guessing game. Good for indoor parties, and is good for when there are kids of different ages.

    "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"

    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.
