Children Party Games
For Children Ages 6-8 Years

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

The range of birthday party themes open to the 6-8 year old will be wide and varied, so consult with your child before making any plans.

I was surprised at how quickly my son moved away from Superheros at 6 year of age, so check with your child first.

Choose a theme that your child is currently interested in. Consider the books and movies that they are reading and watching. I've listed a few ideas below, the list is endless:

  • Alphabet Party
  • Backyard Camp Out
  • Cooking - Pizza and Pancakes
  • Egyptian
  • Jewelery
  • Jungle Party
  • Magic Show
  • Monsters Party
  • Numbers Party
  • Pirates
  • Pool Party
  • Science
  • Slumber Party
  • Space Party
  • Superhero
  • Treasure Hunt
  • Wild West Party
  • Witches and Wizards (Harry Potter)

    Now that you have your theme, you need to work some children party games around it. Remember, you don't need too many, 2-4 games would be fine.

    Ideally Children Party Games for Ages 6-8 Years will get everyone involved and interacting rather than just entertaining them. Choose the best games to suit your party.

    Convert traditional birthday games so that they work with your theme. For example, "Pin The Donkey Tail" can be changed to become Pin The Flag Pirate Treasure Map and "What's the time Mr Wolf?" can become "What's the time Captain Hook?" for a Pirate Party. You will need to decide whether the party, and therefore the games will be indoor party games or outdoor Party Games. Weather permitting, outdoors is preferable for birthday party games for children aged between 6-8 years. This is especially true when there are many guests, and if you don't want your house wrecked.

    An easy option is to use Free Printable Coloring Pages, especially for indoors, and also use some Printable Kids Birthday Games. They are downloaded to you instantly, making them perfect for last minute games ideas.

    When choosing Children Party Games for the 6-8 Year olds, consider some of these traditional children's games as suggested for the Kids Birthday Party Games for ages 3-5 years, they can work for the older children too.

    Here are some more traditional Children Party Games for Ages 6-8 Years.

    "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.
