Obstacle Course

More great action outdoor Birthday Party Games for Children 6-8 Years. This obstacle course 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 time each individual as they take it in turns.

You will need: A variety of obstacles. (For example, a plank of wood to walk along, Hula Hoop to climb through, old tyres to step through, a sheet to crawl under), a stop watch if necessary.

Object of the game: First team to all get their players to the finish line. Alternatively fastest team/individual.


  • Set up an obstacle course with a start and finish line.
  • Line the children up in their teams, along the start line.
  • When you shout GO, the child at the front of the line must run through the obstacle course, to the finish line.
  • When they reach the finish line they shout NEXT and the next child in the line starts to run through the obstacle course.
  • The first team to have all their team members at the finish line are the winners.

  • Blongo Ball

    The Blongo Ball Complete Game Set is appropriate for use both outdoors and indoors, BlongoBall combines elements from bocce, horseshoes, croquet, and other lawn sports, but adds a unique twist: rather than throwing a ball or a shoe, you throw a BlongoBall, which is technically two small spheres connected by a thin stretch of rope.

    The goal is to wrap your BlongoBall around one of the horizontal bars of the BlonGoal, which stands 25 feet away (or less if kids are playing). Players score one, two, or three points with a successful throw, depending on which bar the BlongoBall grabs. And the game ends when one person or team reaches 21 points exactly. You can even add a bit of defensive strategy to the game by trying to knock your opponent's BlongoBalls off the bars.


    These party games children like to play, are good for indoor parties.

    You will need: A toilet roll for each team

    Object of the game: First team to completely cover their chosen team member in toilet roll so that they look like a Mummie.


  • Divide the children into teams of 3.
  • Give each team a toilet roll.
  • Ask the team to select a Mummie.
  • When you shout GO, the two children have to wrap their Mummie up in the toilet roll so that they are completely covered.
  • The first team to completely cover their chosen team member in toilet roll so that they look like a Mummie, wins.
  • Repeat, and select a new child to be the Mummie.
  • Alternatively, you can set a time of say 2 minutes and see which team has most of the body covered.

    "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.
