We have a few solutions for you! The first thing you need is a wide open space. Clear a space of toys and hazards in your basement, play room or rec room. If you don't have the luxury of a designated play space, clear out your family room or living area. Slide furniture to the outer perimeter of the room, and remove items that are potentially breakable.
Best Active Party Games
Duck, Duck, Goose: We've all played this one before. Have the kids sit and a circle on a carpeted floor or area with a large mat. One child is "it" and he goes around tapping each child on the shoulder saying "duck"until he comes to the next child he wants to be "it." When he taps that child's should he shouts "goose!" and the chase begins. The first child to make it back to the open seat, sits down and the child left stand repeats "duck, duck, goose!"
Big Foot Race: This relay race can be a lot of fun. Seal shoebox lids to the box itself and then cut a hole in the top for the kids' feet. Then have them complete a lap and switch off with the next person on their team. If you don't have enough shoeboxes to go around, ask parents to bring one with them to the party. Use the boxes plain, or decorate them to fit the party theme.
Limbo: How low can you go? If you don't have an actual limbo stick, you can use a simple broom handle, and two kids or two adults can lower the bar for each round. Remember, the trick is to go under the broom handle without touching or falling on the floor.
