Jewel Dig Game for a Birthday Party with a Princess Theme
Searching for buried treasure is a lot of fun for kids, especially little girls at a princess party. Weather permitting, create a jewel dig outdoors with the help of a small wading pool partially filled with sand or an ordinary sandbox. An indoor jewel dig can be created using the same small wading pool and items other than sand to help hide the buried treasure. Shredded newsprint, shredded wrapping paper, rice, or even foam peanuts can be used in place of sand. Buy a bag of faux jewels or inexpensive costume jewelry from a local craft store. Mix the jewels in, and blindfold each child to make the game a little more challenging. They will love removing their blindfolds to discover the treasures they have found.
Pass the Crown Game
Hot potato is a classic birthday party game that kids have loved for decades. When hosting a princess party, try a game of pass the crown. Have the kids sit in a large circle, and have them pass around a jeweled crown while playing your child’s favorite princess party music. When the music stops, whoever has the crown must sit out, but each little princess should be made to feel like a winner. As each child is eliminated allow them to choose a goody bag filled with prizes. The last child in the game gets to keep the crown, but everyone is a winner in this fun and exciting birthday party game.
Magic Wand Game for a Birthday Party with a Princess Theme
Magic wands are a must at a birthday party with a princess theme, and magic wand races are fun and exciting. Create two separate lines of kids and a goal across the room or across the lawn. A toy castle or any item with a princess theme makes an ideal goal. Give each team a magic wand, and have each team member subsequently race around that goal and back again. The magic wand is passed to the next player until each team has completed the task. Whichever team finishes first wins the game.
Dress Up Game
Little girls love playing dress up, and beautiful gowns, crowns, jewels, and magic wands are an important part of a birthday celebration with a princess theme. Provide the kids with plenty of time to play a game of dress up using princess costumes and accessories. Take a picture of each child wearing a costume of their choice over their clothes for a nice birthday party memento. They can turn an ordinary game of dress up into a fun and exciting birthday party fashion show.
Find the Jewel to Top the Crown of the Princess
Hide and seek games are a blast at any birthday party, and a birthday party with a princess theme can include a fun game that involves finding a missing jewel. Hide a large faux jewel outdoors or indoors in a designated room or area. Have the kids search for the missing jewel. Whoever finds the jewel wins the game and gets to keep a crown.
Keep in mind that every child should win a prize for participating in each birthday party game. Every child should leave the party feeling like a winner. Provide a goodie bag for each child, and equal prizes for all.
