If you have access to a great outdoor space than being able to host a birthday party outside opens up many possibilities. For one your guests will be able to play many different outdoor party games. Here are some suggestions of party games for hire games to play to get your guests up and moving and having fun.
Water Balloon Drop. Cool off with this classic game that will need teams of 2. Have each team mattress group across in another with a 3 foot gap removing the lines. You will need to have some pre-filled water balloons. Hand one to a member of each team. Each team will drop the balloon between the two to each other, moving back one step backward after each round. As each team moves even farther apart from each other, it will be harder to catch the balloon. The last team with an unchanged balloon wins.
Three Legged Race. This is also a game enjoyed a partner. They will stand side-by-side and the two legs closest thing to each other are tied together. Have the course marked off with a start and finish line. Give a ready, set, go and the teams are off. The first team to cross the finish line wins.
Hula Hoop Fight. This classic toy also makes a fun game. It is also a simple one. You will need to have a hula hoop for each guest or do it in smaller groups. The person that can keep the hula hoop going the longest, without holding the garden soil, is the winner.
Scavenger Hunt. You can either hide objects beforehand or create a list of items to find that may be found outside. Some suggestions for items: acorn, leaf, rock, pinecone, etc. Give each person a bucket or bag to place their items in and a copy of the list. The first to collect everyone on the list wins.
Egg Race. Each person will need a desert spoon and a fresh egg. They will need to place the egg on the desert spoon and then carry it in front of them for the race. Have a clearly marked course, the more turns, the harder it will be to keep the egg on the desert spoon. The winner is the first person to cross the finish line with an unbroken egg.
These five ideas will keep your guests entertained and having a great time. If any of the games be very popular you can play them a second time as well.
