Cowboy Party Games Page 2
I have so many cowboy party games they wouldn't fit on one page. So let the party continue with more cowboy themed games for your kids cowboy birthday party.
Snakes on the LOOSE!
SNAKES ON THE LOOSE!! The cowboys/girls must round up all the snakes. They can’t pick them up with their hands. They must use sticks (or batons) to snatch them up and rush them over to their teams snake barrel as fast as they can. You can play this cowboy themed party game as one big group for a non competitive version or in teams. To play just purchase some rubber snakes (check your local dollar store or see the deal below) and some toy batons from the dollar store. Spread the snakes across the play area and use a laundry basket or shoe box as the snake barrel. This game is always a blast.
Catch the Bandit
One of my most popular cowboy party games is “Catch the Bandit”. It is a funtastic twist on the ol’ party piñata. The game requires an adult to take the part of “the bandit”. Why an adult? Simply because it triples the fun for children to get to chase after a “grown up”.
To play each guest must get armed with a lasso (hula hoops) or squirt guns. The little cowboys/girls must chase the bandit and try and lasso him with their hoops (or squirt him). When the Bandit is lassoed he must freeze and pay the fine to be released. The fine is candy that the bandit throws out for all the cowboys/girls. The game continues until the bandit runs out of candy.

As far as cowboy party games go, this one is a sure-fire winner. While the cowboy music is playing the cowboys/girls must try to keep all the balloons up in the air. When the music stops they all grab one. A guest name is drawn out of a bag and that guest must then pop their balloon and complete the challenge inside to win a small prize. Challenges can be simple or silly things like do the chicken dance, try to lick your elbow, pat your head and rub your tummy at the same time, sing your favorite song, etc.. The music starts again and the game continues until every guest has won a prize.
To play you’ll need twice as many balloons as guests. Start the game with one balloon for each guest and add one after each round. This is to ensure that the person whose name is called always has a balloon. This is a great non competitive game where everyone gets to participate.
Create aluminum foil balls with small prizes or candy in the middle. Paint the balls with gold paint to create the gold nuggets. Hide them all over the place and have guest search for gold.
Gold Rush II
Fill a kiddie pool with sand and bury small prizes and wrapped candy in it. Let the guest use sand sifters or strainers to sift through the sand and find the “gold”.
Lasso the bull
Have guests use a hula hoop and take turns trying to “lasso” the bull with it. The bull can be anything from a large stuffed animal to a beach ball.
Cowboy Birthday Party Icebreaker Activities
I always recommend starting your parties with an icebreaker activity. This gives the guest something to do when they first arrive at the party and are awaiting the others. It also gets them in the spirit for the rest of the cowboy party games. Here are a few ideas for some fun cowboy birthday party activities.
Before the western party games have guest create their own cowboy/girl vest out of a brown paper bag. Cut a hole for the head and arms and cut open the front of the bag to create the vest. You can even add fringe to the bottom for added fun. Let the guests decorate them with markers, stickers, and decals.
Hope you found some great western party games for your cowboy themed party. I am always looking for new ideas so please let me know of any western party games I should add to the list. Have a blast at the party!
