Silly Party Games to Crack Up Your Kids Birthday

Silly party games are often the sure fire ingredient to make your child’s birthday party FUN. The following is a list of funny party games where the object of the game is to laugh, Laugh, LAUGH!

Silly Party Games For Kids #1

Commercial Break

This funny party game lets kids use their imagination to come up with commercials for new and unusual uses for everyday objects. Each child chooses a regular household object ( usually from a group of objects you have gathered ahead of time) and creates a commercial for it. To add to the creativity they can’t advertise the object for its actual purpose, but must create an original use for it.

An example from one of my daughter’s party was a little girl that received a spoon for her object. She couldn’t make her commercial about how easy it is to eat soup, but she did make a commercial for a new weapon to sling peas at her little brother. Give the group about 15-20 minutes to come up with and practice their ideas. Let them pair up if they want to. Let each perform a short commercial for the group.

On the start of go the children must rush to get as many skittles as they can into their cups by sucking the skittles onto their straws and running it over to drop in their cup. They may not touch the skittles with anything other than the straws. Give everyone 3 minutes to see who can collect the most. Everyone keeps to keep and eat the skittles they collected.

Anyone who laughs or doesn't say it clearly is eliminated. Those that remain in the game are passed another two marshmallows, which they add to the ones already in their cheeks. They must again say “ I am a chubby bunny”. The game continues like this until a winner is declared or everyone is laughing too much to notice who wins!

This game can be played with regular sized marshmallows or mini ones. The mini marshmallows will make the game last longer.

When the music starts everyone walks around the hula hoops, similarly to musical chairs . When the music stops everyone must rush to get into a hula hoop and hold it up around their waist.

More than one person is allowed in a hula hoop, in fact the funny part of this game is that there is no limit to the number of people allowed in one hula hoop.

Silly Party Games For Kids #13

M&M Madness

This is quite the silliest of party games which envolves dressing up, rolling dice, and trying to eat m&m’s with chopsticks. To play this game you’ll need:

  • a bowl of m&m’s (or smarties, skittles,etc…)
  • chopsticks
  • two dice
  • 3 dress up items ( such as a hat, scarf, and sunglasses)

The children should sit in a circle. In the middle of the circle place the dress up items, bowl of candy and chopsticks. The birthday child starts the game by rolling the dice. If he (or she, of course) rolls doubles then he rushes to put on the dress up items, and then he can eat as many pieces of candy as he can pick up with the chopsticks . The other children keep passing and rolling the dice (one roll per turn) until another set of doubles is rolled.

When the next sets of doubles are rolled the person in the middle must pass the dress up items to the new person and take their place back in the circle. The new person then starts eating the candy. The game continues until the candy is gone. If doubles are coming to fast in the game (too fast to give the candy a chance to be eaten) then consider switching the dice requirements. Maybe they have to roll the birthday child’s age, or just doubles in 2, 3, or 4’s.
