Q: Any ideas for some kids party games?

Children's Day is at the end of the month and the school has decided to have a party for the kids. Ages 6 - 8. We have played lots of different games before. Does anybody have some games that might be a bit different and that the kids can play and won't freak the parents out? Or confuse the kids?

'Woof, woof, what time is it?

 

You are 'wolf', turned with your back toward kids ('sheep'). You're turning around with your eyes closed, while sheep keep repeating: 'What time is it?'. Wolf is acting like 'speaking clock', and calling out different times. For every time wolf calls out, sheep can make one step closer to the wolf.  

When wolf says: 'It's 12 o'clock' (or any other chosen time), sheep must run away, because wolf is permitted to hunt, and run after the sheep.

 

You can alternate 'wolf' and 'sheep' role between kids, after they understand the game.

Play pin the tail on The donkey!! Blind fold the kid turn them around about 5 times and have them try and put the tail on a donkey that you have to make yourself....this game is popular, but I'm not sure you can just go to a store and buy it. You can make it by getting large construction paper and cutting the shape of a donkey. If you can laminate the donkey so it lasts longer that would be excellent...

 

That or you can play a game I just made up in class. Depends how many kids you have but here is a fun game. Have 3 flashcards call 3 kids up. Another kid or two stands behind them. You call the card such as piano or say play piano. Musical instruments work best...because you can say play then quickly say the word. 

 

If that child has that card they duck, but if one of the kids from behind grabs them they are it and takes that childs place. The game continues in this way. It can last awhile as you can keep playing it and playing it endlessly!

Parcel-parcel is a good game.  Wrap a gift up in old newspaper and selotape it up.  Play music and whilst the music is played, pass the parcel around the circle (the children are sat in a circle), and when the music stops, the child that has the parcel undoes a bit of the parcel. 

 

You have stop and start the music until all the wrapping has been taken off the parcel.  Note, you can stop and start the music any time, after one second or ten, or whatever.

Thanks for the responses. Guess what? It's not a party they want. I was informed today that we will be required to do a performance on stage. Let's see.....no rehearsal, no kids except the class I would be teaching at that time which, by the way, I am told is 8.30am Saturday 25th May! Chinese organization at its best. I just posted a blog about last year's Children's Day when I at least had a choir going and 6 weeks to rehearse plus time enough for the kids to get an onstage uniform. Aaaaarrrggghhh!!! Ah well, let's embarrass the kids and the teacher.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
