This game allows children to work off their energy and act silly. Prepare a few signs with command words for actions, like "jump," "clap" or "spin." Also include a few things they can mimic, like "cat," "monster" or "airplane." Choose a fun dance song and start the music, letting the children dance. Hold up a sign; say the word now let them act it out, as the music is on. Once the children get used to playing along mix up the music and command actions. You can do a freeze dance game like this. Tell the children you will play music when it stops they have to act out the command.

This is a fun game to play with children at birthday parties, camps, and scout meetings STEP 1: Print out bingo cards. Have the children walk around the room with the cards and collect signatures from the other kids,
OR...make up the cards beforehand. If you have fewer kids for the allotted space, include words like birthday, gifts, friends.
STEP 2: Play the Bingo Game. Each child writes their name on a small slip of paper and drops it into a paper bag or container.
Now pull out names & call them out.
For extra fun, When a name is called, the child stands up, introduces themselves, and shares something about herself with the group (age, family, teacher, favorite color, book, activity).
Play until someone gets BINGO or play until all the kids have won. For the children that can't read yet, use stickers! Have a theme party?
Use those stickers.
Each child should get the same stickers.
Give each child a sticker to put on the spot of their choice.
(one sticker per spot ).
To play the game hold up a sticker and have the children mark the spot with that sticker on it.
For no hurt feelings clap for each child that gets bingo and play until everyone wins.
The Dot Dabber Dice Game
All you need is …Dot art paint dabbers, a die, coffee filters (any paper would work fine) Newspaper to put coffee filters on. Here’s how to play … line up all the dot dabbers in a row. Have each player take one coffee filter. The youngest player rolls the die first, and then takes the dot dabber that is first in the line and dabs as many dots that are on the die on their coffee filter. When the players turn is over, the next person rolls the die and uses the same dot dabber on their coffee filter (that way EVERYONE gets to use all the colors!) Play continues until all the colors are used …
or your coffee filter is full
It’s great because a wide age range can enjoy the game, there’s really no limit on how many players can play, Plus everyone wins!
Not to mention, you end up with some really cool art!!!
You can turn their artwork into butterflies, or flowers using pipe cleaners. With a few snips of a scissor turn them into fun snowflakes.
Fun outdoor activity.
Divide the kids up into groups or two's. Place a shower cap on one child per group and add whipped cream or shaving cream on top of it. Now have the kids throw cheerios, or Cheetos, on the shower cap. Whichever group catches the most wins. To make it noncompetitive, have two or three children at a time take turns wearing caps and let the others take turns trying to throw Cheetos on it.
Hot potato spelling bee.
You will need: Music player. Ball or something to pass along. Letters of a word you are having everyone spell out. Enough for each child. If it’s a party for someone have the kids spell out their name, age, or the theme of the party. How to play: Have the children sit in a circle. When you start the music, have children pass the ball around. When you stop the music, whoever has the ball gets a letter. The game ends when one child completes the word.
