Boys are rambunctious, and know how to have a lot of fun, which can make having a party a lot of work. One of the best ways to channel that energy is through party games, and there are a number of them that you can do at a birthday party for boys.
Let’s face it, boys love anything that involves throwing, weapons, and loud noises, at least many of them do. One of the best party games you can do with a group of rowdy boys is a balloon dart game. You will need to get a piece of plywood, several balloons, and of course darts. The way to play this with several kids is to choose color balloons for every child. Then, give the kids their darts, and let them know that they get ten points for every one of their colors of balloons that they pop, but minus five points for any other color that they pop.
Water Balloon Fights
What better party game then one that involves water, and fighting? One of the best games for a summer birthday party is a water balloon fight. You just need to let people know that they should wear clothes that can get wet. You can start the game off with a volleyball net and towels, and play some water balloon volleyball. However, when too many of the balloons pop, and kids are getting wet, let everyone have a bucket of balloons, and let them have a full fledged fight.
Of course, if you do not want to bother with filling balloons, just give kids cups, and fill small pools with water so that they can have a water fight that way.
Cowboys and Indians
This is a fun game for little boys, and boys of all ages. You split the two boys into teams, and assign one of them to be cowboys, and one of them to be Indians. Give them a few minutes to dress the part. They can wear feathers, war paint, cowboy hats, etc. Then, give each of them a Polaroid picture of themselves, and they can put them on a string, around their neck. Then, let them run around and hide. In order to win, at the end of a specific time period, whichever team has collected more photos, wins. In order to “kill” a cowboy or Indian, you have to take their picture off their neck. Once someone’s picture is gone, they have to sit out.
One of the best ways to make a birthday party a success is to have a lot of fun games to play at the party. The games mentioned are all great for boys of any ages, from young to old. They can run off all of the sugar they consume, and enjoy a few perks, etc.
