#2. Birthday Party Games

Birthday Party Games Printable (** for premium members only)

No birthday party is complete without a few party games, and today’s sites are just what busy parents need to make party planning easier.

About.com: Parenting Teens: Birthday Party Games
Teens may say they just want to “hang out” with their friends, but having a few games up your sleeve will surely come in handy for those moments when the conversation slows. These games, from About.com Parenting Teens guide Denise Witmer, are specifically for teens, and include many clever ideas such as a Duct Tape and Newspaper Fashion Show (“each team creates fashions”), Fill my Bowl Relay Race (how many M&Ms can you carry in a straw?) and Pass the Peanut (with a spoon in your mouth!).

Birthday Party Ideas: Games
“So, you’ve come up with a great theme and now you’ve got to figure out how to keep all those little party goers busy — birthday party games of course!” From the classics (such Pin the Tail on the Donkey and Musical Chairs) to the unique (a Bucket of Pennies Contest or a Chinese Auction), Birthday Party Ideas has a very large collection of games, mostly submitted by readers like you. To add your birthday party idea (or game), click on the Submit Idea button in the top menu.

Family Fun: All Party Games
Disney’s Family Fun site has thirteen pages of party games organized by title or user rating. To view the highest rated games, click on Sort by Rating. These games are both well-liked by parents, and also a bit different from the usual same old, same old. They include games such as The Clairvoyant Crayon (“young magicians wow their audience”), Sardines (“a version of hide and seek”) and Polka-Dot Pinch (“players will see spots before their eyes”).
