Parties for kids are great and fun events to be at. However, not all kid parties are done outdoors and guaranteed with sunshine and room to run around and play. Thus, it is also important to have a good stock of indoor party games for the birthday celebrant and the guests for a fun birthday party!
Here are a few fun games you can have for your indoor party as well as in any group activities or classroom activities involving children. There is a general rule to follow though. Always have more games available, props and all that the number you think you might need.

Balloons are considered as staple in parties. Popping them is noisy, frantic and offers lots of fun. It is also a simple game that can be done without having to worry about too many accessories and props. With a few set of chairs that you already have prepared for the party and tons of balloons to pop, it would really be an entertaining game to do indoors. One thing to remember though is to have enough balloons available as give-away at the end of the party.
Boys and girls alike would love to have some action and their favorite superhero included in the games that they play during a birthday party. Batman is indeed one of those characters every little boy and girl would love to have. Party game ideas might include mimicking Batman’s moves or playing dress-up. Have several colored papers, tapes and other accessories that the kids may need to create their own batman costumes or masks. Be sure to have an adult for each group or child available to supervise them most especially with scissors involved. You can even have a Batman painting contest to be able to allow the kids to enjoy while the adults dine or have a peace and quiet time during the party.
Music is a very essential necessity for parties and there are a lot of games and activities that can be done with music. These include musical chairs and stop dance – both very entertaining games that will surely up the vibe in any party. Parents can also grab the chance to take videos of their kids while they strut their dancing skills on the dance floor.
You do not have to provide accessories to be able to pull-off this party intermission. Popsicle stick, playing cards, building blocks, boxes and even pillows will do. You can also ask the kids to build a tall building out or uncooked pasta noodles and marshmallows. Bigger kids would definitely enjoy some competition and their creativity and resourcefulness will definitely tested with this game.
Children of all ages love finding hidden treats and objects – especially if there is a prize at stake. Put some clues on slips of paper, on your party decorations, inside balloons and other accessories in your party venue. Place the first clues in areas that can be easily noticed and make the next ones a little bit harder to find. The prize could actually be the treasure that they are looking for. Small treats like candies, toys and the like are more than enough to keep the kids excited and enthusiastic to find the treasure.
Entertaining kids in an indoor party does not need to be complicated. Simple fun ideas can bring a lot of fun for any party, whether it is hosted inside or out in the sun.
