Tug of war
Line the kids up and let the craziness start as they compete to be the strongest side. Tug of war is a classic birthday party game and a great kids activity to keep children active and laughing.
Number of players:
What you need:
- a rope - the longer the better
Split the children and adults evenly on either side of the rope.
It works best with the smaller or weaker players towards the middle and the stronger players at the ends.
Find a spot on the ground to mark as the middle. The objective is for one team to pull the other over the mark on the ground.
To start, someone yells "go" and everyone starts pulling as hard as they can ... until one team crumbles and they're all pulled across the line.
