One of the most common games to be played in kids’ birthday parties is musical chairs. This game involves number of kids revolving around chairs arranged in a circle. When the music stops, all kids occupy chairs except one. That child is out from the game and one chair is further reduced.
Pass the parcel
One of the traditional birthday games is pass the parcel. Any object usually a cushion is made parcel and children sit in a circle. When music stops, the child holding the parcel is penalised and out from the game.
This is a simple and interesting game with no limit on the number of players. Let the children dance and do whatever they want in a room and start the music. When music stops everyone needs to freeze. The kid who moves will be out.
Potato sack relay
This is an outdoor game and you need to make two to three teams. You can place some markers or other kids on one side and let kids get into their potato sack and reach that place. They need to come back to their team after reaching the marker. After returning, the other set of kids will hop in and the team which return first wins.
This is an interesting game which can be placed outdoors as well as indoors. You can hide some toys or clothes in your yard or room and tell the children to seek them. When the last toy is found, the game ends.
