How to Choose Party Games
When planning party games, first consider age of your guests. The limited attention span of 4 year olds will require several very short games where pre-teens might enjoy a much longer and detailed game such as role playing or a movie party. You only need to think of an activity and then give it a slight twist so that it will fit your theme. As examples, a pirate theme could involve games such as finding hidden treasure by following maps. A circus party could involve games such as face decorating, tumbling contests or ring tosses.
