I have some games that I find my 9 year old son and his friends simply love and for the past few years when it's nearing his b-day, he always says mommy, are you gonna have all those fun games. I like when you do those. Here is what I do; I have an apple game, where I slice the apples on the side (one slice with a knife) then in some of the apples i insert money - you can wrap the money in a tiny piece of foil, some apples have a dollar, some have $5, whatever you want to put in it, and some apples don't have anything in it. The apples are placed in a large bowl filled with water, each child gets a turn to pick up an apple out of the bowl using only their teeth (be sure to get the apples with the stems on them) which ever apples you pick up is the one you get. If select one with money, it's your, if not, have fun eating your apple. Remember to slice each apple even if you don't place money in it, because some children try to cheat ad look for the slice. You can use a knife or something sharp to insert the money because sometimes it's a liitle difficult getting the money in. Another game I play with them is to get a bag of balloon, in the balloons I place candy in some, money in some, and nothng in some. Then I blow them up, place them in a large container, and each child gets a turn to stick one balloon with a pin (blindfolded) whatever comes out of their balloon is what is you get. Another game if your having the party at home, in your yard you can hide different objects or papers with numbers or whatever on it, whoever finds a number or an object they receive a small prize. I ususaly purchase small little gifts from the dollar store to give as prizes, kids love it.
I hope the party goes well, enjoy. If you use these games plz let me know what the kids thought about them.
