throwing a birthday party for my 7 year old daughter and 3 year old son. i figure we would play pin the tail on the donkey and bingo so the kids can win prizes but does anybody know of some other games the kids could play?

You can play the clothes pin game. You get a milk jug or some kind of bottle like that and have the children who are older blind folded and the younger ones not (they'll have a difficult time no matter what) and have then stand straight up by the jug/bottle and drop the clothes pins in. The one who gets the most in (I would do two age groups) wins a prize. You can also play the balloon popping game. Again I would divide the age groups up, but you blow up the small balloons (about the size of water balloons, maybe bigger for the younger kids) and use ribbon to tie the balloon to their ankles. You then tell them "GO!" and they have to try to pop other kids balloons (without being too pushy and hurting anyone). Whoever ends with their balloon not popped wins. Also Musical Chairs is always a good one. But as an alternate to the chairs depending on the theme of the pater you can call it something like, "Musical Islands", Musical Rocks", "Musical Pumpkins", or "Musical ..."! So instead of using the chairs use colored pieces of paper. Which you can either print out pictures on them of whatever the theme is, have your little ones draw a picture on them, or just leave them blank. Tape them to the floor, but not necessarily in a circle like the chairs would be! That's all I can think of for now! Hope these ideas help you!

the duck game get a few plastic ducks and put numbers on the bottom. fill a container with water and let each child pick a duck. (the way i decided who won was whoever had a number 1 since thats how old my daughter was so maybe you could do whoever gets a 7 or a 3) also we played the lollipop game.i used dum dum pops and marked a few with a dot on the bottom of the stick and let each child pick a lollipop. the children who had dots on the bottom of the sticks won a prize. hope this helps! =)
