Wicked* Awesome House Party Games For Kids Aged 7 to 13
*I’m originally from Massachusetts but now live in California. I’m missing my home state and family this Christmas season so for nostalgia’s sake, I threw in a few New England slang words like ‘wicked’ and ‘pissa’. Miss you Mom and Dad!
Speaking of moms and dads, they’re always searching for fun and interactive entertainment ideas for their child’s party right? Of course right.
We got ’em. No, really we do. I swear.
Our games for kids are designed to help make it easy for parents who need yet another memorable, “envy of all their friends” party idea for their child.
Our Operation Birthday Bash Scavenger Hunt is a scavenger hunt designed for a house party and neighborhood. Challenges include taking pictures, finding hidden messages (some with a birthday theme) and obtaining specific items. The teams of kids will end the hunt by completing various projects, some with a birthday theme. As with all of Haley Productions’ games, parents can easily customize this hunt to best suit their needs.
Operation Pirate Party is a treasure hunt game that is part Survivor, part Fear Factor and part Pirates of the Caribbean. The object of the game is for the pirate crews to visit 6 ports of call and complete a pirate-themed or nautical challenge at each. Prizes and awards await them at each port. This party game is designed for kids aged 7 to 12.
The premise of Operation Catch Me If You Can is simple but super fun: the kids are attending a party of any sort. After they finish their first party project, things will take a surprising turn and they’ll be called upon to solve a mystery by putting together and/or finding clues that will lead them to a thief and stolen item. There’s also an optional photo challenge so the kids can capture the fun they’re having during the course of the game.
We like to design house party games that focus on the kids’ collective creativity and imagination. Add to that, they’re great at multi-tasking so all our games give them lots of different things to do from taking pictures, to finding items, to solving riddles, to creating things. We also want to make it easy for parents to put together a terrific party for their kids without spending a lot of time preparing – or a lot of money. We know parents are short on time but are still committed to making their child’s party the best it can be. We think of ourselves as their planning partner for a highly successful and memorable event for their child and his friends.
Oh and while I’m self-indulgently yammering on about our games, we sell corporate team building versions of most of our scavenger hunts (a very affordable and highly effective alternative to hiring a company to professionally facilitate a team building program).
