Children’s birthday games indoors in the apartment

So that the kids are busy and the Children’s birthday is as entertaining as possible, one or the other game should not be missing. You don’t always have the opportunity to celebrate your birthday outdoors or have enough space to romp around in the house. But celebrations and games are also good in a limited space. Below we show you ten fun and popular children’s birthday games that can easily be played indoors in the apartment.

Murder in the dark

For this children’s birthday game, a piece of paper and music is required for each child. "Murder" is on one piece of paper, "detective" is on another and the word "dancer" is on the other pieces of paper. Now all the children draw a note and they can read what role they have. Nobody is allowed to reveal his role to another child. The apartment or room is now darkened somewhat inside and the detective leaves the room. The music plays and the other players dance. The killer dances close to another player and he gently pinches the other player. The pinched cries out loud and he falls to the ground.

The detective rushes into the room and he sees the child lying on the floor. He now begins his questioning of the people who are at the crime scene, what they have to do at the crime scene. Each dancer tells him his alibi and then a second interview begins. Every child tells the same story again. However, the murderer is now telling a different version and the detective needs to recognize who the murderer was. Now the "murder" has been solved and a new round of the game can begin with newly assigned roles.

key King

For this game a chair or pillow and a keychain are required per child. The children form a circle with the chairs or pillows and a child now stands in the middle. It is the key king who holds a keychain in his hand. The key king goes to a child, whom he greets with “Hello”. Then the next player goes to the other children and greets them too. This continues until all the little guests of the birthday party are in a circle on the way and no one is sitting. The key king then drops his keychain and each of the little party guests now sits down on any chair at lightning speed. The child who stands last is the new key king.

Ringlein, Ringlein … you have to hike

A ring (finger ring, key ring or similar) is required for this children’s birthday game. The other players stand or sit in a circle and hold their closed hands in front of them. A child receives the ring, which he holds in the closed hands. Now he goes from one guest of the birthday to the other and puts his closed hands over the child’s hands. He secretly lets the ring fall into the hands of any child. During the game, all the children sing the verse “Ringlein, Ringlein… you have to hike from one place to another. Oh, how beautiful, how beautiful, please don’t let the ring see. ”The child who passed the ring on to the child asks some child where the ring is now. If it guesses, it is your turn and now let the ring wander. If it guesses wrong, it is your turn to whom the ring went to.


Only music is required for this game. All guests of the children’s birthday dance through the apartment to the music. The game master plays the music and when it is stopped, all dancers stand petrified like a statue. When the music continues, the dance continues. To make the game harder, those who are still shaking after stopping the music, i.e. who are not completely petrified, have to leave.

Do you like your place?

All children sit in the circle of chairs and one child stands in the middle of the circle. This goes to the teammate and asks “Do you like your place?”. There are 3 ways to answer this game: Either not at all and all players now switch places.

The child standing in the middle is now trying to get a chair. If the question is answered with “quite good”, only the neighbors who sit to the left and right of the interviewed child change places and now the player standing in the middle tries to get a chair. If the child answers with “very good”, all players remain seated. Now the child standing in the middle tries to get a seat. If the child fails to get a seat or the children have to stay seated, the children’s birthday game continues. If the child has got hold of a chair, it is the turn of the child without a chair and it asks the next player.
