Birthday games for children ages 8 and up: These games are great for flat or other premises. The games have all been tried and tested by the children "Excellent" rated. So here are our TOP games for children’s birthdays, which are ideal for bad weather:

mummy game
Two teammates come together to form a team. It is then decided which team the mummy is in each team and who wraps the mummy.
The goal of this game is to transform your teammates into a mummy using toilet paper as quickly as possible until you really can’t see any skin or clothing.

The team that this task the fastest match, the game won. After a round, the roles are exchanged so that everyone is wrapped up once.

Why because
For this game every child needs a pencil and a sheet of paper is needed. All children sit in a circle at the table.
The first player writes a question on his paper that begins with WHY. e.g .:
"Why is it snowing in winter?"
Then he folds the paper over the sentence and passes it on to the next one in the round. Without seeing the question, he writes any answer under the folded paper, which begins with WEIL. e.g .:
"Because I like to sleep long!"
Now he folds the sheet over his answer and writes the next question underneath.
When there is no more space on the paper, the last one unfolds it and reads the questions and answers aloud.
Funny combinations have emerged!

Smell chairs
Who can smell which chair someone has just sat on? Initiates can!

3 chairs are placed side by side. Who the trick knows, is game leader. He asks a child to leave the room. Another child sits on one of the chairs, but gets up straight away.
When all the preparations have been made, the game leader calls the child back in from outside. This child initially has no idea which chair someone has just been sitting on. It should reveal the secret.
And this is the trick:
If someone was sitting on the first chair, the game leader shouts: "Come!", If the child was sitting on the second chair, he says: "Come in!" If he was sitting on the third chair, he shouts, for example: "Jenny, come in!"
The game continues until someone has understood the trick.
The longer you “smell” on the chairs, the funnier this game is!

You have it, you don’t have it!
All players sit in a circle, one stands in the middle. The player in the middle looks closely at the children in the circle. He then chooses an object that one of the children carries and that the others have to guess, e.g. a button, a scarf, a hair tie. The others shouldn’t notice which item he chose. It is best if the player chooses an inconspicuous object in the circle or one that several children have so that it does not become too easy.
When he chooses an item, he says to a player:
"You have it!" And to another: "You don’t have it!"
The other players try to guess which object the player in the middle of the circle means. Whoever guesses it first is allowed to circle in the next round.

pack suitcase
At least 5 children should participate in this game. The more children there are, the more fun it will be.
The children form a circle and draw who can start first.
The first player now chooses a letter, e.g. the "A" that is put in the suitcase. Each player first puts the objects of his teammates in the suitcase and then his own. Lisa packs an apple, Alexander apple and monkey. Peter says: I pack my suitcase and take with me: apple, monkey and have to come up with a name.
Those who forget to list something are excluded. He is now listed by the others as a "donkey".
The winner is the player who is the only one who is not a donkey.
Whoever wins can choose a new letter.
The game can also be made more difficult by e.g. may only name items of clothing or only food.

All players sit on chairs or on the floor in a circle. Everyone comes up with a useful gift for their neighbors.
Then each player says in the ear of his right neighbor what he has come up with as a gift for him, e.g. a book. He whispers in his left neighbor’s ear what you can do with this gift, for example “so that you can read in bed” or a bicycle that you can use to cycle to school.
At the same time, each teammate must also be careful what his right and left neighbors whisper to him.
When all the players have been given their gift, they tell each other what they understand. Now completely senseless, but very funny combinations have emerged. one may have received a book to cycle to school with, the other a bicycle to drink tea from, the third a booklet to sleep in, etc.

Trip to Jerusalem
With music.
The children determine the number of “travel participants”. You then subtract one position from this number and thus come to the number of chairs that are set up for the first round of the game. Then the game master goes to the CD player and starts it. A song sounds and all the players run around the chairs.
Who gets the last chair?
Suddenly the game manager turns off the music – everyone rushes to the chairs and tries to get a seat. If you are late, you are out of this round. Before you continue, a chair is removed again. Whoever gets the last chair is the winner!

City-Country-River
Each player receives a sheet of paper and a scribe. The paper is placed in front of the players in landscape format. Now it is agreed which categories should be played. Each player then writes the different categories such as city, country, river, plant, first name, animal, profession, etc. on their paper.
The game begins:
A player recites the alphabet by starting with “A” and then counting on. Another player says: "Stop!". For the selected letter, which is called out loud, all players now try to find a term per category. Whoever finishes first says, “Halt!” All players must stop immediately. Now points are distributed:
For each term that no one else has, 10 points, for all others 5 points, for incorrect terms no point.
The player with the most points is the winner.

who am I?
All players sit in a round. The child who starts this game has to leave the room for a short time.
Now the other children have to look for a prominent person from film, television,
Sports. or choose an animal that the teammate has to guess.
The name of the celebrity or animal is noted on a sticky note with a pen.
Now the teammate can step back into the room, sit down and close his eye. The piece of paper with the name is stuck to his forehead and he gets the message: "You are a prominent person!" Or "You are an animal!"
The teammate must now ask his first question of who he might be. All children in the group can answer, but only with “YES” or “NO”. Another child notes the number of NOs that the teammate receives through his questions. If there are 10 no, the round is over and the teammate has not been able to find out who he is.
The player can now remove the piece of paper from his forehead and reveal the secret. Now it’s the turn of the next child. Once all players have had their turn, the number of NOs is compared. The child with the fewest NOs won the game.

Price kicking
A large number of balloons are distributed around the room when the prize is awarded. The amount of balloons depends on the number of children who take part in the game. 3-5 balloons should be planned for each child.
In some of the balloons there is one (or more) pieces of paper with the winning number of the prize. The children now have to crush the balloons according to music. Funny prizes await the winners.

Guess things
Take, for example: clothespins, crayons, erasers, dolls, toothbrushes, rubber rings, pens, bananas, socks, brushes, etc., which you have laid out in a bag beforehand.
The children have to try blindfolded to guess an object that they can put in their hand. Or they have to reach into their pockets and try to find out as many objects as possible.
Nasty things are particularly effective, such as wet sponges, moist soaps and the like. Then it becomes a little scary game ;-))

Stipp and stop!
A totally simple game, which is a lot of fun for the children:
While the children are eating, one is allowed Stipp or Stop say. at Stop no one is allowed to move anymore (everyone remains in their position) and at Stipp the last movement has to be made over and over again (Of course, Stipp is much more popular with children) Until it is said:
“Continue eating!”
Then it is the turn of the next child.
