Pokemon Party Games and Activities
Usually, we do something like a bounce house to keep all the kids involved and playing at birthday parties but due to a new too-small yard we couldn’t this year. Instead, we set up a bunch of minute to win it style games and a few craft stations to keep the kiddos entertained.
The surprise hit of the party were the Pikachu ears. They all wore them almost the whole party! If you’d like to see how these were made and download the free template, please visit my Pikachu Ear Tutorial page.
Now, kids are as kids are, so all my carefully planned rotations through the stations got completely shot as they wanted to run wild like they’re used to doing when they come over. It was fine. The stations were diversions as they wanted, and everyone still had a blast!
I’ve got a whole other post dedicated to the party games. See it here.
And when they weren’t playing on the playset or the stations, we had a special guest, Kraut, who was happy to get in on all the fun with the kids.
At the end, I presented them all with their “Official Pokemon Trainer” certificates, suitable for framing. I imagine they’ll be highly valued next to diplomas and such over the years. These certificates are available in my shop here.
I made large goodie bags for all the kids and put their names on them so they could drop all their treasures that they got throughout the party in them. It was easier to keep track of everything that way!
I found a few Pokemon-themed pencils and things to put in the bags. Here are some ideas for party favors that the kids liked:
- Pokemon favor value pack (buy it here)
- Pokemon cards (buy it here)
- Pokemon mini figures (buy it here)
- Pokemon flying discs (buy it here)
- Pikachu buttons (buy it here)
So even with an over-the-top Goldilocks, Dragon and Motorcycle birthday party under his belt, Brennan said THIS was his best. birthday. Ever. And since it was about half the effort for me to put on, I’m going to take that as a score. Sometimes less really is more!
