Pool noodles aren't just fun in the pool, they are also great for party games. You’ll need:
Do you love bugs and creepy crawlies? If you do, then why not make it part of your birthday party? You can learn so much about the world around you by getting out to explore it!
What you’ll need:
If you are having a fairy party, it’s a wonderful idea to get all your friends to make their own fairy garden. There are lots of different ways you can do this… Here’s an idea:
You’ll need (per party guest):
Give your friends something worthwhile to take home and keep. Herbs are easy to look after and grow so fast.
First, let each guest decorate a terracotta pot using craft paint. Once the paint is dry, fill with potting soil, make a hole with your thumb and place a few seeds of your choice into it. Cover the seeds with more soil, then water it. On an ice-lolly stick, write down the name of the plant and put it in the soil – this will help you remember what’s growing.
Compare different leaves as they grow. Smell them and ask your parents to show you how they are used in cooking.
Grab some play-dough, divide your guests into teams, sit down and have some fun!
Rain | Banana | Octopus | Truck | Balloon | Music | Apple | Cat | Boot | Phone | Camel | Bee | Rectangle | Submarine | Lion | Teepee | King | Flower | Dog | Guitar | Soccer | Light bulb | Door | Train | Fairy
You will need adult supervision for this activity.
Pour about 2.5cm of white vinegar into the bottle. Put a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda onto the tissue and twist it tightly. When you’re ready, gently drop the tissue into the bottle. Put the cork in the bottle and place it (cork down) on the floor. Watch it blast off!
You can make a launch pad with 3 pencils stuck around the bottle at the top for extra lift!
This game is fun and easy to put together. Just fill a tub with water and throw in some coins, bolts, paper clips and other small metal objects. Create a fishing pole with a stick, string and magnet. Your friends can take turns trying to fish items from the pond. You can also give each player a specific amount of time (30 seconds) to pull out as many magnetic items as they can.
Tip: Throw in some non-magnetic items too and guests can guess which ones are magnetic and which ones aren’t.
