Games for Your Last Minute Birthday Celebration

First, whether you’re celebrating a birthday for a child, teenager, or adult, these party games will be a huge hit. Birthday party games make every party a blast! Here are a few of my favorite birthday celebration games. 

Water Balloon Toss

First, fill up water balloons and have teams of two toss them back and forth to each other. Of course, the team that doesn’t drop the balloon wins! Add in some water guns for even more fun at your last minute birthday celebration. Save this game for outside birthday celebrations. 

Piñata Birthday Party Game

Hang a piñata from a tree or ceiling and take turns hitting it with a stick until the candy and toys fall out. Delicious small candies (not chocolate) are great for any season no matter the temperature. Don't worry about a sticky mess!
