  • Pen and Paper (for all participants)


  • Make the kids sit in a row or round manner

  • Display the random items on the table or a tray for a few seconds

  • The one who places the loop right gets the soft toy as his/her prize! Fun isn’t it?

3. Musical Chairs: A timeless favorite that guarantees laughter and friendly competition. It's easy to set up and always a hit with the kids.Arrange chairs in a circle and let the children dance around them while the music plays. When the music stops, they scramble to find a vacant chair. The player left standing is eliminated, and a chair is removed for the next round. The game continues until there is only one victorious dancer remaining.

4. Photo Booth: Let their creativity shine with a DIY photo booth. It's a fantastic way for them to capture memories and express themselves. Setting up a DIY photo booth adds an extra touch of magic to any birthday party. Create a designated space in the hall , complete with props such as hats, masks, and costumes. Offer a backdrop and a camera for the children to unleash their creativity, strike poses, and capture lasting memories. This activity not only lets kids express themselves but also gives them cherished keepsakes to hold onto.

5. Sack Race: Bring the classic outdoor game indoors for some hopping fun! It's sure to get the kids moving and laughing.Transforming the traditional outdoor sack race into an indoor activity is simple and fun, suitable even for a banquet hall setting. Organize the children into pairs or small groups, equipping each team with a sack. Line them up and watch as they hop towards the finish line, ensuring their feet remain securely inside the sack. The team that reaches the end first emerges as the triumphant participants of this classic game.

6. Balloon Pop: The Balloon Pop game promises a burst of excitement that will thrill the children. Scatter numerous balloons filled with confetti or small treats throughout the banquet hall. Task the kids with popping as many balloons as possible within a set time limit. The sheer joy of bursting balloons will fill the room with contagious laughter and excitement. Alternatively, you can add a twist by tying balloons to their legs and challenging them to walk without letting the balloons touch the ground. For an extra element of fun, consider setting dares for kids who struggle to keep up with the challenge.

7. Bowling: Set up a makeshift bowling alley with plastic bottles or cups for some friendly competition. It's a great way to ignite their competitive spirit.

8. Pass the Balloon: Keep the energy high with this entertaining game of passing the balloon. It's a simple yet engaging activity that's perfect for keeping everyone involved.

You'll require:

- One inflated balloon (ensure to have some spares)

- Music setup


• Arrange all the kids in a circle formation. Start the game by passing the balloon from one child to another while music plays softly in the background. When the music stops after a few rounds, the child holding the balloon is eliminated. Continue this until only one child remains undefeated, who is declared the winner.

9. Limbo: Limbo is a game that promotes flexibility and ignites the competitive drive in children. Place a limbo stick in the banquet hall and allow the kids to take turns bending backward to pass beneath it without making contact. Lower the stick gradually after each round, prompting participants to demonstrate their limbo prowess. The child who can bend the furthest without toppling over emerges as the victor.

10. Pin the Tail on the Donkey: A timeless classic that never fails to entertain. Blindfolded kids attempt to pin the tail on the donkey, resulting in plenty of giggles and cheer.

With these indoor game ideas, your child's birthday party is sure to be a memorable affair loved by all the guests! Just remember to prepare in advance and have fun celebrating your little one's special day.
