By the birthday of the child, almost all mothersprepare in advance: they bake a beautiful and tasty cake, make salads, decorate the room with posters, balls, etc. But often women forget that a single table is not always enough for the fun of children. And if you do not prepare games, competitions, guests on the holiday can just get bored. Therefore, parents should also think over the scenario of the party, taking into account the age, the interests of the kids.
Entertaining very young children: two to four years
At this age, children do not yet understand the meaningmany words, things. And they are unlikely to remember the holiday as such. But this does not mean that such a day should pass in the circle of bored adults. Invite the same kids and record everything on the video, take a photo. In the future, when the child turns 18, you can present a disk or an album with photos. To revise the funny moments when you were a small and agile karapuz, adults and formed personalities will be interesting. To begin with, you need to decide how many people will be. Keep in mind that kids are unlikely to sit at the table without adults. A small child will begin to be capricious, if there is no mother nearby. And do not invite too many people, since a crowd of unfamiliar uncles and aunts can scare both the birthday boy and his guests. The dress code is the following, which you should pay attention to. You can invite parents to dress children in fairytale and cartoon characters. If everyone comes in ordinary costumes, buy special hats, pipes, masks, ears and other accessories that will help cheer kids. Choosing games for the youngest, you must understand that the children at this age are awkward. Plus, they can burst into tears over trifles, if they do not like something, they are pushed or offended. Therefore, make up the most simple tasks, in which the guests will take part collectively.
For this contest you will need balls (2 pcs) andskittles. So, divide the children into two teams, ask them to become a line in a line. The very first participant clamps the ball between his legs and starts walking with him to the pivot, which should be placed two meters away from him. After he bypasses it, the ball is transferred to the second player. And so on, until everyone runs. At the same time, parents should support children by the hand, so that they do not accidentally fall.
As in the previous case, you divide the playerschildren on two teams. Participants must jump a certain distance at a speed. The winning team is awarded with sweets, the losers are also encouraged by sweets (fruits, cakes).
One of the adults starts blowing bubbles. The task of children is to catch them and to burst. It will not be bad if you invite a specialist who knows how to make funny figures. At home, you can get by with a tube and a solution made from soap, shampoos and water.
- Cheerful donkey
Draw a large animal on the big paper (donkey,dog, a ball with a dot in the middle - it all depends on your skills and abilities), make a tail with a pin. Baby tie the eyes, give the hand in this detail and indicate where to move it so that it hooks it.
Holiday for preschoolers: how to arrange a party
As in the previous case, the room followsdecorate brightly, unusually. Be sure to buy balls, bake or buy cake in the shape of a small animal. On the holiday you can invite both adults and young children. But remember that kids should sit at a separate table. Everyone should have their own plate, fork, cup. In order not to worry about the dishes, buy a one-off (plastic or paper). Plus, after the holidays you do not have to wash everything by hand. At this age, kids like to play mobile games, compete. Therefore, choose for children such contests, where all could take part at once. It is not necessary to organize a tournament on chess and checkers, as this will quickly get bored. And do not forget to control their actions so that guests do not quarrel, do not fight and do not break anything in the house.
- The sea is worried about times
Usually the given game is perceived by children on "Hooray". It helps to get closer, meet and have fun at the same time. So, everyone gets in an arbitrary order, but so that everyone has free space. You say the words: "The sea worries once, the sea worries two, the sea worries three ...". At this time, kids can jump, spin, dance. Then the presenter quickly says: "Sea (magic, animal, flower) figure on the spot freeze." At this point, the children should stop and froze, depicting some sea (fairy, animal, garden) character. The one who drives, selects a few people who stopped the funniest thing, and asks them to show the animated figure. The most creative and resourceful wins and becomes the leader.
Children are divided into two or three teams. One player (the presenter) guesses the word and tells it to the second participant. He must hint with the help of drawings and signs of what was meant. The group that has guessed more wins. On average, children spend 40-50 minutes on such games, after which interest begins to fade.
- High chair
For 10 participants, take 9 chairs (ie.e one less than children), put them in a semicircle. The music starts, the kids start running around. Once the song ends, everyone should quickly sit down. Who has not had enough space, is out of the game. Plus, one of the high chairs is removed. And so, until there is no one player left. The winner gets a prize.
- Get in the basket
If the company is small (no more than 8-10 children), youyou can arrange competitions for agility. To do this you will need a bucket and a pair of balls. Each of the guests must hit the target. At the same time, everything is said about all three attempts. If the first time no one is out, move the basket away.
- Tug of war
If the place allows, you can take childrenby pulling the rope. In this case, the number of toddlers should be even, so that no one is offended that he dropped out of the game. Of course, it is you who should be divided into teams, taking into account the growth, age, strength of the child.
Funny games for school children: junior classes
Grades 1-3 are a watershed moment for children. Boys and girls cease to communicate closely even on holidays. They begin to create their own circles of interest. And it will be difficult for you to involve everyone in games. Most of the guests will prefer to sit out in the corner, as they will be shy. Therefore, the first thing you need to bring people together, liberate them. And only after that you can proceed to more serious contests.
- let's get acquainted
The main goal of this game is to introduce guests,who came to you on a holiday. Ask the children to form a circle, and you, as the presenter, stand in the middle. First introduce yourself and tell us about yourself. Do not invent a tirade for half an hour. Suffice it to say your name, your favorite cartoon, what you prefer to do, whether you have pets. Then throw the ball to the next player who also must tell everyone about himself and his hobbies.
- I believe or do not believe
This game - this is another great example,how you can make friends on holidays. So, beforehand we write down about each participant some interesting facts. You can do this either by calling your parents, or as soon as the kids come to the party. When everyone sits down at the table, offer to play. Please note: questions should be kind, childish, so that they are not perceived by the child with hostility. Correctly: "Peter Pen is a favorite Vasin cartoon? The tortoise of Leonardo at Zhenya is depicted on a diary or briefcase. " Wrong: "Petya plays with his younger sister in dolls." In the second case, a holiday for a guest can be spoiled, since present classmates and odnodok can mock and laugh at him.
- Looking for treasure
What a holiday without running around, noise and merry laughterchildren? So, first you need to take care of the safety of personal belongings. For this game you will need to remove all the beating, fragile and valuable from the room. After that, hide some mysterious object in the far corner (behind the closet, on the shelf, behind the couch), where no one peeps. As a treasure, it is best to choose toys, chocolates, a box of chocolates. Also do not forget to draw a plan of the room, denoting the cross with a cross, and the path follows - the dotted line. When the holiday comes to an end, invite guests to find a treasure map. Divide the group into two teams, preferably with an equal number of players. And ask them a few puzzles-hints, where the fragments of the map lie. For example, you can hide a piece in a bookcase. You can say about it: "It is glued, sewn, without doors, but it is closed. Who opens it - knows a lot. " Who will guess, will have to go and take from there the following clue. After both teams collect at least part of the card, you can send them in search.
How to organize a holiday properly
Unfortunately, not all parents understand the child'spsychology. While developing games, they do not think that some of them do not fit the age, level of development (both mental and physical). Then they start to wonder why the holiday went wrong, it would be desirable and it was planned. Therefore, if you took the goal of organizing a children's party, follow the following rules.
Not all children like active games, running around,take part in competitions. There are kids who prefer to sit out in the corner, watching the others. Such guests should not be forced to take part and do what they do not want. If you forcibly try to involve the child, he will begin to protest, down to tears and hysterics. And you do not want to spoil the holiday with a bad mood? Therefore, voluntariness is the first thing you should remember.
- Presence of the leader
Recently, children's holidays are increasinglyyou can see the professional leading. They dance, sing, play with children, involving all those present. And even the most shy child will not sit in the corner, but voluntarily join the others. But even if you do not have the opportunity to invite an experienced facilitator, it can be you. Remember: your main task is to familiarize the kids with the rules, organize the game. But this does not mean that later you can stay away, watching the running and screaming kids. You must be directly involved as a player. Do not forget that you are a partner, not a senior manager.
That the holiday was not overshadowed by a broken vase andfrightened cat, take care of the availability of free space. As it was already said above, remove from the nursery everything that could be damaged. It's bad when the owners of the house do not allow the kids to swag and have fun, constantly repeating that they should be quieter. In such cases, no one will want to play.
- Presence of prizes
If all the time you will reward onlywinners, you will make a serious mistake. The losers will sit on the sidelines and conceal the resentment of the more successful participants. So do not forget about incentive prizes. For example, it can be sweets, souvenirs, balls and other trifles, which will distract attention from the defeat.
Little children are a scattered people. They can not stay long in one place and concentrate on certain things. Therefore, try to ensure that the game does not take much time. Otherwise they will cool down and lose interest. It is better to make contests interspersed with a feast. Adhering to the above rules, you can organize a children's holiday just as good as a professional. The main thing is to feel the mood of the kids. And do not forget to think about "retreats", if suddenly you will not succeed in capturing guests. It can be cartoons on TV, fun music with dances, etc.
