Fun ideas for a kid's Camouflage Birthday Party.
This is a really neat boys party theme by itself and works well with
a hunting theme also.
Camouflage cards - Buy or color your own.
Tear small pieces of khaki, light green, dark green and black
construction paper into small pieces. Glue onto plain white cards for a Camo collage.
Buy camo parachute men - the small toys - and write the
birthday party information onto the parachutes in black or dark
Ask party guests to wear their camo for the party.
Camouflage curtains (they look like netting) and hunting blinds.
Dark green, brown and black balloons and streamers.
Camouflage tablecloths, napkins, cups
with green or black flatware.
Place food and snacks in camouflage
colored bowls and dishes.
Scavenger hunts are always fun and are perfect for a camouflage
party. See our scavenger hunt page for a complete list
of all of our scavenger hunts with free clue lists to print out. Let the final
clue lead to a hidden camo piñata.
Buy camouflage t-shirts for each guest to wear at
Camouflage Party Games
Capture the Flag
Hide & Seek
Hide & Seek can be a great game to play at a
Camo party. Paint the kids faces with camo paint and see who can
hide the best from the other players. At night flashlights
are fun to use for a game of flashlight Camo Hide & Seek.
In Plain Site
For this party game you will need an item that is camouflage colored
such as a piece of cloth, army man or plastic toy jeep. The first
player takes the item and "hides" it in the backyard - but the item
cannot be completely hidden from view. They must try to camouflage
the item so that it blends in with the background. After the item
is hidden the rest of the players come out to a designated spot and try
and find the item. They must stay within the spotting area and try
to find it using only their eyes (or you can provide binoculars).
On "go" start a stop watch and see how long it takes the kids to spot
the item. The child who spots the item gets a point and the
one who "hid" the item gets a point for every 15 seconds that their item
is not found.
Kids of all ages love to play capture the flag. For complete
Capture the Flag.
A few hours before the birthday party begins hide small toys like army men or objects like
plastic gold coins. Send the kids out on a quest to recover the
hidden items. They can take home the items they find as party
favors or turn them in for bigger prizes.
Camo Obstacle Course
Set up a big obstacle course that kids will run through or have relay
style races in teams. Teams compete to see who can finish the
obstacle course first and individual players can compete with a stop
watch. Make a mud pit that they have to crawl through or step
through tires or hula hoops while all the other players throw water
balloons at them. Stake several rows of string about 2 feet off the ground that
they have to crawl underneath. Trampolines, swing sets and climbing gyms
can all be used to make the course.
Water Relay Games
Teams complete to see which one can fill their water jug first.
You'll need a very large container filled with water for both teams to
use and two plastic milk jugs - one for each team. Teams are given
a spoon, sponge or cup with holes in the bottom and on "go" race to see
who can fill the milk jugs first. The large container and
the teams jugs should be a good distance apart ... the farther apart the
more water they will spill while running to fill their jugs.
Face painting - paint the guests faces in camouflage colors.
For younger children gather several big boxes and paint them in camouflage colors. Cut out doors and windows and make
a large fort or two smaller forts to play in. In the summer
have a water balloon fight.

Party Food Ideas
Decorate cupcakes with black, green and camo color candies.

black candies to fill the containers.
Have a cookout with hotdogs and/or hamburgers.
