Mother Goose Party Ideas
Mother Goose Egg Hunt
Send the party guests on an egg hunt with a twist ... call the plastic eggs Mother Goose eggs! Fill eggs with wrapped candy or place numbers on the eggs and the children get a prize that matches the number when the game is over. Children love this game ... if you want to play over and over write numbers on the eggs, but don't tell them what the numbers are for until the very last round. Some older children might like to help hide the eggs for the younger kids.
Baa Baa Black Sheep Relay
For the relay you need several large black pom-pom balls and two wooden spoons for this relay race. Divide the children into teams. Give the first child in line a wooden spoon and set a black pom-pom ball on the spoon. They guests must race, one at a time, from the start line, across the play area and back. Then they give the spoon to the player next and they race until everyone on the team has had a turn. The first team to have all members to finish the race is the winner. If the pompom ball falls off while playing the players must pick it up and return to the team to begin again.
Jack and Jill Water Relay
Teams race to fill up their water buckets first! This game requires a large water bucket (both teams can share if it is large enough) filled with water, 2 see through containers and a cup with a few holes in the bottom so that it will leak a little as they run across the yard. One person from each team will take the cup, go to the big container, fill their teams cup, run with the cup to their waiting team and put the water in their container ... then the next teammate in line goes and so on until the container is filled.
Jack Jump Over the Candlestick
A fun game for younger children. Place a small red or yellow pillow on the floor. Have the children line up and jump over the "candlestick". Once they have all had a turn place another smaller pillow on the first pillow and let the kids start another round. You can also set up red and yellow wooden blocks in the shape of a candle instead of the pillows and continue to add blocks for each round.
This could even become a game for the kids and adults to try and guess as many Mother Goose nursery rhymes from the clues on the table.
Mother Goose Puzzles
Make a puzzle station and let the children put together puzzles of Mother Goose characters.
Find a favorite Mother Goose rhyme character to use for your invitations. Make the invitations about one character or place stickers that will hint at the Mother Goose characters.
