Star Wars Birthday Party Games
Light Saber Balloon Balance
Give everyone a plastic light saber and a blown up balloon. Have
the party guests stand in a big circle and then tell them to keep
their balloon in the air by hitting it up lightly with the light saber.
If the balloon touches the ground they are out ... last one with their
balloon in the air wins.
Light Saber Relay
Teams move a balloon from
the starting point, around a cone, and back to the starting point
where they will hand their balloon off.
Divide kids into teams and have them line up one right after
the other. Give each team one light saber and one blown up
balloon. One by one they must move the balloon by hitting it
gently on their light saber around the cone and back to the line.
The balloon can not touch the ground. If it touches the ground
that person must go back to the line and begin again. First team
with all of their players to finish wins.
Jabba the Hut Slime Relay
Fill two containers with lots of slime. Place them at the end of
the playing field. At the other end set up
two see through containers that both have a mark or fill line at the
same height. Divide party guests into two teams and give each team
a plastic spoon. The players must one at a time run to the slime,
fill the spoon with the slime, run back to the starting line and place
their spoonful of slime in the see through container. Guests
continue one after the other until one team's container reaches the fill
Asteroid Treasure Hunt
Before the party make lots of "asteroids" by crumpling up aluminum foil
into balls. They can be all sizes. Inside some of the
"asteroids" place a prize or a number that they can turn in for the
corresponding prize when they find it. Tell the party guests to
find all the asteroids they can and then when they have finished finding
all of them tell them to open them up to see if there is a prize inside.
This Star Wars game is also fun to play at night with only the use of flashlights.
