Zebra Party Games
Herding Zebras Game
Each team will need 3 black and white striped balloons and 2 brooms.
Team members have to "herd" the zebras (the black and white balloons) -
using only the broom - around the party room and back again. If a
zebra balloon pops then the herder must go to the starting line, get
another balloon and begin again. The team which herds all the
zebras with every player on the team wins.
Catch the Zebras Tail
- Players will line up & hold hands for the whole game ... the fun
is that they can not drop each others hands. After they have lined
up tell the party guest on one end of the line that will start and be
the Zebras head and the person at the other end of the line is the
Zebras' tail. The Zebra's head will try and tag it's Zebra tail
... and they will find it is not so easy with all the guests in the
middle of them and the tail! When they tag the tail then they
become the tail and the next person at the other end of the line becomes
the new Zebra head. Keep going until everyone has caught the
Pin the Tail on the Zebra
Buy or make a big poster size drawing of a Zebra. Cut out tails
from poster board (for fun add some black fur to the end
of each tail) and number them on the back. Place double stick tape
on each tail. Blindfold guests one by one and have
them try and pin the tail on the Zebra. The closest to the Zebra's
tail on the poster wins a prize.
Zebra Tail Limbo
Use a pink or black boa to play Limbo. Have two guests hold each
end of the boa about 4 feet off the ground. The rest of the party
guests line up and one at a time try to go under the boa without
touching it. After everyone has had a turn lower the boa 6 inches
and then everyone tries again. Keep lowering the boa until their
is one person who can make it under the lowest height.
