A ‘My 1st Birthday Party’ is more about family and friends as the Birthday Boy or Girl will mostly enjoy the wrapping paper and making a mess of their first piece of birthday cake! See Basic Party Games for games that everyone can join in on.
My 1st Birthday Game – Ask guests to bring a childhood picture of themselves for a guessing game. The picture doesn’t have to be a 1st birthday picture. Arrange a poster on the wall so you can post all the pictures and have everyone guess who the babies are. Number the pictures and provide a sheet for each guest to write down their answers. Give a prize for the most correct answers.
Babies Wish Book – Buy a guest book or scrapbook and have everyone say something nice that they wish for the baby as they grow up. This will make a nice memento for the future. Read them out for all to hear.
Guess the Baby Food or Guess the Cotton Balls – Take the labels off of baby food jars and have the guests guess what is in the jar. Place cotton balls in a large glass jar and have the guests guess how many cotton balls there are. Place sheets beside the jars for the guests to write down their guesses. Closest wins a prize.
