Grandparents Day Party Game Ideas
The objective of this game is to make a costume with the help of newspapers. The guests (children and their grandparents) are divided into teams with two players in each team. The players are supplied with few sheets of newspaper, a pair of scissors, and a roll of cello tape. A time limit, say 15 minutes, is set, within which each team has to create an outfit. The costume should consist of a hat, top, and pants. Each player uses only one sheet of newspaper. After the time is over, teachers judge the costumes made by each team and hand out prizes for the neatest and the most creative costumes.
Laugh Out Loudly
This is a very hilarious game to watch and even more fun to play. A challenging one, the players are asked to sit in a circle facing each other. Then, a player starts the game by saying "Ha!" The next player follows this by saying "Ha! Ha!" while the third continues with "Ha! Ha! Ha!" and so on. A player is eliminated from the game as soon as he/she speaks out the wrong number of "Ha!"
This is a very popular Grandparents Day game, in which the grandparents themselves are asked to race with a spoonful of peas. The objective of the game is to become the first in reaching the other end of the hall with a spoon full of green peas. The players should walk with utmost care, because the peas should not fall off their spoons until they reach the other end. The grandparent who first reaches the other end is declared as the winner.
Pick the Ping-Pong Balls
This is another funny party game for Grandparents Day. The game consists of several teams with two players in each team (again, a grandparent with his/her grandchild). Ping-pong balls of different colors are thrown all around the party hall. The aim of the team is to collect as many ping pong as they can and put them with two little buckets within a set time limit, say 5 minutes. Then, the next team is given the chance. Three to four teams generally play this game. The team which collects the maximum number of ping pong balls is declared the winner.
