I need ideas for a 7 year old's indoor birthday party.
By Mary from Chicago, IL
Growing up in Brooklyn, most parties were inside. We always played musical chairs and pin the tail on the donkey. Another game we played was the parent who is hosting the party would put about a dozen items on a tray, for instance a rubber band, paper clip, a pen you get the idea. The kids would have 5 seconds to look at the tray, then would have to write down as many items that they remembered. The person who can name the most won. Maybe you can get a bunch of party hats and have the kids decorate them. When my son was turning 6, I had a sponge Bob party for him. I bought a bunch of yellow sponges, google eyes, felt and other craft odds and ends and I had the kids make their own Sponge Bob. Hope these ideas can help you out!

Blow up your balloons and rub them on her head the static. It will make them stick to the ceiling.
What is the best theme for my son's birthday party, he's turning 7 years old?
By Mayet from Philippines
When my daughter turned 7, we had a Scooby-Doo party, but you could simply make it a detective party. When the kids came in, we sat them down for a snack, to be followed by cake. I brought in an empty cake plate with a note saying it was their job to solve the Case of the Missing Cake. They had to work together to receive clues (for example, they played pass the parcel and the clue was in the final box they unwrapped). Eventually, the last clue led them to the (turned off) oven, which is where I had hidden the cake. You can make it as fancy or as simple as you want. (For instance, you could make reverse messages for them to read in a mirror.) It was a big hit and the kids loved working together versus competing. Good luck!
I am going to be having a birthday party for my daughter in November which she will be 7 years old. Does anyone know of any neat games to play or treasure hunt ideas any suggestions will help.

It's hard to describe it, but definitely worth checking out. I would recommend this for kids ages 6+, though I understand the company is coming out with a pictorial version for littler kids. The difficulty of the clues you enter would make it harder or easier, since each word becomes a hieroglyph that must be "translated".
Anyhow, it's great fun. I've done it for a 7-year olds' party and it was perfect. (07/29/2007)

I also enlisted my teenage daughter for help with this game where I covered boxes with construction paper she built a tower at the top of the stairs for the children to throw a soft ball and knock them down. The kids loved it and waited in line for their turn which gave me a minute to breath. Another game for children to release their pent up energy is balloon volley ball. String balloons across a hallway or a doorway have each side have a different color balloon the object of the game is to get your team's color balloon to the other side. (01/11/2008)
You can name your little girl unofficial princess of whatever year it is. (Ex: Unofficial Princess of 2008) Let your princess choose what dress she would like to wear including a crown and maybe even a wand. You will also need to make a piece of paper with the princess's name on it.
At any time during the party get everyone together in the living room or any other room. Have someone be the host of the princess campaign. Have the host introduce the candidates and what royal kingdom they each came from. Give the other princess candidates silly names such as Princess Galogagoof. In case the host needs to stall because the princess can't get into her gown. See who will play along, and ask the people in the audience what kingdom they came from and what they like about their kingdom. When your princess is ready ask someone for the envelope (best be a parent). Then the host will announce that your princess has won.
This party idea was lots of fun, and we let our older daughter be the host. She brought in many laughs. I hope you will use this idea or it will help you think of a similar one. (01/13/2008)
For games I will let them watch Spiderman movies, make up random games like pin the radioactive spider on Peter Parker. Let them squirt silly string at each other for a web fight. Decorations will include red and blue streamers, red and blue balloons and invitations will be on a piece of paper that says, "come on and swing on by to (child's name ) Spiderman birthday bash". It will be decorated with Spiderman stickers. Use your imaginations to make the kids day more fun. Kids use theirs all the time. Have fun.(12/30/2008)
