Birthday Activities

"London bridge is falling down" Play this game to hand out favors. Two adults or children, maybe the birthday child and a sibling, hold hands up high while the other children walk underneath. On the last line, capture the child under the "bridge." Give the child a favor.

London bridge is falling down,
falling down, falling down,
London bridge is falling down,
Happy Birthday!

"Pass the present" There are two variations on this game. Instead of playing musical chairs, use the concept to pass several presents around in a circle. They should all be wrapped in different color paper. When the music stops, the child holding the present must say the correct color. Alternately, use just one present with lots of layers of wrapping paper. Each time the music stops, the child unwraps one layer. At the end of both games, give treats out to all the children.
