Fun 50th Birthday Party Games
The secret to a great 50th birthday party is careful planning, good organization, lots of food, and fun games! If you're throwing the party, you'll know how to make the 50 year old feel like it's their special day. You don't have to spend a lot of money in order to have a fun time. Most of the time it's the guests that make the 50th birthday party memorable!
Successful children's birthday parties are always filled with activities. Now that you're fifty, wouldn't it be fun to relive those childhood games? You can be sure that all of your grown up guests will have a great time playing children's games again. And don't forget the prizes!
You should plan ahead for the games that you want for the 50th birthday party. Instead of Spin the Bottle, a new twist for a 50th birthday is Spin the Bottle of Mylanta! The winner gets to take home the bottle.
Another classic game, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, becomes Pin the Toupee on the Bald Head! For this you'll need a big piece of poster board that you can draw a big head on. From regular sheets of computer paper, you can cut out shapes that will resemble a toupee. For added effect, you can color these so they look like hair. Everyone should remember how to play this game!
Another game is Kick the Bucket. You'll probably have to play this outside, because it could get too wild and noisy if you're all in the living room. Charades, Simon Says, Twenty Questions, and Telephone are all fun 50th party games where everyone can have a chance to participate. If you thought these were fun games when you were a kid, wait till you play them as an adult! You won't believe how much fun everyone will have!
Don't forget the old stand by, Musical Chairs. See how fast all your guests can move! Make sure you play children's music that was popular when the 50 year old was a kid.
These timeless games are sure to remind everyone of being a kid again!
A 50th Birthday Party Roast can be a fun game. Ask everyone to write down an amusing memory of the birthday celebrant and to bring it to the party. This is also a great way for those who can't attend to contribute something that can be enjoyed by everyone. Take all the memories and put them in a box. When you're ready for this party game, have someone randomly pick them out of the box and read them aloud. Wait till you hear some of the funny things people remember!
Something that you probably haven't done in a while is sing karaoke. Load up a karoake machine with music from the 60s and 70s, and have a contest to see who can remember the most songs. Besides the fun this will be, you'll have a blast listening to the music you remember from your younger days. Make sure to take lots of pictures that you can post on your Facebook.
