This week’s Works-For-Me-Wednesday has a birthday theme.
Present opening time was always the hardest part of a child’s party to me. Everyone crowds too close & there is always that one kid who thinks they need to help open all the presents. We play a game at our parties that solves this problem.
Have all the kids sit in a circle holding the present they brought. Turn on some fun music & tell the kids to start (slowly) passing the gifts around the circle. When the music stops, the birthday child opens whatever present is in his/her hand at the time. Repeat until all the gifts have been opened.
Not having to deal with a present free-for-all works for me! Head on over to Rocks In My Dryer for more great birthday ideas.
(Just wanted to let you know that I did not create this game. We played it at a party one of the kids went to many years ago, but with 4 kids I have no idea who’s party it was!)
