1st Monkey Birthday Party Games


Pin The Tail On The Monkey

This is the monkey version of the popular game Pin the Tail On The Donkey. Depending on your preference, you can make this game a mom/dad-child tandem game, wherein the mom or dad is blindfolded, with their kiddo giving instructions on where to pin the tail. Or you can make this a purely kid activity and just let your kiddies have fun guessing where to pin the monkey’s tail.

Either way, the pair or kid who was able to pin the tail nearest the target deserves a kiss from the birthday celebrant and a prize.

Yellow Balloon Race

You will need tons of yellow balloons for this game. This will be an active game with the mom/dad-child tandem working together to achieve the goal, which is to pop all the balloons assigned to them.

The balloons are on one side of the room, while the parents are on the other side. The goal of each kid is to bring a balloon to their parent one at a time, until all the balloons are popped.

The team who showed the most ability in popping balloons in the shortest time possible will be declared your balloon popping champions.

Animal Face Paint

You can hire a face painter (or ask a friend with artistic abilities) to paint the faces of your kid guests according to their preferred jungle animal. Another approach is to turn this into a fun and wild game instead, and make this another mom/dad-kid tandem game. Either way, this will be a fun and fitting activity for your first birthday monkey party! If you are going for the latter, then the parents of your birthday girl/boy will be the esteemed judges on who gets the best face paint award.

Looking for animal face paint designs? There are lots of them from the Internet and they are just a few google away. No time to search around? Then you might want to look at this face painting site for design ideas.

Pass the Bananas

This will play like the popular game Musical Chairs, but instead of chairs, two bananas will get passed around, while your birthday music is playing - one in clockwise direction, and the other in counter-clockwise.

When the music stops, whoever has the bananas will need to eat them fast. The kid who was slower in guzzling his/her banana will be out of the game, new bananas will be made available, music resumes, and the passing of bananas will start all over again.
