Having a Party? GET A BOX!
If you want your party to be a big hit with kids, get a box. Get a big box…the kind appliances come in. Just the box alone will be a draw and the kids will just love climbing inside it. It won’t matter if it’s right side up, or on its side.
But, if you want to be a bigger hit, cut doors in the front of the box. Just make a cut down the middle of one side and on the top and bottom (like a giant letter “I”). The doors will then open and the fun can begin.
One game that I’ve done many, many times is called “Who’s In The Box” and it’s always a gigantic hit.
The way you play is to have all the kids turn their backs to the box and close their eyes (no peeking!). Then, choose one child to get in the box. If you made doors, close the doors. If you didn’t make doors, just pick the child up and put them inside of the box and close the top flaps (partially or all the way).
