Ring collection (Gold balloons)


Break the party into even teams (The number of teams will depend on the number of party guests.) Blow up 20 balloons for each team and put them one side of the room. This is a timed game (if necessary). When you say go have the first child for each team run and collect as many balloons as they can and run back to the team. Have large garbage bags available for each team so they can have a place to put their balloons. Once all of the balloons are collected, count each teams bag. The team with the most is the winner!

Chaos Emerald Scavenger Hunt

  • scissors

Cut 50 gems and hide them around the house (or party area.) Have the party guests collect them and assign point values for different colors. Hide 20 yellows (1 pt) 15 greens (2pts) 10 blues (3pts) 5 Reds (4pts). Make sure to hide the gems with the highest point value in harder to find places than the gems with lower point values. The child with the most points wins!
