Keep guests at your Bohemian themed party entertained with these great party games!
Name That Tune
You’ll need a CD player and some compact discs with compilations of songs related to your theme (Luau, 50’s, retro) or just some good favorites of an era appropriate for your party guests. Play the first few bars, and see which guest can name that tune the fastest. Keep track of points and award the winner a music CD. If your group is large, play a variation on this game. Using famous songs, list song titles on one side of a page, and the original Artists or songwriters on the other side. Make enough copies for all guests. Challenge guests to match as many as possible. A challenging but fun adventure! You can even give away a CD with all the songs for a party favor!
Pass the Package
Use two props related to your party theme, or wrap two boxes to look like beautiful gifts (approximately shoe box size). Divide guests into two teams and have them form two lines. At the signal to “go”, the prop is to be passed from person to person. The catch is that guests can use any part of their bodies except their hands. If the gift touches the ground at any time, it must go back to the beginning of the line again. Whichever team manages to get the prop to the end of the line first wins the game. You may want to fill each box with little prizes or candy (enough for all), so that both teams can open the gift and be rewarded for their efforts. We have several very inexpensive prizes in our Party Favor Store. Giggling good grown-up fun!
As an alternative, provide one plastic spoon for each player. Divide guests into two teams, and have them form two lines. Have each player put the spoon handle into his/her mouth. To begin the game, put one piece of candy into the spoon of the first person in each line. Players have to pass the candy down the line – without using their hands! If the candy falls, it goes back to the start of the line. The team that gets the candy to the end of the line first wins!
A super game for older kids! Prior to the party, collect facts and information about your party theme. Compile the data into the form of questions, and write the question on one side of a piece of card. Write the answer, in small letters, on the back of the card. Divide the kids into two teams and have them take turns answering each other’s questions. If a team gets a question right, they can proceed to the next question. If they get the answer wrong, the other team gets the turn. Keep score of correct answers, and the team with the most is the winner.
Hula hooping isn’t just for kids or 50’s Sock Hops…but it will make grown-ups feel young again! Purchase or borrow a couple of hula-hoops. They are available at discount chains for about $3.99 each. Let guests know that at a specified time there will be a “hula” contest, and encourage them to practice during the party if the mood strikes.
Other great activities for a Bohemian party include dancing, face painting, arts and crafts or just socializing. Tell us your Bohemian activity ideas!
