Partners Matchup

  • pen
  • tack or tape

How to Play

Write a number of famous fairytale characters on small strips of paper. Have them taped to the back of each child. You should write only two characters from selected fairytales and choose two children as pairs (without them knowing it). This works best if their are even teams. Each child should have a turn at asking the other players about their character such as; 'is my character a woman or a man? Is he an animal?. Is my character mean? The children can only say 'yes' or 'no' answers. Clues can be given to children who are having a hard time guessing who their character is. Once each child has correctly guessed their character they have to find a partner who is also in the same fairytale.

What Was She Wearing?

Indoor kids Party Games Number 9

Jumbled Rhymes

Photocopy and enlarge some rhymes. Cut out each rhyme's lines. Arrange these into piles for the children. This can be the same rhyme or each child can have a different rhyme. Tell the children that they are going to have to arrange the lines into correct order. The first person to do so is the winner.


An alternative is to cut out the colored rhymes for the younger children, and they should try and match up the stanzas (verses) rather than the lines, this makes it easier.

See the Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat Rhyme here. In color and in black and white.

Memory Challenge Super Mario

Place the cards face down on a large surface and each person has a go at turning over two at a time. If they turn over two of the same, they keep the cards.
