The Kiddos got to play some fun butterfly games at Putti's 5th birthday Party. Unlike the parties in the past, where I have had mostly art activity for the kids, this year I wanted to make games. Mainly because it was at a club house and the number of kids expected were higher than last years. I was not sure if I can handle the art activity with a larger group. However we did have one small activity - Color your own gift bag as soon as the kids arrived. After which they all ate the various butterfly themed food and then got geared up to play butterfly games. I kept them simple.Pin It Now!

Pin Stick the Antenna on the Butterfly:
In the style of the ever popular 'pin the tail on donkey'. I drew a butterfly on a foam board and butterfly colored it in with sharpies, she sure gets delighted when she gets to use sharpies! I made several antennas with pipe cleaners. And just before playing, stick a piece of tape to the pipe cleaner antenna for the kiddos to put it on the butterfly. For blindfolding the kids, I used my travel eye mask.
Putti wanted to go first and all kids agreed as she was the birthday girl, love their playing spirit!
Followed by all the other kids. You can see Putti was really excited while her friends played.
Here, some of the kids are checking to see which antenna is placed correctly and where is their own.
2. Pass the Butterfly
Another simple game which needed absolutely no preparations. I used a mini foil butterfly balloon, making sure they are not inflated with helium. But you can sew a stuffed butterfly if you want to. We played some butterfly songs and other kids songs while the kids passed the butterfly to the person next to them.
Putti was thrilled to be one of the last two players. Finally, the little friend won!
