    Default Easy party games for all ages?

    Hi guys
    It's my Son's 3rd birthday and party next weekend and I have 10 kids aged from 3-10 coming and I'm looking for some easy no nonsense games to play that will be suitable for everyone to play. I'm going to do a pass the parcel but not sure what else to do? I'm not keen on musical chairs as wont have enough for the kids and adults so that's not an option and I won't have a lot of grass area left with his usual play gym and a jumping castle we've hired.
    Help??! Suggestion needed
    Thanks x

    You could set up a craft table?

    For dd1's 2nd birthday we had a huge age range. I just kept it simple with a bubble machine, trampoline, colouring in table and a pull a part piñata. I didn't want to bombard them with games and thought free play would tire them out more. Plus the piñata everyone gets a prize.

    Pass the parcel! I love that game even as an adult, and it keeps the kids in one spot *chuckle*.

    Pass the parcel was a disaster at my nephews 3 yr old party. None of them wanted to pass it on even though everyone got a prize lol so many tears!

    Piñata was good, mostly they just played

    Lol at the idea of "No it's mine" instead of pass the parcel! Hopefully won't get like that hoping the bigger kids will help move it along!
    Great ideas thanks everyone keep them coming

    We usually have an m&m race when we have a really broad age range, that way you can even up teams with similar aged kids.

    Each team has a bowl of smarties or mini m&ms and each player has a straw, and they have to move as many as they can from the full bowl to an empty bowl (at the other end of the table) without using their hands. Keeps them occupied and the big kids can lead and help out the little kids.

    have it run for about 5 minutes and the team with the most moved wins
