LOL! I am having a 7 yo birthday party next week!
Dont forget Pin the Tail on the Donkey....kids love it!
We do Freeze Dance....best 'frozen' dance wins.
Instead of Musical Chairs (as it can get a bit dangerous...too many shoving kids!) you can do Musical Hats. Same principal but hats on the ground they need to pick up on put on.

The freezing dance game is always a hit - dance around and freeze when music stopped, first person to love is out and keep going until one person left
Just regular dance off - have all kids dance for a song, judge best dancer
Instead of musical chairs do spots on the ground in a bigger area - could just cut out from cardboard or use cushions to sit on
Depending on theme could do 'pin the tail' ie my DS wants a 'footy' themed party this year so we are doing 'pin the football' whoever puts it closest to a star in the centre of the goals
The game where you hand donuts from string from the clothesline or something else and kids have to eat without using their hands!

That game where you put different things in boxes (tinned spaghetti, etc) and you blindfold them and they have to guess what they are.

Thanks guys lots of great ideas. I'll try and find a pin the tail on the donkey his having a transformers party so can't really do that to theme so will stick to a donkey.

On thing we use at all our parties is coloured hairspray- pink, blue, green, glitter etc- boys and girls love it equally and it gives a focus as they are happy to line up and wait their turn to get cool hair. I buy mine from $2 shops. Also, lining up for icecream cones with a few things to decorate eg sprinkles, choc drops, topping. these aren't games, but I find it gives a bit of focus when all the kids go crazy!

Treasure hunt! We had one for DS birthday last year, most of my friends kids are 7-10 and it was the highlight!

Piñata will keep them occupied! Spotlight sell ones that have strings to pull rather than whacking it. Do it at the start of the party then put a the lollies in a bowl to share. Donut game is awesome. As are all the other suggestions!!

What about that game where you tie a balloon to everyone's ankle, then you have to try and pop other people's balloons. Who ever has a balloon last wins.
Ohhh! That liquid chalk you buy! They can decorate windows
The chocolate game? Although that could be hard with lots of kids.
