Hello everyone first I want to thank Golden carers for having an awesome website. This website has taken a lot of pressure off me and has helped me in being so creative. Do anyone have ideas for birthday party games? I want to do fun things before we have cake and ice cream. Thank you

OOOOH, I love celebrating birthdays!
I posted this idea before, but it's a fun one that works for groups of all sizes and abilities: Do an acrostic poem! Write the birthday boy/girl's name vertically on a large piece of cardboard or white board, and then ask everyone in the group to think of a word that describes the person that begins with the same letter. For example:
L: lovely, laughing
O: okay, optimistic
I: interesting
S; superb, silly
Write big, so everyone can see the words, and then take a picture of the birthday boy/girl holding his/her poem!
