Ninja Party Game

You get a group of people in a circle. One person is designated as the "SENSEI" and everyone else bows to him/her. Then the Sensei starts the game by trying to hit the hand of the person to their left. If they miss the person's hand, the Sensei must stay in the same position they were in when they tried to hit the person's hand.

In other words, the Sensei freezes where they are. Then the next person goes and tries to hit the hand of the person on his/her right. Only one move is allowed per person per turn! No one can move unless they are trying to get a hand or trying to dodge from getting out of the game. 

You're out of the game when someone tags your hand. The last person in the game is the new Sensei.

Broom Twist Party Game

What you need:
Get all of your mates and a broom. 

How to play:
One-by-one the players will hold the broom with the brush end facing towards the sky. The player then has to turn around, fast, ten times. Once they have finished turning around ten times they drop the broom on the ground and try to jump over it. The faster you spin, the harder it is to jump over the broom.

Tip: Make sure you have plenty of space and no objects around that you could fall into.

Giant Board Game

What you Need:
Chalk
Dice
Square cardboard box
Marker pen

How to Play:
Before the party draw a giant game board with squares on the sidewalk or driveway. The squares on the game board need to be large enough for a person to stand in comfortably.

Using chalk write numbers on the squares in order. Make one space the starting space and in the other spaces write things the players have to do while in that space.

Some fun examples for the squares are: Hop on one leg, cluck like a chicken, say "Yowza" after everything anyone says, turn around in circles, give everyone a high five, etc. You could also leave a few spaces blank. 

Make a dice by writing numbers on the sides of a big cardboard box. The players themselves are the playing pieces and they take it in turns to throw the dice and then they move themselves through the game board depending on the number that they threw on the dice. When they land on a square, they must perform the action written on the square.

Rule: They must continue doing the action until their next throw.

The winner is the one who reaches the last space first on an exact throw.
