Instead of having pin the tale on the donkey have pin the belt on the wrestler, get a poster of the childs favorite wrestler, and copy off several belts on a copy machine, then blind fold the kid and see who can get the closest with the belt.
Birthday Party Game
In this game you will need a shoe box and small little toys and stuff like that. You put 21 items in the showbox like a paper clip, rubber band, really small toy etc. Then you get each one of the party guests to examine the things inside the shoe box one at a time.. for only 2 minutes. When there time is up tell them to start writing down what they remember on a sheet of paper, and tell them not to look at anyone elses awnsers! Give them about 15 minutes and then ask them how many items they could remember, who ever has the most wins a prize!

Vintage Theme party: A la the show, “Project Runway”. Each girl gets $10-$15 and goes to a local thrift/vintage shop and tries to put together the best outfit- accessories included. Then come back to the house and after doing hair and makeup, put on a fashion show. The available parents can judge. Depending on the number of girls, this can be done in teams or individually.

Makeover Disaster Game
Ok split your party up into groups or 2. Then have them decide who will be giving the makeover and who will be reciving it. Once they decide tell them that the person that is doing the makover must have a blanket over their head and to sit behind the person that they are giving the makeover. After that they put their arms under the persons armpits so they are able to reach their face. Then someone hands the blind person lipstick and says “lipstick” and they must try to put the lipstick on the persons lips and so on with blush and eyeshadow and any other makeup suplies you can think of. Then whoever did the best makeover wins. This game is sure to get about 15 girls happy believe me it works.

Slumber Party Game
no-mirror makeover: Give each girl makeup and give them 5 minutes to do there makeup without a mirror! Take their pictures when they’re finished and the parent can judge. Whoever’s makeup is the worst wins a small prize (don’t tell the girls!)Whoever loses (the girl who did the best)has to wear the makeup until the party is over!
I buy a 50-pack of large balloons, then squeeze coins, candies, and anything else that will fit into the opening of each balloon, then I blow the balloons up and kids race around the yard popping the balloons to get what’s inside. They love it, some good candy for this is tootsie rolls and dumdum lollipops, they fit good.
For this party game you will need 2 buckets, 2 balls, 2 hula-hoops, and 2 teams (can have as many players per team). put the hula hoops parell from each other on one end and the buckets on the other end parrell to each other too. put each ball in a hula-hoop. When your guest arive or you are ready to play, line your guest up and have them lay down to make it harder tell them to sit. Then with out using your hands tell the first person to lift the ball (on each team) with their feet and give it to the next person in line. If the ball drops or some one touchs it with their hands your team has to start over. once it gets to the last person in line they have to drop it in the bucket without there hands and then grab it with their HANDS run to the front of the line and drop it in the hula-hoop then follow the same process. each person in the team should get a chance to be first.
