Tips and tricks instructions for children's birthday games
If you're having a birthday party, chances are you'll want to make games to ensure the atmosphere is awesome! However, there are so many possible games and variants that it is sometimes difficult to find your way around! So here's an introduction and a walkthrough for understanding the games and alternating between them in a way that makes for a successful (at best) birthday party.

- The games are written in the first person so that they can be read like a play during tea time. This does not exempt you from having read and understood them the day before the party!

- The games are classified by age; this is the minimum age at which they can be done, which means they can be done well after the age indicated. So, Wolf are you there? is recommended for children aged 3, but can be offered to children aged 4, 5, 6 and even 7!

- If certain games seem to you to be unsuited to the age indicated for your child, do not hesitate to draw from the games of the age that precedes or follows: if your child is at the end of the year and that all his friends are 6 months older than him, feel free to look at the next age. If, on the contrary, they are younger, look at the previous age.

- During the snack, you have to play games. As soon as you feel that you are losing the children or that you feel a hint of annoyance, you must change the game. The duration of the games is given as an indication. The time of a game depends on the number of children and the interest you have managed to create for the game!

- You have to do a cheat sheet (very exhaustive) with the progress of the games to always know what you are going to do next, so that they do not see in your eyes that you are lost (even if you are a bit lost).

- To keep them awake AND under control, alternate calm and excited play.

- If you do a workshop, do it after snack. It gives children a breather, they are happy to concentrate on an individual task. For you, it can be a saving moment. The worst is over! Courage, more than an hour.

- If you do two workshops, do one after 2 or 3 games, do another game before the snack, then do the 2nd workshop just after the snack! After that you have an hour of play left. After the workshops, the children like to stretch their legs.
