Birthday games for 3 year olds: animal race
Birthday games for 3 year olds: animal race


If you are organizing your little one's birthday, and you are looking for an idea ofbirthday entertainment to do to occupy him and his friends: we have what you need! The animal race is a perfect game for toddlers from 3 years old. It is very simple, the only difficulty is to imitate the approach of with animals children's favourites. It lasts a little less than 10 minutes: just enough time to explain and have the children pass at least twice each!

And lo and behold, everyone has arrived! Your living room looks like a real barnyard! Luckily you had a birthday games idea to bring everyone together! We ask all the little chicks to gather and go for the animal race! 

- Everyone at chicken coop !!! (Children walk up to a designated wall or piece of furniture.) I'm going to race you!

- Oooooooh!

- As it is a bit easy, I will give you constraints. For the first lap, I'd like you to race jumping like kangaroos. The first to touch me wins! Are you ready ?

- Yeaaaah.

- Cheer ! For round 2, I would like you to gallop like horses.

At each new turn, you can offer them to vary the steps. It's up to the children to jump forward, squatting like frogs, backwards, joining hands two by two, mouse-stepping, bunny-hopping... Make sure, by asking them to show you, that everyone understand.

At 3 years old, children are toddlers. It's normal if very quickly the normal steps take over or if they don't succeed!
