Presidents Day Printable Game

A few years back,  I spoke to Deanne over at Printable Games A to Z  about the dearth of printable Presidents Day printable games. (we are so missing her site!) Here is what she suggests:

Personalize  a Customizable Printable Bingo Card  with the names of different presidents:

1. George Washington 2. John Adams 3. Thomas Jefferson 4. James Madison 5. James Monroe 6. John Quincy Adams 7. Andrew Jackson 8. Martin Van Buren 9. William Henry Harrison 10. John Tyler 11. James K. Polk 12. Zachary Taylor 13. Millard Fillmore 14. Franklin Pierce 15. James Buchanan 16. Abraham Lincoln 17. Andrew Johnson 18. Ulysses S. Grant 19. Rutherford B. Hayes 20. James Garfield 21. Chester A. Arthur 22. Grover Cleveland 23. Benjamin Harrison 24. Grover Cleveland 25. William McKinley 26. Theodore Roosevelt 27. William Howard Taft 28. Woodrow Wilson 29. Warren G. Harding 30. Calvin Coolidge 31. Herbert Hoover 32. Franklin D. Roosevelt 33. Harry S. Truman 34. Dwight D. Eisenhower 35. John F. Kennedy 36. Lyndon B. Johnson 37. Richard M. Nixon 38. Gerald R. Ford 39. James Carter 40. Ronald Reagan 41. George H. W. Bush 42. William J. Clinton 43. George W. Bush 44. Barack Obama 45. Donald Trump

We like the idea!  And if you are really into Presidential trivia, rather than calling out the Presidents' names you can give unique hints like “he was the 31st President” (Hoover) or “he was elected for two nonconsecutive terms.” (Cleveland)  Too bad none of the hints can yet refer to a “she”!

Start A New Valentine's Tradition – Play Valentine's Day Party Games With Your Coupled or Single Friends 

Lips, Valentine's Day Party Games

If you're in a relationship, the frustration of planning what to do with your special someone can become a tedious yearly endeavor. Inviting other couples to a Valentine's Day get-together can be a fun way to add something new to the holiday while still allowing for romantic time with your sweetheart. Valentine Bingo, Lefty's In Love, and Movie Love Quotes are fun games to play with a room full of people, so the more the merrier!  These games would also be perfect for classroom Valentine's Day parties and workplace break time fun!

If you're not in a relationship, spending V-Day alone often feels like rubbing salt in an open wound. That's why having your other friends who are also single over can make the reality of the day not seem quite so depressing.  Doing something different and having a Valentine's Day game night can be a fun new tradition to start.

Great Deals on Printable Holiday Games

What could be easier?  Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties – the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food, and never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves.  (except for children’s parties where we plan and schedule every minute).

And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there. And we realize things aren’t going so well.  We have had political conversations go ballistic, strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing, and the freshly minted vegan choose this opportunity to proselytize.  There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation.  That’s where these printable holiday games come in extraordinarily handy. So be your own holiday party savior with this fun and easy way to keep the kids and adults entertained for hours during long holiday gatherings.

New Year’s Party Printable Games

As the New Year approaches, all of us here at Party Idea {Pros} are beginning to make plans.  Although I usually host a large New Year's Eve Party, this year my house is in such disarray we have reluctantly acquiesced to join a group of friends at a local restaurant.  At least we won't have to drive very far.

With an eight o'clock dinner reservation, I remain concerned about how we are possibly going to fill four hours.  Yes, everyone in our party are close friends who definitely know how to Party Pretty, and  many of whom are even mildly amusing, but 4 hours seated at a table …

So I am seriously considering bringing with me a stack of printable games.  If nothing else, they will certainly produce loud roars of laughter when I whip them out during a lull in the conversation!  The fact is, I think the games will not only be fun in and of themselves, I think they will serve to jump start some lively conversations.

The Ultimate Lip-Sync Duel >> Party Fun for New Years Eve (or Any Night)!

The Ultimate Lip-Sync Duel

Party Fun for New Years Eve (or Any Night)! 

Up until now we have not featured either karaoke or a lip-sync duel as a “go to”  party activity mostly  because I really, really do not like to perform. In fact, I think my husband's biggest fear is traveling to Korea on business and being dragged into a Karaoke club.

Having said all that, we love this Jimmy Fallon lip-sync duel and have to say, dueling karaoke does look like great fun. I can now definitely see this as a New Years Eve or late night party activity as good as, or maybe even better than, charades. Adding a lip-sync duel to your list of party games will appeal to guests of all ages! Choose your playlist based on your guest list. For example, if you are having lots of children, think about including some songs from Frozen. If your party is for adults only, it might be fine to include songs with lyrics that may not be as appropriate if children were present.Party Fun: Lip Sync Duel, karaoke, party fun, activities, games

What you need:

  1. Memorex MKS-SS2 SingStand 2 Home Karaoke System or any singing machine or karaoke machine with a microphone. (We just checked and you can still get this delivered to your front door before your New Year's Eve celebration begins!)
  2. A diverse playlist
  3. A great group of guests wanting and willing to party – in other words well versed in party etiquette!

Party Hearty!

Board Game Night Party

Board Game Night

Board Game Night Party

In our increasingly digital world, board games might seem like an old-fashioned pastime. But more and more people are turning to board games as a hobby. These days, board games are more than just the classic Monopoly, Clue, and Connect 4. European-style games are a class of tabletop games that generally have simple rules, short to medium playing times (no five hour Monopoly marathons here!) and lots of social interaction. These kinds of games have become incredibly trendy: board game cafes have opened up all over the world! We think that these games can be a great way to connect with family and friends. So why not change up your usual Friday night entertainment and throw a casual board game night party?

Fair warning: some of the games on this list can be played with kids, but some of them are grown-ups only! For games for all ages, check out our Family Game Night post.

Happy Mardi Gras!!

From the moment your guests step foot into your party you can set the New Orleans tone by playing one of these great Mardi Gras party CD's.  The jazzy music sound unique to New Orleans will encourage your guests to feel festive and dance around your party setting a great vibe for the night.

Imagine having a temporary tattoo or a jester face painting station to encourage kids and adults who didn't come dressed to theme to get involved in the excitement of the holiday.  A photo booth with masks and beads to dress your guests up will bring the New Orleans feel to your celebration and would make great photos to fill up a Mardi Gras themed photo album or to send home with your guests.

For a more cost effective way to entertain your guest, think printable Mardi Gras games. They are a great way to get your guests involved in the fun without breaking the bank.  No matter how you entertain your guests at your Mardi Gras celebration just make sure to channel the jazzy high energy vibe of New Orleans and everyone will let loose and have a great time!

And of course, everyone will know the party is coming to a close when you and your guests adjourn to outside to break the pinata!

Let Party Idea {Pros} inspire you to throw the most festive Mardi Gras Party outside of New Orleans!

Halloween Party Games & Activities

Halloween Party GamesAs you well know, successful children's parties need detailed planning.  Down time often equals trouble because when you put a bunch of kids together with nothing to do, I promise you they will either create drama (girls) or create chaos (boys).  That is why Party Idea Pros highly recommends slotting in at least 4 organized activities in addition to eating.  We recommend planning a doing activity, a craft activity, a game activity, and ending the party with a breaking the pinata.  Additionally, we always plan an extra game or two just in case the kids aren't feeling one the activities we planned or each activity goes more quickly than anticipated.  Remember it is much easier to cut out a planned game than it is to create one on the spot.

For Halloween consider planning a Witch Hunt as your doing activity where you turn out the lights, and players search in the dark with  flashlights for witch paper cut-outs secretly placed around the party area! We love the Color Your Own Halloween Paddleball Games as the craft activity. And the Bean Bag Toss, Dart Board, Disk Drop, and Pin The Tail On The Cat all work for the game activity.  Halloween PinatasAnd of course, there are plenty of great Halloween pinatas available.  For the “just in case” games simply print out a few Halloween theme printable games and if you need them, you can let the kids choose which one to play.  Also, for Halloween we would add one more activity – a fashion show so the kids can “show off” their costumes!

Happy Halloween & Party Hearty!

 

50% off Pack of 450 Printable Games

Printable GamesFor one day only, September 18, 2012, Funsational is offering 50% off its MVP Printable Games Party Collection including new Halloween games.

So sorry – not only has this deal expired, Funsational has closed its doors. But not to worry – Print Games Now has taken up the slack! You can also find lots of fun printable games on Etsy.

Both Print Games Now carry Holiday, Seasonal, and Event games; Baby Shower, Bridal Shower, Birthday, Over-the-Hill, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Spring, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Harvest, Christmas, New Year's and Winter games.

If we get one question more than any other, it is “do you have any ideas of games to play at my party and by the way, our guests are arriving in 45 minutes.”  Our answer is always the same — yes, go online and order a theme pack of printable games.  The biggest time suck is always the actual ordering and, of course, the printing of the games.  Something always goes awry — generally I forget to fill in a required field and then have to start the ordering process all over again or my printer runs out of paper or worse yet, the printer jams because it knows I am in a rush.  So if you plan in advance, you will not only have peace of mind that you have easily accessible party activities (you have access to the games 24/7), you also have plenty of time to print them out well before your guests arrive.

Have Fun and Party Hearty!
