Earlier this week I shared Part 1 of my son’s Round Up party with the promise of more party details. One of my favorite parts of party planning is planning the party activities for our guests. Since the weather was perfect, we decided to have all the activities outdoors. I set up an area of carnival style games for everyone to enjoy.
Activities included: Target practice, bottle ring toss, can toss, guitar bean bag toss, horse shoes, hobby horse races, pinata, potato sack races, Pin the Badge on the Sheriff and jail time.
One of my favorite games was the Target practice. I set up the game I bought from Country Hands Woodworking on a barrel and we all took turns shooting the targets with the rubber band guns.
I always like to have a pinata at a party, it’s just good old fun. But I have had the worst luck with pinatas, and this party was no different. This little horse was stubborn, but finally after several good smacks it gave up the goods!
If you have been following my parties, you will know that at almost every party I incorporate a “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” style game customized to match our theme. I created a “Pin the Badge on the Sheriff” for our hoe-down. I love how the little Sheriff looks just like my Liam!
It’s just not a hoe-down without a game or two or three of Horse Shoes! We all had a turn throwing the old iron around. It was good clean fun!
I found a bean bag toss on clearance at Staples after Christmas and figured I could put it to good use at one of our parties. Then it hit me, why not make them into Guitars? The bigger kids and adults loved them and played several competitive games of bean bag toss.
Bottle ring toss proved to be the most challenging of the games, it was hard to get that little ring around the coke bottles, but it sure was entertaining!
The most fun was watching the hobby horse races and potato sack races. The kids had such a great time, they were all smiling ear to ear.
We all took a turn in Jail for some photo booth fun for the perfect photo op.
We served a feast fit for any cowboy complete with a Chuck Wagon, Watering Hole and pie tins for plates.
Liam’s party was a huge success, everyone enjoyed great food, fun and lots of laughs! It was the perfect day and best of all my little man loved it. He enjoyed every second of his big day surrounded by those who love him most.
Thank you for visiting and God Bless!
