Activities & Games

Pn the Tail on the Horse
This Horse birthday party game is similar to Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Before the party cut out lots of small tails out of brown paper (put double stick tape on the tails). Draw a tail-less horse on poster board and hang it to a wall. The first kid to go has to be blindfolded before she tries to pin the tail on the horse.

Horse, Horse, Pony
This Horse birthday party game is similar to Duck Duck Goose. Invite the kids to sit in a large circle. One of the children has to be the Fox. The Fox walks around the outside of the circle, tapping the top of each horse's head. After a while the Fox chooses a Pony and calls out "PONY". The Pony has to stand up and quickly chase the Fox around the circle, trying to tag him before he reaches the spot were the Pony was sitting.

If the Fox sits down were the Pony was sitting before getting tagged, he is save. Then the Pony becomes the Fox, but if the Fox is tagged before he reaches to sit down were the Pony was sitting before, the Fox must start the game again. Until another player becomes the Fox.

Pony Rides
If you have a big yard, why not rent some Ponies for two hours. The kids will love to ride on them.

Musical Buckets
This Horse birthday party game is similar to musical chairs. Musical buckets - place buckets upside-down if your outside. If your are indoors play musical chairs.

Cake

To make this Horse birthday party cake you need to make two round cakes, let them cool well. Cut out two ears, a horse's nose (and the jaw) out of one of the round cakes.

Then assemble those pieces around the other round cake. Look at our pony cake picture for help. Frost the cake pink. Use m&ms for the eyes and nose. Decorate the horse main as you whish.

If you wan't something more fancy and would like to make a more professional looking horse cake, like a real horse picture on a cake. Ask the local bakery to print and sell you the tranfer paper. If you wan't a drawing of a horse, you can use a projector (get a small one for kids art projects). The drawing is projected onto the cake, then you can outline and fill it with icing.

Goody Bags

The actually goody bags for this party are bandanas. Fill the bandanas with favors and gather the four corners and tie a knot. Fill the party bags with a horse necklace, a pony tail holder, pony/horse tattoos, a note pad (with horses on them), and lots of small candies.

Also, give the guest the horse headband, the tail, the horseshoes and the stick horses they were given when they arrived as favors.
