Western Birthday Party Games
*Rattlesnake Stomp: This is one of the most popular western birthday party theme games! The kids try to pop long balloons that are blown up and dropped on the floor. Or to spice it up even more, you can tie rubber bands to the end of each balloon and have the kids put it around their ankles.
*Shooting Gallery: Set up a shooting gallery by turning trash cans upside-down and putting tin cans on them. Then the kids can try and topple the tin cans over with bean bags (the younger kids can stand closer and use their water guns) A western birthday party theme favorite.
*Milk the Cow: This is an especially great birthday party game for a western birthday party theme !! Make your own cow by taking a medium-sized rectangular box for the body and a white balloon for the head (use paper for the ears, a cup for the nose, and paper towel tubes for the legs). Paint the paper towel tubes white and use a black magic marker or paint to make the spots on the head and legs. Then you can add water (or even milk!) to a few Latex gloves for cow utters. Poke a tiny hole in the glove fingers so that the kids can start milking.
*Rope the Pony: Make two pony heads on broomsticks and stick them into the ground or pails of hay. Create two Lassos out of hools-hoops and ropes. Then form two teams and have a rodeo to see which team can rope their ponies first.
*Wild Bill: In the invitations you send out, you can say that Wild Bill is wanted for stealing a huge loot. You need a friend who is willing to dress up as bad-guy Wild Bill. This event will be the highlight of your western birthday party theme.
Throughout the whole Western birthday party theme, tell everyone to be on the look out for Wild Bill. Then about half way through the party, gather all the kids in a certain area and make sure they all have their water guns filled.
Then have Wild Bill come running down the street towards the house, and yell out (or have someone yell out) "OH NO!! ITS WILD BILL !!!". This gets all of the kids charging towards him squirting him and trying to grab a bag out of his hand (beforehand put all the goodie bags in a burlap sack and give them to Wild Bill).
Then they all get their goodie bags and lead Wild Bill to the jail you made. This can be quite hysterical!!! You can then have Wild Bill sit in a western theme decorated area and each kid can sit on his lap and have their picture taken.
This event will long be remembered by the birthday party child and friends!
*Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest: Just have the kids line up and see who's mouth propellants are strongest…
*Rattlesnake Ruckus: Place some dried beans into a small plastic bottle (such as a film canister). Then place the bottle inside a sock and stuff the sock with newspapers (or some sort of cool surprise), tying the end off. Seat the kids in a circle and toss the "rattlesnake" around the circle to music (similar to the hot potato game). When the music stops the one bitten by the rattlesnake (the kid holding the rattlesnake) is out of the game. The last kid gets to open the sock and have the surprise jump out at him. This western birthday party theme game builds excitement and ends with laughter.
