Ideas for games, activities and entertainment to set up on the circus theme:

Guess the number …

Here’s a fun game to set up on your birthday. Prepare a nice jar filled with candies of your choice: make a mixture of all kinds of candies, colored, sweet or tangy… Place this jar on your table and ask each child to write their first name on a sheet of paper with the number of candies he considers in the jar… Children put their paper in a small box… Before the end of the party, take the time to read aloud the amount of candy proposed by each child. Then indicate the actual quantity… The child closest to the good result can leave with the jar of candies!


Who says circus, says make-up… Suggest to children who wish to make up. The make-up will of course be on the circus theme: a clown, a tamer with a mustache or an animal that can be found in a circus: tigers often have great success!

The tamer’s mustache…

Don’t ask me why a tamer is often depicted with a mustache! I know absolutely nothing about it, but it is true that this is often the case in the pictures or in the books on the subject of circus! So here is a simple and fun game to do easily with children… Cut in advance about 7 cm woolen threads… Distribute one to each child. These ones will have to wedge it between their nose and their upper lip which will make everyone make a funny face… But the goal is to keep his seriousness because he will have to maintain his mustache as long as possible. The winner will have a small gift… But be careful because if we laugh, we risk losing his mustache and therefore the game!


Organize a mime game… It always appeals to children… In this game we will keep the theme of the circus. The goal will therefore be to mimic an animal in the circus: lion, elephant, monkey, horse… All the animals that can be found in a circus can be mimed. Save time by preparing a short list in advance.

Acrobatic games:

All the games with acrobatics will make children laugh while adapting wonderfully to the circus theme. Thus, you can play the tightrope walker by setting up a course where it will be necessary to be balanced for example on a bench or a wooden beam… You can make the game more complicated according to the age group by putting in their hands a glass of water to the brim (if you are outdoors)… The child who has the glass with the most water on arrival has won…

Balancing competition:

Give the children simple instructions to follow such as getting one leg stand, then hopping, then put one hand and one foot on the ground and the other hand and foot aloft…

As soon as a child loses he is eliminated… The last child is declared the winner!

Tips for organizing a circus birthday party game:

With all these previous ideas, you will be able to organize an incredible and memorable birthday party on the theme of circus!

Remember to bring a few red noses, decoration for snack, small gifts for all the children, all complemented by a police investigation and animations and games on the theme of the circus. The children will keep an unforgettable memory of this day. Use the photobooths provided in the birthday party set to organize a fun souvenir photo session! Make-up, disguise, indoor games or in the garden if the weather is nice … You have enough to keep the kids busy all afternoon! Find more ideas on Pinterest.
