Rainbow Party Games

When I think of rainbows, I think of being outside. And to me, letting all the kiddos outside to play during the birthday party opens up a huge array of options!

  • Hide and Seek Skittles Hunt

Head to the store and buy a few bags of individually wrapped skittles. Hide them around the yard for the kids to find! Once you say go, let them all run around and try to find as many bags of skittles that they can! You’ll love their energy, they’ll burn off some of that sugar, and then be able to refuel with even more! 

Grab these free printable rainbow bingo cards and use rainbow jelly beans or buttons as markers!

  • Rainbow Ribbon Race

Have different colored pieces of yarn cut and ready for the kiddos. Make a starting line (that doubles as the finish line) and have two teams split up evenly, standing side by side.

Everyone gets a color of yarn and when you say “go”, the first kid runs to a designated area and back. When they cross the line, it’s the signal for the next kiddo to go.

  • The first group of “rainbow racers” to cross the finish line completely, wins! 

Planning and having a rainbow birthday party is so much fun! With this giant list of rainbow craft and rainbow foods, you should have no issues planning one of the tastiest, colorful and epic rainbow birthday parties ever!
