Thomas The Tank Engine Birthday Party Ideas for Adam's 3rd Birthday
Date: 5 Jan 2015
Whether you’re looking for Thomas the Train birthday party games or just general train party games these non competitive games are perfect for toddlers and preschoolers (ages 2-6).
- Box train cars - This activity is both a craft and a game. You’ll need enough medium size cardboard boxes so that each child receives one. Fold the top and bottom inside so that it creates an open ended box in which the children can step into and hold the box around their waist.
Before the party, paint boxes blue and line them up like a train. To make it easier you can even Pre-cut train wheels, Thomas faces, windows, numbers, and other items. When guests arrive they use the arts and crafts supplies provided (paint, construction paper, glue, scissors, etc..) to build their own train cart.
Let all the projects dry and at the end of the party have all the children get into their train box and join together to form a train. You can then chug along together through the house, around the yard, or (if you’re on the brave side) around the neighborhood.
- Follow The Train - Played just like follow the leader. Line up the children and have the birthday child start as train (line leader). Everyone must follow behind the train and do as he/she does, such as skip, bunny hop, crawl, spin, walk backward, etc… After a minute or two blow the whistle (if you don’t have one you can just yell switch) and the caboose (last person in line) gets to come up to the front and be the train. Everyone else stays the same. Play until everyone has had a chance to be the train
- The Conductor Says.... - This game is played just like the traditional “Simon Says” but instead of Simon you say “the conductor says”. This would be really cute if you had a conductor hat, but you don’t have to. Line the children up facing the conductor. The conductor gives instructions such as “touch your nose”, “spin around in a circle”, and “reach for the sky”. If the conductor starts these statements with “the conductor says” the players have to do it, but if he doesn’t begin with the conductor says then they don’t do the action.
In a typical game if a child messes up they are out for that round, but you don’t have to play elimination. Just pay attention and after a few minutes pick the child who you think has been the best listener in the game to be the next conductor.
- Scavenger Train Hunt - This is a fun seek and find party game perfect for younger children. You’ll need print out of train carts. Hide the trains all over your playing area and have the children look to find them and line them up in the right order (locomotive first, caboose on the end). This is non competitive, and kids have a blast hunting down all the train carts. For extra fun have the child call out “Choo, Choo” every time they find one!
- Follow Those Tracks! - Create train tracks on the floor all through your playing area with easy to remove masking tape or painters tape. Have the children lone up on the tracks like a train and chuga chuga down the tracks until they arrive to the final destination. This could be the cake and ice cream table, favor / goodie bags, whatever you want. To make the game more interesting include detours, forks, signs, etc…along the way. They can sing a fun song along the way or just make fun train sounds, it’s up to you.
- Pin The Smoke Stacks on Thomas - This game is played just like the classic pin the tail on the donkey. Each child is blindfolded (with an included Thomas the train face mask) and must try and stick his or her smoke stack sticker in the correct position on the included Thomas the train poster.
We had three from the above games played during Adam's 3rd Birthday Party Celebration when we were also booked for themed activities aside from the theme decoration and candy buffet.
All the kids had their fun with the token prepared for all participants at the end of the game session. Aside from getting to mingle with their peers, the kids also got to learn to socialise, communicate and they even learn on how to tolerate each other during the game session, in a very casual and entertaining way.
