If your having a TinkerBell Birthday Party or a Pixie Hollow Games Party then get ready for some fantastic and “super-fun” games for all ages.
On our list of more than 20 TinkerBell games, you will find everything from Treasure Hunts to Music Games to have an awesome Tinkerbell Party. Although we start the party experience right from the beginning with the invitation, this is the part of the party that is the most fun (along with the prizes).
Part of a kids great birthday parties is the entertainment and what better way for kids to have fun than by playing party games. Whether you're looking for quiet or active games, games for toddlers or older children, musical games or relay races, we have something for everyone.
Plan your party with at least 2 or 3 games, keeping in mind the age group of your guests and the length of time of your party.
At our house, we had so many children (30 to 50) at times that we just had a Prize Table and as children won they would go to the table (with an adult) and choose a prize. If you’re having more than a handful of children, designate an adult to be the “Prize Giver” so you can attend to your guests.
Great kids birthday parties include fun games for everyone. Below are many different TinkerBell Games for all ages. SomeTinkerBell Games are more appropriate than others for the "little ones". There are some games that are great for girls and boys. There are gentler games, active games, games for younger guests and games for older guests. Review your guest list and choose games accordingly. Use a butterfly board (like in the Pixie Hollows Games movie) to keep score. Cut a rectangular board (about 24 inches long and 4 inches wide) out of cardboard or poster board, use different colored butterflies ($ store), each color to represent a guest or a team. Winning team or guest is at the top.
Before you begin this TinkerBell game, remind guests that it is 1 moonstone per guest. Let them know the safety rules and show them one of the moonstones so they know what they are looking for. You can play the game in various ways:
This is one of the TinkerBell games that your guests will really enjoy because the hunt if so much fun and a beautiful moonstone awaits. Happy Hunting!
Take scenes from the movies where there are a lot of characters in the scene. For example, in the movie "Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure" TinkerBell returns and presents the new scepter to Queen Clarion and her kingdom and then after the ceremony all go to the Pixie Dust Tree. This is a scene where everyone can participate. Give all 3 or 4 short lines, depending on the age of the guests. Examples:
Take simple lines from the movies and let the children ad lib, it is a party after all. Ask your child what their favorite song is and sing it at the end of the play. The 2 most upbeat songs are:
Other popular Tinker Bell songs are:
Below is a list of Tinker Bell Friends. There are plenty of characters and an unlimited amount of fairies, sparrow men and creatures that your guests can become. Make it short and interactive, so that all guests have an opportunity to perform. For example have everyone going to the Pixie Hollow Games or you can separate your guests into groups and act out some of the Pixie Hollow Tinkerbell games. Games like frog jumping or car driving or flying teacups. There is a lot to choose from. Watch the Tinkerbell movies for inspiration.
Another idea is to have the guests say what their "talent" is and then give them a simple scene and let them use their talent. Here is a list of TinkerBell movie characters:
This game is played like volleyball with no strict rules. Each team gets a point when the other team misses the ball and the team that gets 5 points first, wins. But everyone is a winner so maybe you could have regular prizes for the winning team and small prizes for the other team. If you are not giving out prizes then the winning team get to pick the next game and can mark off volleybug game on the butterfly scoreboard (if you're using a board-see paragraph above "frog race").
Begin by having guests color the 6 flags or you can make them ahead of time by taping 4 pieces of colored construction paper and then cutting out the shape. Glue onto a dowel or paint stirring stick and display them at your Pixie Hollow Games. Normally we would say "Let the best team win", but this is a birthday party and everyone should be a winner. At our parties we use to tell the children that they were not competing against one another so just to have fun and do their personal best. Give every guest a "pixie five" (same as a high five) and their prize as they complete the games. If you're not giving prizes (and thais is fine too), you can give each child a Pixie Hollow Games Certificate of Achievement. You can download this free Disney printable of the TinkerBell Games certificate at family.go and type "certificate of achievement" in the search space. The certificate is a really cute green maple leaf shape where you can write each child's name.
Watch the video below where you will see a parade of kindergartners in their box cars. Watch this video with your child and let her/him decide what they would like their boxcar to look like. We recommend for the younger guests to keep their box car down to a manageable size and keep the width of the car from being too wide so it is easier for them to move in. There are many different styles and shapes to get ideas from and they are all quite creative.
Which One Did Your Child Pick?
There are so many choices and ideas it's hard to decide isn't it? Let your child's imagination run wild! The good thing is that there is no wrong boxcar, the bad thing is, you have to figure out how to make it. Tip - Bring home a couple of different boxes and let them "try" it on for size. You might also want to have your child draw the boxcar she/he wants and color it. This way you'll have a better idea. This is a fun project to do together but keep all children away from sharp tools and objects.
If you want to keep it in the TinkerBell party theme think along the lines of a TinkerBell car with one of those large TinkerBell wall stickers on the hood or the doors or like her dress with green leaves and sparkle. Sparrow men may think of Terence, Rumble or one of the many other Pixie Hollow characters for ideas. Look at the Pixie Hollow Games movie for inspiration. Their cars are made of natural things found in the forest and some lost things like the comb on Terence's car, the salt shaker on Rumble's car or the gardening shovel on Rosetta's car. There are just so many possibilities and that's part of the fun. So after you and your child see the video come back for more decorating tips and additional details and instructions on how to play.
After you have cut the box into the shape you want this is where the fun begins. Decide on colors, decorations and details. This is a project that you and your child can do together (just keep any sharp tools safely away from those little hands).
Keep in mind that you will be making one for every guest, so the number of guests you are inviting is important to know. Make at least 1 car from a slightly longer box to fit 2 guests in case a surprise guest shows up.
In the movie, the car racers have 3 chances to pass their opponents. Racers can play it safe on the regular route or take a chance by taking these shortcuts which are a somewhat more challenging.
Make up your own "track" depending on the space available. How you play the game is decided by the age group of your guests and the space available.
Easy Race - Place colored tape on the ground of the starting line and another at the finish line. If space is small, make the race longer by having the children go to the finish line and then back again to the start line. Show your guests where the finish line is before they start and to begin on the word "go". Wave your checkered flags and begin the race! Pixie five (high five) racers as they cross the finish line and take picture of the racers as they cross the finish line. send their picture with the thank you note. Image courtesy of FtCarconPAO.
Obstacle Course Race - Place obstacles along the course that will make the race a bit more challenging such as :

13. Pin the Fairy on the Flower - This is the traditional "pin the tail on the donkey" game with a twist. This is one of the TinkerBell Games you can make at home or buy ready made online.
Homemade - Buy a white poster board and a pack of Disney Fairies and/or a pack TinkerBell stickers. Make sure you have enough stickers for all your TinkerBell party guests. Draw a big beautiful flower with a stem and leaves. You can use regular markers or poster board markers. Because this game is usually for younger guests make sure to draw the flower big enough to give them all a chance to pin the fairy on the flower.
Buy Pin the Fairy on the Flower game which comes ready to put up on the wall and play. Amazon usually carries it but is temporarily out of stock. Visit babyscholars.com (game currently in stock) to purchase the game for $10.76. Image courtesy of flickr-edenpictures.
Other Versions - Pin the Tiara on TinkerBell and Pin the Wand on TinkerBell.
14. Lost Things Hunt Version 1 - Instead of giving your guests their party favor or goody bags, turn it into a game. Hide the goody bags and let the guests hunt for them, like in an Easter egg hunt.
Lost Things Hunt Version 2 - TinkerBell games are so much fun like in this version where your guests get to hunt for their party favors. Hide party favor items around party area, give each guest a bag and have them hunt for the goodies. This bag becomes their party favor to take home. Here are some ideas for TinkerBell party items:
If inviting boys and girls:
Homemade BINGO Cards
First one to mark the bingo card in the selected pattern(s), gets to shout out "BINGO"! Because we like for all our guests to be winners, we like to continue playing until all children have their turn yelling BINGO. Shuffle the cards, give all your guests a new card and play again.
Custom Printable BINGO Cards
You have options on:
For our TinkerBell games we chose the 5x5 bingo card, chose "flower bingo" (pictured above) or "spring bingo" (pictured right - Notice that the spring bingo cards are both pictures and words, we chose the birthday girl's name Molly, Tinker Bell and the other fairies) under miscellaneous themes, color, all pictures, labeled it "TINK" and print. Then go back one screen and print "call out" sheet and cut. It's that simple. Go to www.dltk-cards.com/bingo and follow the instructions to make your own printable BINGO cards. Then come back to great-kids-birthday-parties.com for more TinkerBell Games.
Purchase TinkerBell BINGO Card Game
Whichever you choose, homemade, printable or purchased, your guests will have a flitterific time playing TinkerBell BINGO.
Get ready to show off your tiaras, hats, wings, wands or scepters, swords and/or costumes.
Costume Show- If you know ahead of time that all guests have a TinkerBell themed costume then ask them to bring their costume for a Pixie Hollow fashion show. If all of your guests don't have a costume then either provide costumes for all your guests or have a different dress up game for kids. For example, instead of having a costume show, you could have a:
Wings Fashion Show - Guests can bring their own wings, you can provide wings or they can make and/or decorate wings as a craft activity and then show them off.
Tiara Fashion Show - Guests can bring their Tiaras, you can provide the tiaras or they can make their decorate their own tiaras as a party craft activity and then show them off in the fashion show.
Tiara and Hat Fashion Show (if inviting girls and boys) - Same as above for girls and the boys can wear their Peter Pan hat, Captain Hook's hat, Terence's Acorn hat, or Sparrow man hat (Minister of Spring), or a pirate's hat. You could also call this the "Tiara and Hat Parade".
Dress up fashion games are a lot of fun and will add variety to your planned activities. Once you have decided on what kind of fashion show you will have, line up your guests, show them how to walk and then turn and continue walking across the "stage". There are 2 very important additional things to have at yur child's birthday party fashion show: Music - Have your child help pick out a few good songs to play during the show. Audience - You can't have a show without an audience. If there are enough adults and/or siblings to provide ample applause and cheers then you're all set for the show. Otherwise, line up some children's chairs and place your child's stuffed animals and dolls to watch the show. Videotape the fashion show and play the video for your guests. Everyone loves to see themselves on TV. Make dvd's of the fashion show and send it with your thank you card.

Before you start, set boundaries of where the children can run. Have all the kids together and pick one guest to be "It". Give the children a 5 second head start by having the "It" player count to 5 then start chasing the other children. The "It" player has to tag the other guests by stepping on their shadow. The first child to get her/his shadow stepped on becomes "It". The game continues with the new "It" player. Play long enough that every child who wants to be "It" has a chance unless there are a lot of children. If your guests are very young, try to keep the game short.
Play one or two TinkerBell songs or children's songs. You can pick either a song that has instructions in the lyrics like:
Or the leader can do different movements like flying motion, jumping, turning and bending as a fun song plays like:
Pick a leader and have the children follow and copy what the leader does. Pick one song that tells your guests what to do and then for variety pick a song that just sounds good for the game.
20. Winter Woods Crossing - This game is a party version of Disney's online game. The season is changing and winter is coming. Have children help Tinker Bell and Periwinkle find the lost animals in Pixie Hollow and take them across the bridge to the Winter Woods to prepare them for winter.
-Stuffed animals (1 per child) like rabbits and birds (dollar store) or print pictures of animals and glue them onto construction paper.
-5 sheets of brown (or favorite color) poster board (dollar store) for the bridge planks. Cut each sheet lengthwise in half to make a total of 10 plank pieces. These will make the bridge that the children and the animals need to cross. Make more if you have more than 10 guests. If the children are very young, cut the poster board into 3 pieces each.
-Mark an area by placing masking tape on the ground and some leaves and twigs to form a large rectangle like a bridge. Make sure area marked is as wide as the "planks".
For toddlers and young children have 2 volunteers pretend to be Tinker Bell and Periwinkle to guide children along.
How to Play
If you want to make the game longer the children can make a pretend winter habitat for their animal, like a nest for the bird. Make sure to have supplies available for this extra step. You can also have animal food which they have to look for like pretend seeds (can use popcorn or little pieces of crumpled of paper). Make pretend acorns by crumpling brown grocery bag paper into balls. Wet paper first so it's easier to for a ball shape. Make carrots out of orange construction paper with green top. Hide the animal food in the "Winter Woods" and have children hunt for the "food". Then place food with animals. Hooray! Everyone is ready for winter.
Prizes - Game prizes are not necessary but if you want to give something out, stickers are inexpensive and kids love them.
21. Lightball Challenge - This is the party version created by us here at Great Kids Birthday Parties. Lightball challenge is an Disney Fairies online game where a lighted ball is tossed back and forth much like volleyball but a slower pace, which is perfect for little ones and children's parties.
Object of the Game - Just like playing volleyball, one side hits the ball and the other side tries to catch it. If you miss the ball, the other team gets a point.
22. Teacup Photo Booth
Make a Teacup Photo Booth using a large cardboard box like this one from ikatbag. Draw and color teacup in bright colors and paint the background white or a contrasting color.
