Kids Birthday Ideas - Bob The Builder Game Ideas
This Bob the Builder game is very similar to an egg toss game or water balloon toss. To make the "rocks," take grey socks and fill them with a handful or two of rice or dried beans. Use rubber bands to seal the socks and hold down the ends so they don't flap.
Have each child select a partner, and give each pair a "rock." The children will begin by standing a foot or two away from their partner.When you say "toss!" the children will toss their "rock" to their partner, who has to catch it.
If they catch the "rock," they stay in the game, but if they drop it, the pair is "out." The pairs who are still in the game each have to take a large step backwards.
As the game continues, the children get further and further away from each other. The last pair remaining in the game wins.
This Bob the Builder game is a fun variation on the game "Simon Says." To begin, give the child calling out the commands a construction helmet to put on his or her head. He or she is the "foreman."
As the foreman, they call out construction-themed commands the children are to follow, such as "Foreman says, hammer down a nail!" "Foreman says, dig with a shovel!" and "Foreman says, saw a board!" The children pantomime the movements of the command until the "foreman" says "stop!"
If the "foreman" does not begin a command with "foreman says," the children have to remain still. Those who move are "out." The game continues until there is one child left, who is then the winner.
To play this Bob the Builder game, divide the children into two or more teams, depending on how many children there are.
Give each team a large plastic bag or box filled with "work" clothes, including a pair of jeans or overalls, a tee shirt, a flannel shirt, a pair of socks, a belt, a tool belt, goggles, work gloves, work boots, plastic tools to put in the tool belt, a construction hat, and a handkerchief.
The goal of the game is for each team to dress their construction worker as quickly as they can. Each team picks a team mate to be the construction worker.
Before you say "start!" explain that when dressing the construction worker, all buttons have to be fastened, all laces have to be tied, and all belts have to be buckled. The team that finishes dressing their "construction worker" first wins the game.

Depending on the number of children, divide them into two or three equal teams and have each team stand in a single file line. Place an orange cone or another object directly in front of each team, about 100 feet away.
Tell the the children at the front of the line to get down on their hands and knees. Next, tell the children that when you say "go!" the child right behind them is to lift their ankles so they can "race" on their hands to the cone and back.
When they get back, the child holding the first child's ankles becomes the "wheelbarrow," with the person standing behind them holds them up and races them.
Each child will get to be a wheelbarrow, and the team who finishes first wins.
No Bob the Builder party would be complete without an activity that lets children build to their heart's content.
Designate an area as a "construction zone" with tables covered with newspaper, boxes containing "building materials" such as pipe cleaners, beads, buttons, bottle caps, straws, cotton balls, and scraps of paper and cardboard, and play dough or air drying modeling clay. You can also place bottles of glue on the table as well.
Arrange the materials along the tables so all children will be able to take what they need. Encourage the children to use their imagination by suggesting that they create a new type of building machine. When they are done, place them on another table covered with newspaper to dry.
