Pass the Parcel

by Julia Gorham

An absolute must party game and best traditional game for your children to enjoy to music with a hidden present for the child who unwraps the last layer of wrapping!!


You will need:

  • A small gift (a nice idea when you are doing this with a group is a bottle of bubbles to blow: because it is something they can all enjoy afterwards)
  • Wrapping paper or newspaper
  • Sticky tape
  • Music to play

To do:

  • Wrap a small gift with many layers of wrapping paper
  • Gather the children in a seated circle
  • Play lively music and ask each child to pass the parcel
  • The parcel can only be passed when the music is playing
  • As soon as the music stops, the child unwraps one layer of the parcel and then passes it on to the next child.
  • The reward will be the last unwrapped layer, with a special surprise!
