Backwards Party Ideas and lots of them! Fun to plan…fun to attend!
As guests arrive, wish them “goodbye”
As guests leave, tell them “hello”
Have a name tag prepared for each guest…with their name spelled backwards. Call them this name throughout the party.
Ask guests what they want to be when they are a baby (rather than what they want to be when they grow up)
Serve cake at the beginning of the party, instead of at the end
Tell guests to wear their clothes to the party backwards, or inside out
Play Don’t Follow the Leader – do the opposite of what the leader does
Play Reverse Freeze Dance - when the music stops…dance. When the music plays…freeze!
Play Backwards Bean Bag Toss - Toss a bean bag behind you, over your shoulder
Have a somersault contest
Play soccer, but you can only kick balls with the heel of your feet
Have a relay race where you do crazy things, like kicking a ball and running while wearing a flipper!
The Mismatched Party:
I was recently part of a retreat for kids and one of the activities was a Mismatched Party. This is a fun similar idea to the backwards party ideas.
Kids were told to wear mismatched clothes. Everyone really got into it! If they forgot to bring something wacky, kids would just put their clothes on backwards, wear different shoes on each foot, and create a crazy hairstyle.
It was a lot of fun!
