Coloring activities are a great way to calm things down towards the end of your birthday princess party games, but they're also really useful for the beginning of the party to keep everyone entertained while waiting for all the guests to arrive.
There are lots of basic coloring activities such as this 3D coloring activity or this color-in jumbo jigsaw.
Alternatively, there are these cute 'Color You Own Mini Princess Purses' or these 'Color Your Own Fuzzy Tiaras'.
There are also some more unusual coloring based princess party games such as this 'color you own castle' or 'color your own carriage stand-up' which can also be used as part of your birthday party decorations.
Create a simple treasure hunt as part of your princess party games by having everyone search for hidden 'glass' slippers.
This 'kiss the fog' game is really cute - and a bargain at just $2! A variation of Pin the Tail on the Donkey which has been adapted to make it perfect for princess party games. Just take turns blindfolding each princess, spinning them around, then seeing if they can stick the pink lips on the mouth of the frog. Although I can't guarantee he'll turn into a prince if they are successful!
Turn musical chairs into musical thrones by dressing up some high backed dining room chairs.
Play 'Princess (name) says....' (a variation of Simon says)
Have all the kids decorate their own tiaras as part of the princess party games. This foam tiara craft kit (below left) comes 6 tiaras and 500 adhesive 'jewels' so they can personalize their tiara.
Similarly, you can decorate your fairy princess wands with this kit that includes 8 foam wands and various stickers and adhesive jewels.
Prepare a princess pampering area with glittery nail polish, kids lip gloss, princess tattoos (below) and mini manicure kits. Include a dress up area if they haven't come in costume.
You can also get some cute kits such as 'Make Your Own Lip Balm', 'Nail Art Salon Set' and an 'Ultimate Manicure and Pedicure Set' for kids.
Let everyone make their own princess necklaces with this foam jewellery activity (each kit makes 3 necklaces).
Hold 'princess training' workshops where you teach the kid's table manners, etiquette lessons and how to walk like a lady by practising with books on their heads.
If it's a costume birthday party, round off the princess pampering and training with a 'princess parade' with prizes or award ribbons for those with perfect poise, best tiara, most regal wave, etc.
You can get various princess themed awards ribbons to give out (below left and center) or pick up a 12 pack of general 'Winner' awards ribbons (below right) and let somebody be the winner each category. See here for awards ribbons.
Use this cardboard princess carriage prop (below left) as a photo opportunity. Take each child's picture posing as a princess in her carriage, then print them off and have them decorate their own photo frames to take them home in.
Alternatively, you could use these cute photo card holders as thank you notes after the birthday party and send them out with each child's photos in.
Hold cookie or cupcake decorating workshops. Perfect for rainy days or indoor princess party games! Use gummi sweets, jelly beans, M&Ms, and other candies to create jewelled cupcakes.
Alternatively, use this princess cupcake party kit (below left) which includes the cake mix and cupcake cups along with edible decals, edible watercolor sheets, food brushes and icing pens - everything you need to turn regular cupcakes into princess cupcakes.
Or there is this fairytale princess cookie kit (below right) which includes cookie mix that turns pink, icing, fairy dust sprinkles, cookie cutter and fairy wand.
This princess castle craft kit (below left) and card games (below right) are cheap and easy options to keep kids entertained. See here for both.
This scavenger hunt game should keep them busy. The kit comes with various character cards to hide and 8 search cards. Kids love scavenger hunts so what better than a princess themed one?
Don't forget to include a pinata in your princess party games. There are lots of different designs to choose from, such as the ones below.
Then get them to sit on different cushions with marbles hidden underneath some and see if they can feel them to determine who is a real princess.
