Big Foot Party Games
Big Feet Relay Races
Before the party make super big feet out of foam poster board.
Cut out large feet shapes (at least 2 feet long) from foam poster board.
In the center of each foot cut two holes horizontally about 4 inches
apart. Thread rope or twine through the holes. The
rope can be left long so that players will have a handle to hold or cut
off so that it will tie around the players shoes.
Have players pick teams (Big Foot, Yeti, Sasquatch) and line up one
after the other. On go the first player from each team runs with
their Big Foot feet to the other end of the playing field and back.
Then the next person on the team goes and so on until all players have
raced. The first team with all their players to finish wins!
Here are some fun variations to the relay races:
Have players race backwards for a second round!
Have players race sideways for a third round!
Set up an obstacle course that the players have to maneuver around with
their big feet.
Big Foot Marbles
Fill a small kiddie pool with water and at
least 50 marbles. Players must try to remove the marbles
from the pool using only their toes. Set a time limit and at the
end see who removed the most marbles. Play several rounds.
Squished Sasquatches is a fun variation of Hide and Seek, which of
course, is the perfect game for a Big Foot party! The basic
rules to Hide and Seek are that one person is "it" and hides their eyes
while the rest of the players go hide. The player who is "it"
searches and tries to find the hidden players.
The twist on this Hide and Seek Game is that "it" is the only one that
goes to hide at the beginning of the game. Everyone else
hides their eyes and counts to 100. Then the players go and
look for the Sasquatch. When a player finds the hidden Sasquatch
they hide with them. Then when another player finds the two
hidden Sasquatches they hide with them also and so on until all the
players are hiding in the same spot and are found by the last one
searching. The last one searching becomes the new Sasquatch.
Flashlight Hide and Seek
If the party is at night Flashlight Hide and Seek is a fun game for
kids, tweens and teens! Played like traditional Hide and
Seek only "it" has a flashlight that they shine on hidden players to
find them. The player who is found takes the flashlight and goes
to find another player that is hiding. The game can continue
without having to count and have everyone hide each time.
Players form into
teams and try to be the first team that goes from the start to the
finish point by using only a few pieces of paper or "icebergs".
Before the party create large icebergs from poster or foam board.
Pieces need to be at least 16" x 16". Each team will need
one more piece then the total number of players on their team.
Teams move in a single line together by only stepping on the icebergs.
Each player will begin by standing on an iceberg piece. The player
in the front of the line will take the extra iceberg and place it in
front of them. They will then, as a team, step forward onto the
iceberg that is in front of them. The player at the back of the
line will pick up the piece that they just stepped off of and pass it
down the line to the front player. And so on until the line has
moved down the playing field. Instead of large teams this game can
be played by giving groups of 3 - 4 players two large icebergs to move
with. Lots of fun and laughter!
Big Foot Party Activities
Sasquatch Scavenger Hunt
Set up a fun Sasquatch Scavenger Hunt around the neighborhood.
Before the party hide small objects (plastic feet, yellow Big Foot
Crossing signs, etc.) around the neighborhood and have players try to
find the objects. Send them out in teams or all together with binoculars (can be given as a party favor after the party)
to look for the items.
Variation: You could also set out clues for the party guests to
follow that lead them to the location of an adult or older sibling
dressed up as a Big Foot. Give guests whistles to signal when they
have found a clue so players can gather to read it and try to figure out
the next spot where a clue is hidden. This variation is easy
to set up inside. See our
Treasure Hunt page for more ideas.
Big Foot Selfie
Create a life size Big Foot (8 - 10 feet tall) out of cardboard.
Prop him up next to a wall inside and take pictures of each guest with
the Big Foot. Print out pictures and send as a thank you
after the party.
Or set up the cardboard Big Foot outside near some trees (luckily
without guests knowing) and take pictures of the guests during the party
with the Big Foot in the background. Send out as a thank you
and they will all be shocked that Big Foot was watching them the whole
Big Foot Nature
Let party guests make their own miniature forests for a fun craft that
can double as a party favor. Set out clear plastic
containers along with rocks, dirt, small plants and succulents and small
forest animal figurines. In the center make a path that has
Big Footprints on it going through the forest.
Big Foot Party Fun Ideas
Draw large Big Foot prints several feet apart that
lead up to the party entrance.
Set up signs around the party area and entrance that say "Big Foot
Bigfoot Party Food Ideas
Serve Bigfoot burgers - cut out
hamburger patties with a foot shaped cookie cutter. Cheese, fruit
and bread slices can also be cut out with the cutter.

the party and set up a cookie decorating station. Birthday guests
can decorate cookies with sprinkles and candies to take home with them
after the party.
