Hungry Caterpillar Party Games


Caterpillar Tag

This is a fun tag game for when you are outside or have plenty of space to run.  Players line up and hold hands to make a long line or caterpillar.  They can not let go of each other's hands for any reason.  The first person in line is the Caterpillar head and they try to tag the last person in line or the Caterpillars tail.  When the first person has tagged the "tail" then the "tail" comes to the front of the line and becomes the "head".  Continue until everyone has had a chance to catch the caterpillar's tail.

 

 

Caterpillar Hula Hoop Game

This is an easy to learn, but challenging game that all kids love to play!  You will need 2 teams of players and a hula hoop for each team. 

The players from each team hold hands and form a large circle standing up.  A hula hoop is given to each team and they have to move the hula hoop around the circle and through each player.  Players can not let go of the other players hands during the whole game. 

Play in teams, or have fun playing as one large circle. 

 

 

Caterpillar Movement Game

This is a great party game for kids of all ages!  The object is to move the team, or the caterpillar, from one side of the game area to the other side using pieces of cardstock to step on.   Divide players into 2 equal teams.  Give each team 1 more piece of cardstock then there are players on the team.  For example if there are 7 players on a team, give the team 8 pieces of cardstock (or 8 x 11" paper will also work).

 

Players line up in a line.  The first person in line will lay a piece of paper on the ground and then step onto it.  Then another piece of paper is passed from the back of the line to the front, the first person in line lays that piece on the ground and the whole team moves forward.  Keep doing this until the whole line is taking a piece of paper from the back of the line, passing it to the front, laying it down and stepping forward.  The first team to make it across the playing field wins!

 

 

Caterpillar Balloon Race
This fun party game uses balloons placed in between players stomachs and backs to create a caterpillar.  Line teams up and give each player (except the first player in line) an inflated balloon.  Have the players place their balloon between their stomach and the back of the player in front of them.  The teams must hold the balloons in place during the race without using their hands.  Teams must carefully move across the game area and back to the starting point without dropping a balloon.  If a team drops a balloon they must all run back to the start and begin again. 

 

 

Caterpillar Tube Game
Newspapers or cardstock / tape
For this fun party game each team will need a large tube of paper.   Lay the paper end to end and tape the pieces together.  When you have 25 - 30 pieces taped together then tape the ends so you have a large circle or tube.  Make one tube for each team.  The players on each team will carefully get into the tube and stand on the paper in a line.  Slowly the first team member will take a step forward and the rest of the team must follow close behind them.  The paper overhead will move forward as the team moves forward.  The first team to make it to the finish line wins.

 

Hang the head on the caterpillar!

Cut green circles out of paper and paste them in the shape of a caterpillar onto a big piece of paper. Give each child a red circle to put as the head of the caterpillar. To make this even harder, blindfold the children!
