Wish Upon a Star Party Games
like traditional tag except the player who is "it" holds a star shaped

- To play
this relay race game guests are divided into two teams. Each team
is given two large star shapes that are cut out of poster board. At a distance from where the
teams are lined up place two cones or objects that the players will have
to go around before they go back to their team. Players will use
only the two stars to move across the playing area - they will
have to put one star down, step on to it, then place the next star in
front of them, step on it and reach back to pick up the first star. The first team with all
of it's players completing the relay wins.
A fun way to play this
game is to have the whole team move at once. Give each team one
more star then they have players. They will have to work as a team
to get all the players standing on a separate star then move the back
star to the front so they can move ahead.
Star Treasure Hunt
Before the party hide lots of star shaped items (make from cardboard or
use plastic stars) all over the backyard or
area where the party is being held. When it gets dark give each
child a flashlight and tell them to search for the hidden items.
Provide sacks or bags for the kids to hold their treasure (use black or
dark blue paper bags and let the kids decorate them with stars during
the beginning of the party when guests are arriving). Write
numbers on the stars that correspond with prizes. After the
treasure hunt the party guests can trade their stars for prizes that
match the number on the back of their stars.
