Troll Color Transfer
Skittles or M&M candies, straws, paper plates
The object of the game is for players to transfer their assigned candy
color to their plate.
Set out a large plate full of candies and give each player a small paper
plate and a straw. Assign each player a color of candy that they
will be transferring to their plate. Players will take their straw
and place it over a candy then suck up the air in the straw so the candy
is lifted until they drop it onto their plate.
Set a timer for 2 - 3 minutes or play until one player transfers 20
* We found that the straight straws work better in this game then the
Troll Treasure Hunt
Items to hide in bright colors - Plastic eggs work great!
Party guests search for hidden treasure in their assigned color of the
You will need at least 10
of each item in each color of the rainbow. Before the party hide the items
around the party room, backyard or park. Assign each guest a color
and give them a set amount of time (5 - 10 minutes) to find their
color of treasure. The kids can only touch the hidden items that
are in their color.
The party guest that collects the most items after the time limit wins!
Kids love this Trolls birthday party game so they may want to play a few rounds. To continue
after the first round .... remove half of the children to a room away
from the area where the items are being hidden. Have the remaining
children hide the items of the first group. Then call the first
group out to find the hidden items. Reverse the order so everyone
gets to hide the items and also gets to find them again.
Troll Pot of Gold Treasure Hunt
Instead of the Troll Treasure Hunt a great alternative is the Pot of
Gold Treasure Hunt. You can hide gold coins all over the play area
for the guests to find. On some of the coins write a number in
permanent marker and have prizes that correspond with that number.
So when a child finds a coin with a number they can turn it in for a
Or you can make a treasure hunt that leads guests through a series of
clues to find the pot of gold at the end. See the
Treasure Hunt for instructions and
Rainbow Troll Tag
Large area for the kids to play
This fun game's object is for the players
avoid being caught by the Bergen.
First: Choose a “Bergen” who will be it during the first round. The Bergen
stands in the middle of the play area. Next (without the Bergen hearing) assign
all the remaining players different colors of the rainbow. Red, orange,
yellow, green, blue and purple.
Players then line up on one side of the play area.
The Bergen troll catcher calls out a color.
All the players that
have been assigned that color try and run past the Bergen to the other
side of the play area. The Bergen tries to tag as many of
children as they can before they reach the other side. The kids who are
tagged become Bergen troll catchers and stand in the middle to help tag other
players on the next round. Sometimes the Bergen can yell
“Rainbow!!” and all the players must try and reach the other side. The
last person caught becomes the new Bergen and the game starts again.
Rainbow Rain Relay
Play outside because the kids
will get wet.
Fill the rain barrels (plastic tubs) with water and set them at the far
end of the course. Place two smaller see through plastic jars at
the starting point where the teams will line up for the game. Give
each team a white sponge (cloud) and tell them that one at a time they
will run to the rain barrel, get the sponge wet and then run back to
their jar and squeeze the water into it. Then the next person in line
takes a turn.
For younger children you can also play games like Candy Land and
