Train party game for ages 4 and up

This game is ideal with ten or more players.

The birthday child plus 3 more players link their arms together, forming a chain. The birthday child is the engine and the other three players form the rest of the train. If you have a conductor’s cap by all means place it on the engine’s head. The train must not let go of each other’s arms and must always move linked together in this manner. The other players (future cabooses) crawl around on their knees.

The engine moves around the room and tries to catch a caboose by forming a circle around a child. The cabooses try not to get caught and are allowed to move around on their knees until circled by the train. When one or more players are circled by the train and tagged by the engine, they must get up and link arms with the rest of the train and participate to help link up the rest of the players (cabooses). Future cabooses cannot ‘break out’ of the circle once it’s closed. The game is over when everyone is a part of the long train.

Do you hear a whistle blowing? Some kids will enjoy tooting while playing!

The party went really well. They seemed to enjoy themselves very much. Thank you for the opportunity to give a print-it party. I enjoyed giving one and may do this again sometime.

Thanks Lou Anne. The party was a success! We had 6 - 11 and 12 year olds, and they loved every minute of it. They didn't want to stop for cake, or opening gifts! Since we had 6 girls, we used Flossie as an extra. Noone had guessed the culprit, until it was revealed. Thanks again. Great Party!

Just thought I'd drop a line and say that the Missing Ring party was a success!! The girls loved it and it was quite appropriate for the occasion! Fantastic idea! I have passed your name around to the other mothers in case they are ever in need of party ideas. I love giving feedback to services that I feel are outstanding in their field. This, however, really took the cake (pardon the pun!) I look forward to having other parties in the near future from SimpliFun. Thanks again!
