Your Kid Will Love Playing This Hot Pizza Game

Looking for a simple, yet fun, game for your child's next birthday party? This is it! This game requires little to no effort to set up, and is very easy to execute. It can be played as many times as your guests want, or until you run out of time!

Hot Pizza Game

Things you'll need:

A clean pizza pan, Frisbee or paper plate

When you're ready to start:

Step 1:  Have all the guests sit in a large circle.

Step 2:  Teach them this song, it’s sung to the tune of the Oscar Meyer jingle:

I wish I were a pepperoni pizza,
That is what I'd truly like to be,
For if I were a pepperoni pizza,
Everyone would be in love with me.

Step 3:  Give the “pizza” to the birthday boy or girl.

Step 4:  Tell the children to start singing the song when you say go, while passing the “pizza.”

Step 5:  The person holding the “pizza” when the song is finished is out, and gets to choose the topping to be sung for the next round.

Step 6:  The last child who isn’t out is the winner.

When Should I Schedule Games For During a Party?

Trying to plan out how your child's birthday party will go can be frustrating! It's for this reason that many parents forego hosting their own party and leave it up to a company or restaurant to do it. Planning a party doesn't have to be stressful.

Aim to schedule games for earlier in the party, when everyone is energized and ready to go. Try not to schedule games with lots of movement for right after everyone eats. This could lead to upset stomachs! Plan to have all of the scheduled activities wrapped up by the time gifts are to be opened. Gift opening is usually the last thing that happens at a birthday party.

Leave at least 20-30 minutes for gift opening, depending on how many guests are present. You'll want to ensure that your child is able to give each guest's gifts the attention they deserve, so nobody is left feeling like their gift is unappreciated. Allow 20-30 minutes for eating, as well. For a typical two-hour party, this will leave an hour for games and other activities.
