Do You Need Irish Song Lyrics for Your St. Patrick's day? We Found Them

Want to know the words to your favorite Irish Song or Irish Pub Song for St. Patrick's Day?

I spotted this site with lyrics to a variety of Irish Songs.

Want to turn the lyrics into a game? Let take songs that you and your friends think you know by heart. Print out a master list of lyrics for yourself and then create a list of songs that include only the first verse of a song.

Then invite contestants up to test their skills. Invite everyone to start singing one of the Irish songs and then at the end of the first verse the person (contestant) must sing the next verse. They win if they get it right. (You decide the prize!)

Have Fun

Mystery Gift Pass - Will Keep Your Birthday Party Guests Guessing

Looking for a different kid's birthday party game other than Musical Chairs and Pin the Tail on the Donkey? Well then check out our Mystery Gift Pass Game

Well a while back I put together the idea of making Pass the Gift / Pass the Parcel a little more action oriented.

In the standard Pass the Gift game you pass the gift until the music stops and then unwrap a layer of the game and the person to unwrap the gift the last time gets the gift inside the box. It is a fun game in itself, but we thought it could be more fun.

So we came up with Mystery Gift Pass and the idea to add a surprise to each unwrapping by placing actions or extra prizes in the mix. This really makes the game much more interesting as you might have to Talk like Donald Duck or Hop on one Foot or Do a charade, etc...

This way every time you unwrap a layer of the gift, you don't know what your going to get. If you like this idea get more details at Mystery Gift Pass Game and if you are still looking then check out our site for more Birthday Party Games.

For kids and outdoors, why not set up a St. Patrick's Day Treasure Hunt and find the Leprechaun's Gold. Be creative have fun and don't forget to hide the gold.

Classic Baby Shower Game - Measure Mommy

One of the simplest and fun to play baby shower games is Measure Mommy.

Take string, yarn or toilet paper and ask each guest to take off the amount that will fit around the Mommy’s body, however don’t state what part of the body. See the variations for more.

Simple and fun tell guests to select a length of string, yarn or toilet paper that will fit around the mommy’s body. Be specific “mommy’s body” avoid saying belly as this is the catch as most people will think that is what you mean.

Once everyone has selected their amount you now have a choice you can choose the classic measure around the belly or you can change it up.

Without saying anything, measure the part of the body that will apply for the game.
Traditional and fun: Mommy’s belly
Untraditional options: chest, calf, head, ankle, hips

Once you have the measurement, measure against guests string, yarn or toilet paper lengths and the person closest to the real measurement wins.

This game takes 5 - 12 minutes to play and can be played by men, women and children!

This is one of over 50 baby shower games we feature on Party Game Ideas, your source for 100's of do it yourself party games.
