Pin the Tail on the Dragon
- Poster or a drawing of a dragon

This is a great game to get the party started! You can purchase a poster of a dragon or bring out your creative side and make one with construction paper. Use the construction paper and cut out stripes for the dragon tail. Write the names of each child on their dragon tails and place a piece of tape on the back. Blindfold the player, spin them three times and guide them toward the poster. The player to get the dragon tail closest wins a small prize.
Beyblade Relay Race
- Beyblade spinning toys 1 for each guest
Split your guests into two teams. You or another parent helper can stand across from the two teams. When you say “GO” the first two members of each team runs toward you. Once they reach you they spin their Beyblade toy and pick it and run back to and tag the next member of their team. The team to get all members through the relay the fastest wins a small prize and or gets to keep the toys used in the game.
Egg in Spoon Race
- Hard boiled eggs (1 for each guest)
- Beyblade stickers
- Egg Dyeing kit
After boiling and cooling eggs place Beyblade stickers on each egg. Dye eggs in desired color and remove stickers once dry. Give each guest a spoon and place an egg on top. Mark a start line and a finish line. Have the players all line up, when you say “GO” they race to the finish line. The player that makes it to the finish line first and without dropping the egg wins a prize.
Hot Beyblade Battle Top
- Beyblade battle top of your choice
Turn an ordinary game of Hot Potato into a fun themed game! Simply have all your guests stand in a circle. Turn on some fun party music and have them pass the Beyblade battle top around. The person holding or the last person to touch the battle top when the music stops is out. This goes on until there is only one player left and that player wins the battle top.
