When planning a party with a princess or mascot character, the most important thing is to make sure that the character feels like part of the event and that they're not just a side attraction. The best way to do that is to incorporate them into the games and activities that you plan. Here are five games that will have your guests laughing, cheering, and having a blast with your princess or mascot character.


Game 1: Enchanted Treasure Hunt


Age group: 4-12 years old

Number of players: 6-20

What you'll need:

  • Small trinkets or toys (one for each guest)

  • Treasure boxes or bags

  • Clues for the treasure hunt (written or printed)

  • A designated area for the treasure hunt (backyard, park, or a large room)

How to play:

  1. Before the party, hide the treasure boxes or bags with the small trinkets or toys around the designated area. Make sure to have one treasure for each guest.

  2. Write or print out clues that will lead the children to the treasures. The clues can be riddles, puzzles, or simple directions. For a princess party, you can make the clues rhyme like a fairytale, and for a mascot party, the clues can be related to the mascot's theme.

  3. Divide the children into teams, with the princess or mascot character leading one of the teams. If you have more than one character, each can lead a team.

  4. Hand out the first clue to each team, and let the treasure hunt begin! The princess or mascot character can help their team decipher the clues and find the treasures.

  5. The first team to find all of their treasures wins the game!

Pro Tip: Customize the treasures and clues based on your party theme. For example, for a pirate-themed mascot party, you can hide gold coins or pirate themed trinkets and use pirate-themed clues.



Game 2: Royal Ball Dance-Off


Age group: 4-12 years old

Number of players: 6-20

What you'll need:

  • Music playlist with a variety of dance songs

  • Dance floor or designated area for dancing

  • Optional: Disco ball, lights, or other decorations to set the mood

How to play:

  1. Set up your dance floor or designated area for dancing. If you have decorations like a disco ball or lights, now's the time to set them up.

  2. Have the princess or mascot character lead the children in a dance warm-up, teaching them a few simple dance moves that they can use during the dance-off.

  3. Divide the children into two teams, with the princess or mascot character leading one team. If you have more than one character, each can lead a team.

  4. Start the music and have each team take turns performing their best dance moves. Encourage creativity, teamwork, and most importantly, fun!

  5. Once all the children have had a chance to dance, the princess or mascot character can choose the winning team based on their energy, creativity, and teamwork.

Pro Tip: You can also make this a dance battle between the princess or mascot character and the children, with the adults or older kids acting as judges.



Game 3: Mascot Musical Chairs


Age group: 4-12 years old

Number of players: 6-20

What you'll need:

  • Chairs (one less than the number of players)

  • Music playlist

  • A designated area for the game

How to play:

  1. Set up the chairs in a circle, with one chair less than the number of players. Make sure there's enough space for the players to walk around the chairs.

  2. Have the mascot character start the music and instruct the children to walk around the chairs while the music is playing.

  3. When the mascot stops the music, the children must find a chair to sit in. The player left standing is out of the game.

  4. Remove one chair and repeat the process until only one player remains. That player is the winner!

Pro Tip: For a princess party, you can replace the chairs with "royal thrones" by decorating them with tulle, ribbons, and other fancy materials.



Game 4: Princess & Mascot Relay Race


Age group: 4-12 years old

Number of players: 6-20

What you'll need:

  • A variety of relay race props (hula hoops, cones, pool noodles, etc.)

  • A designated area for the relay race (backyard, park, or a large room)

How to play:

  1. Set up a relay race course with the props you've gathered. The course should have different stations with various challenges or obstacles.

  2. Divide the children into two teams, with the princess or mascot character leading one team. If you have more than one character, each can lead a team.

  3. The first player from each team must complete the course, then tag the next player in line. The race continues until all players from one team have completed the course.

  4. The first team to have all of their players finish the course wins the game!

Pro Tip: Customize the relay race obstacles based on your party theme. For example, for a superhero mascot party, you can have the children crawl under "laser beams" (strings) or leap over "buildings" (cardboard boxes).



Game 5: Pin the Tail on the Mascot


Age group: 4-12 years old

Number of players: 6-20

What you'll need:

  • A large poster or printout of the mascot character (with a missing tail)

  • Cut-out tails with adhesive (one for each guest)

  • A blindfold

  • A designated area for the game

How to play:

  1. Hang the poster or printout of the mascot character on a wall or easel in the designated area.

  2. Give each child a cut-out tail with adhesive on the back.

  3. Blindfold the first player, spin them around a few times, and guide them towards the mascot poster.

  4. The player must attempt to stick the tail in the correct spot on the mascot while blindfolded.

  5. After all the players have had a turn, the player whose tail is closest to the correct spot on the mascot is the winner!

Pro Tip: For a princess party, you can play "Pin the Tiara on the Princess" instead. Just replace the mascot poster with a princess poster and the tails with tiaras.
