The games below are popular children’s games adapted to play on the GymBus and are designed to make your child’s birthday party, the best day ever. Most can be easily modified to play at home as well.

4. GYMBUS MUSICAL COLOURS

Each time the music stops, the entertainer calls out a colour and an activity like hang by one arm on something RED or lie on your tummy under something yellow.
5. NINJA SARDINES
GymBus Sardines is Hide and Seek in reverse, the birthday child and 2 others hide, whilst
everyone else counts. When each of the hiders are found… the finder hides with them, until there is only one finder left.
6. NINJA HIDE & SEEK
We all know how to play hide and seek.
7. GYMBUS SHARKS & MONKEYS
This game has been specifically designed for the GymBus, but could also work on playground equipment. The birthday child is the “Shark” everyone else is a “Monkey”. The “Sharks” can only catch the “Monkeys” if they are touching the ground. The “Monkeys” have to climb from ladders to ropes to monkey bars and from one level to the other. If they touch the ground they run the risk of being caught. Once caught they become a “Shark”. When there is only two Monkeys left everyone swaps roles and the game starts again.
