This age group is our favourite to entertain. The games and activities are designed to be physically challenging, but they can be easily adapted to suit each individual party or event. Many of the games can be modified to play at home.

1. THE FLOOR IS LARVA

Half the kids start upstairs, the other half start downstairs.

The kids must try to climb around the entire GymBus without touching the floor.

party games2. NINJA RELAYS

Two obstacle courses are mapped out starting upstairs, using the equipment on the bus, through the downstairs level and back to the top.

The kids are divided into 2 teams.

One at a time, each team member sets off to complete the course.

The first team finished wins.

3. GYMBUS SOCK WRESTLING

In pairs or threes, each player puts a sock on one foot.

On ‘GO’, the kids try to get their opponents sock off.

4. NINJA REWIND

The kids start the game in different positions on the equipment.

When the music begins, they move anywhere around the bus.

When the music stops they have to reverse everything they have just done in the correct order.

5. NINJA TIME TRIALS

One child at a time races against the stopwatch to see how many seconds it takes to get all around a pre- determined course around the GymBus.

6. GYMBUS King and Queen of the Pole

GymBus has been timing how fast the kids can climb the fireman’s pole in the GymBus since 1994.

This game is always a hit with the kids

7. NINJA CHALLENGES

Climb around the entire Double Decker Bus without touching the ground

See who can climb the fireman’s pole the fastest.

Show a trick that no one has tried before

Invent a game that no one else has played

8. GYMBUS MYSTERY SCARECROW

One person is the tagger.

When you are tagged, you must stand like a scarecrow with your legs apart.

Anyone not caught, can free the scarecrows by crawling through their legs

To make the game a MYSTERY, no one knows who the tagger is!!

9. FOLLOW THE LEADER

Usually, the birthday child is leader; everyone else follows doing whatever the leader does. Can be played in groups of 2, 3 or more.

10. GYMBUS NINJA CHASEY

Everyone finds a partner

One of the partner’s counts, while the other partner runs away, then the chase is on.

Once the runner is caught, swap roles.
