frog-prince-game-part-2

These game ideas continue the activities suitable for The Frog Prince themed princess party games outline in part 1 of game ideas for this story.

Having lost the ball in the pond, the princesses agree to have the frog visit and eat with them, in exchange for the frog retrieving their valued possession (the golden ball) from the pond.

The frog arrives at the princesses’ home, and games of hide and seek recreate the scene in which the princess tries to avoid the attention of the frog.

1 Hide and seek the princess

This game is a variation of ‘hunt the thimble’, in which a small object (used to be a thimble years ago) is hidden by half the guests and the other half of the guests have to find it. The hunting guests have to leave the room first while the hiding guest hide the object. When the hunting guests return they look around the room for the object. If needed the hunting guests can be given clues in the form of hot and cold, which means that a person is ‘hot’ if they are near the object or ‘cold’ if they are further away.

The object to hide could be a small princess doll or something related to the princess (small crown etc.) as the idea of the game is to recreate the princess avoiding the frog.

At some point the frog finds the princess and the story continues.

2 Dinner with the frog.

Not really a game but if at some point a tea party or snacks are provided, as a break from the activities, then a place (seat) for the frog should be set up. If a large toy frog can be obtained then it can occupy a place at the table.

Alternatively each princess can draw a picture of their own frog and place it beside themselves at the table, make sure that each princess is attentive to their frog during the meal as this was part of the agreement the princess made to the frog for retrieving her golden ball.

As with all these fairy story themed parties, drawing and craft activities are well suited and should be timed to give a break from the more active games. These craft activities are also a great way to begin the party as the guests arrive and the object created can be incorporated into the themed games. For example, in this story, the party guests could make cardboard fish when they first arrive and these can be used in the fishing game, noted in part 1 game ideas for the frog prince themed party.

3 Kiss the frog

In the frog prince story the frog turns into the prince having spent time in the company of the princess. The game of kiss the frog, which is a variation of pin the tail on the donkey, can be played to recreate the moment when the frog turns to the prince.

This game can be purchased or made. As it is relatively inexpensive I would recommend purchasing the game, but make sure it is ordered in time for delivery on the party day.

Conclusion

There are many party games and activities that can be related to the classic frog prince story as this fairy tale is acted out. The above games and those in Part 1 of the game suggestions should form a good basis for a party event based on this theme.
