Having a BALL!

      Pass the parcel is a popular British party game and as most of you know, I love ALL things British so I love to play it often at parties. My favorite way to play this party game however is with a Surprise Ball! Or as the company Tops Malibu calls it, SurPRIZE Ball. Surprize Balls are created from 100 ft of colorfully changing paper ribbon with lots of fun treasures. As the crepe ball unravels, surprises and gifts spill out of each layer. Fun right? I think this is just a perfect game you can conduct yourself for both boys and girls ages 4 and up.

      Here is how you play:
      The children sit in a circle while music plays and pass the parcel/ball around until an adult stops the music. Whoever is holding the parcel when the music stops gets to open one layer of paper and gets to keep the treasure that is revealed. You would just need to make sure that there was one layer to open with a treasure for each child playing. The Tops Surprize Balls offer 3 inch balls with 5 prizes and the deluxe 4 inch balls that has 11 prizes. Play as long as each child has a turn unwrapping and getting the surprise!

 I love the different themed decorations.
