Gymnastic Parties Held at the Gym Club
The easiest route is to check with your local gymnastics club. Most gyms have the option of holding birthday parties at the facility on weekends. There will be a fee to host a party but it’s cheaper if the birthday guest of honor is a member of the gym. The gym will have staff members available to coordinate activities and games that will include use of the equipment. The staff members should be certified coaches that can ensure the safety of the children. The kids will have a ball!
You will need to supply the decorations, food, cake, and goodie bags. The time frame for parties held at a gym is around 2 hours.

Gymnastics Games & Activities
Handstand Contest – A contest to see who can hold a handstand the longest. A variation to this can be to see who can walk on their hands the farthest.
Balance Beam Contest – Set a balance beam close to the floor and have everyone get on the beam with one foot on the beam and one foot off. See who can stay on the beam the longest.
Pin the Medal on the Gymnast – Get a blown up picture/ poster of a famous gymnast and put it on a wall. Mark with an “X” the spot where the medal should be. Blindfold the gymnast, spin them around 3 times and have them “pin” (using tape) the medal on the gymnast. When all guests have had a turn, the person who comes the closest is the winner. You can make the medals out of colored construction paper.
Gymnast Says “….” – This is a variation of the Simon Says game. The birthday gymnast or whomever is hosting the party will instruct the guests to do gymnastic moves by saying: “Gymnast Says do a back walkover” and the guests will have to follow the instruction. But, if the instructor does NOT say “Gymnast Says” before telling everyone to do a cartwheel and the guest does the cartwheel anyway, that person will be eliminated from the game. Play until there is one last gymnast standing!
Gymnastics Relay Race – Divide your guests into teams of four people each (depending on the number of guests) and have them do various gymnastics moves. For example, the first person can be a cartwheel, they will tag the next person on their team and they will have to do a round off, third person a front walkover, fourth person a back bend. Whatever team finishes the race first is the winner. The possibilities are endless.
Photo Booth – Photo booths are gaining in popularity as a great activity for parties. Everyone will love to take pictures with props and it will be a keepsake to take with you for lasting memories!
