Waiter Game

Waiter Game is one of the fun kids birthday and multiplayer games for kids.

It's not easy balancing a ball while racing against another team.

You'll find out as you try to beat the other players to be the winner.

This can be played indoors or outdoors.

Before You Start

8 or more players
Ages 6 and up
Need: sturdy plastic plate, table tennis ball


Divide the kids into 2 teams of at least 4 players.

If you don't have 8 kids, do two teams of 2 or two teams of 3.

Each team picks a leader.

The players line up behind their leaders, leaving about an arms length space between them.

The leader gets a table tennis ball on a sturdy plastic plate.

After hearing, "One, two, three, GO!" the leader, holding her plate with one hand, turns facing her teammates and has to weave between them without dropping the plate or ball.

If either the plate or ball falls to the ground, the player has to pick both of them up and start over from the beginning.

After the player reaches the end of his team's line, he runs back to the front of the line and gives the next player the plate and ball.

He then goes and stands in the back of the line while the new waiter weaves in and out of his team's line, trying to keep a steady hand.

Each player gets to be the waiter. The first team that accomplishes this the fastest wins.

Players are not allowed to fold their plates up or in half so the ball stays on the plate.

They must hold the plate by placing their hand or fingers on the bottom of the plate.

Vary it up by allowing the kids to use both hands to hold the plate.

Plates must be straight, no folding allowed.
