Backyardigans Party Games

  • "Pablo, Pablo, Tasha" - like duck, duck, goose, but using the names of the different characters. 
  • Dance-off competition - in the International Super Spy episode Pablo and Uniqua have a dance-off for the secret container.
  • Catching butterflies - give your guests binoculars or magnify glasses to see if they can spot any butterflies that the characters may be trying to catch. Or at night use little bug collectors to try and catch fireflies.
  • Build personal pies - keep on the lookout that no spies are trying to take your pies
  • Build a snow fort or blanket fort 
  • Play "ghost and seek" - like traditional hide-and-seek, but the seeking person pretends that they are a ghost by saying "ooooo" and "boo"
  • Tower of Power - two ways to play. First, give all of your guests lots of mini paper cups and see who can create the tallest tower. Second, use red plastic party cups and stack them face up with paper inbetween, trying to pull out the paper. 
  • Paint rocks - add cute pictures and saying that you can spread around your community to bring joy. 
  • Around the world scavenger hunt - have each item that the guests need to find relate to another country. Additional points if they can identify the country of origin. 
  • High tea - have tea cups and a basket full of sharpie markers to decorate and take home as a favor.
  • Battle between the volcano sisters - have mini short soccer cone pylons with half face up and half faced down. Half of the guests try to flip the pylon to look like an ice cream cone and the other half try to flip the pylon to look like a volcano. 
  • Build and design your own robot 
  • Create floatable boat and attach a balloon and see whose goes the furthest 
  • Pin the fire on the dragon - have your guests dressed up a knights and try to pin the fire on the dragon.
  • The great train race - the first person wear a conductors hat and everyone holds a hula hoop around their waist holding onto the hula hoop in front, creating a train. Have the trains set off to see who can make it through an obstacle course, collecting items they need to drop off at the train station the fastest. 

Backyardigans Party Episodes & Snacks

Play some fun music and have a dance to show off your best Backyardigans dance moves. Don’t forget about the snack. That’s the most important part! 

“We’ve got the whole wide world in our yard to explore! Now it’s time for us to have a snack! Meet you next time when we’re back.” -end backyardigans theme song.

Tasha, Uniqua, Austin, Pablo, and Tyrone all love going on adventures, but using all this energy makes them hungry. After playing lots of fun Backyardigan party games, all your friends may be tired too. At the end of most episodes, our characters go off and have a snack together. Sometimes these snacks are more healthy than others.

Below is a list of the various episodes and what snacks the characters eat:

  • Decorate your “snack” table with a Backyardigans party table cloth with matching plates, cups and napkins. 
  • You could watch an episode and eat the snack. 
  • You could choose snacks from your favorite episodes and create a snack table with little labels as to which episodes they are from. 
  • You could even play a game to guess what snacks are eaten during which season. 
  • You could choose an episode one and have it be your theme.
