Finding Nemo Party Games and Activities

  • Octopus - (great for a large group)
    The child who is it, wears the Special Fish Hat and stands in the middle of a large area. The others are all on the outside. The child who is it yells our one of the characters names, for instance the shark, Bruce. The other fish (children) have to run to the other side without getting tagged. If tagged they are eaten and attach hands with “Bruce” the shark. When holding hands they will eventually eat all the fish in the sea.
  • Find the Fish Eggs
    Just like an Easter egg hunt which kids love. Hide the plastic Easter Eggs and search to see which team can collect the most fish eggs.
  • Dory, Dory, Nemo!
    A play on words from the traditional game duck, duck, goose!
  • Water balloon toss
  • Finding Nemo
    Otherwise known as hide-n-go seek. (before playing, assess the area and age of the guests, you don’t really want a real game of Finding Nemo!)
  • Gill Says
    (Simon Says) except in the aquarium where Gill is the fish in charge.
  • Pin the Fin on Nemo
    Create the scene with Butcher Block Paper and card stock (fins) or Nemo Poster
  • Create paper plate fish and jelly fish! Use paper plates, google eyes, crayons, and streamers
  • Go Fishing
    Outdoors set up a kiddie pool and you can get kids size toy floating fish and a fishing reel
  • Blow Bubbles
  • Wet and wild slip and slide. Add bubbles to the slide area
  • Watch the Nemo Movie
  • If you are going swimming or in the water, I always make each child have a parent present, so they are then also responsible for their child’s safety. Be careful with the swimming parties!
