  4. Call the Princesses together and tell them that they need to find Cinderella's lost slipper.
  5. Whoever finds the shoe with the slipper inside is the winner.

If you want everyone to win a prize you can always be a little sneaky and put a slipper inside each of their shoes and once someone finds a slipper they are out of the game (so they can't find any more and claim more prizes!). That way everyone finds a slipper and wins a prize.

The Princess and the Dragon Eggs

Suitable age range: For princesses ages 3+

This is 'part 1' of two consecutive princess party games which the princess will love (you can always add to the story to make more parts ;-). Part 2 (Dragon Pinata Egg Hunt) is explained after this game...

This is a very sweet 'treasure hunt' type princess game with a lovely little story to get all the knights, princes and princesses hunting high and low looking for a cure to break a curse and save the birthday princess

Instructions:

  1. Hide the golden dragon eggs around the house or garden and hide one for each party guest.

  3. Tell the princesses, knights and princes that in order to save the princess, they have to go in search of these magical dragon eggs, find and bring ONE EACH back with them to the princess until all the eggs have been retrieved.

The Dragon Eggs story outline - "Princess ........ (the birthday girl's name) was loved by everyone in the kingdom, especially the princesses and knights. The only person who didn't love her was an evil old witch who was jealous because everyone hated her. So, she decided to splash Princess ........ (the birthday girl's name) with a potion that made her invisible. The only way to break the spell was to bring the Princess some magic Dragon Eggs. The dragon was enormous and lived on the other side of the kingdom far, far away. He didn't like sharing his eggs with anyone so he always hid them.

Since the knights, princes and princesses loved Princess ....... so much, they all went on a quest to find the dragon's eggs and bring them back to Princess ...... (the birthday girls name) . They looked everywhere and then finally found them. They brought them to the princess and she was cured of the witches curse. The Princess was so happy at having the curse lifted that she threw them all a big party to celebrate.

Making Dragon Eggs - These are very simple to make yourself by painting or coloring a batch of hard boiled eggs (spray-painting them with gold paint is the quickest and easist and looks great!)
