Heads up, seven up

Heads up, seven up

Heads up seven up is a fun kids birthday party game that will have your kids guessing and laughing in no time. Great for large or small numbers, this kids activity will keep your children wanting to play it again and again.


Number of players:


Seven children stand at the front of a room or outdoor space.

The remaining children lay their heads on their lap (or on a table) with their eyes closed (no peeking!) and a fist made of their right hand where someone can reach it.

The seven walk around the room and each one chooses a person and touch their fist.

Once a person is touched, he/she sticks his or her thumb up out of their fist so they are not selected twice.

When each of the seven have touched someone, the seven say “heads up seven up” in unison and each child with a thumb up gets one chance to guess which of the seven touched him/her.

If they guess right than they change places.

If they guess wrong, the same person gets to stay up.

Repeat as many times as they’ll let you.
