2. Chansey's Egg Race

At every Pokemon Center, you'll find Nurse Joy and the Pokemon 'Chansey'. It's a cute, pink Pokemon that helps heal others and has a little egg in a pouch on it's stomach.


Have the kids play this game just like a classic egg race where they balance an egg on a spoon. Be careful just like Chansey -- take care of the egg and don't let it fall!


Use a household spoon and a real egg -OR- try this colorful wooden 'egg race' kit and skip the mess!

3. Psyduck Says

Play this game just like 'Simon says'! Tell the kids you're going to use 'confusion attack' (don't worry, they'll get it) on them and try to make them mess up!


4. Water Type Gym Battle

A perfect summer activity, or for those of you who are lucky enough to live in warm areas... Have some water balloons on hand and call for a water type gym battle AKA water balloon fight -OR- a water balloon toss.


5. Pokemon Piñata

Have the kids pretend to be a Farfetch'd as they use 'pound' attack on the piñata with their leek!

Buy on Amazon (click here to buy) These cute little charms are perfect for Croc-loving kids, but you can add them on normal shoes, too! Just tie them to your laces.


10. Pokemon Trading Cards

Kids LOVE collecting Pokemon trading cards because they're fun to battle with and trade!


We suggest getting a booster pack for each goody bag, but that can be pricey. A cheaper alternative would be to buy a stack of random cards and pop a few in each bag. Just make sure they don't get bent or creased!
