Planning a graduation party is a lot of work, but it is fun work. However, because there are so many moving parts, it is easy to get overwhelmed. Luckily, there are tons of great party games that everyone can play. Graduation party games have always been a big hit, but how do you create an event that will stand out? We have everything you need for a memorable graduation celebration, from choosing games to getting your guests involved.
Here Are the Graduation Party Games for Everyone
Try these ten games instead of spending the last year of your student’s life standing around watching someone toss around a Frisbee.
“Guess Who” games are perfect for large groups and can even be played solo.
The “Mad Libs” game is sure to keep your guests entertained. Play Mad Libs by filling two blank lines with synonyms for words above them; then, turn the sheets of paper over and ask your guests to fill in the blanks with nouns below them. The guests with the most unique and fun responses will win a prize.
Pin the Tassel on the Grad Cap
“Pin the tassel on the graduate cap” is easy, and it is fun for all ages. Put on some fun music and get ready to give everyone at the party something to talk about besides that dinner they ordered.
Graduation parties can be fun, but sometimes, you have a lot of people over who do not really know each other. That is always something to keep in mind, and often a party game comes in handy. The game Charades is a classic for a reason. It is incredibly easy to play, even if you do not know any of the rules. Charades is a game that requires extraordinarily little equipment, and you can have a lot of fun with it.
Around the World Ring Toss
“The Around the World Ring Toss” is the perfect game for young graduates looking to reminisce and party with friends and family.
Everyone loves a game of Twister, but how do you play Twister with a whole group of people? Well, it is easy! Just use our giant Twister game instead of the standard 6-by-6 mat, and you will be set with the most fun graduation party game around. All you need is a giant Twister mat, a large enough space for your entire group to play, and some chairs to place your players on.
Superlatives are lists of superlatives, such as “dumbest prom date,” “best dressed,” etc. Superlatives might seem childish, but they can be a lot of fun, especially if your high school classmates are anything like my high school classmates.
Guess the Baby Grad
The challenge for your guests is to match the baby photo to the graduate’s name for fun. Make this harder by adding photos from other guests or family members and altering photos to make them appear aged. Everyone loves these baby photos, and this is a great idea when throwing large parties. Ask your graduates for their baby photos and lay them out on a table for everyone to look at.
Carnival games are fun for all ages, and these great party games are guaranteed to provide hours of fun. Whether you have kids or adults attending, these games are sure to bring fun. The room will be filled with laughter as everyone competes to win the games.
Graduation Cap Tic-Tac-Toe
Graduation parties are all about fun, so you want a good party game that is not too competitive or complicated. Tic-Tac-Toe fits the bill. It is one of the best party games that anyone can play, and its timing is perfect because it takes a few minutes to set up, and then it plays well as guests mingle.
While you get excited about your special graduation celebration, there is one key component that tends to get overlooked: the games that will be played. A graduation party is an excellent opportunity to connect with family and friends for an evening, so it is nice to have some games on hand that everyone can enjoy. At the same time, you could even take a stab at coming up with your own games!
