Christmas Party Game Ideas for Teens - Help please!

Nichole 2012/11/18 03:05:30
Every year my extended family has a Christmas party and this year I am in charge of the tween/teen games (they are all between 10 and 15). I am at a complete loss as to what to do.

Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated!!
You!

    T-Shirt decorating contest...fabric markers in craft department (they have other paints, some take forever to dry. airbrush/spraypaint options work well & are fun to experiment with)
    *Pre-made, or paper to cut stencils (optional)
    Large & XLarge (for fast growers lol) plain white cotton T-Shirts
    cardboard & clothes pins to place & secure between layers of shirts when painting
    *scissors & "approved" ideas (don't want'em making "ho" shirts) for "altered"T's, printed off the internet for them to choose from (*optional part)
    *a hot, glue, or quick set fabric glue, & things like, buttons, jewels & artificial flowers can also be offered. But, there are so many more options there, for the girls, than the guys...it, may give to ladies an edge in competition! (optional)

    Give'em flat space, covered in paper
    choose theme
    a time limit, if you want & set'em free! Then they can model them & everyone at the party can pick winners, or prizes can go to them all for giving it a go!
    They have aloot of infor & ideas on sites like instructables.com & there are good books available, too!
    Just Have Fun & Good Luck! I teach Kids Arts & Craft Classes & host Arts & Crafts Parties often...they can be a blast! But, rest up! They'll wear you out! heehee

    Charades, twister, musical chairs, hot potato?
  • Nichole Aki 2012/11/18 13:06:41

    Hmm...I doubt these teens will do charades, they're too into the whole "nothing embarrassing" stage.

    Have them bring digital camera, give them a list of clues of stuff to find split them up into teams and the faster they find the items and bring the pics to you and who ever finds all the items the fastest gets a prize or have prizes for all the teams

    By the way, make the clues descriptions of the items so they can think about what the items are
  • Nichole Rodimus... 2012/11/19 09:58:51
    Nichole
    Thanks! I'll need all the luck I can get :)

    And that's an awesome idea!! Much better than just giving them a list!

    and that way you can use things that are 1 of a kind and too big for them to carry
  • Nichole Rodimus... 2012/11/19 11:17:46

    I like the way you think :)

    thanks, I guess, I have been told I can be very twisted.

    By the way, either set it for the first to get back or set a time to get pics of objects and who ever get the most correct as the winner

    Haha, I'm twisted as well, so it's all good.

    I was thinking I might time it and then whoever has the most at the end of the allotted time, wins.

    Not a bad idea, it would keep them occupied for quite a while :)

    I don't wanna sayy anything, but one of the girls cheats (it's so funny); we always catch her... she is not allowed to be the banker anymore xD

    Haha We have the same issue so we actually bought the credit card version. I can't remember what it's called, but no one is really the banker because it's all electronic.

    Not a problem. It really solved the cheating bankers issue we had :) I find it more fun than the original game as well.
