High-Enjoying Party Games for Teens and Older Kids

Are you planning a tween party and need some ideas? You need games that keep the 8-12-year-olds interested and engaged, once you get past the Pin the Tail on the Donkey or Pass the Parcel stages. These party games are highly entertaining and have been tested for success with tweens. There are games for kids as well as kids birthday scavenger hunt as well as quizzes designed for adults. We also offer special items for celebrations of the season like Halloween, Christmas and Easter. Grapevine provides ready-made items which can be used in celebrations and events. There is everything you require from murder mysteries to pub quizzes, as well as amazing themed treasure hunts that are perfect for children.

Grape in Flour

A plate, flour, knife, and grapes are all you will need. Place one grape on top of a mountain. Each child must take turns to cut off chunks of flour, without damaging the grape.

The one who knocks the grape gets their face turned into flour.

Donuts on a String

Use donuts that have a hole in their middle to tie them onto string and hang in rows. Each child must have a go at eating donuts without touching the sugar or licking their lips.

Truth or Dare

Prepare some truth or dare questions. This helps keep things in check so that the questions don’t get out of control. Put the slips of paper in a jar. Each person has to take a turn and pick one.

Would you rather…

It can be quite entertaining, especially if you start the game with some very serious questions. This age group is a fan of farts, burps and bums. These are just a few ideas to get you started:

  • Would you rather eat a slug, or lick a snail instead?
  • Would you prefer to live in a humid cave or on top of a treetop?
  • Would you prefer to… kiss a frog, or eat a tortoise?

Stack Attack

28 disposable plastic cups are required. Each person will have 60 seconds to stack the cups in a pyramid-like shape, then unpack them all again.

Put the dice up

Flat craft sticks, popsicle sticks or flat die are required. The dice are placed in the mouths of the participants.

Scavenger Hunt

A scavenger hunting activity is fun at any time, and Mykidstime has lots of great ideas for kids to participate in scavenger hunts.

Each team should prepare a list of at least 10 items to take outside. If it is really bad weather, they can also go indoors. The first team to return all of their items wins.

Get it up

A straw and some Smarties or M&Ms will be needed for each player. You will need 25 sweets. The players must eat them all and then transfer each M&M to another plate within 60 seconds. To hold the straw, you can only use one hand.

Each round could see multiple players. Everyone gets to enjoy their sweets at end

Keepy Uppy Bouquets

Each player receives two balloons. They must keep the balloons above the ground for one minute. They can only hold the balloons with one hand.

There could be 2 players per round, with one player being knocked out every time until there is a winner.


Twister is played on large, plastic mats that are spread on the ground or floor. The mat has four rows of colored circles: red, yellow and blue, as well as green.

The spinner attaches to a squareboard and can be used to determine the position of the player’s foot or hand. The combination is called “right hand yellow” after it has spun. Players must then move their matching foot or hand to the circle of the correct colour.

Cookie Face

Each player will need one cookie. Each player must place one cookie on their forehead. They should then use their facial muscles to get the cookie in their mouths in less than one minute. To make it even more fun, there are no hands!

Relay Dress-Up

Two sets of clothes are required for each team to dress in. shirt, sweater, trousers, scarf, gloves, hat, shoes. The “mannequin” is a member of the team.

If you say “Go”, each member of the team races to the basket or bag of clothes and chooses one item. Then, the team member runs back to the beginning. The team that dresses their “mannequin first wins.
