Night Glow Bowling: This is so fun! You probably have some of these things around the house too. You need 6 tall, empty bottles (smart water bottles work great), a hamster ball (it is clear, and twists apart so you can put a glow stick in it) and some glow sticks. The sticks fit nicely into the bottles and you can the bracelet or necklace ones to fit inside the ball. Set them up and be sure to keep score!
Backyard Twister: How cool is this?! Take a piece of cardboard, or an empty box and cut a big hole out (this will be making your colored circles). Then head to the hardware store (or your garage) and grab some red, yellow, blue and green spray paint. Instead of a spinner, you can write on pieces of paper and pull them from a bowl.
Glow Stick Ring Toss: This is another fun game to play when the sun goes down. The dollar store will have the glow necklaces you need and you can grab a doil from the hardware store as the stick. Your friends can all have their own color so it’s easier to keep score.
What Year Is It? Grab a bunch of pictures of the graduate (you have to know the year it was taken, and write it on the back). You can have post-its available for your guests, and they have to guess the year the pic was taken. A small prize for the winner is fun! Plus this game allows everyone to ‘ooh’ and ‘ahhhh’ at how cute you were!
Who Am I? I wish I had done this! When your guests arrive, they each get a sticky note attached to their back, with the name of a teacher on it. Your guests can only ask yes or no questions to figure out which teacher they are! You can even use yourself as one, how fun is that?!
Giant Jenga: You may have seen this before, but it is so fun. You can go to the hardware store and get wood for under $30 or so. You will need a card table or some other flat surface to play on. Get your guests to sign the pieces too! It turns into a great keepsake.
Water Balloon Dodgeball: You may want to tell your guests ahead of time they will get wet (just so they don’t wear their cutest dress they don’t want to get wet). You just need a big bucket, and water balloons. It is like dodgeball but with water balloons! Just in case you haven’t played this in awhile, here is a refresher. One person is ‘it’ and has the water balloons, trying to hit the other players. Once a player is hit, that person is ‘it’ and tries to hit other players.
No matter what games you play at your graduation party, you are no doubt going to be making some memories. It is a bittersweet time of year, you are excited and happy to be moving on, but you are also sad to be moving on and leaving friends behind. So be sure to take lots of pics and selfies!
