The Most Fun Large Group New Year’s Eve Party Games
Dance Like It’s The New Year
This one is a super funny holiday party game! Gather several empty tissues boxes, a bunch of ping pong balls and rope or belts. Slice two holes in the tissue box and attach the belt or rope to the tissues box. Add the ping pong balls into the tissues box. Attach the rope or belt around the game player’s waist. Repeat until all the players are ready to go. Turn on your favorite New Year’s playlist and have the contestants dance and try to shake the ping pong balls out of the tissue boxes. The first person to shake all the ping pong balls out of their box wins!
See The Future
The New Year is a great chance to start off fresh and make a few predictions for the coming year. Have your friends answer questions about what they think is going to happen. These can be answered altogether or individually and then read aloud! Here are some question ideas to get you started:
- What type of movie will be the biggest summer blockbuster?
- Who will win the Super Bowl?
- What band will we hear too much of on the radio?
- Who will star in the biggest TV show of the year?
- What will be the best hairstyle of the next year?
Pass The New Year’s Hat
This is a simple game that only requires one item, a New Year’s themed hat! Have your guests sit in a circle, and one person puts on the New Year’s Hat. The person on their right must then take the hat off the first person’s head and place it on their own without using their hands. If they drop it, they are out. Play continues to the next person on the right until only one player is left. The person left wins the New Year’s Hat!
So which of these New Year’s Eve party games perfect for large groups are you going to play? We are playing all three at my party for sure! Tell me your favorite games down in the comments!
