Fun Party Games for Tweens
Spin and Dare: This is a fun twist on a popular tween game, spin the bottle! First, have players write down some fun dares onto sheets of paper, then toss them into a hat! Then spin the bottle, whoever it lands on must draw a piece of paper and complete that dare!
Scavenger Hunts: Scavenger hunts can be fun for all ages, and tweens are included in it. Put the group of kids into teams and give them a list of things they must find. You can have them bring things back or take photos on their phone. The team who checks the most off of the list is the winner.
Pass the Fruit: You grab a piece of fruit, whether an apple, orange, lime, or something else. The purpose of the game is to get that fruit from one player all the way to the other end of the line. What makes this so fun (and difficult!) is the fact that you are not allowed to use your hands in any way to pass the fruit. Great fun and results in tons of laughs.
Who Am I?: Someone writes down the names of celebrities onto index cards. Then each person has a card attached to them, somewhere they can’t see it. This could be on their back or forehead, anywhere is fine. Now they get to have fun by figuring out who they are. They can ask questions and it usually results in a funny situation as the guests try to come up with ideas that fit their question.

Once all the candy is gone, the person with the most candies in their cup is the winner.
Wear That: For this game, fill a bag with silly clothing items and accessories, like bikinis, large boxers, feather boas, and high heels. Then, have players take turns rolling a dice. If a player rolls a 1 or a 6, they must take an item from the bag and put it on over their clothing. Continue playing until all the items are removed from the bag. The winner is the player wearing the least number of items.
