Will you be hosting a party for your high school graduate? Parents can find it difficult to come up with party activities that will be appropriate for guests who are under age. Here are a few fun ideas that can keep new high school graduates, and their friends, entertained.
Graduation Party Games
Name That Mascot
Education.com has a graduation party activity that makes people think about college. It requires some preparation, but it isn’t difficult to do.
First, go online and find photos of the mascots of various colleges and universities. Print out the photos and paste them to a piece of cardboard. Try to avoid images that specifically state the name of the college. Put a number on each one.
Next, give each party guest a piece of paper and a pen. Ask them to write down the name of the school that each mascot belongs to. Make a “cheat sheet” for yourself so you won’t forget the correct answers. Set a timer and have everyone stop writing when the timer goes off.
Reveal the answers out loud. Ask the guests to raise their hands if they will be attending each college that you have a mascot for. This gives the recent high school graduates the opportunity to learn what school their friends will be attending. Select a prize to give the guest who had the most correct answers.
This game functions like the trivia nights that happen at bars. Ask the guests to divide up into at least two teams. Each team is required to think up an amusing name for themselves. Every team needs to have a large sheet of paper and a pen (to write down their answers).
This game also requires some preparation (just like regular trivia nights). Parents need to compile a series of questions about their graduate. “What does he want to major in?” “Name the three schools that she applied to”. “What was his least favorite class in high school?” You can use multiple choice questions if you like. Try and avoid questions that will cause your high school graduate to become completely embarrassed. Stick with topics that are education or college related.
After all the questions have been asked, it is time to go over the answers. Allow each team to check their own paper. Repeat each question, followed by the correct answer. The team that came up with the most correct answers wins. Plan ahead so you will have a prizes to hand out to the members of the winning team.
