Is your high schooler having a graduation party?  Here are a couple of fun activities that parents can quickly put together to entertain the guests.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.

Graduate Trivia
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.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
