Are you planning to throw a party for your teenager daughter and her friends? Have you finalized the food and drinks menu but confused what fun games to play at a teen party?
Rest assured, including some fun and interesting fun party game ideas for teenagers will make the event more exciting. Here is our recommendation of the top ten fun party games for teenagers!
1. Spot The Gestures:
- Nothing except creativity and guess work
- Ask each player to select a person they would like to impersonate, but it should be kept a secret and not revealed.
- The only point to keep in mind that everyone present should know that person – it could be a common teacher, a common classmate, a movie personality or even someone from the group.
- Turn by turn, each player has to stand up and do the impersonations, paying special stress on the gestures of that particular person. Speaking is not allowed.
- You can make the game more interesting by allowing a time slot.

2. Steal The Gifts:
- About five to ten small gifts wrapped up – the number of gifts should be in accordance with the size of the party. Keep in mind that not everyone should get a gift.
- Two decks of cards
- Ask your teen and friends to sit in a circle. Hand out the first deck of cards and ask them to pass one to each player. Keep passing the cards till the entire deck is finished. A few players may have more cards than the rest, but that is fine.
- Now hold the second deck of cards in your hand and pick out one card at a time. Call out each card as you open it. The person who has a matching card from the previous deck gets to pick up one of the prizes. Keep doing this till all the prizes are gone.
- Once all the prizes are gone, you will still have many uncalled cards from the second deck. Start calling out again.
- Call out a card, the person who has that card and try and steal the prize from those who earlier won the prizes. The fun is in trying to save the prizes and steal them.
- Make sure everything is done in fun and no one gets harmed or hurt in any way.
3. Stocking Snowball Fight:
- Old stockings
- A pair of scissors
- Fill the stocking at the toe using flour. Make it in a small lump and chop off the stocking right above the flour once it is filled. Tie it in a knot.
- Make a knot in the open end of the stocking and again fill with flour. Make a small lump and cut off from above the flour. Tie it in a lot.
- Keep doing this till you finish the entire stocking. You can make as many flour balls as you want.
- Allow your teen and friends to indulge in a fake snowball fight in the outdoor.
