Teen Birthday Party Games

By: Tim Lee

Planning a teen birthday party is challenging because it is difficult to know what today's teens love doing. You want the party of your teenager to be more fun than watching a movie at the mall. How then can you plan a birthday party for a teenager?

The following are themes that have been tried and tested by moms out there. Along with the appropriate decoration ideas, games, activities and invitations, these two themes for a teen's birthday party are the most popular.

1. The Detective Party

Here, teenagers engage in a Search and Riddle theme party. This is a take on a Murder in a Party consisting of a game asking "Who am I?" and the second a longer one because it is a Treasure Hunt.

You wouldn't need much with this party. To prepare for a Detective theme, all you need to do is be inspired by those "who done it" murder mysteries. Once you have a story going on then you can incorporate all these ideas and let the teens join in by asking them to solve the mystery.

It's not scary. It wouldn't give the teenagers any nightmare after playing the Detective game. In fact, it's fun when played in the evening because the darkness adds more to the excitement.

As for the clues, you can hide these inside the house. It's a 90 minute up to two hour party. It depends on how many guests are invited.

2. The Survivor Party

Inspired by the popular reality show, you don't need to have it playing in the background to show the teenagers because chances are they have already seen an episode or two. The main game of the party is different from the show because no one gets voted off. It is fun and friendly competition.

The teenagers are encouraged to use their imaginations and their brains. They are also asked to do a lot of noise and a couple of yucky stuff like eat exotic food. This is suitable if you are planning on hosting a fast paced party.

The preparation time for this party is mostly two hours because you will be needing a lot of food here for the game. A game we suggest that you play is the spin the wheel and then it shows a particular food the teenager will eat.

It is suitable for indoors as well as outdoors. You can also try out for the water-based games.
