Truth or Dare Pop
This game gives a twist to the popular Truth or Dare game (see above).
Print out the list of truth questions and dare ideas and then cut them
into individual strips of paper. Fold and put them inside balloons
- dares in one color of balloon and truths in another. Blow the
balloons up and tie with the paper inside each balloon. Assign
each guest a number 2 - 12. The fist person rolls two dice and the
number that comes up on the dice is the number of the tween that has to
pop a balloon and then do the truth or dare that is on the paper inside.
After they are done with their truth or dare then they get to roll the
dice to see who goes next. Variation: Instead of using two
different colors of balloons to separate the truths from the dares use a
mixture of colors so no one knows if they are getting a truth or a dare
when they chose a balloon.
Tween Drama Game
Shopping and Drama in
one game! Put 5
different items in several large shopping bags. A shoe, hat,
party favor etc. - just make sure the items in each bag
are different. Divide into teams and then give the
team one bag. Send them to different spots away from each
other. They have to create a play or skit which incorporates
every items they have in their bag. Give them 15 minutes to
practice their skit and then they perform the skits for
everyone.. You might want to video the finished
skits. Variation: Tweens can create a
commercial, tribute or a song.

Bigger the Better Hunt
This is really a different style of game that doesn't require a
list. Trade a small item for a better or bigger item at
each house the team stops at during the game. Give teams a small item
like a quarter or pencil. They have to trade the item for a better item
at each house they stop at during the hunt. If you have two teams let
one team take the even and the other the odd number houses so they won't
go to the same house twice. For example: Trade the quarter for a pen ...
then trade the pen for a small knick knack ... then trade the knick
knack for a picture ... etc. After the time limit the team that comes
back with the best or biggest item wins! Friends played and one of the
teams came back carrying a TV! Great game for 9,
10, 11 and 12 years old!
You will need a bag filled with crazy clothes and items to wear such as
feather boas, bikinis, funny glasses, high heels, large underwear, hats,
etc. ... the more outrageous the better. Place all the items
in a large shopping or black garbage bag. Have the
players one at a time roll one dice. If the dice lands on a 1 or a
6 then they must take an item from the bag and put it on over their
clothes. Keep playing until all the items are being worn.
The person that has on the fewest things wins. Variation:
Instead of having the person rolling the dice choose from the bag have
the person to their right choose something from the bag for them to

driveway. The spaces on the game board need to be large enough for a
preteen to stand in comfortably. Make one space the starting
space and fill in the other spaces with things the players have to do
while in that space. Some fun examples for the squares are: Hop on
one leg, cluck like a chicken, say "Yowza" after everything anyone says,
turn around in circles, give everyone a high five, etc. Dice can

are the playing pieces and they move themselves through the game board.

from around the room and hands it to the person standing up. The first
player then has to make a 30 second
commercial for the item they were given. Keep playing until everyone has had a turn.
Quack, Quack, Who's There?
All you need to play this party game is a blindfold and chairs for
everyone to sit in. Place the chairs in a circle facing each other
and have all the tweens find a seat. The person who is "it" puts
on the blindfold and stands in the middle of the circle. On "go"
the rest of the players change seats several times so that "it" doesn't
know who is sitting where in the circle. Then the person who
is "it" moves around the circle and chooses someone's lap to sit in.
They sit down and the person who is seated says "Quack, quack!" while
trying to disguise their voice. "It" tries to guess who the person
is by their voice. If they guess the person correctly then they
take that persons spot in the circle and the the one who was sitting
down stands up, takes the blindfold and becomes the new "it".
Play this game with skittles candy or any colorful candy. Place the
candy into a big bowl. Sit down and without looking choose 2
candies. Put the two candies inside your mouth. If the candies are
the same colors then chew them. But if they are different you keep them
inside your mouth until another turn. Then you choose two more to see if
you can get a pair.

You'll need a new roll of toilet paper for this fun party game.
Gather the tweens together and make a circle. Tell them that you
are going to pass around the sleepover game toilet paper roll and to
take as much as they think they need for the game. Pass the paper
around without any further instructions and they will take sheets off
the roll. After everyone has their sheets then tell them they have
to share one thing about themselves for each square of toilet paper they
