Some fun ideas for invitations for a Volleyball

note card type or a simple one panel circle. Write
party information on the back and sketch volleyball lines on
Buy white (or your teams colors) large round suckers and round
address labels a little smaller then the suckers.
Print out party information on the labels and attach to the
Tie white helium balloons to the mailbox to show guests where the party
is located. Add in a few accent colors - like your teams
colors - with the white
balloons. Draw lines on the balloons with
a permanent marker to make them look like volleyballs.
Attach a net to each side of the party entrance and above the door
frame. If you will be playing volleyball outside make it a beach
feel by putting down some sand on the walkway to the party. Buy or
make volleyballs from cardstock or poster board and hang them with
ribbons from tree limbs leading into the party.
Cover the main party table with a solid color table
cloth and draw net stripes on the table cloth - you can also make the
netting by using striping tape. Use large white plates and accent
with colorful napkins, cups and flatware. You could also
drape a large volleyball net around the sides of a party table.
Decorate practice t-shirts. Buy shirts (or ask each guest to bring
their own) and let them decorate the shirts with iron on letters, fabric
markers and paint.

How many game
In a large clear plastic jar with a tight lid
lots of different types of round candies like bubble gum,
skittles, etc. Before the party count the candies as you are
placing them in the jar - remember to write down the amount
and keep it in a safe place. When guests start
to arrive ask them to guess how many candies are in the jar.
Write down their name and their guess. At the end of the
party read off the guesses and find out who is closest to
the actual amount . The person closest to the number
in the jar wins the jar and the candies inside!
Volleyball Party Games
Play this fun party game inside using a white balloon for the
volleyball. Set up a volley ball court inside by placing a real
volleyball net 4 to 5 feet from the floor or string a piece of rope
across the court the same height. Divide into two teams and have
teams take off their shoes and lay on their backs on the court.
Play volleyball using only feet - no hands!
Volleyball Truth or Dare
Before the party print out a list of
Truth or Dare questions - we have a huge list here to print out for
free. Cut them into individual strips - fold so that the truth
question or dare cant be seen- and place one by one into balloons.
Blow up the balloons and tie. During the party give each girl a
balloon. On "go" they must keep their balloon in the air by
hitting it up with their hands. If someone lets their balloon hit
the floor they must sit on their balloon to pop it and do whatever is on
