Sweet Sixteen Party Games
Everyone enjoys a good sing-along at karaoke. Set up the karaoke machine in the designated party space that will serve as the stage. Create competitions and giveaways to advance this party game and encourage friendly rivalry. All of your guests will be begging for an encore after playing this entertaining party game, which works well with just about any theme.
2. Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger hunts can be a lot of fun, depending on your location for your sweet sixteen party. If the party is being held in the city, give each guest a list and a camera, and instruct them to take pictures of everything they cross off the list. The team with the most things completed and a photo to document all the fun wins a prize.
3. Dance Off
This is a great way to get everyone at the party, including the birthday girl, to have a good time and make fun of themselves. A birthday party wouldn’t be complete without some dancing, after all. Designate three judges for the dance-off to spice up the game.
Line up the party guests, start some music and have them try to slide under the stick one at a time. You lower the limbo stick each time the group passes through after the first time to see who can make it under.
