Ideas for teenager's party
My 14 year old son is having a sleepover this weekend and I need a couple of good ideas for games. There will be 7 or 8 of them, and so far we've got the food covered, as well as a movie. None of them are into music. I'm afraid he'll get bored if we don't have things for them to "do". (PS - we've already promised him that we'll be hiding upstairs all night, while they're invading the downstairs)

You are a brave brave girl! Have a blast!!! How about a game of spot light tag? That would use up a lot of their energy.

Burst the balloon
  1. Have large packets of green and orange balloons.
  2. Divide the group into two equal teams and have them form two lines.
  3. Give each person a balloon. Green for one team and orange for the other.
  4. At the other end of the room, facing the lines, place two upright unpadded chairs.
  5. At a signal the first person in the line blows up their balloon, ties it, (the adults can do this if the children are young) and runs with it to the chair. They place it on the chair and sit on it, bouncing up and down if necessary, until it bursts.
  6. They then run back to their team and the next person blows up their balloon and repeats the action. The first runner goes to the back of the line and the team that finishes first wins.

Here's a link with some more games.

Are there going to be girls there or just guys?

Jkath, you are brave! Fourteen is a tough age. Maybe a scavenger hunt - they might say it is stupid, but they usually end up having a good time - divide them up into two teams and give them a list of objects - some easy and some not so easy (ie., no one came back with a sugar cube). Both teams must be back home at a certain time and each group must take off in different directions so they don't hit the same house more than once. Hint, make sure everyone's watches coincide with the time at home. Other than that, I'm not sure - scary movies?

Just boys, thank goodness! (I'm not ready for spin the bottle!!!)

As for the balloon game, it is really fun! We did that with the little one this past summer (only we did it with water balloons in a kiddie pool - talk about funny!)

Michelemarie - dh suggested that one last night - brilliant minds think alike:smile:
Any more ideas?

Jkath, this age is so hard. I have a 14 year old girl so the things they like are a bit different from the things boys like. I know they all enjoyed the scavenger hunt, making their own pizzas might be fun -- I know the girls like scary movies - is it too cold to swim, the kids always like that - but it is too cold there, I can't remember how warm it stays in ca in the fall. I'm sorry I can't be more help - give them a difficult list for the scavenger hunt, keep em busy!:lol: :rofl:

Lets see
If they dont play video games then i have no idea.
That's all i need for my parties.

If they like candy you could get a bag or two full and spread them out in a field and make them look for them.

If they are normal guys they'll search till there is nothing left.

I would have been amazed if my sons had ever taken one of my ideas for games at that age.

goboenomo 10-25-2006 10:20 AM

Get them to play sports if they wont play video games or search for candy.

Soccer is always fun.
In the dark too.

and drunk
...but you dont have to use that.
