Sweet Sixteen Party Games
Pairing off party game
Pin a card on each teen's back with the names of well-known couples or pairs. It might be stars like Superman and Lois, Batman and Robin, Bonnie and Clyde, or just pairs such as tea and coffee, etc.
Each person must find out who they are by looking at other people's cards and asking appropriate questions. The only question they can't ask is "who am I?". They are only allowed to ask one question to each player. Only yes or no answers are allowed. Examples of questions are, "Am I a super hero?" or "Am I a drink?"
Kissing Cards Game
Get a card (it can be a credit card, a playing card, etc.) and sit everyone in a circle, alternating boys and girls. The first person to start this teen party game must suck the card to their lips and hold it that way. This person then has to pass it to the person next to him/her, using only their mouths. The second person sucks in to get the card, while the first person blows out to pass it to the second player. The pair that drops the card is out of the game. Continue until there is one couple left. Look through our sweet 16 party supplies for prizes to congratulate the winners.
Mix and Match
Before the party begins, find many male and female clothes (in large or extra-large size). Try to include everything from pantyhose and lingerie to shoes and hats. Make sure that there are even amounts of both male and female clothing. Mix up the clothes and put them into one laundry basket. An area is then designated as the finish line. There is a person in charge of timing the couples with a stopwatch. When that person says, "Go," the first couple runs to the basket of clothes to get dressed as fast as possible. The girl puts on the boy's clothing, and the boy puts on the girl's clothing (over their own clothing). As soon as they are both dressed they have to run to the finish line hand in hand. Each couple goes through the same motions, and the couple with the fastest combined time wins. A fun variation of this teen party game is to have couples dress each other: boys dress girls in male clothing and girls dress boys in female clothing.
