Sweet 16 Party Ideas?

I'm turning 16 in November, but I'm having my birthday party in September or October. I want to have a country themed party. There's gonna be a bounce house, a kissing booth, a crazy photo booth, and dancing, but I just don't know what other activities or games to do?

Hi Tyra!
I found some games I hope you can use and will enjoy for your Sweet 16 party! :) For the first one, you will need 20 balloons. It is called Balloon Truth or Dare, you simply write out 10 "truth" cards and 10 "dare" cards. Now these can be written on small pieces of index cards or on small pieces of paper, just make certain that they are big enough to be read. Now put the slips of paper into the balloons and blow up the balloons. All during your party have you and your friends pop a balloon, then you or your friends must answer the "truth" card or carry out the "dare" card that comes out of the balloon.

Lie Detector is a game where you give everyone an index card or a piece of paper and ask them to write down three things about themselves. Two of them must be true and the other one has to be untrue. It can be as silly and ridiculous or as believable as you want to make it. After everyone has filled out their cards, have them read the cards, one at a time, to the group. The group must then guess which one is not true. This game is a great game to play to let everyone get to know each other.

Musical Chairs would be another game you could play. Just put on some dance music and dance around the chairs until the music stops. The one left without a chair is out. You continue taking away a chair until there is only one chair left and two people, the one that gets the chair when the music stops is the winner.

Charades or a Dance Contest are also good ideas for your party. If time allows, how about having a Scavenger Hunt? You wouldn't have to make it that large, you could just do something small where you're looking for "treasures" around the house or backyard.

You could also Bob for Apples, Pass the Orange, have a Pie Eating Contest, a Blindfold Feeding Game or play a Marshmallow Game. If you decide to bob for apples, you will need a large tub, water and apples. Fill the tub with water and add the apples, then have two people "bob" for an apple. The first one to catch an apple, using only your teeth, no hands, is the winner. Just continue playing until everyone has had a turn. Pass the orange is another great ice breaker game. You put a large orange under your chin and pass the orange from guest to guest using only your neck, no hands, to hold the orange. You cannot let the orange fall onto the floor.

The pie eating contest could get expensive if you let it. You could buy the cheapest ready made pies that your local grocer sells(approximately $3 each)and you will need several of them or you could buy the foil pie pans and fill with whipped cream(this would be considerably less expensive). Each contestant tries to be the first to finish their pie without using their hands. The price of this game just depends on the number of guests that you are inviting.

The Blindfold Feeding Game is hilarious! Have two people sit back to back, blindfold both of them. Give one of them something messy to eat(example: melting ice cream or spaghetti) and tie the other ones hands behind their back. Now, the one that has the messy food has to feed the one with their hands tied behind their back. It is so funny to watch them!

One more and I am done, can't think of anything else.LOL How about a Marshmallow Game? You will need several bags of marshmallows and eager participants! The object of this game is to see how many marshmallows you can put in your mouth and still hold a conversation with the group. That's it, just stuff your mouth full of marshmallows and talk! Be very careful and don't get choked though. Maybe some of these games will be of some help to you. I hope you have a wonderful and extremely awesome Happy Sweet 16!
Hugs, Paula
