Games often help to break the ice at parties, and help people to get a little more comfortable around everyone!

So I will do the best that I can to provide you with some great games to make your party just that much more MAGICAL.

Let's begin by figuring out if your party will be indoors or outside? I would imagine that mom and dad wouldn't be too impressed if you decided to have some water fight games in your living room! I know mine wouldn't!

Next you should jot down all of your hobbies and interests that you know you friends may be interested. Some examples include:

Dancing, singing, arts and culture, concerts or sports.

See below some neat game ideas that you and your guests may enjoy!

Truth Or Dare Bingo

Here's how to play!


Download our free bingo card template, one for every guest. Write truth or dare on ever square and jot down numbers from 1-79 at random underneath the Truth or Dare.


Players must perform a truth or dare before getting to dab the selected number. One line or four corners wins the Truth or Dare bingo game!

The Celebrity Guess Who Game

The celebrity guess who game is a simple, fun and a great ice-breaking sweet 16 party game. The object of the game is for one team to try to describe the chosen mystery celebrity without actually saying their name, and the other team must correctly guess the celebrity in a short period of time. The team can work together to try and describe the celebrity to the other.

To play, you must write the name of a celebrity on each card. The cards must be folded in half so no cheating is involved. Place all of the cards in a hat or bucket. Separate the party into two separate teams, and have a ball!

Here's an example for the game. If the celebrity is Paris Hilton, and the team is trying to describe who she is, you can say quotes such as "That's hot" or "TTYN".

If Don King was pulled out of the hat, you can shout "Only in America!", or describe his hair style. There is so much that you can do with this sweet 16 party game and it's so simple and fun to play!


The Piñata Game

The piñata game is basically just having a good old fashion piñata knockdown! Purchasing a piñata is easy and cheap, you can find various types and themes at any dollar store or party shop.

Fill your piñata with several colorful candies and treats, and even some cool party favors for the players to race and collect. To make your piñata a little different, you could fill it with makeup, nail polish and hair products.

You may want to warn the players of any hard objects that you put in the piñata; you may even want to get them some sort of shield for their heads! This will make the sweet 16 party game even more hilarious, assign each player to make their own head protection, blind fold them and let them go to town!
