1. Balloon Pop Challenge
This game combines suspense and humor. Write a series of funny or silly challenges on small pieces of paper and insert them into balloons before inflating them. Challenges could include things like “Sing ‘Happy Birthday’ like a chicken” or “Do your best impression of a monkey.”
Each tween takes turns choosing a balloon, popping it (either by sitting on it or using a pin), and then must complete the challenge inside. The catch is that they have to keep a straight face while doing it! Watching their friends attempt these ridiculous tasks will have everyone in stitches.
2. The Whisper Challenge
The Whisper Challenge is a game that never fails to induce uncontrollable laughter. One person wears noise-canceling headphones or earplugs while the others take turns whispering funny phrases or sentences to them. The person with the headphones on must guess what’s being said, and the results are often hilariously inaccurate.
To play, you’ll need a playlist of funny phrases or sentences prepared in advance. Make sure to capture the reactions on camera for even more amusement.
3. Mystery Box Challenge
Create a “mystery box” filled with random, everyday objects that are safe to touch or handle. Blindfold each participant and have them reach into the box to feel an item without looking. They must then guess what they’re touching.
For added hilarity, include some unusual items like a rubber chicken, slime, or a furry stuffed animal. The reactions to the unexpected textures and shapes are guaranteed to provoke laughter.
4. DIY Skit Challenge
Encourage creativity and laughter by organizing a DIY skit challenge. Divide the tweens into small groups and provide them with a scenario, such as “lost in the jungle” or “visiting an alien planet.” Each group must create a short skit based on the given scenario, using props, costumes, and their imagination.
After a brief rehearsal, each group presents their skit to the rest of the party. The comedic interpretations of the scenarios are bound to have everyone in stitches.
5. Toilet Paper Fashion Show
This is a simple yet uproarious game that only requires a few rolls of toilet paper. Divide the tweens into pairs or small groups, and provide each group with a roll of toilet paper. Their mission? To create the most fashionable outfit for one member of their team using only toilet paper.
Set a timer for a limited amount of time, and let the fashion show begin! Each team must dress their model in their toilet paper creation and strut their stuff on the “runway.” Prepare for a lot of laughs as the makeshift fashion designs unravel.
6. Dance Off with a Twist
A dance-off is a classic party game, but you can add a hilarious twist by making it a “random dance-off.” Write down different dance styles (e.g., ballet, breakdancing, chicken dance) on slips of paper, and place them in a hat.
Each participant takes a turn drawing a style from the hat and then has to dance in that style to a chosen song. Watching tweens attempt to execute ballet moves to hip-hop music or breakdance to classical tunes is pure comedy gold.
7. Storytelling Game
This game combines creativity and humor. Begin a story with a sentence or two and have one participant continue the story with their own sentence. Then, the next person adds another sentence, and so on. The catch? Each sentence must be funny, absurd, or completely unexpected.
As the story progresses, it becomes a hilarious, nonsensical tale that’s sure to have everyone in fits of laughter. Plus, it’s a fantastic exercise in quick thinking and improvisation.
8. Glow-in-the-Dark Charades
Charades is a timeless game, but you can give it a modern twist by playing it in the dark with glow-in-the-dark items. Write down phrases, actions, or famous movie titles on slips of paper using glow-in-the-dark markers.
Turn off the lights, put on some glow-in-the-dark accessories (bracelets, necklaces, or even face paint), and take turns acting out the phrases while others guess. The glow-in-the-dark element adds an exciting and funny dimension to this classic game.
9. Pie Face Showdown
Pie Face Showdown is a game that involves suspense, laughter, and a bit of messiness. The game consists of two players who take turns trying to pie each other in the face. Whipped cream is usually used, but you can opt for a non-dairy alternative if preferred.
The tension builds as players turn the handles, hoping to avoid getting pie-faced. It’s a game of anticipation, and the reactions when someone gets “pie-d” are pure comedy.
10. Food Art Challenge
Turn food into art with this creative and funny game. Provide each participant with a plate of various food items like vegetables, fruit, and condiments. Challenge them to create a food art masterpiece within a time limit.
The catch is that they must use all the items on their plate, and their creation should be amusing or silly. Encourage them to let their imaginations run wild. Once everyone has completed their food art, have a “gallery walk” to admire and laugh at the edible masterpieces.
