Ball game

Take an inflatable beach ball and write questions all over it then toss it to some one and the question that their right thumb lands on is the question that they have 2 answer!

Tie Dye Cupcakes

You need vanilla cupcake mix. Split between 4 bowls. Take 4 bottles of food coloring. Take one color, squirt a few mini squirts into one bowl of batter and mix until completely that color. Do the same with the rest of the batter. Now take tiny scoops of different batter, and place them into a cupcake cup randomly. Bake, and enjoy!!!

Secret cards!!!!

Have every one write down a secret that nobody knows on a note card. Jumble up all the cards and distribute them to the guests. Have them read the card and guess who's card it is. (Try to make your hand writing unrecognizable to make it even harder!) it's tons of FUN!!!!

Truth or DARE!!!!

Truth or dare is ESSENTIAL! It is best at midnight, because it isn't too loud. (Unless everyone laughs too loudly at the embarrassing questions and dares!)

Nail polish spin

What you do is you put a bunch of different nail polish bottles and spin one by one in the middle. The person the bottle points at has to put that nail varnish on!

Musical sleeping bags

You put sleeping bags in a circle then when someone turns the music on everyone walk around the sleeping bags, then when the music stops everyone has to try and get in a sleeping bag. It's like musical chairs.

Have someone spin until they are very dizzy and the rest of the time you and the others who aren't spinning bounce up and down to confuse the spinner.

Truth or dare or would you rather

"Truth or dare is a very creative way to spend your afternoon. "Would you rather" also helps to bring laughter in the room."
