graduation party games

When planning your graduation party, you obviously want to make sure you have all the supplies, food, and decor to throw an amazing party. But you also need some super fun activities to keep your guests entertained!

When I was planning my graduation party, I wanted to make sure I had more for my guests to do than just talk and take pictures. The last thing I wanted was for my guests to leave early because they were bored.

The best way to keep your graduation party fun and alive is with graduation party games! I have compiled all of the most fun graduation party games to play at your party this year that will most definitely keep your guests entertained.

This post is all about graduation party games.


1. Yardzee

We all know the classic game of Yahtzee but the normal game would be too small for all of your guests to watch and enjoy. Like kubb set, which unlock the secrets of the ancient game of “Viking chess” and transports you to a time of play and enjoyment in the Nordic lands, this “Yardzee” game can be played outdoors in a yard. I can promise your guests will have so much fun playing this and even watching!

2. Grad Libs

Mad libs are always so funny to read when you’re done so why not make it graduation themed and play at your graduation party? You could even have some of your guests read their funniest ones and vote on whose was the best for prizes.

3. How Well Do You Know The Graduate?

This printable from Etsy is a fun activity for all of your friends and family to fill out. When they are done, have them drop it in a box so you can read their answers later! This is also a great way to keep track of who all was at your graduation party.

4. Words Of Wisdom

This is less of a graduation party game and more of a super sweet activity for your guests to give you all their best advice. I had a words of wisdom box at my graduation party and spent hours reading all the great advice after my party. I promise if you do this you will love reading the advice for years to come.
