number that comes up on the dice is the number of the preteen that has to
pop a balloon and then do the truth or dare that is on the
After they are done with their truth or dare then they get to roll the

mixture of colors so no one knows if they are getting a truth or a dare
when they chose a balloon.

This is really a different style of game that doesn't require a
list. Trade a small item for a better or bigger item at
each house the team stops
at during the game.
Give teams a small item
like a quarter or pencil. They have to trade the item for a better item
at each house they stop
at during the hunt. If you have two teams let
one team take the even and the other the odd number houses so they won't
go to the same house twice. For example: Trade the quarter for a pen ...
the pen for a small knick knack ... then trade the knick
knack for a picture ... etc. After the time limit the team that comes
back with the best or biggest item wins! Friends played and one of the
teams came back carrying a TV! Great game for 9,
10, 11 and 12 years old!Wear That!
You will need a bag filled with crazy clothes
and items to wear. Some fun ideas are feather boas, bikinis, funny glasses, high
heels, large underwear, hats, etc. for this dress up game ... the more outrageous the
better. Place all the items in a large shopping or black garbage
Have the players one at a time roll one dice.
If the dice lands on a 1 or a 6 then they must take an item from the bag
and put it on over their clothes. Keep playing until
all the items
are being worn. The person that has on the fewest things wins.
Instead of having the person rolling the dice choose
from the bag have the person to their right choose something from the
bag for them to wear. 10th

everyone to sit in. Place the chairs in a circle facing each other
and have all the birthday guests find a seat. The person who is "it" puts
on the blindfold and stands in the middle of the circle.
the rest of the players change seats several times so that "it" doesn't

is "it" moves around the circle and chooses someone's lap to sit in.
They sit down and the person who is seated says "Quack, quack!" while
trying to disguise their voice.
"It" tries to guess who the person
is by their voice. If they guess the person correctly then they
take that persons spot in the circle and the the one who was sitting
down stands up, takes the blindfold and becomes the new "it".
