My oldest son is turning 13 soon, and we are planning a Disco Party for him!  But I would like to keep things interesting for the kids with some games, I don’t know of any that aren’t targeted at the younger kids and don’t want to bore the older kids with those!!  If anyone could give me some ideas of games for pre and early teens, I would be very grateful. Thank You!

  • Seeing as it’s a disco theme maybe some music games?

  • depends on the theme. a disco sounds great and they will love that for sure!

  • Ohhh tricky. 13 year olds are very hard to please. If you plan too much you will just be considered ‘uncool’. It would take some planning, but perhaps a pop-culture trivia competition based on recent movies and songs etc. This website will give you plenty of ideas, you might just need to rework the wording to make them suitable for 13yo’s. http://www.voyamagazine.com/2015/04/03/teen-pop-culture-quiz-update-45-april-2015/

  • Musical chairs is fun and not just for kids :-) what about a target shooting gaming (one with the foam bullets of course) and have a prize for the winner

  • gosh at 13 I would just do some sack races and running races as games

  • Maybe dance competition or singing competition.

  • This age love a scavenger hunt where they take photos of things found with their phone camera. In groups of 3 or 4. In say the area of the neighbourhood block you live in. More points for difficulty. Review photos(funny) and highest scoring team win a small prize.

  • musical statues, dancing competitions at the disco. everyone loves pass the parcel and kick the soccer ball to music and who ever has it when music stops is out.

  • i really think the party would be great with all the good ideas :)

  • I think you have some great ideas posted by other members, so much to choose from.

  • Ohh fun!!!!! I would have a theme and the best dressed wins a prize…..then you could have a Limbo comp, a conga line, a Macarena comp, Gangnam style dance off…..You could have a boys Vs Girls dance off prizes for best moves. So many different ideas! Sounds like a great time! x

  • A good old fashioned game of twister would be fun!

  • Maybe a lucky spot on the dance floor or a limbo competition. CD as a prize or even itune vouchers for best dancer or craziest hat.

  • Difficult age for parties. Make sure they have lots of room and easy but yummy party food.

  • A Karaoke competition is always fun or a dance off.
