If your teen is a fan of TV or movie trivia, this is the game to get! Scene-It is a party game on DVD that has players or teams against one another to test knowledge of television, cinema, and pop culture.

This one is an award winner and rightly so. It is amazing fun and very simple to play. Players are given a set of red apple cards, each having a noun on it like New York or pizza. The dealer has the green apple cards consisting of adjectives like terrified or dazzling. The dealer puts down a green apple card facing up and each player must choose one of their red apple cards that they believe is the best fit for the green apple card. The dealer/judge then chooses the card he/she feels is the best fit.
Get ready to laugh! This book consists of a question…Would you rather…then there are two answers to choose from. It is a great party game because of well, the many gross questions asked. It really makes you think and sometimes there is just no good answer, so having to pick gets pretty funny. The reasons for the chosen answer are equally as funny to hear. And there is a bonus, on the bottom of the page there are fun facts as well. This game gets to be pretty funny!
Pictionary has proven itself to be the ultimate party game. In this quick-draw classic, the guesses can be just as hilarious as the sketches so it is the perfect way to break the ice and get the party started.
There are some really fun activities that are made for slumber parties! It's fun to get some slumber party ideas from your guests as well, just be sure everyone is okay with these, you don't want to put anyone on the spot.
Another really important part of a slumber party is breakfast!
The key here is to keep it simple. Cereal, pop-tarts, doughnuts, bagels & cream cheese are all good options. Also have a pick up time. Don't leave this open. Everyone will be tired, especially you, so be sure everyone knows when the party is over!
Go have fun!
