DD1 is having a birthday party this weekend. I had thought they were too old for the traditional party games as such but DD says not....yet anything I suggest is met with a "muuuum "....So far she has suggested a chocolate game (involves dressing up I think) but that's about it.
So anyone have any ideas for the 12-13 year old age group? Any suggestions greatly appreciated

Help please! Fun yet funky party games for the pre-teen/early teen crowd please!

I'm guessing the chocolate game is chocolate 6 where you have to roll a 6 on a die? That was always my fave when that age.
Another we played was snakes on the line. Hang lolly snakes by string on washing line. Each person stands under one and is then blindfolded. First one to eat whole snake (using only mouth..no hands) wins!
We still played pass the parcel but put dares/challenges between each layer as well to make it more interesting.
A piñata could be fun too.

I hosted an 11 year olds party in October, we had a treasure hunt, where all the girls had to follow directions on a sheet and fill in riddles. At the end, the one who got all the answers right one smiggle items and there were small lollies hidden along the way.

There is always having a bowling party.. Or if the weather is nice that time of year having a beach party. Or a wii/Xbox party.. Or movies..

Ah yeah I loved the chocolate game! You roll a 6 then have to put on a whole dress up outfit and start eating a block of chocolate, then the next person gets a 6 and you swap as quick as you can.
I also liked playing memory. Have a tray full of random items (say 20) they get 10 seconds to look at it, then have 20 seconds to write down as many items as possible. Closest person (or top 3 whatever) get a prize.
Theyd probably like truth or dare!!
What about mini makeovers for a photo shoot if they are 'girly' girls?
Similar to the snake game we loved the donut game!
Bobbing for apples can be quite entertaining.
Do you have a ps / wii? Could you hire Singstar from the local video store?
You can do a match the celeb game. Google for baby photos and they have to guess which celeb it is
....Just afew ideas ! Hope it's a great party

We have also done the chocolate game using a knife and fork to eat/cut it.
Pass it parcel with dares is a good idea that someone mentioned - you can just google them for ideas.
Also popping balloons where they have to sit on them to burst them, you could put paper in all of them and some would say 'prize' - i also played this with dares inside.
Toilet paper/ foil dresses - in teams they dress each other up. Best dressed wins a prize.
You could buy key ring/ bracelet etc making kits that they could do.
My sisters 12 and 15 normally tell everyone to bring thier fave movie and they play the wii.

Thanks everyone, these are really good. We do have a wii and an x-box but I was going to use these as a last resort kind of thing iykwim and I'm going to download a movie. It's a sleepover party so we think a game of spotlight might be good too, plus the chocolate game, truth and dare and I like the balloon popping and although I suggested pass the parcel adding "dares" to it sounds fun and in line with this age group.
It's a bit tricky this age group- not little girls anymore but not teenagers either really!

I second the chocolate game with a knife and fork! SO fun!
I had a surprise 13th party and (from memory!) we played things like truth/dare, celebrity head and trivia type games (this was over a decade ago though when times were a bit more simple!). You're so lucky that they actually want to play games. Most girls would want to sit in their room and gossip/listen to music
Oh and....can I come?? This party sounds AWESOME! They are going to have a ball!

I know it's not a game but as it's a sleep over you could do mini manicures/pedicures.
