Here are some of my favorite graduation party game ideas sure to energize and entertain your crowd. Try mixing up interactive, competitive, and low-key options to keep things lighthearted and engage guests of all ages and interests. With a variety of options, everyone can join in on the fun in their own way.

Photo Booth Frenzy

A photo booth is a graduation party staple that creates lasting memories. Set up a fun backdrop and props like silly hats, glassed, boas or signs that say " grad" or the graduate's name. Have guests strike silly or serious poses as others snap photos. You can either email the photos to the guests, or print them out in 1-hour with Picta! Yup, that’s less time than it takes to wait for everyone to cross the stage. This is a low-effort hit that is sure to bring smiles!

Mad Libs Madness

Break out the Mad Libs for some classic word game fun. Have guests fill in blanks with parts of speech like verbs, adjectives, and nouns. Read the hilarious results out loud together for a laugh. You can find printables online or make your own graduation-themed stories. This is the perfect ice-breaker!

Magical Memories

Lay out photos from the grad's childhood, school years and activities on a table. Then guests can try to put the photos in order and the winner gets a fun prize! Now remind me, did Jake do soccer before or after his little sister was born?

Caption Contest

Blow up one funny or (slightly) embarrassing pic of the graduate (hey! it’s their day to shine ….) and have guests write creative captions on slips of paper. Read the captions aloud and have everyone vote on their favorite and stick it on the photo for a great souvenir of the fun day (and a funny thing to slip in their suitcase when they head off to college).

Caption It & Keep It!

Beat the Graduate

Test how well guests know fun facts about the grad like their first grade teacher, middle school crush or best subject in high school. Split into teams and see who can answer questions correctly first! Feel free to include crazy responses too, to keep guests on their toes.
