This is a fun one to get everyone at the party involved. Make sticky notes with each of your guests’ names and place each one on the back of someone new.
Then, everyone has to spend the party asking yes or no questions until they can figure out what person is on their back.
This is such a cute spin on a classic game! You can either find a fun graduation-themed mad lib online or make up your own. Either way, it is sure to be a hilarious game to play at your party.
Grad through the years
This is one of my favorite of all the graduation party games on this list. For this game, you need to print out pictures of the graduate throughout his/her life. Then, mix up the order of the pictures and number each one.
Each of your guests has to guess what the correct order of the pictures is based on the age of the graduate. The person who guesses the closest wins!
Charades is a classic game that everyone will know and love. You can play regular charades or make it graduation themed!
Pin the tassel on the grad cap
This might be a kid’s game, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play it at your graduation party!
All you need to do is tape a grad cap onto the wall and then have people take turns trying to pin the tassel in the middle. Remember to blindfold each person before they go so there’s no cheating!
Gather all of you and your friend’s favorite photos from your high school and college years and pin them all to the wall. Then, let all the guests make up superlatives for each of the photos.
This is such a cute way to hold onto all of your favorite memories from your years at school.
Words of wisdom
Another cute graduation party activity is to have little words of wisdom cards for guests to write to the graduate. You can either have blank cards for them to leave a personalized message or you can have question prompts for them to answer.
Either way, you are sure to be left with a bunch of great advice for your future from all your guests!
Guess the baby grad
If you are having a grad party with a bunch of friends, guess the baby grad is the perfect game! Have each graduate bring a baby picture of themselves.
Then, put all the pictures together and have your guests try to guess who is who!
grad cap tic-tac-toe
Make use of all the graduation items by planning grad cap tic tac toe. Get cheap graduation caps and paint each either X’s or O’s. Then, set up a tic tac toe grid with tape on the ground and use the graduation caps as your moves.
Trivia with all your guests is always a fun way to fill some time during your party. You can do trivia about the graduate, their high school, or their college.
How well do you know the graduate
Similar to trivia, this is another game to play that is specific to the graduate. Ask the graduate questions and have them answer in advance. Then, ask your guests all the same questions and see who knows the graduate best!
Graduation bingo is such a fun game for your graduation party! You can either download grad bingo printables for each guest or make your own with your favorite pictures.
Has the grad ever…
This is a twist on never have I ever, except this time it’s all about the graduate. Have guests guess what the grad has or hasn’t done throughout their high school or college years.
Guess the mascot
This is another graduation party game for parties with a lot of graduates. For this game, you need the mascots of all of the colleges of the graduates.
Then, all of the guests have to guess which mascot is for which school.
Graduation yard games
If you want some easy lawn games that you can leave around your backyard during your party, here are all my favorites! Most of these are classics that everyone knows and loves, so they are sure to make your party so much more fun.
