Pick a favorite game, and use it as the inspiration for your game night decor. If you love Twister, make your pad Twister-ific by decorating with red, blue, green and yellow balloons and polka-dot streamers.
To get in the mood for this kid-friendly party theme, deck out your party room like a teenage bedroom or a college dorm room with rock posters, cutout pictures of celebrity crushes and club flyers. Spread blankets, quilts and pillows on the floor to create a casual atmosphere where guests can spread out and get comfortable.
Board game suggestions for your game night party:
- Monopoly Junior Edition
- Trivial Pursuit for Kids
- Pictionary Junior
- Clue Jr.
- Cranium Hullabaloo
- Scrabble Junior Edition
- Candy Land
- Apples to Apples
- Hi Ho! Cherry-O
- Yahtzee Jr.
Keep in mind that you're not limited to store-bought games. For games like charades and the name game, all you need are strips of paper and a good imagination. To create your own word game, find obscure words in a dictionary, and have guests guess their meanings.
