In a moment of rash stupidity, I promised the TQ that she could have a 6th grade graduation party on the 30th of May. I also prominsed that she could invite as many people as she wants (naively thinking that she's just invite her class and even then most wouldn't be able to come).

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

I am now throwing a party for nearly 50 tweens, male and female.

I have no idea what we are going to do for 3 hours. Food is easy- throw anything edible at them and then stampede. But games????? What are they too old for? How will I keep them from sneaking away to hold hands or- dun, dun, dun- mke out??

I'm a wee bit stressed if you can't tell.

Please, please, please save my sanity. If you have any ideas for entertaining fifty 12 year olds, share.

If this isn't the greatest grad party ever the TQ will never speak to me again.


  1. i am obviously no help...I just wanted to tell you that you make me laugh really hard.

  2. Oh, got in a little over your head huh? Well, I have Apples to Apples if you want to borrow that. A lot of teens like that game, plus it is nice for big or small groups. Music is always good. Other than that, I don't know. Good luck!

  3. Got it...Pop in the Twilight DVD, post a few Edward and Jacob posters around the room, and you've got yourself a party for an unlimited amount of tweenies. You might find them making out with the posters off and on throughout the night, but no harm done.

    Or just throw on some dance music, get a disco ball, and have them play Twister. Or Rock band! The food's the most important part though. I judged every party on the food. Good food, good times. Bad food, bad times.

  4. three words Cage of death.

  5. spin the bottle....7 minutes of heaven (it would have to be under a slide) could have an arts & crafts corner....MARBLES!!! hope that helped :) BTW what time is this shindig?

  6. They can play that stupid new game of your parents. I dont even remember what it is called. Taboo, a few hundred rolls of TP. I cant even remember that far back. Sorry.

  7. Thanks for all the suggestions. Anyone want to come and help??????? :)

    Bryan, I might have to borrow your cage. Did you bring it to the new house?

    We ARE going to play rock band, but with real instruments (dividing them into 5 person bands). I've already got a guitar, violin, trumpet, keyboard, but I need a rtythm section. I guess I'll be raiding DI this week.

  8. duh, party over now, guess you don't need song suggestions, should have read this first
    you are an awesome mom to do this for TQ
