5. Salad Bowl Game

Games that get the kids talking about their favorite memories and their future goals will make your graduation party truly special. This game has them both. All you need is a large bowl, some paper and pens, and you’ve got the beginning of a meaningful game that the kids will enjoy and remember forever.

  • Cut pieces of paper into strips long and wide enough to fit three or four sentences on it.
  • Hand out pens or pencils.
  • Ask everyone to write down either a special memory from high school or a future goal of theirs, depending on what they desire.
  • Some examples could be, “my favorite memory of high school was watching the football team take state championships” or “my future goal is to travel to at least three continents before I turn 25,” etc.
  • Have a large “salad bowl” on a table on the center of the room.
  • Ask each person to crinkle up their paper and place it in the bowl.
  • When the bowl is full, ask everyone to sit in a circle.
  • One person holds the bowl and pulls out a paper. He or she reads the paper and tries to guess who wrote it. Encourage them to express why they think it belongs to a certain person, for instance “I think this one belongs to John because he’s an adventurous spirit,” etc.
  • The bowl is passed around the circle until everyone has had a turn!
