Graduation Party Game: Guess the Grade

Party, Styling, Text and Photos by Sara Schmutz of Confetti Sunshine

Every good party should have a game, and high school graduation celebrations are no different. “Guess the Grade” is an easy game with balloons that highlights the graduate with photos through the years. It is also a great conversation starter that doubles as decor.

To play the game, hand a guessing card to each party guest and instruct them to match the photo with the grade the graduate was in at that time. At the end of the night, announce which picture goes with which grade. The person with the most correct answers wins.

Here’s how to create the “Guess the Grade” game for your graduation party.

  4. Tape the “Guess the Grade” card onto a balloon just like the pictures.
