DIY Night Games Gift Basket

Summertime is here and I have a super fun and easy DIY Night Games Gift Basket that would make a great gift for tweens and teens! This idea came about after an epic birthday party I threw for my then 11-year-old son. We did a night games party at a park and it was a huge hit with all of the boys. I decided it would be fun to turn it into a DIY Night Games Gift Basket. 

I included 10  Night Games Instruction Cards that you can print out and attach to the bucket so the kids will have fresh new game ideas. You can download these from my FREE Gift Printables Library! Just put in your email below and sign-up for my newsletter. You’ll get an email with a password for my free library full of great printables for gift giving!

What’s In This Gift Basket

Bucket (I chose a dark black one to go with the theme). 

Long Glow Sticks (glow necklaces) 

Short Glow Sticks (glow bracelets) 

Beach Ball

Glow Ball


Plastic Container with screw on lid (for kick the can)

Fluorescent Fabric Flags (I bought bright yellow fabric and cut it into triangles…easy peasy) You could also use normal fabric and line it with the glow-in-the-dark paint below.  

Glow-in-the-dark Duct Tape


LED Balloons (these are so fun to play with!) 

Glow-in-the-dark squishies (because, well squishies that GLOW!) 

And don’t forget to print off all of these FUN Night Games Instruction Cards! I attach them with a metal loop to the bucket.



What do you think? Do you know some tweens or teens who would love a basket full of night games? 


Happy Gifting!
