DIY Hen T-shirts!

Purchasing customized hen t-shirts can be very costly. They can range from €15 to €25 per person. This is especially extra costly if you have a large group of hens at your party. It can be costly for you and as well as your hens. You can easily cut down the price by using transfer paper, a printer and an iron. I have a link to a perfect tutorial that involves glitter and some DIY-ing! I am sure this will cut the cost as well as make you some fabulous t-shirts!

7 Best Hen Party Games

What is a hen party without fun games that get you giggling and most importantly a little bit tipsy? These hen party games are bound to make you LOL. Here are the seven best hen party games out there that will create your last day of freedom a day to remember!

1 – Maltesers Mouth

This game is very simple but is sure to bring out those laughs. First, get  all your hens to sit around in a circle and empty a packet of those delightful Maltesers into a bowl. Leave the Maltesers bowl in the middle of the table (you might see some hens drooling at this pleasant site.) 

Pass a drinking straw around along with a bowl for each hen.
Each member has exactly 30 seconds to try and pick up Maltesers using the straw and pop it in their own bowl. No hands allowed!

The game finishes when everyone has had their turn. 

Member with the most Maltesers in their bowl wins! They might get another packet of Maltesers all for themselves as a prize!

What you need: Maltesers, drinking straws, bowls.

2- The Bubble Gum Game 

This game requires a bride-to- be.

All hens should start by writing down few questions about the groom (hens should drill the groom before the party to dish out those juicy secrets) 

Once all the questions have been written down, gather them all into a bowl and hand the bowl to the bride.

The bride opens each note and tries to answer the questions.

For any wrong answer, she must put the bubble gum in her mouth. 

The harder the questions, more fun the game becomes, so make sure to drill the groom down for the deep stuff. 

All fun and laughs sides, do make sure that the bride doesn’t choke! 

What you need: Bubble gum, bowl, questions about the groom.hen party games - bubble gum

This hen party game can be as risky or as hilarious as you want. All you need to do is brainstorm some reckless dares and write them down on a piece of paper. 

Put each dare into a balloon. 

Line up all the hens and ask them to pop each balloon, whichever dare they get, they must do! 

Make it extra funny – they must pop the balloon with their bum.

Now, it’s time for the bride to match the memory to the correct hen. 

For every wrong answer, the bride must be punished! Punishments can be from dares to drinking, the ultimate power resides with the hens.
