My daughter is having her 12th birthday party this December and we don't know what to do! Please don't say any sleepovers or coming-to-the house parties. Thanks.

Bowling parties are always fun. Most of the craft stores that are chains offer parties; paint some pottery type stores usually have parties; some pizza places still have parties; some beauty shops have makeover parties; and so on. Your community Y or pool might offer parties; or the local gymnastics center.
Or you could see about using a church hall or community center and have a party there. Maybe you could borrow a karaoke machine or perhaps a friend would offer to be the "DJ."
Or you could be creative and do a hike in a local nature area, or do a community service project. (06/08/2010)
I think taking the girls to a movie would be nice, and then if you are not going to take them home for cake and ice cream, how about to some place like the Dairy Queen for the birthday cake? In my experience kids are crazy over ice cream cakes. (06/09/2010)
How about going to the local water park for the day? Or a scavenger hunt through the neighborhood before a cook out? You could have an artistic college student host a bracelet making party at your home. Good luck. (06/09/2010)
Our local public pool can be rented out for parties. By the hour. My son does this as an end of the year treat for his taekwondo students, family and 1 friend. Any number of people costs him $130 for one hour. Water slides, etc. Some of those kids never get to the water park except for the summer party. (06/09/2010)
