My daughter is turning 13 in December and I am trying to come up with great party ideas to throw at her. I always let them choose their party themes, but this year she doesn't know what to do. She's kind of shy and gets embarrassed easily. I want to come up with some cool ideas, since she can't have a pool party, like her sister.
It's hard to come up with party ideas for her, because her birthday is so close to Christmas. It's in the winter so it's usually too cold to do much outside. She wants to be seen as a teen, but she still wants to be a kid too. It's not going to be a coed party. Any ideas would be great! Thanks.

We've done a Bunco party which was a BIG hit! You can buy the boxed game anywhere and you would need to provide a small gift for each of the girls.
Another idea for this age is a boxed Mystery Game Party. We just did this last month but as it was for a 10 year old, we did an American Girl Mystery Game Party. The invites that get sent out tell the girl their character and how they should dress. They are each given a script when they arrive - it was a lot of fun and everyone participated by dressing up and having fun. Hope this helps you! (05/20/2009)
I have the same problem with my granddaughter. Her birthday is in Nov. What we started doing was celebrating her 1/2 year birthday in June and since we have a pool and it's in summer time, it opens many opportunities. Her friends were told about the situation and it was great. Then on her real birthday we had a family dinner. It worked for us for many many years. Her friends gave her gifts at her party but we waited until the dinner. Kids who have birthdays during Christmas seem to lose out sometimes. (05/21/2009)
You can still have a summer party in the winter. It's that time now. Pick up some summer time stuff. Picnic tablecloth, some summer glasses, get coolers, sand for a small sand box. Get anything that your child likes in the summer and keep it for a summer time fun in the middle of winter. (05/21/2009)
