It's nothing big or small but invite a couple of your friends and have a party in your back yard. Just build a fire for marshmallows, get a projector and a white surface and have popcorn. Watch a movie outdoors and spend the night there.

Turn your garage into a dance club. Have some one DJ and let kids dance and have fun. Then turn the kitchen into a bar, remember no achoholic beverages

Great idea about garage party, my daughter will be 13 in april. I am booking a hotel room ahead, checking for best rates online, pick a hotel like drury inn that provides happy hour food, breakfast, popcorn and drink from 3 to 11, girls can play games, enjoy hotel amenties up to 6 girls, jacuzza, etc, hotel will feed them, you bring games to play in room.

I was mystified as what to do with my teenage girl but found a brilliant idea online. A scavenger hunt! We were having a party at the local park and I didn't want 14 teens running around terrorising the locals! So I made up a list of fun things to do or find. They had to take photos of themselves doing it and bring it back to me for proof. Each task had a point value. Tasks included - reflection of whole team but not in a mirror, find an apple, somebody dressed as a super hero, and so on.

Teens loved it! The winning team won iTunes cards, but you could have any prizes. A second hand trophy decorated, bags of lollies, up to you and your budget. This was a very cheap activity to organise, as many children have their own cameras on their phones.

I live in Texas. For my best friend's 13th birthday, we went to the Woodlands Mall and shopped there and just looked around. We didn't spend a lot of money, but we went to Build a Bear Workshop and acted like little kids and it was really fun.

My daughter's birthday is December 23rd. (I brought her home on Christmas Day.) I have no idea what to do.
Being that it is so close to Christmas, I'm afraid no one would show up to a party. Any ideas are appreciated.

My sister's birthday is on Christmas Day and what we do is we have her birthday party on her half birthday. If that doesn't seem like something you want to do, have a birthday party somewhere around New Years like New Year's Eve and have a sleepover party. Hope this helps!

My sister has done plenty of hotel parties. What my mom did was the boys could stay during the day but their parents would have to pick them up before any of the girls went to bed. I hope this helps! :)

My daughter will be 13 in just over a month and can't decide what she would like to do. She wants to bring 2-3 close friends, but doesn't want to do basics like going ice skating, to the cinema, or a pool party, etc. She would prefer to go out and do something with her friends and then come back to the house and have food, play a few games, and maybe even a sleepover. We keep considering ideas and we are at a crossroads right now. Any help would be appreciated.

What you choose to do will depend on what is available in your area. Would the girls like an art museum or history museum? Is there an amusement park, a rollerskating arena, a rockclimbing wall, paintball, laser tag? (Some of these ideas need more than 3, but I am just brainstorming>) What about taking in some kind of live theatre or ballet or comedy show?

Are there tours of anything that they might find interesting such as a hospital, newspaper publishing office, etc. that you might set up for them. Maybe they would like to do some volunteer work, such as help out at an animal shelter. Is there a zoo or could you take them to a working farm? Perhaps something might be on like a garden show or a fashion show, and then they could go to a fancy restaurant for high tea? Some of these ideas are pretty far out, but I hope I have stimulated your imagination, and you will find something fun for all.

I want to have a fun birthday party that won't get boring. I am planning on having 20-30 people (boys and girls) and then 2-3 people spending the night. I want to go somewhere, have everything planned, and only spend $100 at most. Also it is in April, winter here, so please hurry. I am sort of a girly girl, but most of my friends are tomboys or boys. I live in eastern Iowa so something close. Thanks!

You can throw your party at a local park and have BBQ hotdogs. Hot dogs are quite affordable along with some chips, sodas/water, cake.

You can play flag football, water balloon fight, fun outdoor activities since there will be a lot of people.

My friend and I were planing to go ice skating, but she found out that she has epilepsy and if she falls she can get hurt. Everything I think of can harm her. She can't swim, see flashing lights, or anything fun. My parents don't even want her to sleep over because they would not be able to live with it if something happened to her. I won't celebrate my birthday without my one and only best friend. What can we do that's safe?

Have a talk with her parents, and find out what activities she can take part in. I expect as she becomes more used to living with epilepsy, she will be able to do more things. Perhaps you can do something quite different like take in some live theatre or take part in a craft class. My town is on a river, and there are houseboat rides down the river that are fun; people have BBQ's on the boat and enjoy the views. Investigate other activities that your friend would be able to do that are unique to your town. How about a trip to the zoo?

I'm turning 13 in April and I want a big party around 30-40 people (boys and girls), but I don't want a disco because all my friends at school are having a disco. I'm a girly girl, but if I have anything girly then the boys might not want to come.

Check thrift stores and garage sales for dress up clothes, shoes and accessories. (These can be donated back to thrift store after party). Give the girls a room to change in. They can pretend to be at a fashion show. They girls can dress up and walk down a hall as a runway. They can then enter living room and contue to show off the clothes. You can invite friends, family or other girls moms to be the viewing public. The girls can model multiple dresses and change accessories to make it different from what someone else wore. After the fashion show, have a table with a menu for each girl. They can place their order for the cake and ice cream. I bet they will have a lot of fun and you will also. Be sure to take lots of pictures and make sure that the girls get some as soon as you get them printed.

Ok I am turning 13 in April, and I never know what to do for my birthday. I'm not really girly, and I have already done the skating rink and sleepover at my house thing. I want to take friends to a water park or amusement park like Six Flags, but I don't want to spend too much money.

Also, everyone else has had their parties at The Bear, which is a place downtown that they rent out the top floor which has pool tables, snacks, dance floor, all you can drink Shirley temples and Lori Rogers, but it's gotten boring. The first two parties, everyone danced (except some twerked). Now everyone just sits and talks, and it's no fun. I don't want to do a spa party or any girly thing like that. Also, I am not interested in a mall or pool party (I don't have a pool). I need help so badly. Please help!

Have it at your house to not make it too pricy. The girls could do each others nails and facials. Also, the can dip there feet in Orbeez and rose petals. When it gets later they could do a talent show which gives the cheerleaders a time to show off their skills. In addition, they can do a photo shoot. You can get props at the dollar store or local thrift shop. Good luck and I hope my ideas helped!

My 13 year old wants an iPhone 6 Plus and I said I was getting it for her and she also wants a party. She is spoiled so we need something big and fast cause her birthday is soon and she is kinda moody if she doesn't get her own way. She likes horseback riding, dancing, ice skating, and shopping. Anyone got some ideas? Comment back please. Thanks.

You have to be wise. You don't want your child to turn into a bigger brat then you said she is now. Give her the party, but then have her work for the phone, like helping around the house.n

My birthday is on March 26th, but we are away then so we are celebrating in late February, early March. I am inviting 17 friends, ages 12-14. I don't want to do a typical movie party. I am outgoing, not girly. I love swimming, but I am Canadian, so the weather is very cold! My budget is 100-200 dollars, not including food or goodie bags, it is just for the activities. Any ideas?
Thx.

I'm turning 13 in February and I'm starting to think about what I should do for my party. I was thinking about going ice skating with my friends, but once I saw the price tag, I knew I couldn't do that to my parents. I don't really want to have a party at home, I want to go out and do something. I would probably be inviting around 10 people. Please help!

My daughter is turning 13 in May and we are trying to plan something without relying on the weather cause we don't have an undercover area and our house is small. There are 20 girls and we were going to do a campout sleepover watching an outdoor movie, toasting marshmallows, pizza, movie food, etc. Any other suggestions for this amount of girls or does this sound good?

That sounds awesome! I wouldn't plan to much more because at that age, girls just like to gossip about boys and school, so you need to leave room for that!

I would suggest a classic movie, like "Now and Than". I think I watched that movie for the first time in Jr High and it is still a favorite!

It's my 13th birthday and I can't think of anything to plan! Last time I did a "Minute to Win It" birthday which went really well. I don't just want a simple get together with friends, I want to have fun. It should not be too costly. I am not allowed a sleep over. It should be creative and something my friends and I will enjoy! It could also be a theme. Any ideas?

I have two ideas for my thirteenth birthday and I can't decide. My first idea is to have a beach themed party at my house with a tiki bar, as we have a huge pool area and my sister wants to be a bar tender. My second is a slumber party with movies and spas.
