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!

    Today is my daughter's 13th birthday, and she requested to invite boys to her sleep-over. I said yes. I think that staying away from all the gender-stereotyping that's so prevalent these days will help my kids to be more confident about being their own, unique selves. Of course, the boys will NOT be sleeping in the same room as the girls, but rather will be spending from 9pm on hanging out in my son's room (or possibly the living room) playing video games until they crash out. I won't be getting any sleep, but as a parent of 4 children, I'm pretty used to that already!! The girls and I will be doing manicures and mud masks until bedtime.

    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.

      That's ridiculous. You admit she is spoiled, but you still are getting her a phone and a big party. Have her pick between a big present or a big party. Explain to her that it doesn't mean she gets one or the other, but one aspect of her birthday will be less expensive.

      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.

        I have just turned 13 and i'm quite girly, but ziplining, quad biking and hiking can maybe work. We went to a chocolate factory and made chocolate for my party! It was AWESOME!

        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?

        My sister is turning 13 on August 2 but since it's on a Tuesday this year I'm going to do her party on July 30. She's turning into a teenager and I know she's tired of a homemade cake and hotel. I was wondering does anybody have some spectacular parties idea? I have rented a huge building.

          My daughter is having her 13th birthday party and I have to make it a surprise. I have so many ideas but no idea what to do because it is in October. Se is kind of girly but sort of tom boyish. She isn't expecting anything big, but I want to make it very special because she is going to be a teen soon. Any suggestions would be helpful.

            How about a Surprise Cake? My sister made one for me for to celebrate my BIG 5-0 and I had so much fun with it. Here's what you do. Bake any one rectangle cake. Cool completely. Using a spoon circle out 13 areas anywhere on the cake and save each piece to put back on. Into the spaces put any kind of small prize. Cover with the pieces and ice the cake as usual adding the 13 candles. On the day of your daughters birthday after the singing of Happy Birthday tell her that somewhere inside the cake prizes are hidden. What fun all will have watching her search for them.

            NOTE: Since my cake was taken apart, my sister made another cake for everyone to have a piece of.

            I will always remember how much fun it was searching for my prizes, I still have them. How thoughtful it was for my sister to make it for me.

            My daughter is turning 13 in March. She wants to finally have a boy-girl party, but we live in a townhouse so we can't have a lot of people over; and she is embarrassed of how small our house is. She really wants to have a laser tag party, but every place I look up, is either 30, 20, or 15 dollars per person with a minimum of 8-10 people. We have no idea what to do.

            She wants to invite about 10-20 people, all are 12-13 years old, I have cleared that with her, but she is going to have mostly girls. She might just want a pool party, but that's not open until June. I feel really bad because we don't have much money to just throw around. She really wants to make this an amazing party because she is inviting her "crush". I am a clueless mom from the 80s (lol) so I think easy, but this generation is crazy and I need to get caught up. Please help!

            Check with a YMCA for a indoor pool. Last year I planned a surprise 12th birthday party at the local YMCA. They provided two lifeguards, party room and a hostess. Surprisingly the cost was cheap! We brought decorations, drinks, chips, iPod, favors and ordered pizza.

            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?

            Here are a few suggestions for your daughter turning 13:

            You could go out and watch a movie/watch one at your house, have pizza and crisps

            Have a girly night - spa things - pizza - movie

            Do something adventorous - go camping -

            My daughter is turning 13 this year and is having difficulties planning a party. We have about 7 people in mind, but there's only one problem. She's homeschooled, so all of her friends are from different activities (Co-op, art class, etc.) and don't know each other. Even worse, they're all pretty shy. Does anyone have any ideas for a party that will minimize awkwardness? Nothing like spa night, please - they're all fairly mature for their ages.
            Thanks!

              My daughter is turning 13 this August and she has been looking forward to this birthday for a very long time so she wants it to be perfect. She is not girly at all - she's very into superheroes and highly dislikes any kind of beauty activities.

              The main problem is it has been a rough year for her. She doesn't really have any friends that she feels close to. She is always complaining about how critical and brutally honest they are. She is very lazy and doesn't do any kind of sports. So, because she isn't a part of any team or club and it is summer, there is not a very good chance she'll make some friends by her birthday. I tried convincing her to just invite the 4 or 5 girls she knows, but she's worried about what to do. Obviously she wants to have fun and do activities she enjoys, but these other girls don't share any of the same interests as her. Everyone last year (which was the same girls she knows now) at her birthday party was just kind of bored the whole time. I'm not a big social mom so I don't really interact with the kids. My daughter is also very stubborn so it's near impossible to plan any kind of organized party/sleepover.

              We have considered just a party with family, but we are not all too close with most of our family and the few cousins she is fairly close to are much older than her and would not really want to come. Please help. She is freaking out about this constantly which is definitely putting stress on me to fix this. Our family has a short budget and a fairly tiny home. Along with my daughter I also have 3 sons, all 18+ who live at home and will get in the way of her party. She would prefer a sleepover even if it was only with one of the people from the party. Her birthday is August 3rd (we won't do the party that day - that is for celebrating at home) and school starts back up August 11th so we also need a good date where people won't be on vacation. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

                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.

                    There's ice skating, rollerblading (like renting out a skating rink for a birthday party), or you could have a small party at your house with a bunch of cool activities like a scavenger hunt!

                    My daughter's 13th birthday is on the 30th of March. I need some ideas for a surprise party for her. I don't think it will be too many kids, maybe 5-10. I'm taking her on a cruise at the end of February, but she don't think that's for her birthday. Can you help me please?

                    Whatever I do it needs to be a surprise. I'm not too worried about the cost, but no more than a thousand bucks. I want her to remember this party for the rest of her life. Please and thank You.

                    I like the idea of having fun while helping others, too.

                    A friend of ours always tells us not to bring their child gifts, but to bring a donation of a jar of peanut butter to donate to the food bank instead. Perhaps spend a morning at a nursing home, painting the nails of some residents. Then have a party booked at a nail salon that specializes in girly birthday parties, which may cost up to $200. My daughter's main wish is to have all her best friends sleep overnight, which won't cost much except for refreshments. Then you could donate the rest to a worthy cause, like a children's hospital or something. Just an idea.
