Tip: Teen Scavenger Hunt Party

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.

Supplies:

  • Paper ($1)

Tip: Outdoor Movie Sleepover

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.

    Since this is summer, have a BBQ at a park. Let them play volley ball, have a water balloon fight, tug of war, pinyata, have a baseball game-if the girls don't want to play they can be cheerleaders. Serve hot dogs, watermelon, potato salad, chips and dip, cake topped with whipped cream instead of ice cream, or have cup cakes. Use paper plates and cups that way there's no really big mess to clean, and everybody has fun and the kids get worn out.

    Also you can have them do a simple craft and judge it for funnyist, most colorful-you get the idea. I did this and everyone had a great time. Oh, and take lot's of pictures. Good luck and I hope this helps.

    Question: Birthday Ideas

    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?

    You've probably already had your birthday. I hope it was fun. I have a daughter who has epilepsy and she's 13. She is able to participate in all the activities you mentioned in your original post but she only has her seizures at night when she goes to bed. She had a couple small seizures at school once but normally we don't have to worry about her day to day activities. She swims, participates in dance, rides roller coasters, sees fireworks, etc.

    However, I realize there are many different kinds of epilepsy and my daughter has a mild case compared to others who have seizures daily. If your friend has seizures during the day you could have a party that her parents come to with her and stay during. They can be there in case something happens to her and this way she can still participate in the activities.

    I haven't let my daughter have sleep overs with her friends up to this point because her seizures happen at night, so maybe for your friend sleeping over is not in her best interest if your parents do not feel comfortable with handling the situation if she did have a seizure. With her parents present, I don't see why she can't swim or do any other activities you decide to do.

    Hi!
    1. Have you heard of the game "Apples to Apples"? During my junior year of high school I was a peer mentor for the Freshmen students in my homeroom. Most of them were around 14 or 15, and the game was a real hit! Basically, Apples to Apples is a matching game where one person draws from a deck of cards and asks the group to find cards that either match the concept or are complete opposites. The goal is to come up with the funniest combination!

    2. You're daughter might like a movie themed party. Fun, games, popcorn, character dress-up, and a movie!

    Question: 13th Birthday Party Ideas

    My daughter is stressing through her 13th birthday. She doesn't know what to do. She wants to invite some boys and some girls. She doesn't want too much money spent, but also fun though. She has thought of movies, but we have no projection. She's thought of creating shirts, but the guys won't enjoy it. These kids are coming from her track team and her birthday is in October. I'm honestly having the same problem. Please help.

    Question: 13th Birthday Surprise Party Ideas

    I want to throw a surprise party for my friend.
    I want it to be special because I have known her for so long, and she wants to invite 50+ people. I don't know what to do. She is a girly girl and a little bit of a tom boy.
    Her birthday is in the winter and she never knows what to do. I need some ideas for what I can do to make it special.
    Her mom will be paying for it, but I get to make up the ideas and all the other stuff. I don't want it to be too expensive, but expensive enough where she will have a great time.

    Personally, I think 50 guests is way too many. 14 or 15 is more than enough. If it is a surprise party, I don't know how the birthday girl knows how many guests are invited; it seems as if she is expecting the party. If the surprise part is just that she doesn't know what kind of party it will be, I suppose that makes sense. I think you should talk the whole idea over with her mom, and find out what she says with regard to budget and number of guests before you do anything else.

    They would probably love making a craft. Check your local craft store and see what they have. I know Tie-dye kits or decorating t-shirts is usually popular and you can pick up men's undershirts pretty cheap. Fimo clay crafts are fun as is decorating picture frames. There are a million craft projects posted here on ThirftyFun to chose from too. There was a bracelet craft using pony beads posted recently that could be a good "art" craft for them.

    Since this is a newsletter entitled "Thrifty Fun", I don't think we are the people to ask about a birthday party with a budget of $1000. I, personally, think that that amount of money spent on a 13th birthday party is far too much. You must be very well off.

    <p>How about a birthday party where the theme is helping others? I know some children have a party where the other children don't bring gifts, but spend the money on food for the animals for a local animal shelter, and then after cake and singing happy birthday, part of the party is to visit the shelter and donate the gifts. Of course, the birthday girl donates something as well, as well as all her guests. They can still have fun in a park or play board games or watch movies.</p>

    <p>Alternately, they could give food or cash to the food bank, but I think that the animal shelter is a good idea because then the kids can see the animals that are going to be fed with their donations. They will not see results of the money or food they donate to the food bank. Your daughter seems to very blessed and want for nothing if she is 10 and gets to go on cruise. Perhaps some thoughts for others less fortunate would make this a special birthday.</p>

    I know a great place for indoor soccer parties called Futsal where you can rent a soccer field for a couple hours and then order lunch or dinner (whenever the birthday is) and eat it there. You can bring zebra print napkins, plates, a cake, and even some soccer balls to play with (they provide them at Futsal). ITs a really fun way to combine activities you love and styles you love!

    Question: Planning a Surprise 13th Birthday Party

    I'm trying to plan a surprise party for my best friend. Her little sisters (there's three of them) get a birthday party every year and, by the time it comes to her birthday, her mum and dad can't afford a birthday party for her.

    I've only known her a year, but we're already like sisters, so I want to throw her the best party ever. I've decided to make the party chocolate/baking theme (she loves both), but I don't know how to do it. It can't be at her house, I might be able to do it at my house. She also loves Olly Murs, swimming, singing, and playing the violin (we get lessons together).

    Is there a roller skating rink in your town? Most of them have birthday party rates and also serve pizza, burgers, etc. The reservation should also include the roller skate rentals for the party goers. Arrive at the reserved time, check in, find out how much skating time you can have and if you have to eat at a certain time. I guarantee, even the bad skaters (boys and girls) will have a good time. Earlier in the day is usually cheaper. Good Luck!

    Question: 13th Birthday Party Ideas

    I'm planning a birthday party for my daughter. She's a real tomboy and loves softball/baseball. She plans on inviting most of her girl friends and a couple of her "guy friends", as she calls them. I want it to be pretty special, because, you know, it's a special day. Other things she likes are ninjas and wolves.

    Since she's a tom-boy, if you have a big garden or a local park - even a beach could work. You could have games of whatever sport she likes most and if the girly-girls don't want to play then they could be cheerleaders! After that, they could have a picnic and ice-cream.

    You could arrange other activities that is for boys and girls; like a contest where you hide certain objects and they have to find them (on teams). Take a picture of them pulling a weird face with it, and then when the amount of time given to find as many things as you can ends, the team with the most I things wins! You could add in a quiz about teen things or about the Birthday Girl too! This could be instead or after/before.

    Or on the beach (if hot) you could have a water-balloon fight, a tug-of-war, a Barbaque (and ice-cream if wanted) and maybe even hire a boat or cannoe (or something) and go for a paddle in the sea (if it is calm)! Does she like parties? -If she does you could hire a hall or simply a room in your house, and put up neon lights e.t.c with some classic disco games. If she likes something else, then what about going to a restraunt or bowling, swimming pool or Laser Quest?

    You can get a ton of party decorations and lights and completely transform your basement/ whatever room into a like a mini, club, colored lights, snack table, loud music, and in the end, you can get a giant tub of ice cream (Party Buckets are the best type for this) and give them spoons and let them plow through the tub. Later, have them play games, like hide and seek in the dark, or truth or dare. Maybe even have a contest of some sort. When they get tired, they can sleepover and watch movies while doing each other's hair and nails.

    Sleepovers are always good. If you want to make it really special maybe even a surprise party. For my daughters 13th birthday she had a dress up party, watched a movie and chilled around the house. This also depends on how many people will be invited.

    With a small guest list like this, you can have options for lots of good activities. You could take them to the movies and buy popcorn and drinks; then have cake at home, decorated with something that your daughter likes - colours, flowers, movie star, etc. The pool is always a good option in the summer. With only three gals, you could do a spa day at home - manis and pedis - they give them to each other, and each girl gets a bottle of nail polish to take home.

    If you are near an amusement park, that would be fun. Take in a play - lots of kids have never seen live theater. Some kids like museums and science centers and art galleries and things like that; ask your daughter. Another idea is to do an activity, and then go to a fancier restaurant for some luscious dessert like fancy cheesecakes or something like that. If you inform the restaurant, the staff almost always has candles on the cake (or you can bring them ahead of time and they will put them on), and will sing happy birthday. This was a thrill when I had my 16 & 18 year old sons & their friends out and about, so I am sure that 13 year old girls would love it too!

    Play the backwards game. find a couple of simple or difficult questions to ask the girls. they take turns answering questions incorrectly. for example you ask "are you wearing pants?" Then in order to get a point, they must answer "no". choose some names of guys at their school and maybe say "are you secretly in love with ______". They will get a real kick out of that. Come up with your own pointage system or don't use one at all.

    If she is a girly type you could get a few different colors of glitter nail polish and some of the washout hair chalk and have a "day of beauty". Walgreens has some full size bottles for about $2, or if you have a Sally's Beauty Supply near you they have a great selection under the Sally Girl line. That line includes tons of colors of little bottle of nail polish for .99 each, great for gift bags as well. They even have a small glow in the dark polish for .99. They have lip glosses and lotions in the .99 line too. It's like 1 stop shopping.

    Skating rink or Pool party (YMCA). Kick ball would be a fun and easy outdoor sport, anywhere there's a park with a field. Or have them learn Ultimate Frisbee from youtube and play that there. Oh, super fun would be to find a Disc/Frisbee Golf course in your area. They are usually set up in public parks or in other wooded areas. Disc Golf is fun and being in the woods is awesome.

    Definitely a theme! Especially with something she likes! Not too babyish though. Maybe a skating party,or a "dress up" party with a fashion show. Runways, thrift store clothes, even take the girls shopping and let them pick out their outfits (setting a certain amount). Cake could be in the shape of a dress (dress with ribbon), rope lights on the runway and on and on.

    Here are some fun ideas for girls who are turning 13,
    a mall party or trip, you can take the girls to the mall and they can buy some things. you can give them money or tell them to bring money, whichever you prefer. Also a movie night is good. Another fun idea is a spa night, it gives the girls a relaxing time with each other and it gives them a chance to talk.

    Since the girls are pretty much teenagers, they like freedom to do things on their own. So you should make the party flexible and not too organized, give them the chance to talk and hangout but still have activities planned.
    I hope some of these ideas help you!

    Make a box of props (hats, dress ups, household items, other random stuff), and have each child pick an item from the box. Divide kids into groups of 3 or 4, and have them come up with a short play to perform using the props they picked from the box. This is a good cheap activity that can keep the kids occupied for ages! :)

    Check with local hotels to see if they would allow you to have a swimming party there. Mom and Pop ones are more willing than chains. My 10 year old son is going to have a pool party. The worst part is waiting for rsvp's, seems nobody rsvp's anymore and I gave two phone numbers and my email and some parents see me every day and still can't rsvp. You may have to contact several families as they might not contact you.

    Well I'm having my 13th birthday as a sleepover at night. Some things you could do is if it's all girls you could set up a long table and put some dangling lights around your house or where ever the party is held.

    Then you can eat like a pizza for lunch, but then for dessert you can get a mini 3 layer cake pan on amazon and give each girl their own icing set of what ever flavor they like. So they get to frost their own mini cakes and have fun while doing it. When they are done you can get a few red box movies for really cheap so they can stay up all night and eat popcorn and watch moviesgossip...etc..

    I was given some Mariah Carey perfume for Christmas. You could get a bottle and spray each guest with it as they arrive. I live in Australia and I saw the perfume for around $20 per bottle. As you live in USA I am sure it would be cheaper and you could give each guest a small bottle. The one I have is call M. It is a very cute purple bottle with a butterfly lid see picture on this website

    http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Mariah-Carey/M-1151.html

    You can also Google Mariah Carey merchandise or even check on Ebay
    You could have a Mariah Carey Trivia Quiz check out this website for her biography
    http://mariahcareybiography.com/

    You could get some Mariah posters,stickers, and of course only play her music.
    If I think of anything else I will post it.

    RE: 13th Birthday Party Ideas

    A Hollywood party sounds fun. Have everyone dress as glamorously as possible or even as their favorite media star. A "red carpet" would be nice to step out of the limo onto. Your parents could take lots of flash pictures as "stars" walk the red carpet. Movie sound track music would be good. How about trays of fancy finger-food and bubbly soft-drinks in plastic stemware. You could have a parent tape interviews and video everyone. Karaoke (sorry about spelling) would be fun too. Hope these ideas help. (06/21/2006)

    RE: 13th Birthday Party Ideas

    Ok listen everyone do not freak out! Remember most of the people you are inviting for your big thirteen are coming for YOU not the party! Listen there are some very basic games to play like...

    Motor mouth and other stuff! I suggest you start with a little soft music. You have a quiet room with no music so that people who wanna take a break from the dance floor can chill out, eat and play some board games or cards in that room. Remember IF POSSIBLE: little drinks with umbrellas are a must because they so cute! more fun things to do are maybe having them bring there swimsuits and have a water balloon fight! you could probably have karaoke and an american idol thing. just remember most of your guests are there for YOU not the PARTY.
