      Question: 13th Birthday Party Ideas

      By Bridgeybee 6 5

      My daughter is turning thirteen in the spring and funds are very limited. She wants to invite about 6 friends and go to the movies. I'm fine with this, but I also might want to do something a little extra. Also, she wants to invite some friends from her Girl Scout troop, some from her new school, and some from her old school. I'm not sure if this is a good idea because it might be awkward.

        Tip: Teen Scavenger Hunt Party

        By rexiringlis1 1

        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.

        Tip: Outdoor Movie Sleepover

        By destinee294 1

        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.

          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?

          Hi Olivia,

          As a father of a girl with epilepsy, I am thrilled to see your interest and concern for your friend.

          The support of her friends is the best thing you can do for her. The first thing to do is to learn how to take care of her if she has a seizure. For the most part it is really easy, just make sure there is nothing around that can hurt her if she is having convulsions.

          There are great sources for how to respond to a seizure.

          You are correct, flashing lights can prompt a seizure in some epilepsy victims. But not all. Falling while ice skating can hurt anyone, just be careful and use reasonable safety precautions.

          But again, the best thing to do is remain a great friend.

          Good Luck

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.

            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!

            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.

              Since this website is 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.

              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.

              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>

              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 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. We went and ate at a restaurant, and then we went to the movies. We went to a really nice hotel room and we got our own hotel room, but it was a conjoined hotel room. Maybe you can do this for your daughter's birthday! Have fun!

                  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!

                  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!

                  I agree... $20 Maybe $40 if you can afford it. In my opinion, if you take your daughters friends to the movies or dinner for her birthday, then yes you should pay. However if shopping is involved I would let the other kids parents know to send their kids with some spending money in case they want to buy something at the mall.

                  Honestly, I have strict parents that hate the noise reaching a high level. But when I tell my friends to shut up we never have fun. Let your kids have fun and be loud if they want because you can always catch up on sleep, but you can't catchup on having fun with your friends and making memorable memories. Honestly every time I get yelled at for the noise ,and have to tell my friends to quiet down, it's embarrassing.

                  At my friends parties, their parents understand we are having fun and it is honestly so much more fun than having to tell my guests every 10 minutes to quiet down.

Make a list of 13 reasons' she is special, all on separate pieces of paper, and give them to her in a pretty box. I hope she knows what a "gift" she is to you. PBP

                    A party for a teen girl (any age) should reflect her personality.

                    Example:

                    If a girl like sports have a sport themed party (Basketball, hockey, soccer, volleyball, etc.) Or if she likes music have a DJ or do karaoke. Have a dance party if she likes dancing. I hope this helped! Good luck!

                    Find a way to provide some music the kids would love and play some Minute to Win It type games. I'll bet you'll find some MTWI games or "Teen games" online. Serve pizza and cake and all will be happy!

                    I'm 13 and this year I basically turned my house into a movie theater...except with a twist. Everybody had to dress up as their favorite actor! There was a red carpet and my aunt & uncle were the paparazzi.

                    I had a bunch of girls bring blow up mattresses and we watched the movie of our choice on netfllix all night. Everyone got 20 tickets to use at the "concession stand" which my mom ran in the kitchen. We had all sorts of snacks such as popcorn which cost 5 tickets, candy bars (3 tickets), ice cream (4 tickets), caprisun (2 tickets) etc.

                    It was really fun and everyone enjoyed themselves. PS if you want boys to come just have them leave earlier instead of sleeping over. Oh and just if you were wondering... my mom was J-lo!

                    I had my 13th not long ago. I went trampolining with 2 friends in the mourning then came home and had 8 more friends come. We did activities like water fights, foam fight, we pinned a load of balloons that we filled with paint on my fence (with a large sheet of paper under) and threw darts at the balloons. We the camped out in my tent and designed some shirts with are names on and the date of the party every one loved it.

                    If you have a pool, swim parties are great. Also maybe order pizza or a bbq. I don't recommend sleepover because of the inviting boys thing (unless your ok with that). Maybe party games as well.

                    Go play laser tag. Or you can go do sports. You can get everyone to bring bikes and go around to a soccer field then play road hockey in front of your house after go to a tennis/basket court then go back home and have pizza and cake. Get everyone to bring hockey sticks and tennis rackets.

                    Some fun themes:

                    Underwater: hang blue streamers everywhere and put fish decorations, blue punch, ocean themed cake, water games

                    80's: challenge guests to dress up as much as they can, watch 80's movies, listen to 80's music etc.

                    Rich and Famous: Treat everyone there like a superstar, wait on them, give them a spa treatment, serve special foods like sushi or expensive chocolate

                    At Home Theater: Transform your house into a movie theater, lots of movies to choose from, delicious popcorn, assorted candy

                    Olympics: Set up fun events like: relays, running races, water balloon fights

                    Dance Party: (especially good for big co-ed parties) set up a large area to play music the birthday girl picks with prizes for best dancing, funniest moves, etc. set up an area where food and drinks can be "ordered"

                    Exotic Location: Transform your house (or party location) into an exotic place, such as France, Australia, or Brazil. Make sure all the food and games are themed to go with it.

                    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.

                    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!

                      Maybe you can find a way to compromise but my guess is she may resent having an all out birthday bash since that's not what she wants....one that she may want to forget rather than remember if she's really opposed.

                      From experience: I was asked if I'd like this or that for special occasions and was given what I said I didn't want anyways.When I realized it didn't really matter what I thought, they were going to do whatever they wanted anyways, it seemed like it was more for them than for me. Nice gifts but the relationship communication meant nothing.

                        How about telling her you will be videoing her Life story of and her friends going all around the places you now live? Starting with your home, their school, place of worship, local park and wherever the kids go for fun.You might want to have a basic idea of a script to suggest to them...to help out and make it fun.

                        You could ask each one to contribute to the script first (perhaps ahead of time or not) and record it once they planned out the story line and where they want to go. They can dress up or not...their call. When they reach some location, you can surprise her with her cake there.

                        They will feel like STARS (and treat them like it!) and later your daughter will have a real memorable account of her past home and friends!

                            I have seen large groups come together to join a community walk or run as a team and it can be a lot of fun while helping an important cause! They are usually well organized and have tons to do to be memorable! She can sign up as the team captain, name the team something fun (or funny) and attendees can dress up even! I used to work for a non profit and we had teams of young people join us all the time!

                            Maybe it can be for a cause close to her heart and benefit everyone!

                              I don't think campfires are dangerous, if you have a proper firepit, however, you likely shouldn't be having one all night long. You might think about all kinds of boards games that you have available. Something like that might be fun. I would have several movies available, so that you can watch them later. Perhaps you could plan on games early in the evening, and movies later. Will you be able to watch the movies outside or in the tent, or will you have to be in the house to watch them?

She doesn't want it at home, but our city hall is $2,000 and I don't have much money because of my bills. Please help me! Any suggestions:)

                                Of course your child wants a big, expensive party to "celebrate her teen years." She may also want a Lamborghini when she starts to drive, and a Alexander McQueen dress for senior prom. I'm assuming she won't get those, so why start a precedent?

                                If her teen years turn out to be pretty great, they'll be some of the best memories of her life. If they don't, having a huge bash won't do any good.

                                I'd suggest asking her to invite only her best friends. Choose a venue that's within your budget but they have to dress up for. This should be an elegant "do." Choose only gifts that are appropriate and tasteful, not stuffed toys or "Made in China" junk. Explain that this represents leaving childhood behind, and the huge gang of friends she wanted to invite would just act like kids and ruin it.

                                Don't forget the red roses.

                                I am having a 13th birthday in September. I am having it at a local hall and, of course, it's a dance party but I don't know what else to do. What if they get bored of just dancing and this party has to be PERFECT. I was thinking of doing a mini fashion show during the party but I don't know if people will like that. I need to know what to do! Please help!

                                Thank you,

                                Marie from Seattle, WA

                                I just turned 13 and i had this party and it was "camper sheek". I just had 13 of my friends over and spent the night making smores, telling secrets and ghost stories. I totally recommend that! (06/15/2006)

                                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)

                                Well my B-day is on july 4th so I thought it would be fun to have fireworks and marshmallows. I also know all my friends like movies and if your watching a movie it goes over well with everyone. Also, you have to make sure you have music and food in case your just sitting and decide to dance or just talk. Trust me, I've had parties like that all the time and it's never boring. (06/24/2006)

                                I'm tuning 13 on july 26th and I'm really excited! I'm going to invite 5 of my closest friends and we are going to have all colored lights hanging in my basement. We are going to blast music, watch movies, have makeovers and tie die pillow cases. We will also order pizza and eat cake. All my friends are really excited and I suggest you try something like it.

                                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.

                                Why not try a pinata full with candy. They are great fun, decorative and the candy is nice. (07/31/2006)

                                Maria, the limo is a great idea but i don't think that the boys would like the fashion show. They would probably get bored and leave but if you get a good DJ, crank up the tunes, and have good food and drinks then you should be fine! (08/14/2006)

                                You could have a black and white birthday party. Have the girls dress up all formal and have the guys in kakis and a white shirt. Kinda formal but if you have a lot of dancing and great food it should be a blast!
