14 year old boys vary a lot in what they and their friends like to do. Planning a birthday party for this age group can be overwhelming for the parents and the teen. This is a guide about 14th birthday party ideas for boys.
I turn 14 in November and I think I'm going to hire a hall. I would like to invite around 30 - 40 people, but I'm not sure about the theme, or what to do. I know my party is ages away, but last year I planned it two weeks before and it ended in disaster, so I though I would plan early this year. Please help me, any suggestions would be good.
Planning ahead is really smart, Charlie. Why don't you make a list of everything you think you'll need? The hall itself, music (if you want your guests to be entertained; either a live band or DJ), food, beverages, decorations, other entertainment? You'll want to know how much it's all going to cost, right? And the people you hire for the celebration will likely want deposits ahead of time so they know you're serious and you know they'll show up. Planning is fun! Share the excitement by asking a couple of friends to help you with the lists and research and ideas?
My son is turning 14 and I have no money. How can I make this day fun for him?

Find some sort of event or activity that costs very little. There may be something free that you can have him invite his friends to, and they can all go together. Maybe you can take them so a beach or something. Maybe just have a group go to the park and play ultimate Frisbee or soccer or whatever they might like. If you can afford a wiener roast, have that after they have enjoyed some games. If you cannot, perhaps just cake and drinks.
Try the website "freecycle.org" to find a chapter in your area. People on there give away all kinds of stuff from clothing to gift stuff to furniture... it's free!
Collect up a bunch of items and have a scavenger hunt where they have to find the items you got, and hid all over the place, or you can hide cards from a deck from the dollar store and each card can correspond with a wrapped prize (wrapped with flyers and newspapers) you got for free. Hide them in your yard or house, or at the park. The wiener roast is pretty cheap... with a home made cake or cup cakes. They sell food at the dollar store. Have fun.
I am looking for party ideas for a boy turning 14.

It would helpful to know if he's into sports (does he have a favorite one?) or likes video games or is an avid book reader or likes music, plays an instrument? Then it would be easier to plan something around that;with food ideas, games, decorations. Indoor or outdoor, number of guests.
It's my 15th birthday party on the 7th of December this year and I can't think of ideas. I have a lot of friends and I love music and sports e.g. basketball, football. I have a budget of under 100 pounds! Can any one help!
Oh also I'm a boy!
We hired a dj, rented the local community center, and a snow cone machine, chocolate fountain, had a big cake, invite girls and boys and danced like crazy! They looovvvved it!
