Ideas Daughter's 12th Birthday

My daughter is celebrating her 12th birthday in July. We are all not sure what we would want to do. On previous birthdays we had parties. Now we would want to do something different. Please help.

Just do cake and ice cream and a few gifts with your immediate family. I have never in my 72 years done anything special for any family member's birthdays. It was always an occasion for immediate family, mainly parent and siblings. Sometimes, depending on the day of the week aunts and uncles and grandparents would show up, but not too often.

I just heard the other day of a child that wanted no gifts other than have her guests bring something for the homeless shelter or some other organization that is dependent on donations. The local animal shelter always needs things as the shelter for battered women and the food bank. Just an idea. Then just have the cake and ice cream and play some games or go to the pool to cool off.

Are you saying you don't want a party? I use to really enjoy planning my girls' birthday parties when they were younger. Think outside the box... in July? Have a Halloween Party! or one of my girls favourites... "Backwards Party". The invites are printed backwards. They have to wear their clothes backwards. Walk into the house backwards... name tags (name spelt backwards)....games (toss games or go fish has to be done with them facing backwards and trying to do it over their shoulder).

I had their loot bags with their names on them backwards (brown paper lunch bags decorated) Instead of eating say - hotdogs first; have the birthday cake first, then the hotdogs! Everything is done backwards! And don't forget the birthday gal or boy's name on the cake is spelled backwards too. So easy, inexpensive too!

Something fun that i have done for my daughter instead of an average party is cooking. i buy miniature flattened bread some tomato sauce and many different pizza toppings and let each kid make there own pizza. then i bake it in the oven. they really enjoy and its fun to make. it's also great so they can choose the toppings on there pizza instead of getting two large pizza's and some kids not being able to eat it. Another idea i like is having water balloon games. a great example is having kids partner up and toss the water balloon back and forth till someone drops it. Another idea for water balloons is to get two buckets of water and put balloons in one of them. then have the kids line up in groups and one by one. then have them run across as fast as they can trying not to drop or pop the wet balloons and whichever team finishes first and has the most balloons in their bucket wins. its really fun and something everyone can do.
