I need ideas for a sixteen year old birthday party. Not themes, but actual ideas as to what these young people can do without spending a fortune. Please help.

My gang loves a game we call "hill billy horseshoes". You simply pound two metal pieces of pipe into the ground (like for regular horseshoes) about 30 feet apart. Take a piece of PVC pipe, maybe 2-2 1/2 inches in diameter, place over the pipe in the ground. The PVC pipe should be about 4 feet long. On the top of each piece of PVC, place a glass bottle (like a glass root beer bottle). You'll need one Frisbee.
We usually play teams, but you can play 2 people, up to maybe six at a time (3 per team). The teams take turns tossing a Frisbee to try to hit the other team's pole or bottle, to knock the bottle off. If it hits the ground, it's 3 points to the throwing team. If someone on the other (catching) team catches it with two hands, it's one point for them; if they catch it with "one" hand, it's three points. First team to 21 wins. The thrower must stand behind the pole, not in front it it. We've had a lot of fun playing this. Good luck. (06/26/2009)
How about a game party. I'm not sure, but some of the video stores might rent out game systems as well as the games. You could rent some and ask the guests if they have the same system and see if they can bring some of there games to share. Have popcorn, drinks, hot dogs, frozen pizza, and stuff like that. Our library rents games for free the only drawback is you can only rent 2. This would be good for a boy, for a girl you could do a scrap-booking party. You may have to put a little bit out for some supplies. (06/26/2009)
How about a makeup and spa kit at home treatment? Go to the Dollar store get some sponges, get a couple of tubs you can put your feet in at Walmart (put hot water in it), get the soap at the Dollar store. Get makeup kits at the Dollar store, have a "make up kit day", get music for relaxation, and have them come over prepared to be pampered. Tell them to bring their favorite song they like to relax to.
Also, bring their mothers over so they can join you. That way it'll be a mother/daughter party what a wonderful memory this would bring. Good luck. Here's a song to get the party going, Cindy Lauper "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." (06/26/2009)
