My 12th birthday party is this Saturday. I choose to do real go kart racing with helmets and suits, as I am not really a girly girl. My friends got really excited when I said that we were doing real go kart racing.
If you are not having more of a tomboy party, you could go get French manicures. You could go back to the house and have a pizza and watch a movie before the other girls all go home. Then you're having more of get together than a party because, at 12 years of age, you won't have a party Think of it more as a get together.
My daughter is having a birthday party, but she doesn't want the girly-girl type because her friends that are boys are going to be there. And we need an inexpensive party place.

I suggest a dance party. You could rent a local hall for 4 hours. You can bring a radio or an ipod with a dock. At party city they sell a bubble machine for about $35 and strobe lights for $20! Also you can get props at the dollar store or party city! good luck and I hope my ideas helped-
I have a sister who is 12 years old and she can't decide what to do for her party. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of where to go?

Ever since my daughter was little, we have done themed parties. They honestly are not as hard as one might think, and you can tie all your food and games into the theme as well. Some of the themes we used were a Luau, 70's party, Beach party, Camping party, and this year for my daughters 12th birthday we are having a Fiesta themed party. For the Camping theme we set up tents in the back yard, had a fire pit to roast hot dogs and marshmallows, had a scavenger hunt, potato sack races, egg on a spoon relay race, and flash light tag when it got dark. Just an example of what we did, but there are definitely more things you could do with this theme. Also we listen to scary camp stories around the campfire. We found recorded stories online, and the girls loved it. Hope this gives you some ideas.
My daughter is going to be 12 soon and she wants to have some sort if party with a few friends. I don't have no clue at all. She said she doesn't want anything like bowling and she doesn't want anything too babyish. Can you please, please give me some ideas? Thank you.
Have a make up party. Have the guests bring some old dress up clothes, what ever they want, put them in a pile on the bed. Then buy some cheap make up, eye shadow, liner, nail polish, etc. Do their hair. After they are all made up they can pick out some clothes to wear. You could have the girls bring old make up from home to have a larger assortment. I saw this some where. It sounds like something a 12 year old would like to try. Might be messy, but fun. Take a party picture to remember her birthday.
I need a birthday idea asap, but one that is cheap and not in the house because it's not that big. If there are bday ideas for a small house, I really want to know. Thanx.
I have lots of ideas.
1) You could do a dance party- at party city they have a fog machine for $35 and strobe lights for $20. They could listen to music from and i pod from a dock or rent a dj.
2) You could do a spa party if the party is for a girl. The girls could do each others nails and get facials. In addition, they could dip their feet in rose petals and orbeez. Finally the can straighten or curl each others hair.
3) minute to win it-they could do cute little 1 minute contests
GOOD LUCK!-hope my ideas helped
My daughter just turned 12, but we aren't having a party for a few days or weeks. We need ideas asap. Thanks.

My child is celebrating her birthday next week. We already decided that we will not have the party at home. She wants her party a place we can decorate. She also wants a Mindless Behavior Theme.
Hi there I was looking at mindless behavoir the other day and I really think your daughter is too young to be listening to them, but it's up to you what your daughter listens to. Anyway why not have it in and old closed down building/or lawer room just get permisson first then you can decorate how you want. Hope that helps bye.
What kind of party would a 12 year old like?
I think you should ask her.
Many little gals like a girlfriends sleepover - the more the merrier. They might just watch movies and play board games and eat pizza and cake. Others might like to do each other's hair and have a spa evening - facials &/or do manicures. You need to bounce some ideas around with the birthday girl.
My niece wants to have a last minute birthday party, (in August or September), but is concerned about the money, and wants to have something that she can afford with her allowance which is $20.00 a week. She is willing to save up as much as she can for this. Have any ideas?
By Tina C.
Well, without knowing what she likes to do or how many people she is planning to invite, here are some ideas:
Chef Party: Have the kids make their own pizza, decorate their own cupcakes, or design their own sundaes.
I know that Dance, Dance Revolution is popular (if she has a Wii), as is Karaoke. You can buy inexpensive Karaoke CDs.
Check out http://www.tipjunkie.com/tween-teenager-party
and http://meandmyinsanity.com/2011/06/ ... ect-10-preteen-spa-day-birthday.html
for some great ideas.
This woman threw an American Idol' slumber birthday party for her 11-year old for $66.00 : http://beingfrugal.net/frugal-tween-birthday-party/
For a spa birthday party or for party favors, know that Dollar Tree has lots of cute lotions, spa stuff (gloves, manicure and pedicure sets,nail polishes, etc.) for a dollar each.
Good luck! :)
I am looking for fun things to do for a 12 year olds party.
My granddaughter had a Hollywood mystery party for her 10th birthday my daughter in law bought dresses at the thrift store and they got all fancied up. adults joined in the fun. My son even had a tux from thrift store this took some time and searching. The cake was decorated like the Hollywood hills sign and each kid had a script. They loved it.
My daughter is having her 12th birthday in a couple of weeks. We're struggling for party ideas with a cheap, but cheerful price. Any suggestions?

For my 12 birthday, me and my friends rented segways and went to a park to ride them. It was soo fun :)
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.

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.
My daughter is having her 12th birthday party! She doesn't know what to do. We want to do something very fun and creative! Any ideas?
By Katie from LA, CA
How about a minute to win it party like the tv show. You can make up your own games. I want to have one for myself! Good luck whatever you choose!
My daughter, who is 12 years old, is choosing to have only 3 friends stay for her birthday party sleepover. She and her three friends are major girly girls. She has gotten a few game ideas, but is wanting a few more.
Mani and pedis, crafts like making hair ornaments or beaded jewelry, make your wolw pizza for food and an engaging activity. 12 year olds usually have a pretty good idea of what they do and do not want-ask her what she enjoyed at other kid's parties, and what she would do differently from other parties
I have a 12 year old sister. She does not know what to have for her birthday, but she loves Big Time Rush and One Direction. What should I do? Hope you can help me soon as possible!
By Ava B.
I'm a directioner, so I have an idea of what you should do - One Direction and Big Time Rush theme it. But dont go overboard. That's just an idea.
My younger sister is turning 12. She doesn't know what to do for her birthday. Last year she didn't do much because she couldn't decide, so this year I really want some ideas. Please help. Thank you.
My daughter wanted to take a couple of her friends to a local pizza/arcade place. Kind of like a Chucky Cheese. If this is something your sister may like and there is a Chucky Cheese is your area, you can go to the CC site and sign her up on their birthday list with your email. You will get an email with offers (coupons) to make a good time there affordable.
I need ideas for a 12 year old birthday party. It is in February. She wants it to have Hello Kitty party supplies and to have it be a weekend event. She also wants it to start off with a hotel night stay, a girls night out. Please help.
I'm sorry, but for a girl's twelfth birthday, this is all really too much. She is not in any way old enough for the kind of event that she thinks she wants. Three or four of her friends over to spend the night, with pizza, movies, and plenty of snacks should be just fine. Offer to have a "spa" night with facials and manicures to make it seem more "grown-up" but, please, in no way allow her the type of party you have described in your question.
My sister's birthday is next month and we can't decide on a theme for her party. The party must be inexpensive and easy to set up. Help please!
By Cindy J.
Go to the craft section at Walmart or the craft store. There you can find great inexpensive craft ideas for her. T-shirts for $3-5 and tye-dye machine for $10 or friendship bracelet kits for $10-20 would make for a great time. There are plenty of foam stickers to decorate hats or notebooks and beaded jewelry parts galore. Good luck.
What can a 12 year old do for her birthday?
Well, what do you like to do?
Something you like to do, but elaborate!
My daughter is a huge Directioner and she is inviting 5 of her friends, but we don't know how to do this. So help is needed very badly. So help please. Thank you so much.
Editor's Note: A "Directioner" is a fan of the boy band One Direction
My go to tween birthday place is the craft aisle at Walmart. They have t-shirts, bags, and hats to decorate and bracelet making kits. I'm sure you could work 1D in somehow. Also, you could order cheap clear phone cases or key chains and let them decorate them with pics, decorative paper, and stones/glitter (craft store). Saw that on HeyKayli on YouTube.
My daughter is going to be 12 in 3 weeks and 4 days. She wants to invite friends to a place to have fun and hang out with family and friends besides Planet Party. Please help me and make sure it's not expensive. Where do I go?

Are you a member to the YMCA? They sometimes have a party room. I would look for inexpensive places to rent or a free opportunity like the YMCA (if you are already paying for membership). Most party places are going to cost a lot. Community centers often have rooms you can rent hourly.
What is a good birthday idea for a girl turning 12? We need to know soon, because it needs to be planned out very soon. Thank you very much.
My younger sister is having her 12th birthday party. She wants something not too babyish and she only wants a few friends over. She wants a really fun theme. Please help I want this to be a birthday she will never forget.

I have an almost 12 year old daughter and she seems to want to do more expensive stuff. What should I do?
My kids have a budget for their birthday parties. They purchase the cake, snacks, favors, and pay for the activities. This really helps keep the parties reasonable, especially since they get to keep any money that's left over. I think this teaches an important lesson in budgeting (for example, they've learned that they can choose a more expensive activity if they invite fewer friends and have a homemade cake instead of a store bought one, and if they have the party at 2:00 they can save money by not buying pizzas, etc.).
When my daughter turned twelve she invited two friends to have manicures and pedicures done at the beauty school in town. This year for her 13th, she decided to skip the party entirely and put the money toward the phone we got her for her birthday.
What can I do on my child's birthday? I have no idea.
I had a carnival party for my granddaughter. We were able to rent the all purpose room at our fire hall for 30.00. We set up several booths (tables with red tablecloths) that were manned by aunts, uncles, friends, etc.
One booth had a popcorn popper and bags of popcorn (get red and white bags at the dollar store).
There was a hot dog "stand" (if you don't have a hot dog cooker you can fill a thermos jug with boiling water and drop the hotdogs into it or put a little water into your crockpot and steam them).
A cotton candy "stand" [get cotton candy at the dollar store).
An ice cream cone stand (I bought drumsticks), a lemonade stand (bottled water with lemonade Mio).
A pretzel stand (I bought the big hard pretzels and had a bowl of mustard, a bowl of melted chocolate. A bowl of thin icing, a bowl of nacho cheese for dipping}.
A snowcone stand you can get a rival snowcone maker for under 20.00 and the syrups are very inexpensive, we just put them in solo cups with plastic spoons} instead of a cake we had a cupcake tower with homemade cupcakes and lot's of sprinkles!
We had a ton of balloons and a boom box playing. On one big table we had poster board guitars cut out and bowls filled with markers, stickers, stick on jewels, etc. They all made paper guitars and had an air guitar band and sang karaoke and danced.
Both boy and girls loved walking up to the tables and ordering their food. They had a ball.
The goody bag had 1.00 sunglasses, glow bracelets, rings and necklaces. crazy neckerchiefs and tattoos.
I bought darn near everything at the dollar store and the kids still talk about this party 2 years later!
I'm trying to plan a bday party, but my daughter's in high school so she doesn't want it too babyish. Any ideas on activities for this year? She doesn't want a themed party. Also doesn't want games like scavenger hunt.
We are thinking of spa or makeover. There are around 13 girls.
Also we need to keep it cheap; any out of the usual ideas? I need help ASAP. Please and thanks.
My daughter wants a sleepover party, but we can only fit 2-3 people. We are also thinking of a modern camping theme e.g. no tents, no open fire, just electronic and new things. Please help party in a month!

My daughter is having her 12th birthday party and she's having about 25 girls over, but she doesn't know what to do. She wants to go somewhere fun and cheap. I would love if you could give some ideas. We live in Portland, examples: JJ Jump Oaks park sky high.
I really need help. I am trying to plan my 12th birthday, but I am clueless! I want to invite my friends who are older then me and I want it to be fun for everyone. If anyone has any ideas please tell me because I am really clueless and my birthday is in august!
If you have a low-cost Pizza place like "Eats-A-Pizza" plan it there. It only costs $3 a person and you can ask everyone to bring their own money for it, if they can.
Or you can have a "pizza making" party. Where you all make the pizza's yourselves at home and rent a movie with lots of popcorn & pop.
Hope it's a great day for ya'll. (07/26/2005)
The other one is a black light themed party, wear everything that glows in the blacklight, get glow necklaces and stuff too. I hope it works out for you! Have a great 12th! piper (06/29/2006)
