12 Year Old Girls Birthday Party Ideas

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?

I love the idea about the $5 at the dollar store and then having a fashion show. We are going to use that with our daughter and her friends. Another idea - Our daughter loves halloween but was a summer baby. Her friends love the scavenger hunts my husband and myself come up with each year so this year we are replacing the lightbulbs with blacklights and having the scavinger hunt in the "glow in the dark." Then we take them roller skating from 7:30pm to 11:00pm to wear them down a bit before the slumber party. Last year was a late swimming session and everyone was asleep by 10 pm.

We held a water balloon party for my 12 year old Granddaughter. It was a huge hit with girls and boys alike. She invited her entire class and all but one came (just mention water balloons a kid will be there ;-)). You can buy water balloons cheaply at Walmart or purchase them online. We spread a giant superslide across the lawn to place all the water balloons on, we also purchased two small blow-up kid pools to store the balloons in (tip: don't stack them more than three balloons high or they will burst by themselves from the pressure). We attempted to play organized games with the balloons, but since these kids were middle school age, they had much more fun left on their own to have a huge water balloon fight (the only rule we had was no hitting in the face). The only thing I had to purchase was the water balloons, cake, ice cream, and streamers (I already had the blowup pools and superslide; if you don't have those call around and borrow them from friends/family). The cost of this type party is very inexpensive BUT there is a lot of planning and work involved. It is better to have all the water balloon filled before the party begins. My boyfriend and I started filling the water balloons two days before the party. Once you have filled the first hundred balloons you start to get faster at filling them, we ended up with 2300 water balloons for the party and 15 kids popped every one of them within an hour.

One last thing, I recommend having a little game in the end. Whichever kid picks up the most popped balloons from the grass gets $10 (otherwise your yard will be filled with little balloon pieces and it's not good for the birds to eat).

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 daughter's 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.

For my 12th birthday I invited all my friends to Chuck E Cheese as like a joke party. Then after that I had two friends spend the night and we did a spa themed sleepover where we did facials and painted nails and what not. It was a blast and fun for anyone who would like something like that. I highly recomend that.

Maybe you guys can go to a spa and get pampered. You don't have to go all out seeing that you are only 12. But you can get a manicure and a massage! All girls love that!

I was thinking and it sounded fun to have some friends sleepover at a local hotel in your town with the birthday girl for the night. Have pizza and cake and swim in the pool.

We just had the best bus party birthday party. 25 friends went to 3 different places, Laser Edge, CJ Barrymores, American Pizza, etc. Then 8 went to an overnight hotel waterpark. My daughter and her friends had so much fun and I enjoyed watching them have fun singing top songs from her iPod with an amazing sound system on the bus. I agree that they only turn 12 once so go all out.

Having a slumber party based on a disco would be kool as. You dont need disco balls just buy some cheap colourful lights. You can do heaps eg:Karaoke- Singstar, Scavenger Hunt, Makeovers- Nail Polish, Hair Syling, Sack Races, Disco Dance, Freeze, Apple Bob, Spotlight, Egg and Spoon, Movies. It will be heaps of fun

Just do a sleepover. Every girl has at least 3-5 close friends so invite them over for a sleepover. Go to a restaurant, rent a movie, and let them stay up as late as they want. In the morning let them seep in and text the parents their sleeping in come a little later. When they wake up make them pancakes and take them some where fun like Sky Zone or the beach (if a summer birthday)

Invite her friends. Pick the people who you want to sleep over. But don't tell the uninvited ones. Bring them to the mall, and out to eat. Let her have coffee if she's not allowed for fun. Get there nails done. There's so many ideas.
