I need some frugal birthday ideas for my twins that are turning 16. A young man and a young woman. Please help!

When my daughter turned 16, we had a hair. One of her cousins is in beauty school & came to help. The girls came with clean hair & their brush or comb, then they did each others hair. That was all they did. We gave them stuff from the dollar store-make up bag, hair towel, etc. WE provided pins, new combs, curling irons, etc. for them to use at the party.

Just after that, one of her friends had a party at the park. They did silly games and had hot dogs & such, then the cake. They had boys & girls, just kind of a hang-out thing.

Another idea is to have a pizza party. You make the dough & the kids load it up. The boys can roll out the dough (Muscle contest). Then swim or group dance or something simple.

What a great Idea! Our Church would let us use the kitchen and we could have a "cook off" Girls vs Boys...good healthy "inexpensive" fun. Maybe we can make our own cake too!
