10th Birthday Party Ideas

My oldest daughter is turning 10 in 3 weeks and she wants a big party. When I say big I mean lots of prep and trouble; but she only wants 3-7 friends. She has said no to bowling or rollerblading. I suggested spa party, but she said that is a bit boring and not very exciting. She says "yes" to a sleepover, but she wants more than the average sleepover.

She is a feminine type and so are her friends, but not too fussy. She is in a new school and has new friends so she wants to impress them with her party, but not to much trouble for me. Any ideas are welcome!

Do you have a mall nearby? One of my daughters favorite parties was a mall scavenger hunt. We broke up into teams, they had cameras and had to go through the mall searching for different items that they either (cheaply) purchased with money I provided (a certain flavor gumball from the candy store) or took a picture with (all of them crammed in the "rocket" in the kids rides). I had an adult with each group for safety and verification. Each team had a different list that I went to the mall and made up the week before. About 7 items each, but you could share tasks, but in a different order on the list. You could then go back to your house for pizza and cake and the sleepover with a movie.

Tweens love to try "grown-up" pampering. Working with foster homes I've had to be inventive with a small budget. If you have a hairdresser or nail school nearby you can ask for a student to come pamper the girls with hair chalk or manicures/pedicures. They need hours to pass their course so you usually can find one or two to give you a hand. The girls sleeping over feel like little princesses. You can give the students a small tip or ask them to join the food. With one 10 year old I was working with, she wanted to be a belly dancer. I contacted a school that educates students to become teachers. They sent 2 dancers that brought along some costumes. It was fun even for the adults.
