My daughter turning 12 in March. She want a BBQ party. What sort of thing, in the way of party games, can I plan? I need help. Please.
A scavenger hunt around a neighbouring park or your neighbourhood or yard might be fun. A treasure hunt is good. You divide the guests into two or more teams, and they follow clues to more clues (about 4 is good), and then to the final treasure. I usually have a treasure (small treats or little games) for each team, and the first team to find their treasure gets the glory of winning!
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.
My daughter is having her 12th birthday in November. She's not girly, but she's not too tomboyey. She wants to have a sleepover, but we want some games for it. But she doesn't want the games to be scheduled. Please help us.
Our great granddaughter will be 12 in Dec. and her grandma is having a day "spa" party for her. Since your 12 year old isn't girly, how about a craft party? There are tons of craft ideas that are available on the internet. With Christmas coming so fast, they could make gifts for friends and family.
Another idea, have them make cookies/candy to take to a nursing home or V.A. hospital and sing a song or two, or recite a poem. They are old enough to do something for others while having fun. It will make them feel good also. Make cards of best wishes out of construction paper and pictures from seed catalogs/magazines etc. Teach them to be grateful now, while they are still young. In the next couple of years it will be to late for most.
My daughter is having a Muppets "wanted" theme party in May. We need some ideas for some games to play.
