12th Birthday Party Ideas

My daughter is turning 12 in September and we need cheap birthday ideas. She is having 4 friends over for a pamper/sleepover, but I would like to do an activity with them outside the house. Any suggestions? We have a bugdet of maybe $30-40, but I think she would also like to invite more friends to the out of house activity!

By "out of the house" do you mean movies or rollerskating, or do you just mean an outside activity. I always used to take my summer birthday parties to the pool, and I have taken a small group to the movies. If it is just outside, a trip to a park - perhaps even having the whole party there, might be nice. You could do a treasure hunt or a scavenger hunt, do activities that are available in the park - badminton, lawn bowling, soccer, etc. I am not sure if I am a big fan of having two groups of party-goers, unless she is inviting quite a large group for the main party, and a couple special friends for an extra sleepover. To invite some for the outing, but not for the main party seems ungracious to me.

Birthday cookout, picnic and/or campfire sounds like a fun idea and maybe have a large tent for sleepover if you want to stretch the time. Outdoor games and if no pool, then a water hose will do or water slide and water balloons sounds cool and refreshing on a hot day.


Also, a cooler of ice for lots of cold drinks and ice cream cones or watermelon and sitting in the shade enjoying fun with friends and party foods.
