I'm turning 14 on May 13th and I have no idea what I want to do for my birthday. I wanna invite my whole group of friends which is 12 people. Then I'm gonna invite my boyfriend and three of his friends who I'm also friends with. I don't know what to do because I wanna have it outside, but I also want to have it inside and I don't wanna just stand and talk to people. So if you have any ideas or games for us to do, I'm open to all suggestions. I just don't want it to be over $200.
Cheap way to stay under $200 is to have it at your own house or a near by park. Do you have corn hole (bags) or know anyone you can borrow it from. That's a great fun outdoor game. Latter ball is also a great outdoor game. Can have a huge water balloon fight. Can play music & sing with your friends. Order pizza, play a board game or a card game like Uno which many people can play at once.
I am turning 14 on the 28th of August. I want to have a small party consisting of boys and girls (I am a girl btw), but I want it to be super fun yet inexpensive. I am a tomboy, but I love SFX makeup and normal makeup.
Do a do it yourself SFX zombie makeup party and do a zombie versus humans run in a park :D Then do pizza or something.
Bowling and Go Kart sounds fun! I am sure everyone will have fun. Or, BBQ at the picnic, park or lake. Play outdoor sports.
Many fitness centers do parties. You could also get a newly certified trainer to come to your home and do a session with your guests.
Here's my idea...If you have a nice size yard maybe set it up for some games like badminton or horseshoes and some kickball...Or go somewhere that has a pool and maybe do a pool party. Set up a table of food and some music and chairs and if you don't have your own pool get a big blow up one and a slip and side or sprinkler and some water balloons and water guns and have a nice little water war.
Yes you should actually go to a gravity thing with like the jumping thing and also should go go-kart riding. It's very perfect, I actually went for my birthday in August too.
Maybe go roller skating/blading. I did it for my 14th and it's really fun. We hung out and we laughed so much because none of us could actually skate. It's a really great way spend your birthday.

My twin 13 year olds are having a skating party with a rock star theme. (09/13/2007)
First off, that age group is way off. No way would my son or daughter have a party with the ages of 13 to 18. You are just asking for trouble. Around here, the kids ages 13 to 14 are having "hang out" parties. These are co-ed parties. They are doing sports outside, bikes, trampoline, baseball, football, etc. and loud music outside. The ones that want to play, play and the others are hanging with their friends. Some dance to the music. The food is all outside. This kind of party makes for easy set up and clean up. The children are having a great time and all is well.
My daughter is turning 15 in a couple of weeks and she is having a co ed party too. We are also having a skating party at the rink. Supervised, food included and FUN (Plus, I don't have to clean the house!). (09/17/2007)
http://www.orientaltrading.com could give you some ideas for games & favors. Making your own pizza is always fun - get cheap frozen pizzas & add more toppings, or get already made pizza dough & sauce from a pizza place to do it yourself. (09/17/2007)
My birthday is in a few weeks and this is what I plan to do: I plan to go mattress surfing down my stair case with some of my closest friends and this is how it works. You have a partner go in your sleeping bag and whee! There you go. (09/21/2008)
