Teen birthday coming up? Mykidstime parents contributed some great suggestions for 8 Totally Like Awesome Teen Party Ideas:
#1. Climbing Party
Head off to the nearest activity centre with a climbing wall and let your teen and their friends find their inner-monkey! Just be prepared for anyone without a head for heights to sit this one out.
#2. Pamper Party
“My daughter had a teen girls pamper party for her 13th, they all had make overs, nails done, facials and foot massages etc they loved it”, Deborah P
“One of my friends had a makeup artist come in and do their makeup, hair, nails and pedi. Girls got to take home their mini makeup and nail polish used on them. Girls loved it and had a blast!!” Vincie C
#3. Black Light Party
Hold a Black Light Party where you get all the guests to wear fluorescent clothes and you change your normal lightbulbs in the room to blacklight lightbulbs. Blacklight.com has lots of tips for organising one.
Rachelle S “We had one last yr. So fun”
#4. Geocaching Party
Most teens have GPS on their smartphones so send them off on a GPS treasure hunt. You can either hide your own caches and give them the coordinates to look for or use nearby geocaches for the hunt. Choose a final destination for the party goers to head to, e.g. cafe, picnic spot or home and give them the final coordinates to end up at.
#5. Photo Booth Party
Create a DIY Photo Booth with lots of fun props and have a photo booth party.
#6. Mexican Party
Go South of the Border with colourful streamers and decorations, sombreros, maracas, a rope and poles set up for some limbo dancing and of course some Mexican food and how about some mocktail Strawberry Margaritas?
#7. Treasure Hunt
Plan a Treasure Hunt for the teens to follow at your local Mall/Shopping Centre (good excuse for you to get some shopping done too!).
“I made a treasure hunt up for our nearest mall and at least 2 friends have borrowed it for their teen!” Wendy S
#8. Godfather Party
Order in or make some pizzas and have a Godfather Movie Fest. Get everyone to try their best Brando impersonation.
