11 year olds would prefer lots of chit chatting and very few structures activities. So, plan fewer games and more of a tea time where the girls and sit down, have some snacks and tea, and gossip till they want. For 11 year olds, a hit and smash piñata is an awesome activity. Also, have some dance sessions, makeup sessions, tattoo making, cupcake decoration, tote bag designing, etc.

Try a camping or Carnivale party. Or a Top 11 birthday where the birthday girl/boy
get to choose their favorite 11 things to do and eat.

Have you ever seen a plant move and you Tickle It?
See the TickleMe Plant in action. Best bet is the TickleMe Plant Party Favors

http://www.ticklemeplant.com The packaging is not gender based like many other products and nature rules!

i just had my daughters and her friends and her loved the theme murder mystery dinner party. if their more like a ruff dirty kinda gal they might like the ideas of laser tag or paintball.

The best way to keep your guests busy is to plan some fun activities and games but they must be relevant to your party theme. However, there are some conventional party games that kids love playing and could be easily twisted to match the theme of your celebrations. Some of them are pin the tail on the donkey, a hit and smash piñata, pass the hot potato, etc. For girls above 11, you may have a dress up activity, a face painting, tattoo, hairdo, cupcake decoration, and many other age-specific crafts.

Well every one could go there and maybe do like karaoke and beading and some chips and pop and if in the summer you can have a fire in ur back yard or at the river and then you can buy face masks and get some movies and they can just "chill"

My daughter 11th birthday is november 20th and this is her first slumber party ever. She is gettin a mindless behavior cake and we will have pizza, hot dogs, popcorn, juice, favors. They will play the wii, have a dance contest(they all will be winners), paint their nails and toenails, i will tell 1 scarey story under blankets and flashlights and make candy apples, and let the girls have the rest of the night to theirselves. It will be her and 9 other girls. Her brother will stay at his cousins so he wont be a bother to her. I hope this helps you and happy birthday to your daughter. Dont forget the take home favors.

Another fun idea is the TickleMe Plant Party Favor. In it you can grow a pet like plant that moves and closes its leaves when you Tickled It.



Just search pet TickleMe Plant. This is real!

me and my family love this donut eating game

its when you tie a piece of string to to walls put donuts on the string

and who ever can eat the most donuts wins

also even though our kids are growing up they still like playing tip and hide and seek

HAVE FUN

YOU SHOUD HAVE AN AMERICAN GIRL AND MAKE AN AMERICAN GIRL PARTY ITS ONE OF THE BESTA THINGS IT HAPPEND TO MI WHEN I WAS 10 OR 11 OSOME

[deleted account]

a sleep over party with movies, board games, stuffed animals is really fun. you could have a fashion show with accessories. you could also make crafts! truth or dare is fun, as long as its appropriate. there is spin the bottle truth or dare, in which the kids write dares, put them in a bottle, spin it, and whoever it lands on chooses a dare! like i said, make sure its appropriate, not something gross either like kiss the wall 10 times. if the kids in your town wear makeup, you could have a make up kit. karaoke too! they could play games outside like tag or something, or even take them bowling! sleepover parties are super fun!

i am turning 11 soon and what i would really like to do is have a scavenjer hunt at the mall it is not very expensive and you can have a lot of fun running aroud the mall looking for strange imems. another thing to consider is would you let them be by them selves? i hope this helped.

I really liked this idea and it captures those funny moments, its basically Hot Potato with a camera that has the timer set to 15 seconds, all girls sit in a circle and pose then pass the camera, once the timer goes off that person is out!

I suggest that you have a sleepover party invite up to 7 to 15 friends it depends on how big your house is. Ask them for their RSVP first you should play some of your childs games but they must pe appopiate. Rermber play about 2 games then give the children an option of snacks after they play more games. Next they could go to the park with an adult for supervision. I had te kids there for about an hour after they could go bowling and a arcade. Next take them to a restraunt like M'cDonalds or KFC even Harvester. If you have never been to theese restaraunts why don't you macke something for them? After they can play outside for a bit. Later they can watch a movie make sure that you have three or four appropiate movies to watch. Also you shold leave snacks like crisps,buiscits or sweets and beverages like ple juice and water in the room their sleeping in put it on a table so it doesn't spill on your floor. Leave the door slightly open so they can get to the toilet. In the morning make an English breakfast for them or leave some breakfast suplies out on the table. for an example: Orange juice , bread,butter and jam. Your 10 year old should know where everything is if they need anything your 10 year old should do it. (ONLY IF YOU ARE AWAY)

My little one will be 11 in April and her older sister will b 16 a few days after.

They are at the age they want separate parties. I'm working with a small budget and wanted to get a head start. I'm thinking like a make over/ runway birthday for my 11 year old.. My oldest I want to give her a very special sweet 16 party. I keep dropping hints to her about her favorite colors and things like that. She's definitely into frilly dresses or anything like that so I need some awesome ideas for her party. Any suggestions?

My daughter also turns 11 this weekend... and bowling party for us as well! :D Although getting to the bowling idea was quite difficult. We searched for months filtering different 11 year old birthday party ideas for girls... from spa to hawaiian luau to skating etc. My older daughter is turning 13 in April and her first party with boys. She had decided to do a 70's disco party. Everyone will dress up in 70's attire and we will mix in 70's music along with today's current hits, for an activity my daughter wants to make disco balls for everyone to take home. Then after the boys go home the girls are all sleeping over. We have Abba Sing Star and will be watching Staying Alive. :D Good Luck and remember to just have fun!

I was just going to ask kinda the same thing about 11 year old birthday party ideas for girls. Glory and Sandy gave me a couple of good ideas. my daughter's party is this weekend n I still wasn't sure what they were going to actually do...but like Sandy said "just let them hang out" ... with a few ideas of course is good. I got the main idea from my sisters...which is to have it at a hotel. Though they can't swim cause the place doesn't have an indoor pool. they can do the dancing/karaoke thing, let the do each others nails hair n make up, buy some pizza, watch movies n eat popcorn, n of course CAKE!! I think they will have a great time! U should do it too...^_^//





sorry...forgot to add. my daughter will be turning 11.

and I am in ♥ with priceline.com I got a $85 (per night not including taxes etc) 4 star hotel for that night for $57 incl. taxes n everything.

My 11 year old's birthday party is for both Girls and Boys, we did the spa party last year because we only invited girls. We were thinking of a mystery party, Clue has a new "Murder Mystery" series of games we were thinking of picking up. Not sure what other things to add to the theme though.

For my younger daughter, we did a Karaoke party one year. It was a hit! I bought poster board and cut them into mini signs and put out a bunch of markers. That way, the kids who aren't comfortable doing karaoke can make signs for the singers (for instance, "You're the next American Idol!). That kept them occupied for a while. I also made them all cds with all of the current popular songs and let them decorate the cd cases as an activity.



For my 11 year old girl's birthday party, I took her and 3-4 friends to the mall, gave them each a little cash and let them walk around by themselves (in a specified area and they weren't allowed to separate). They thought this was great and I was at the mall, just not following them around. We got our nails done, went to a movie and then went home for a sleepover. If you don't want to pay for the movie and nails, you could do make-overs at the house and do mani/pedi's for the girls. Are there going to be boys there? That part confused me a little...



I've found that girls this age mostly want to shop and just hang out, as opposed to having everything planned. Hope this helps with 11 year old birthday party ideas for girls!
