What are some ideas for my daughter, she wants to have a small group of girls together to do something big. What should they do. I suggested they go to the bowling alley but she said bigger than that. The girls are 13 years old. She is turning 13. I was hoping you guys would have any ideas. Please comment if you have any. Thanks soo much!

Even though it's very late for ideas, anyone who now has someone turning 13 this would be a great idea! Last year for her 12th birthday she had a mall scavengar hunt. She planned it all herself and came up with a really creative idea. You can have however many people you would like. Just split them into groups and we had an adult for each group. You can type up a list including things to buy or do. If you want to stay cheap (like we did or at least tried to) then do things like try samples of makeup, dance to music in a store and record it, take a picture in the photo booth or by it:), act like a model in front of a store window, get the chaperone something from starbucks, buy a little something for the birthday girl (having her stand outside not seeing what they buy), each girl get something matching (like jewlery), and many more great cheap ideas!We also told the groups to try and spend the least amount of money you can (give them a prize). The team done first each received a box of candy. Give the however much money for them to spend. They all had a blast and it was very fun!

I ask because my son has a big coed party every year. This year we are have a rolling game trailer. It is a reallY nice trailer that has all off the new and current game systems and the games to go with them. PS3,XBOX 360and the WII. He has 4 40+ inch flat screen tv's and cansit 16 players at on time. This maybe something that your kids might like. I also set up our living room with a candy buffet. The kids can eat from it while the party is taking place and will fill a bag before they leave.It was a HUGE hit!!!!!!!!!

So, I will be turning 13 on January 31st... My parents are divorced so I am having 2 parties. I want to do one of them on February 1st and the other on February 8. It is coming up just around the corner and I don't really know what I want to do. I want to invite 3-4 friends to each. I am thinking about going to a really fun roller skating place called the Wagon Wheel. They play really fun music, make it glow in the dark, and have pizza and movie theater food there. Then, I want to have a sleepover and do some stuff like face masks and stuff but one of the girls is a HUGE tomboy and doesn't like girly stuff... What should I do?! I'm running out of time!! I want it to be really special and I have no idea what to do!!! Help?!

as someone posted earlier that spa days are so 12 year oldish well actually not. My sister Megan still has spa day stuff with her friends and she will be 18 soon. So i guess it just really depends on your personality

I am turning 13 on the 26th and I am thinking like maybe having my closest friends over rent some scary movies, eat pizza, and have a slumber party in the basement. But i really don't know. It depends on your personality.

I have a 6 kids, including a 15 year old and 12 year old daughter who are very into parties. My 15 year old had a co-ed party, we went to laser tag and then came back to our house and listened to music, ate and watched a movie. I'm sure they did a few other things that teenagers do at parties LOL! But my niece who is 14 had a great party for her 13th. She went to a mall with a few friends and got a manicure & pedicure and had a scavenger hunt around the mall, and went back to the hotel, then out for dinner and saw a show that night, and spent the night at the hotel. All the girls loved it!

I did a Fear Factor party for my son's 13th birthday...not sure how that would work for girls, but somebody asked about boys. One stunt was standing barefoot in a bowl of raw eggs & sing a drawn song out of a hat with a banana as a mic...of course Happy Birthday was one of the songs..lol..they had an eating challenge of braunschweiger, artichoke hearts, & sardines ~ one of the kids loves sardines to this day...and they bobbed pig's noses out of spaghetti (timed of course)...1st & 2nd place won gift cards..definitely was a party none of them ever forgot..lol

We had a glow in the dark party for our daughter. She said it was great! Lots of glow necklaces, glow nail polish, and a funny dinner where the girls had to order some food (this is where little sis fits in) with crazy names and the food was a surprise. We played music and the girls really entertained themselves with the glow stuff.

I have 14 year old B/G twins. For their 13th birthday last year they each invited 15 kids (knowing that not everyone would be able to come). We had a big party out on our patio. We have a friend of a friend that plays in a punk rock band, they came and played for about 2 hours for the kids. I set up a nacho/ chili bar along with a full candy buffet with things I found at the dollar store. The party was a HUGE hit and a lot of the kids still talk about it. Before the party my kids were worried about the band. They were concerned because they were older guys their parents ages (lol) and they couldn't possibly be cool, boy were they surprised! I highly recommend a party at home! Your daughter couldn't fathom how awesome it could be with a lot of creativity on the part of a cool mom! The internet was my best friend ;) Best wishes to you!

I just turned 13 in december and my birthday partys tomorrow, what im doing is im having my closest friends and going on a carrige ride then dinner then hanging out at my place till 11 pm, a lot of teenaged girls would like this because its something you can move around and be jumpy with and talk all you want! 13 year old girls do NOT want a spa day, that is so 12 years old, when you do a spa day you cant move or talk as much as the 13 year old would like to. Sorry this is so long I just wanted to help :) ♥

Well, I believe a spa party may be of interest to 13 years old girl. Though your daughter is not consider a kid anymore, you may want to visit http://www.homemade-skincare-recipes.com... for ideas on how to go about organizing it. Get your daughter involve in the preparation, I am sure she is going to enjoy it.

You could rent a hotel room for you and the girls to stay in and have a big slumber party with movies, do facials, nails that sort of stuff.
