  • When I was 13 I would have been happy with inviting a bunch of friends over to watch a movie and spend the night. Maybe rent a new movie that they all like and make a yummy dinner and just let them hang out.

  • I agree with the first poster. Just invite a bunch of friends over and watch movies. Maybe even a sleep over. Even at 16 I loved sleepovers with my friends.

  • sleep overs were the best!! Just bust out all the games, movies and snacks you got...!! It will be a lot of fun :)

  • I agree with all the other moms, sleep overs are great. You don't even really have to do anything out of the ordinary just tell her she can invite some friends over for a sleep over and believe me they will find something to keep themselves busy. lol

  • I would also add that if you are too faint-hearted for a sleep over, you can do the same thing in an afternoon/evening party. If you have the stuff on hand, you could also let them give each other pedicures or makeovers.

  • Got to agree with the other moms. Sleepover, movie, pizza, makeovers, etc.
