  • How about renting a movie? Karaoke? If she is into video games, you could hold a Wii or DDR tournament, or guitar hero. They could give each other makeovers or paint nails.

  • im not sure if you would like this. but at my 11th birthday party. we invited all my little girlfriends over. and we got a few cheap bucket from walmart like 1.88$ a piece. and we got tie dye sets and we got cheap white tees . if you only have 5 of her friends coming over you can make it a sleepover and you get tie dye kit

  • If its a real large group of girls, they can put a little play on for each other ,in groups. of 4 or 5. like a drama party, make-overs are fun for them too. And they did some art and crafts , they made a door knob sign to hang on their doors. so you might need to buy some art supplies , and she bought wooden letter of the first name of each girl , and they decorated it for their rooms. so you'll need more art supplies for that too .Don't forget to have snacks and drinks out for them and the cake,you might like to order in some pizza as well. or do up some hot dogs. or do boths. Thats what my daughter did, and they all left very happy from the party.And my daughter said she had a real good time.

  • know this sounds expensive, but in reality it is pretty cheap. Rent a hotel room for the night and invite friends to swim in the pool. We did this for our daughter's b-day and she had a blast. We stayed at the Homewood Suites. Only a select few were invited to spend the night (we were in the room as well) and the next day, she invited several for a few hours in the pool. If you watch, you can get a suite for around $100. The hotel also comes with breakfast!

  • Do you have a clubhouse/community building in your neighborhood or community that you could rent? Find a friend of hers or a college kid to DJ and have a dance party - a few bag of chips, some soft drinks, voila.
