Ideas on fun things to do for a 13-year-old girl's birthday party??
I just made a post about some drama concerning my daughter's upcoming 13th birthday party this Friday, but now I'm looking for some fun!
There will be 9 girls plus my daughter here and they will be coming home with her after school and then staying the night. My daughter wants to play Bigger and Better and then watch a movie, but I want to try and possibly plan some more things for them to do.
*Bigger and Better is where they split into two teams of 5 and I give them something small from the house, like a Sharpie or a deck of cards. Then each group starts on opposite sides of the street and they go house by house around the block to see if each neighbor can "outdo" the item the girls house. For instance, if I give them a Sharpie to start with then they will go to the next house and ask if they have anything Bigger and Better to trade. Say the neighbors give them a jar of peanut butter (unopened of course) and then the girls move on to the next house to see if those neighbors have anyting Bigger and Better than the peanut butter. After they all go around the block then they come back and see what team brought back the Biggest and Best item. We have lived at this house for 13 months and have had 4 different "teams" come to our house now, so it's pretty popular around here.*
I think that game will only take about 45 minutes to an hour though, so I was hoping that you fantastic ladies had some other ideas for a group of ten 13-year-old girls to do? My daughter had mentioned making tye dye shirts too, but again that will only take maybe an hour at most. I just want to keep them all engaged so they don't start breaking off into little groups, which I'm sure will be hard to do.
Let's hear your awesome ideas! :)
