So it is your child’s 13th birthday party coming up. 13 is by far one of the best and most important of birthday party years. Now your little one is a teenager, with teenage ideas, teenage dreams and teenage expectations. Mom and dad are determined to put together the best ever party to celebrate their little special bundle of joy as they begin their teenage years. For sure we want this to be a special one since he is no longer a little kid but truly a young teenager now with a whole new set of likes and values.
When planning this special birthday party we want to be certain we are not incorporating little kid themes and activities into the festivities but we also want to be certain that we are not pushing a theme that may be a bit too mature for a young group of thirteen year olds.
Smash Hit Birthday Party Ideas for your 13 Year Old
Perhaps a happy medium would be a birthday party with a glow in the dark theme filled with lots of games and even live music to dance and sing to. Everyone loves music and teenage kids love to sing and dance so why not do all of this under strobe light balls hanging from the ceiling and black lights in the party room.
You can choose glow in the dark party accessories such as your plates, cups, napkins, tablecloths and even wall and table decorations that truly glow in the dark. Teenagers really love the whole glow in the dark thing with bracelets and necklaces and little glow sticks and are sure to enjoy a party completely themed on glow in the dark. Party stores will have all sorts of other creative additions to decorate your party room and a variety of prizes and games that will keep the interest of your teenagers as well.
Another fun teenage party idea is an adventure party outdoors. You can actually plan a camp party for the kids right in your own backyard under the stars. Start by building a nice camp fire and perhaps they can make their own Smores, a favorite among teenage kids and they can sing campfire songs, play music, tell scary stories and sleep outdoors on the ground in their tents and sleeping bags. This is sure to be a special party memory for your teenager and one that all the guests are sure to talk about for a long time.
Whatever party planning you do make certain to keep in mind that you are planning that special occasion for your TEENAGER now and want to be certain that everyone in attendance feels that special bit of “grown up” treatment with a party beyond their little kid years.
