Tween Glamping Party

 

 

 

Weather won’t ruin this idea.  Visions of girls screaming at the sound of noises in the yard make this indoor idea sound much better.  Indoor bathrooms and bugless campouts make it even better.  Whether creating one huge tent with sheets, a real pop-up tent or individual tents make this party theme so much fun to put into motion.

 

What you need:

 

  •  A tent or tents…this doesn’t need to be expensive…borrow if you don’t want to make one 😉

  • A “fire” pit – create this with rolled brown towels to simulate logs add red, yellow and orange tissue paper with battery operated candles, mini lanterns or glow sticks for the fire.

  • Beach/camping chairs or bean bags

 

Tween Glamping Party Food

 

  • S’mores

  • Hot dogs

  • Make your own sundae bar

 

Tween Glamping Party Games

 

  • Flashlight tag

  • Truth or dare

  • Scavenger hunt

Tween Spa Party

This is one party theme that you can make super simple or really run with it.

 

Decide if you will do facials, manicures, pedicures, hairstyles or all of the above.

 

A spa party works best with a few adults to help out especially if you are offering different spa services.

 

We even have a local salon that offers this service on days they are normally closed.    The one my daughter attended had two ladies present, one did mani/pedis and the other did hair do’s.  They provided pizza, snacks and smoothies served in pineapple drink cups.

 

If doing it at home you will need:

 

For Pedicures and manicures:

Fun Extras

 

If you want to get fancy you can have robes for the girls to wear or microfiber towels…they can then be the take-home gifts.   Whether waffle style, kimono or plush and fluffy at least it’s more practical use wise than cheap toys that get lost or thrown away…since most of them are super annoying….hello whistles and gel toys that leak….?😒

Tween Spa Party Games

 

 

One of my favorite ideas is a photo booth set up…many kids at this age have cell phones but how about using an instant camera so that you can print out photos instantly.

Tween Spa Party Decor

 

  • Create a sign offering the “services”

  • Set up a booth for each service

  • Create a relaxing setting by adding some fun tween magazines to the coffee table and some mood music.

 

Tween Art Party

 

 

Girls night outings for painting are a thing to do around here but it could easily be a fun activity for your next tween girl party.

 

What you need:

 

  • Canvases

  •  Paint

  • Brushes

  • Aprons – these could be personalized with puffy fabric paint

  • Don’t want the mess, try oil pastels like one of these or …search for make your own art studios in your area and book a party!

 

Tween Art Party Food

 

  • Pretzel rods dipped in different color frosting make great paint brushes.

  • Palettes can be used to fill with candies, jello or fruits of varying colors.

  • Cupcakes can be frosted in different colors or left white and decorated with rainbow jimmies or m & m’s

 

Since the art creation would take up a good portion of the time…adding another game really isn’t necessary but pictures of the artists with their masterpieces would be a great idea.

 

Again photo booths are so much fun.

Tween Art Party Decor

 

Paint chips from the store can be had for free and make great supplies for making your own decorations.

 

Birthday parties for tweens don’t’ have to be expensive to be fun…I know Pinterest and Facebook make it seem that all the parties are over the top perfect but they really don’t have to be.  I hope one of these ideas can inspire you to create a party your tween will love.

      Karen, you are so right! When I was that age we didn’t have themes but every girl’s birthday meant a group sleepover and surely those memories of talking about boys and parents and all. the. things. still mean everything to me today. Thanks for commenting.
