The only “teen friendly” thing I can think of is a “Mall party” Have a
handful of friends meet at the best local mall and do food court pizza, a
scavenger hunt, maybe a movie etc. We have a mall that is huge and I’ve
seen teen parties doing this the kids seem to be having fun. You do need a
few more parents helping with this party just to supervise (especially if
you do a scavenger hunt – one needs to go with each group) But the kids get
a kick out of hangin’ at the mall, seeing friends and afterward you can take
a select handful of girls home for the slumber party part of it. Give all
the kids a disposo camera and let them have fun taking pictures of the fun,
the scavenger hunt, whatever. I don’t know that this would be much cheaper
than $100 at Embassy suites but you could accommodate more friends.
Something I’ve been planning on for DD’s 13th birthday for years now (she is
currently 10) will be a budget buster but worth it. I want to rent a
stretch limo for a few hours and have it pick her and a few friends up at
our house take them to a movie and dinner somewhere. We would go too, but
follow along in the good ole family car and let the kids have a ball in the
limo. DD doesn’t know this yet, I’m waiting to surprise her with it in 2
years. 😉 She is dying to ride in a limo, that is why I want to do it. 😉
Hope this helps.
