We’re planning a birthday party for our 13 year old girl and really don’t want to have a slumber party or a party at home. Probably 4 or 5 guests. We live in Western Melbourne.

  • We pitched a tent in the backyard, set up a tv and DVD player plus a stereo. 8 girls came for the weekend. They had a piƱata, watched movies, told ghost stories round the bonfire, danced and sang to music, did some cooking, went for walks. It wasn’t a bad weekend

  • A ten pin bowling party might be good. A lot of these bowling centres also offer laser tag and karaoke, which would be fun for young teens.

  • A dance party is a great idea.

  • Sounds like you had an awesome party fit for their age group! Glad it all turned out great!

  • Thanks everyone. We ended up having a dance party and it went really well. I hired a dance teacher to give a Hip Hop class and the birthday girl and her friends loved it. Party pies and sausage rolls after, so it didn’t cost all that much either.

  • Go to the cinema and maybe after to Maccas for dinner.
    It’s something that they all like even if you don’t.

  • If you don’t mind doing some work a picnic/bbq with some games. You could include an activity such as row/paddle boating (Yarra river somewhere does this?). High tea is also a nice idea someone else suggested.

  • A limo ride with bestie.
    A fancy dinner out with a friend.
    A surprise outing where she gets dressed up and you pick up her friend and take them mm for Hugh tea.

  • My daughter had a party at the local cinema, we seen a movie and each had popcorn and a drink (I snuck in a bag of lollies for each of them) Best party ever as I didn’t have to clean up and the girls had such a ball.

  • Gold Class is a great idea.

  • My daughter was invited to the 13th birthday party of a girlfriend. They were just 6 girls and the mother brought them to paintball! They had a wonderful time!

  • Trampoline park, localy we have a adventure fun park thats full of fun things water to do for kids that age, but if it cold where you are i would suggest a dance party, pamper party where you could get the kids to do pedicures, etc. or invite a few of her best friends and take them to a pizza and a movie or gold class with some nibblies. Or maybe timezone for a session of fun. This maybe suited if there will be both boys and girls invited to the party.

  • Is there anywhere that offers pamper parties near there?
