Party planning for teens is no easy task. They need your help to plan and execute the big event, they also want their birthday parties to feel special. Affordable parties may feature visits to a pizza parlor, arcade, skating rink, swimming pool or movie theater.
More elaborate locales include:
- laser tag;
- amusement parks;
- county fairs;
- water parks;
- spas or hotels.
Parties at home may center around a game or activity, such as having a barbecue in the backyard. Entertainment may consist of:
- reading tarot cards;
- painting henna tattoos;
- doing fortune-telling or watching a movie projected onto a big screen or a sheet hanging in the yard.
Most 14-year-olds want a party that feels different from a child’s birthday party. Bring on special effects, such as a black light, disco ball or fog machine. You can rent a karaoke machine for a sing-off, or hang up macabre decorations for a spooky party!
Most teens want a longer event than the traditional two-hour child’s birthday party. You can keep the energy and good spirits flowing by staggering different snacks over a few hours and closing the event with a movie or some kind of entertainment.
