Do you arrange a huge party for them? Or do you have a modest sleepover with a few friends? Fortunately, we’ve compiled a list of entertaining & unique teen tween party ideas that your kids will adore!
Tween Party Ideas
Planning birthday celebrations for older children gets increasingly difficult. It can be difficult for pre-teens because they are still in the transitional stage between tween and teen. Tweens aren’t considered small children, but neither are they teenagers. The tween years are those between the ages of nine and twelve.
So, even though your soon-to-be 12-year-old is on the verge of becoming a teenager and there are plenty of fun teen birthday party ideas, they aren’t quite there yet. But that’s all right. Don’t rush through adolescent turmoil. It’ll be here before you know it, and there are plenty of thrilling teen birthday party ideas. This is where this list of tween birthday ideas comes in.
Party Theme Ideas
Ensure your big kid has an amazing birthday with these tween-approved party ideas, which range from intense scavenger hunts to a muddy mud race.
DIY Spa Party
Invite a small number of your child’s pals over to try out new makeup colors, paint nails, experiment with different hairstyles, and simply relax. If you have a hot tub, you may turn the celebration into a luxurious getaway.
Solicit bathing suits, robes, and slippers from guests. Consider getting manicures or shoulder massages from an esthetician.
Take all the kids to a local green space or your backyard for a fun and messy color fight if your tween’s birthday falls during the summer. Non-toxic colored powders are available online in a wide spectrum of vibrant hues. After everyone has been doused in colored powders, supply buckets of water and nerf guns and challenge the youngsters to a water war to clean up.
Remind children to wear light-colored, but old, clothing that may become stained. In addition, request that guests bring a change of clothes and a towel. Protect their eyes with Gove goggles or sunglasses.
A movie night is a low-cost party concept that fosters independence in children, especially if parents simply stay out of the way. Provide a variety of age-appropriate movies, popcorn, snacks, drinks, and plenty of comfortable couches and blankets for kids to choose from.
Make your own Willy Wonka-inspired candy shop in the kitchen for the kids to fill up on all the goodies they want before (and during) the show to make the party even more spectacular.
Tweens enjoy performing and singing, so borrow a karaoke machine or watch a cable karaoke TV station for a fun night out. Make sure you have multiple microphones to encourage singalongs.
To take shareable images, stock up on props like large sunglasses, wigs, mustaches, and signs. Make a cake, gumballs, downloadable Instagram icons, and other Instagram-worthy details come to life. Make sure you have plenty of current pop music available, too!
Photo booths are probably the most fun aspect of any birthday celebration. It’s always a wonderful experience cramming oneself into this small box to take photos with your closest friends.
Any party may be transformed into something spectacular by setting up a photo booth in your garden. Every guest will be delighted to take home a visual souvenir from your birthday celebration.
Birthday Cake Ideas
Although themed celebrations do not have to end as your child reaches the tween or teen years, it is normal for themes to become fewer and farther between in favor of a more general birthday party, which requires a more general cake that is still enjoyable and age-appropriate. Look no further for birthday cake inspiration for your tween or teen.
Age Number Cake
When making a birthday cake in the shape of a tween’s age, it’s easy for the cake to become very childlike. As a result, when creating these cakes, caution is required.
When it came to smaller children, a cake in the shape of their age was usually covered in a lot of piped icing and sometimes some colorful characters that they liked. That will obviously not suffice for tweens.
As a result, adding fresh flowers, candies, cookies, fruit, and other decorations will raise it to the point where it no longer feels like a cake for small children. Instead, it becomes a product that anyone would enjoy having at their birthday party, from tweens to youth.
Favorite Color Cake
Children do not lose their favorite color just because they are a year older and have entered the tween category. As a result, making a cake with beloved colors shown in innovative ways is a terrific dessert for a tween.
The secret to a favorite color cake is to ensure that there is a decent mix of décor on the cake that gives it unique elevations, which transforms the cake from a simple “Happy Birthday” cake to a masterpiece that tweens will enjoy.
The sweetly gorgeous party will be the cherry on top of your Tweens’ birthday cake. Personalize this sleek and adorable birthday party invitation to inform your tweens’ pals that a tween party is taking place.
