Pink Skulls - Pirate Party Ideas For Girls

Pink Skulls - Pirate Party Ideas For Girls

By Jillian Gallo

Pirate party ideas for girls start with the Pink Skull supplies. Ahoy Buccaneers...Pink Skull pirate ideas for girls are pretty and pink and still have a skull and crossbones on them. This is a great kids birthday theme for the spring and summer months. Spring and summer seem to bring out the pirate in all of us. And these pretty, pink supplies are perfect for your daughter's birthday party.

Take a look and find some fun party decorations that have a skull and crossbones on them and if they are pink it's all the better. You can decorate your party room with a personalized banner...they are easy to make yourself or find one at your local party store. Set the table with accessories that have pirates on them. Pink party supplies are perfect to set your party table, along with pink foods that have pirate names. How about serving Jacquotte Delahaye Salad or Lady Killigrew Cookies. Name your party menu for lady pirates of the past. Serve Anne Bonny burgers with a pirate flag pick sticking out of the bun.

Give your guests Pirate Names too. I found a pirate name generator site on line. I put my name in here are the results. My real name is Jillian, the pirate name that was generated for me is Sinorita Shakia Word and the name of the pirate ship I sail the seas on is the Miss Raceli Ocean Lion. Silly? Yes! But it is also lots of fun. Give each girl a name tag with her pirate name and her ship written on it.

Party games are a huge part of any party and when the games match up with your theme it makes them more fun. Well, with pink pirates why not let a big Pink X Mark the Spot on that treasure chest hunt you plan. Find a pink shoe box or cover a box with pink wrapping paper. Decorate it with some pirate stickers and self adhesive jewels to make it look like a treasure is hidden inside. Fill the box with goodies and hide it. Draw a map and have clues lead the girls to more clues. Each clue can lead a girl to another spot...which she must fill in on the map, until the clues all lead to the treasure chest you have hidden. All the female pirates can share the booty they have discovered. You can find all sorts of pirate treasures to fill your chest with. There are all kinds of fun party favors and surprises like temporary pirate tattoos, faux pearl necklaces, pirate skull light up rings, glitter bracelets or glow jewelry, maybe even a pirate's bandana for each of the girls. Put lots of pirate treasures in that chest for your pink pirates!

Have a T-shirt Designing Contest. Let the girls use fabric paint pens, markers or puffy paint markers and have them each design their very own T-shirt. You can supply tracing tools and stencils so the girls have a cute design to follow. Designing T-shirts can be really fun and it's a unique party activity the girls will love. Maybe you can find a skull and crossbones stencil so your guests can make a pirate T-shirt to fit in with your party theme.

Girls love Manicures, Pedicures and a Pinata Game. There's a pinata that looks like a big bottle of nail polish. Get it and fill it with candies and goodies. Add a pull string conversion kit to make your pinata as safe as it can be. Let the girls take turns pulling the strings until the pinata bursts open and the booty hidden inside spills out. Now, after the pinata game, set up a nail polish station so everyone can get a polish.

As if that is not enough there are other fun party ideas for a girl's pirate fete and some of them are free! Add some pirate coloring pages you can print online for free, some pirate songs for a little Buccaneer Karaoke and some pirate candles for that cake or cupcake dessert you have planned. This summer give your girl a wild and fun birthday soiree...with a Pink Skull girl's pirate gala birthday party theme.

Find Pirate party ideas for girls and the Pink Skull party supplies to go with it. Find everything you need at Whether it is the pirate party favors or the crafts, the free printable pirate coloring pages or the cutest little pirate rubber duckies that you are looking for you can get them at Find other kids party ideas too. Fun party ideas for girls and boys and all the party supplies you need to plan and host your child's celebration!

Party Themes - Top 4 Girl Birthday Party Themes

Party Themes - Top 4 Girl Birthday Party Themes

By Chelsea Gillespie

Planning a child's birthday party is never easy. Children can be very particular in their tastes and wants. It can be a daunting task to have to find the exact theme your child wants at an affordable price. Throughout this article I will list several ideas for different girls birthday party themes.

1. Disney Princess- Most little girls have a favorite Disney princess. Whether it's Cinderella, Bell, Ariel, or the newest Disney princess; Princess Tiana, from Princess And The Frog. No matter the princess it is always a good option for a girl's birthday party. Most Disney products are well stocked and easy to find at any party store location. This makes it that much more appealing for your daughters upcoming birthday.

2. Barbie- Whether your little girl is mesmerized by the adventurous Barbie Princess movies or she just loves to play with Barbies; the Barbie party line is a great choice. Many places that sell Barbie birthday themes will have a wide variety to choose from. Much like Disney Princesses your daughter will have her favorite one, making it imperative that you find the right one. Searching online before going to a store is a sure way to know what the store will carry. Don't be afraid to call the store and ask if they have the specific item you need. This will help you avoid a trip back to their return counter and an upset little girl.

3. Stripes or Polka Dots- If the birthday girl is older than 12 you might have a harder time with themes. Sometimes it is safer to do a theme that is a little more general. Stripes and polka dot colors in very vibrant and fun colors can be just the trick to put a smile on their face. Lime green and pink or brown and pink are a very fun and young color pairing that most teenagers will love. It is easiest to shop with them and learn what their style is. Take them to the store with you and find out exactly what they want.

4. Twilight- Another popular teen theme right now is Twilight. Teen girls seem to crave the men of Twilight and would love a whole event themed around the vampires. The popularity of the party theme can cause the prices to be high. I would recommend you look online to compare prices with other places. This will assure that you are getting the best deal for your daughters birthday party.

I hope these ideas will help guide your party planning for that special birthday girl. Make sure you keep the party about her and be aware of what she prefers. With a little planning, shopping and love she will have the best party that she could have ever imagined.

For even more ideas and a look at a wide selection of party supplies visit Zurchers online party store, all of the merchandise is at a discounted rate.

The Birthday Party For Kids Check List

The Birthday Party For Kids Check List

By Werner Wichmann

Planning a birthday party for kids is not always as easy as it sounds. Although you may assume that a party intended for adults would be much harder, there are many things that must be considered when planning an event for children. Make sure you have everything covered using this handy check list. The first thing to remember is to leave enough time to ensure all planning is done and everything is in order. Start early so you can enjoy stress free birthday party planning.

Item 1: Scheduling

Have you decided on a date and time for the party? This obviously must be determined before invitations can be mailed out. However, it is also important you are sure you have chosen a time that works with your schedule. If you will need time off work to prepare or enjoy the party, request it before setting the date in stone. That way, if there are any problems that do not permit time off, you still have an opportunity to choose a different date before invitations go out.

Item 2: The Invitation

Many stores sell invitations specifically intended for a birthday party for kids. Whether you buy premade invitations or make your own is up to you. If you plan to design your own invitation, make sure all the vital details are included. These are the location of the party, time and date, as well as RSVP information. If there are any details party goers must know, such as bring a swim suit or have parents come with a dish to share, then make sure these are noted as well.

Item 3: Party Supplies

A birthday party for kids does not have to follow a set schedule. You can plan a dinner or lunch gathering, or something in between that doesn't include an actual meal. Which you choose will help determine what party supplies are needed. Make sure you have ample cups, plates and plastic silverware to go around and then some. Remember, children may accidentally spill or throw away some items so having extras is important.

Item 4: The Party Area

You most likely have a designated party area decided. This will be where most of the activity goes on and where the guests should remain for the duration of the party. Before the event, make sure these boundaries are understood by your child. If guests are not to go to the upstairs bedrooms, say so. This understanding is vital to ensuring a smoothly run event. Also try to block off any areas you do not want guests to go. For example, doors to off-limits rooms should be kept closed during the party.

Item 5: RSVPs

When planning a birthday party for kids, make sure you keep a written tally of the guests who have RSVPed. The closer to the big day it gets, the harder it will be come to keep track of who has contacted you and who has not. By keeping a record, you can easily monitor and know who you have yet to hear from. A headcount is important when purchasing refreshments, so keep the RSVP list easily accessible.

Tips to Barbie Birthday Party Planning

Tips to Barbie Birthday Party Planning

By Anna Shannen

Does your little girl absolutely love Barbie? Well then you should get her a special surprise for her birthday, a Barbie themed party for her birthday! If your daughter loves Barbie then she will definitely enjoy a Barbie birthday party.

When planning a Barbie themed birthday party for your little girl, then the first thing you need to get is party supplies. You need to get the supplies for the party way ahead of the party so you can be prepared. You can choose to buy the supplies from a store or make them yourself.

You need to get the invitations out at least a week or two before the party is set to happen so that you can make sure that everyone will come to enjoy the party. You can buy these ready printed and made, and all you need to do is fill in the details. You can also make your own out of card-stock paper and decorate it yourself.

Send the invitations through mail or even by hand if possible, so you can be sure that the recipients get their invitation. Ask them to RSVP so that you can have a rough estimate on how many people are going to the party.

The next thing you have to prepare is the party decorations. Choose colors that will remind everyone of Barbie. The best colors to choose are pink, light purple, and yellow. Choose your decorations according to the colors so that everything will be tied together. You can make centerpieces for the tables and set up balloons all around the area. The tables should also follow the color scheme and the chairs too.

Of course, no party would be complete without a birthday cake. There are different Barbie themed birthday cakes available in stores, so it shouldn't be too hard to find one that works for you. You can also make one at home using a dome shaped cake and a Barbie doll. The food should also be light and delicious so that everyone will enjoy eating it.

You can ask the people attending the party to bring their own Barbie dolls. The little girls will love to play with their dolls and dress them up during the party. It will provide them with a fun and interesting time with each other and with the Barbie dolls.

If you plan your child's Barbie birthday party early and well, she will have a great time at her party and will thank you for it for years to come.

Are you organizing a Barbie birthday party for your child's next birthday? If yes take a look at our fantastic range of Barbie party supplies. You will find everything you need to arrange a party fit for a Princess.

First Birthday Party Tips For Parents

By Justine C. Tajonera

Many parents give a lot of attention to their baby's first birthday party. However, they sometimes forget that their child is too young to actually appreciate their efforts. Below are some tips for parents on how to maximize their child's first birthday party without breaking the bank while making sure that it's still memorable.

Document the Event for Years to Come

If there's one thing a parent should invest in it should be the documentation of a first birthday party. Since a child will be too young to appreciate or even remember his first birthday party, it would make sense for parents to preserve the memory for their child. When the child is older, he will surely appreciate all the effort that his parents put into his first birthday party. If the parents can spare the time, they can even put together a little scrapbook for their child so that their child can go over the story of their first birthday over and over again.

Make Sure the Adults Enjoy the Food and Activities

A first birthday party is more of an adult affair rather than a children's affair. Of course, it wouldn't hurt to have a lot of kids present during the party. However, the birthday celebrant will not be able to interact with the other children, much less appreciate magic shows and games. Thus, parents should make sure that activities and food are suited to the friends and family that they will invite to the party.

No Need to Splurge on Giveaways, Decor and Entertainment

While a first birthday party should be special, there's no need for parents to splurge too much on giveaways, decor and entertainment as their child will be too young to appreciate them anyway, other than in pictures. A simple token of appreciation for the guests will do. The decor can be consistent with the theme and need not be extravagant at all. Lastly, parents can concentrate their budget on the quality of the food and the venue, which their adult guests and relatives will appreciate, rather than the host and entertainment.

Have Grandparents, Relatives and Friends Write Down their Birthday Wishes

Lastly, as part of the legacy that parents may want to leave to their child, they can ask grandparents, relatives and other guests to write down their birthday wishes for the birthday celebrant. If it is part of the documentation package, they can have it recorded on video so that the birthday celebrant will be able to see and hear what their grandparents, aunts and uncles wished for him on his birthday. This sharing of good wishes will surely make the event more memorable both for the guests, the parents and the birthday celebrant.

Looking for inspiring first birthday party themes? Why not a story-book themed children's party for your little one? If you are looking for something unique for a toddler or preschooler, add some spice to a children's party by having a DIY Cupcake Booth at your child's birthday party that both kids and adults will love.

Fun Games For Kids Birthday Parties

By Jillian Gallo

Fun games to use at your next kids birthday party are right here. Just choose some of these titles and twist them a little bit. Make them match your unique party theme. For example, Simon Says can become the Mummy Says at a Halloween party or it can become The Pirate Says at a kids pirate party. Use these classic fun party games, add a new title and make it unique to your party. Give your party guests a really fun, fun, fun game session at that special boy or girls birthday celebration.

Mad Libs is a fun way to get party guests to open up. What Mad Libs do is make a story...a funny story. And everyone can help to make this story and it should be silly...that is what makes it so much fun. You begin to play Mad Libs with a basic story line. You must leave some words out and put in the kind of word that will fit there. For example, Mary blank her that blank would need to be filled in by a Verb. Mary wore a blank on her head. That blank would need to be filled in by a Noun. the game goes along? Each child or guest can fill in one of the missing words and then when the words are all filled in read the story....You can find books with party Mad Libs in them or you can make up your own story line using the names of the birthday star and the party guests in it.

Chinese Whispers is another very simple game that is fun to play. Sit everyone in a circle and have someone start playing by telling them the Game Sentence. In Chinese Whispers a sentence or phrase is told to the first player. That player must whisper it to the next player and so on around the circle. When the phrase or sentence is told to the last player, that player must stand up and say the sentence out loud. What is so funny about that? Well, usually by the time the message is delivered to everyone, it has changed a great deal from the original sentence. Make your sentence something silly like "Wet dogs shake and shake to get dry" or "Dogs use umbrellas only when it rains cats and dogs". Now you can also rename your game to fit your party theme. The Pirate Whispers at a pirate party and the Princess Whispers at a princess theme party...and have your phrase match the theme as well.

Musical Party Games are fun for everyone. Freeze Dance and Musical Chairs are two that come to mind right always when we are talking about fun musical party games for kids. With either game you need someone to stop and start the music. To play these games you will need either a dance floor area or chairs set around in a circle. With Freeze Dance when the music starts everyone begins to dance. When the music stops everyone must freeze. If a dancer does not freeze right away they are out. With Muscial Chairs you must have one less chair than you have players. Every time a player is eliminated you remove another chair. Here is how you play. Set the chairs out in a circle and when the music begins to play have all the party guests walk around the circle of chairs. When the music stops each child must sit in a chair. The one who does not have a chair to sit in is out. Let the kids who are out start on a party craft or the next activity. Now to make these fun party games unique, rename them. Royal Ball Freeze Dance or Pirates Freeze Dance will make these simple and fun party games a bit more exciting for your guests.

Pass the Parcel is an entertaining and fun party game for a kids birthday party...and adults will enjoy it too. It is another musical party game so have the music ready. It's one of those fun, fun, fun games that has been handed down through the years because it is enjoyable. This is another game you can rename and give some new life to. To play Pass the Parcel you need a parcel and some music that goes along with your party theme. For a princess party play some Disney Princess songs, for a pirate party play What Do You Do With A Drunken, or for a cowboy theme party use some western cowboy songs. You can name your parcel according to your party theme too. The princesses' package, the pirate's treasure or the cowboys saddle bag are all possibilities for a parcel name. Okay, now, how to play Pass the Parcel. Wrap the parcel a lot. And with each layer of wrapping include a can be a small prize like some temporary tattoos or stickers, or a lollipop or whatever prize you decide upon. Sit everyone in a circle and start the music and Pass the Parcel. Stop the music and the guest who has the parcel can unwrap a layer of wrapping. Plus they get the prize inside. When a player gets to unwrap the parcel and keep the prize, they must leave the circle. Keep going until there is only one child left and of course, they get to keep the prize in the middle of all those layers.

A classic and very fun party game for a kids birthday party is Pin the Tail on the Donkey. This fun kids game is so easy to change into a new version. Pin the Crown on the Princess, Pin the Eye Patch on the Pirate or X Marks the Spot are other fun ideas. Pin the Hat on the Cowboy or the Eye on Muno for a Yo Gabba Gabba party are just a few ways to turn this fun, fun party game into the perfect game for any them party. You all know how to play Pin the Tail on the Donkey...right? Each child gets a tail with two sided tape on it. You blind fold the player who is up, turn them around a couple times and then point them in the direction of the Donkey. They must try to stick the tail closest to where it belongs. The one who does get the tail close to where it belongs gets a prize...of course, you can give everyone a prize for playing. Stickers or temporary tattoos make great prizes for this kind of love them and they are about the cheapest party game prizes you are going to find.

The Pinata game is fun too. Pinatas are a traditional Mexican game. A pinata is really a breakable container for party prizes and candies. The goal of this fun party game is to break the pinata and gather all the goodies hidden inside. These pinatas come in every theme imaginable so all you have to do is pick one that matches your theme and fill it with good stuff the kids will like. Stickers, temporary tattoos, candies and small game prizes work perfectly as filling. I like the pull string pinatas. This is a game that has strings the kids can pull. One of these strings rips the body of the pinata so the goodies fall out. Then everyone tries to gather all the goodies they can. You can buy a pull sting model or you can buy a pull string conversion kit to make this kids party game very safe. To play you hang your pinata up and blind fold each child as they take a turn pulling a string. You can put the blind fold on, and like with Pin the Tail on the Donkey, spin each child and head them off in the direction of the hanging pinata. Tell them about how many steps they need to take and send them off.

Choosing the Best First Birthday Outfit For Your Daughter

Choosing the Best First Birthday Outfit For Your Daughter

By Amanda Cummings

Having a baby is an important time in your life. Nothing is tougher than the first year with a new baby. The first birthday party is a time to celebrate the accomplishments you've made as a parent and the accomplishments your baby has made in her first year.

These days, first birthdays are big events with parents inviting many friends and family. Themes are often chosen to use as a basis of decorating and making invitations. Choosing the perfect first birthday outfit is also important to make your baby shine on her special day.

It's important to keep in mind certain things while choosing a first birthday outfit for your little one. The birthday outfit should match your child's birthday theme with a special character or idea behind it. Your first birthday outfit should be comfortable and easy for your child to move, crawl or walk around it. Many first birthday outfits come with a matching bib which is important to keep such a special outfit clean to keep as a keepsake for years to come.

For girls, birthday tutus are very popular. Birthday tutus are fun because they show off your baby with an enormous amount of tulle and puffy accents. Most shops and boutiques will allow you to create your tutu with the colors you wish to match the theme of your child's party. Some birthday tutus can be made with matching applique t-shirts. Search for the character you are using for your child's theme and you may find a birthday tutu made with that particular character on the tee.

1st Birthday dresses are also popular and fun to buy. A first birthday dress can be kept as a keepsake or be used to take the all important 1st birthday photos with. Many 1st birthday dresses can be personalized with monograms or a name embroidered across the front. Again, search for the perfect first birthday dress by looking for one made with the theme of your child's birthday party on it.

No matter what type of birthday tutu, first birthday dress or first birthday outfit you buy, your daughter will look amazing on her big special day!

Beach Party Games For Kids and Adults

By Dee Schrock

If there is one great aspect of beach party games, then it must be that the children can play them with the adults. During this, the generational gap is stabilized more than before, a feature that you most likely did not even consider until you can feel it in the hugs and giggles everywhere.

You can split beach-themed party games into two-the dry games that take place on land and the wet games in the water. You can combine and coordinate these games for a good time on both land and water, which will be wonderful for everybody.

Games on Land

Now certainly with beach party games being hosted close to water, you cannot help it when you get wet from the ocean sprays. Nevertheless, such games are enjoyed on the beach rather than the water for more fun. You can instead go for the traditional beach game such as volleyball, Frisbee and the very interesting coconut bowling. When it comes to volleyball, it is imperative to consume a lot of water to prevent dehydration and to keep warm and prevent injuries. Remember that the soft sand can influence your ability to run and return the ball.

You can also have Frisbee competitions. Allow 2 people, 1 adult and 1 kid to make a team. Each team that has the most points in knocking over plastic bottles filled with sand within a certain time will win the game. On the other hand, try coconut bowling. Rather than trying the regular ball and pins, you can instead use coconut and bottles filled with sand.

Beach parties hosted on land are not complete if there are no relay games incorporated. You can select from Poop the potato (an easy relay race) and turtle relay (participants push eggs with their chins to a hole in the ground just like turtles), to mention a few relays.

Water Games

Water games involve players getting wet at any or all portions of the game. You can alter some of the land-based games to include the water setting such as:

1. Play a relay game with a bottle. The players will give the bottle from one individual to the next so that person that reaches the finish line on the shore is the winner. You can involve the children however make certain they are the last in line to prevent tiring their more delicate bodies.

2. Water balloon competitions are superb beach party games. Rather than filling water balloons, the player must fill empty water balloons with water, which are then stored on land. The team that has the largest amount of filled water balloons wins.

When it comes to the rewards, you should make certain that everybody would be pleased with them. Therefore, you can get sweet goodies like candies and little toys for the kids while the adults can get useful stuff like sunglasses and sunscreen. You might want to give naughty prizes but do not forget that the kids are near so keep them hidden until an adult celebration on the beach.

Whimsical Tea Party Themes For Little Ladies

By Marcia Schwanger

Exciting tea party themes can add a fun twist to a traditional idea and thrill the special young lady in your life.

Little girls spend countless hours hosting imaginary tea parties - meticulously arranging miniature cups and saucers, expertly pouring invisible tea, and mastering the art of casual chitchat to a captive audience of teddy bears and dolls. Young ladies love tea parties because they make them feel beautiful, sophisticated, and very grown up. So why not make all those childhood dreams come true and plan a party that they will never forget?

1. Princess Tea Party. Every girl dreams of being a beautiful princess in her own Cinderella story, so play the fairy godmother and grant her the wish of spending a surreal afternoon in a breathtaking fairytale. Ask guests to come in elegant, fancy dresses, and make sure that each princess is crowned with a bejeweled tiara. Glitter, jewels, royal colors, sumptuous teacakes, and dainty cups and saucers will transform an ordinary tea party into a grand ball fit for a princess!

2. Valentine's Tea. Valentine's Day is a time to honor and recognize special friendships, and young ladies can celebrate by hosting a red and white tea party that is full of heart. Imagine how special each guest will feel when they are presented with a red rose and invited to partake of delicious heart-shaped treats while sipping savory red teas and sparkling punches.

3. Christmas Tea. Young ladies can come dressed in their festive finery and enjoy an afternoon of spiced tea, Christmas cookies, and fun holiday games. Test their knowledge with Christmas trivia, make a tree decoration, or even stuff stockings for underprivileged children in the community.

4. Tropical Tea. Celebrate summer with a beach themed tea party where guests come in Hawaiian shirts and leis, and tables are laden with fruit bowls or tropical flowers. Young ladies can learn the art of hula dancing while enjoying the refreshment of fruity teas and exotic fruits. An ice cream bar may also be a tasty addition.

5. Victorian Tea. Take a trip back in time and experience an age where refinement and sophistication ruled. Ask guests to come dressed in true 1800s style and enjoy an afternoon of parlor games and dainty petite fours. Decorate a hand fan or fancy hat, and even take time for a fashion show.

6. Alice in Wonderland Tea. Encourage guests to "not be late for a very important date" as they are invited to jump through the magic rabbit hole and enter a wonderland of mismatched tea cups, "eat me" "drink me" signs, and multicolored decorations. Make your own Mad Hatter hats and engage in an exciting game of croquet on the outdoor lawns.

7. International Tea Party. Ask guests to come dressed in the traditional attire of various countries as they take a trip to the World's Fair. Decorate with flags, national flowers, and authentic symbols, and challenge the young ladies to sample international teas. Whether India's Darjeeling, Africa's Rooibos, Thailand's Cha-Yen, or China's Longjing, guests will spend an afternoon traveling the world and experiencing the taste of various cultures.

8. Garden Tea. Elegant tablecloths, fresh flower bouquets, and fancy dresses will transform a typical backyard into tasteful estate grounds. After a fashionable buffet of iced tea and finger foods, young ladies can try their hand at flower arranging, make a craft, or play lawn bowling and other simple party games.

9. Mother/Daughter Tea. Mothers and daughters can dress up in their finest and enjoy an exquisite afternoon of reconnecting and catching up while sipping tea and nibbling delicacies. Have a little fun by giving each other a makeover, test guest's knowledge by taking a mother/daughter quiz, or show off expert poses with a mother/daughter photo shoot.

10. Father/Daughter Tea. Young ladies love to dress up and spend an afternoon enjoying their father's undivided attention. Plan a tea where dads have the opportunity to treat their little princesses like royalty for a day, even sharing in a special father/daughter dance.

Tea parties are becoming a popular choice for every age group and any occasion. Choose from a variety of tea party themes and begin planning today!

Marcia Schwanger has worked in the tea party and hospitality business for over 20 years and created to share her knowledge and ideas. Plan your next party around one of the creative tea party themes she details.

A Pool Party is perfect for those that have a pool available. If your child is young, a wading pool or two will suffice. Send out homemade invitations printed on bright colored paper in the shape of a beach ball or life preserver and even add more details with a 3d paint pen. Make your pool party really hot with some cool decorating ideas. Scatter beach balls all around and other pool toys and props. Add some inflatable palm trees too. Balloons are great at any party. Beach ball shaped mylars can be mixed with primary colored latex ones for a fun effect. Fun games are a must. "Diving for Dollars" is always fun though you might opt to use spare change instead.

13th Birthday Party Ideas For Girls and Boys

By Beverly Frank

A 13th birthday party might be considered one of the most important birthday parties; at least up to that point in the child's life! So it is very important that the party is fun and creative. This article has great ideas for 13th birthday parties. Some of the ideas can work for either boy or girl parties, and some are for combined parties.

Rent Out a Gym

Many towns and cities have a local gymnastics gym. Some of these places can be rented out for an hour or two for birthday parties. These places can be a great idea for a 13th birthday party. There are mats and trampolines, big foam shapes, and pits filled with foam. Thirteen-year olds can have fun for hours here playing tag, jumping around, and playing on the equipment.

When the gyms are rented out, they will usually come with several of the workers to watch the kids when they use the equipment and play around to make sure they stay safe. It might also not be a bad idea to recommend, or at least allow the parents of the party goers to stick around at the gym if they would like to.

This party idea is a great idea for a boy and girl party or exclusively a girl or solely a boy 13th birthday party. But it would definitely be more fun for the kids if there are more kids there to run around and play tag.


A swimming party is a great idea for a 13th birthday party. And this type of party can be done year round. If it is too cold to swim outside, most cities have indoor pools that can be used during the winter. Kids have fun swimming and playing in the water. Most 13-year old teens probably prefer to have a swimming party with kids of their own gender, but this type of party could be a good idea for a boy and girl party if the birthday kid feels comfortable with that.

Though most kids can make up their own fun when they are swimming with their friends, it isn't a bad idea for the parent(s) to have some ideas for pool games just in case the need arises. Games like water volley ball and Marco Polo can be a lot of fun. After the kids swim they can gather together for pizza, cake, and ice cream.


Having a sledding party for a 13th birthday party is definitely dependent on the weather, but if there is enough snow, this can be a great birthday party idea. Sledding is a lot of fun for both thirteen year old boys and girls. Along with sledding, there could be a snow man building contest, or a snow angel making contest. And parents can serve the kids hot chocolate, cake, and ice cream after they have gone sledding.


While some thirteen-year old kids are not quite ready for a dance, some might choose it for their 13th birthday party. There are a variety of ways to go about having a dance for a 13th birthday party. Having a theme might be a fun way to go about having a dance. Kids could be asked to dress up as certain characters from a movie, from a television show, or from a certain time period.

It is also a good idea for parents to have games set up since it may take awhile for the kids to get comfortable dancing with each other. Games such as Twister or balloon volleyball might be a great way for the kids to begin to interact with each other.

A food and drink table is another important thing to have at a 13th year old dance birthday party. It is important that parents keep the table filled with snacks and drinks throughout the party.


Another fun and simple idea for a 13th birthday party is going to a fun restaurant. There are many restaurants that have cool themes and decorations. This can be a fun way for the birthday kid to spend their 13th birthday. A restaurant birthday party might be best for just close friends and family since it can get pretty expensive if a lot of kids are invited.
