At a young and curious developmental stage, a teenager can be hard to please. If you’re planning a birthday party for a teenager, you need to come up with cool birthday party ideas that meet their expectations. You can write down things that they love and enjoy doing to help you narrow down the list to several activities that you can include in to the festivities. But, this is not always easy to do and can become a bit more complicated. From outdoor and indoor parties to gaming, there are many teen party ideas.
As a parent, you need to determine which activities are fun and also safe for your teenager, especially considering the current COVID-19 situation. A small get-together, hosting outdoor-only events would do though you can also hold indoor parties as long as people are maintaining social distance and taking the necessary safety precautions. Below are creative birthday party ideas for a teenager.
1. Set up a movie night
Most teenagers love and enjoy the thrill that comes with watching movies. You can set up a movie night at the cinema or plan a sleepover where your teenage son or daughter can invite their friends over for a movie night. Rather than go to the cinema or theatre, an indoor movie night will save money on cinema tickets.
You can also set up an outdoor movie night in the garden. Find a location outside and set up a cozy place where your teen can hang out with friends. Provide a comfy sitting area with lawn chairs, giant cushions or beanbags, throws, blankets, snacks and some drinks. You can also add a gazebo in case the weather changes. Set up an outdoor movie screen and decorate the garden with outdoor lights for a comfortable seating.
2. Hire a party bus
If you’re looking for a stylish way for your kid to enjoy their special day, hiring a party bus provides a unique experience. You can include friends and family members as part of the party crew. Party buses provide a comfortable setup and seating for you to enjoy while on the road. Get in touch with Price 4 Limo and reserve a party bus with an AUX/ipod connection that allows you to play your favorite music while on the road. You also get the services of your own personal chauffeur/a designated driver.
3. Escape room
If your teen enjoys playing games, you can engage him and his friends in escape rooms. With an escape room, you give your teen a chance to engage in a game that involves competing and working against the clock to solve a puzzle and escape which gets their adrenaline going. Escape Rooms are also available online and are suitable for small groups. This gives your teens a chance to have a real-life experience for a teen birthday. Include party decorations and refreshments.
4. Hotel sleepover
Older teens who are almost past their teenage years (16 years and above) will appreciate luxurious surroundings and some independence. A hotel sleepover with access to amenities such as a swimming pool, a games room, fun team activities and the opportunity to order a movie would be a great way to spend their birthday. You can book an adjoining room to be able to check up on them but give them space and time to enjoy and have fun.
If your teen is a girl, consider having a spa night within the hotel. This is a lovely combination with your hotel night’s birthday sleepover. During your spa session, you can also include pedicures and set up chairs and a magazine on each chair or a table up with mirrors, nail varnish, nail stickers, etc. The teens will get the chance to have fun doing each other’s nails.
Costs will vary depending on the hotel, so always find out if the price range is within your set birthday cost budget. Once you’ve found the ideal hotel, find out if the hotel has any rules for all attendees. In addition, consider finding out if there are limitations on the number of guests accepted. Most hotels have a recommended number of guests who can stay in a room.
These are a few of many birthday party ideas that are super cool for your teen and their friends to enjoy. You don’t have to spend too much money to give a teen a great time. Whatever birthday party idea you might have in mind, ensure that it’s what your teen likes and it adds joy and fun. If it’s an indoor or outdoor party or game, organize your party decorations to match the theme.
