40 Activity Ideas for Teens (more below!)

13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 - Choose activities to match ages & group interests!

Trying to think of Cool, Fun, Crazy or Cheap Games and Activities for Friends / Guests? Here are a whole bunch of unique party ideas!

1. Pool party (home, a friends house, the YMCA?)

2. Go to or play a sports game (football, baseball, soccer)

3. Twister and other active games

4. A dance contest

5. String treasure hunt - (Set up before the party and you need a LOT of string!): Tie an item or a tag with the name of each guest on then end of white medium weight string. One at a time, leaving the beginning on the string near the front door, take the ball of sting and take it all over the place (under tables, over chairs - just avoid having anything breakable- like a lamp- in the way). Do this for each person and create a giant "web" through your play area. This would even work outside. When all or most guest have arrived, give each of the beginning of there own string and let them climb through and around things to get to the end of their string. Have a prize or something cool at the end of the trail.

6. Make your own mini pizzas: Have dough made in advance. Put out lots of toppings (or ask each guest to bring one) and supply sauce and cheese. Bake and munch!

7. Hide things in the back yard or inside the house (like little wrapped gifts or fake coins). Have an Easter-egg hunt of sorts. The person who finds the most wins.

8. Play improv drama games - these are fun theater games like on the TV show "Who's Line is it Anyway?" Search the Internet for drama games for kids. These are very, very funny once the crowd is warmed up.

9. Watch a great old funny movie (check out the Marx Brothers, Abbott and Costello, or Jerry Lewis films). Dress in vintage clothes. Serve popcorn and movie sized boxes of candy.

10. Got a Wii? Everyone loves Wii. Borrow what you don't have and ask guests to bring favorite games. Smarty Pants Trivia Game for Wii is fun. Or what video games do YOU love most?

11. Check out the GREAT ideas by others in the comments section below. THANKS for the great ideas, everyone!

12. A girly party? Makeovers are fun! Fairly cheap hairstyles can be done at beauty colleges (by students who are in training). Or find a mom or friend who is great with hair and make-up. Get gorgeous - Then go out to eat!

No money for a fancy dinner? Deck out the dining room at home with the best china and serve something fabulous - even if it is only the birthday cake!

13. Get ingredients ahead of time and cook a fantastic fancy or crazy dinner as a group. Then EAT!

14. Pirates Dice is a fun game, based on the Pirates of the Caribbean (Arrrrr). Several people can play. We added fake gold coins to our game so we could make bets! How about chocolate gold coins? Yum!

15. Just hang out, gossip, and tell jokes. Have LOTS of great snacks!!!!!

16. Hire a face painter, or paint each others' faces. Be sure to use real face paints.

17. Say cheese! Have everyone bring a digital camera (or pass one around). Take pics of silly faces, costumes, glamour shots, and anything else to make a great slide show of scrapbook of the party. Email everyone the photos after the event (no computer? Try the library!).

18. At bridal showers, a common game is to make wedding dresses out of toilet paper (with a few people being the "models"). How about a toilet paper dress up contest based on the party theme, a movie, fancy outfits, or funny costume ideas?

19. Have the birthday person wear certain accessories for about half the party. Then that person removes those items and has everyone write down how many of the missing items they can describe. Or the birthday person can completely change clothes and let everyone guess what he or she was wearing before (include a hat, shoes, socks, rings, etc).

20. There are lots and lots of printable games online. Look for places you can make custom word searches (add all the party guests names) and such.

21. Feeling brave? Let the guests decorate the birthday cake. Provide a LOT of extra icing!!! As an alternative, each person can frost and decorate his or her own cupcake.

22. Make an outdoor treasure hunt in advance. Write rhyming clues on paper and hide them in order. Split guests into teams and see who can find and solve written clues fastest.

23. What does your area provide? Can a church room be borrowed for a dance? Does a sports place have party packs (bowling, ice-skating, etc) or is there a skateboard park? A zoo? Ask for group discounts or find a place to use for free if money is an issue.

24. What does your home or a friend's home have to offer? A pool? A sledding hill? A place to create art or record music? Brainstorm and ask around.

25. Want a party that will make a difference? How about arranging a volunteer activity? Ask local charities or help gather food for your local food bank. Help a senior citizen by having a house-painting party or a yard clean-up. Have a garage sale to raise money for those in need. Celebrate with pizza afterward!

26. Buy a Murder Mystery Party Game (there are some linked on this page) or have someone write and arrange a Murder Mystery event. Guests dress as characters to match the theme.

27. Remember to have some "chill" time to just talk. Leave time for opening presents and cake, too!

28. Truth or Dare is an old favorite (<< click that link for dares and questions!!). Try not to make anyone uncomfortable & have good fun.

29. Older teens may like to rent a limo, go out on a double date with friends, or such. See the list of ideas for older teens on this page.

30. If the weather is nice, consider field games like relay races. Think up nutty ideas for a silly group event.

31. Have an ice cream sundae or banana split making contest. The most amazing, grossest, or cutest can win a cherry on top.

32. Like crafts? Make a cool craft at your party.

33. Play a paper clip race game (the larger colored ones are fun, but any will work). Players form teams and stand in circles. Paper clips are passed around the circle and each teen adds one clip to build a growing paper clip chain as fast as they can. The group with the longest chain (after maybe 4 minutes) wins. For another game, try playing this game in reverse!

34. Traditional party games are still fun. Try charades, telephone, sit-on-a-balloon popping, hot potato, and musical chairs. When played by teens, these kinds of games can get really hilarious.

35. Hot day? Water balloon fights, tossing games, and passing games are a good way to stay cool.

36. How about going to a local community event, school play, or other cheap or free event?

37. How about hosting a Hawaiian luau?

38, Make up questions for a trivia game that fits your group of friends. Sports? Movies? TV Shows? Music? Misc. Trivia?

39. Playing Guitar Hero is usually a big hit.

40. Set up a homemade carnival. Play carnival type games like popping balloons with darts, tossing beanbags, toss dimes into cups, etc.

Food and Drink Ideas

How about setting up or adding a fun food-making and serving activity area?

Is a fire pit is available? Guests can cook hotdogs or marshmallows and make melty s'mores.

Do you have fresh lemons to make lemonade?

Look around the kitchen. Do you own a fondue pot? An ice cream maker? A drink fountain?

If not, how about setting up one of the cool appliances below? Choose from bubble tea, snowcones, snacks on a stick, a chocolate dipping fountain or a fancy punch bowl.

A 13th Birthday Party should be Epic!!!

Whether at home with friends or family or out to a theme park, restaurant or other party venue, a party for a kid turning into a 13-year-old teenager should be fun and memorable.

As a party writer, I get a lot of my best birthday party ideas by brainstorming. You can do this too! Toss ideas around about great birthday party ideas and party themes.

Some questions to ask:

  • What does the birthday teen enjoy?
  • What are some new interests?
  • What has happened over the last year?
  • What is the teenager (or teenager-to-be's) favorite movie, music, color, or food?

(Check out the awesome Star Wars birthday party treats above. Wow - How about having a Star Wars / Clone Wars movie marathon!)

Thinking about these kinds of questions can give you great ideas for a birthday party!

Happy 13th Birthday!

Balloons - Cool or not?

Unique Ideas for Parties for Older or More Mature Teenagers

Midnight Movie (check local theaters or set it up at home). Then find an all-night diner for banana splits and movie chat.

Throw a Dance - favorite theme of choice. Could be based on a favorite band, color, goth, 80's punk, 1920s, 1950's classic rock 'n roll.

How about a Vampire Twilight Book Discussion or Movie Party? Think costumes, black décor, maybe a movie...Brainstorm your favorite parts of the Twilight Saga Series.

Know a bunch of musicians? Have a jam session. Those who don't play can sing or be the audience. Have everyone bring guitars, amps, etc. Be sure to have a lot of electricity available.

Got a favorite sport? Base a party around that. Take the whole gang out to a game or go play your own game!

Movie Theme Night - Find a suitable movie and have everyone dress the theme or characters of the film. THAT will get their attention at the theater! Can you imaging a group of 20 doing a Pirates of the Caribbean or Indiana Jones flick? Could be silly or scary around Halloween.

Scavenger hunt at the mall or in town. Everyone works in groups and "captures" their finds on video/DVD recorders. Ideas for items to hunt -

1. Someone kissing a fish

2. Getting a stranger to do the Macarena dance

3. A purple sweater

4. Buy 3 cents of gasoline

5. Someone in the group trying on the stupidest outfit that can be found

6. Etc! Have fun with it.

Throw a massive surprise party!

Have a Murder Mystery Party. You can buy kits with pre-written scripts, or write your own. Everyone comes in costume.

How many things can you cram into one day? Meet for ice cream for breakfast, go mini-golfing, go swimming, have a picnic in the park, go roller skating, go to a movie, have a pizza and poker party - you get the idea! Switch it up to fit your friends, area, and budget.

Have a glam photo shoot. Get parents, friends, or a pro to do awesome pics along the waterfront, in front of a fancy hotel, whatever your style... Make everyone think you are famous and make people follow your group around like celeb-watchers.

Base the party plan on ANYTHING that the birthday person loves, be it something silly, a horror movie, an artist, crafting, just hangin' out and gossiping, a fav TV show, or whatever!

These are just a few ideas to get you started. Be creative! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

How to Have a Hollywood Par-tay, Daahling...

For a fun and flashy party, go to Hollywood! Or bring Hollywood to your event venue with fun décor; lots of sparkle, cameras flashing, and maybe even a red carpet!

* Color themes for a Hollywood party might include black with silver, gold or white with red accents.

* Teen Hollywood party activity ideas: Hang around a pool wearing very cool sunglasses, watch award-winning movies (all night long?), or just dressing to the nines and living a life of luxury for an evening.

* Star party foods could be as simple as hotdogs and popcorn to munch while teens watching movies, or a deluxe as a gourmet spread with fancy appetizers and mock or real cocktails (depending on ages, etc).

I like the Hollywood party idea because it can be as subtle or as over-the-top as you like.

Wanna go all out?

* Rent a limo for your "celebrity" friends and go out for a great night on the town!

Following are some party goods ideas. Enjoy!

      I am turning 17 in October. I have no idea what to do for my birthday yet, seeing as I am going off to college in a year my parents want to keep it simple. ( This will be my last birthday at home for years). I am trying to invite some of my best friends from Anaheim CA. What is there to really do, as of now there will be 12 people including my parents and a brother, 6 girls maybe 3 guys.

      @anonymous: My sons birthday lands on Memorial Day. Lots of his friends usually want to be with their families on the holiday. Why don't you extend the invitation to all members and have it potluck. You could provide the cake and drink. A bonfire sounds like the perfect way to end the night with friends

      @anonymous: That sounds really fun! I would make up a casual invite and have a sort of drop-in party day where people can come and go. Maybe say something like "group sports and getting muddy from about 1 to 5" and "bonfire starts at 8" or such, so enough people show up for the sports and/or come in the evening.

      I love this idea because you can do it for free! Ask everyone to bring a snack to share (or a potluck dinner item), put someone in charge of cups and drinks, and ask everyone to bring sports equipment to share. If you have a crafty friend or family member, see if he or she would like to decorate a picnic area. If BBQ's are available, you can ask people to bring their own meat (hotdogs, burgers, whatever) to cook and maybe provide buns and condiments.

      Happy Birthday! Have a great time!

      I'm 14 and I don't have much money and I have a lot of friends, but my birthday is over Memorial Day weekend. I don't usually have a lot of friends come. Planning a big party would be a waste. I don't know what to do for my party and a lot of these ideas don't sound like me. I like mud and sports and so do all of my friends. I'm thinking about doing a big get together during the day with sports stuff in a big field and then have a bondfire when it gets dark. How do I plan this and how do I find a way to get people to come that fits into their schedule and mine?

      @anonymous: We are like the same person. I turn 14 a day before you on January 28, I LOVE Harry Potter and One Direction, and I'm also planning a birthday party! I'd suggest a movie night/sleepover, beach party (If you're near one), bowling, mini golf, lazer tag, paintball, go out to eat, bonfire with smores, Harry Potter themed, or a dance party! Hope I helped :)

      @anonymous: What a great birthday, 14! Yes, you want to have a good party. 20 friends is perfect for some to be dancing and others to be hanging out eating, talking, eating (lol), laughing. I love the idea of putting some quicky fun games on tables that guests can just pick up and play anytime - like Apples to Apples. Having a few decks of cards around will get someone doing card tricks and others playing 21 or even Go Fish (silly, but fun). And of course, Twister is always good for a laugh.

      If you have a mix of music, a mix of things to do, yummy food and drinks, all your friends will enjoy celebrating your big day. If you want to throw in a bit of a theme, you could add some decor items and have a themed birthday cake.

      I hope you have an AWESOME birthday!

      I'm turning 14 in January 29th but I'm celebrating it on the 11th because we are on school holidays during that time and we actually go back to school on my birthday so we decided to do it earlier.... I really can't think of anything to do for my birthday though !!! Mother wants me to organise it now so we can have everything ready on time and organised quickly but I don't know what to do !

      I love Harry Potter and I'm obssesed with One Direction, I'm ibnviting probably 20 people max. The only real problem is that most of my friends have different tastes some are girly some are tomboys, some hate one direction and some love them, some are going to be dancing and some are just gonna sit out !!! So I really don't know what to do !!! Budget is not widely open but not EXTREMELY tight either !!!! I really want it to be fun and something for me to remember is my first year in high school so its important birthday !!! Pleaseeee help !!

      I am having an icing creation party where all of my guests get to create a little something out off icing which they can keep as a merobilia.

      I planned a roller skating party for my daughter a couple years ago and I gave the finger flashlights (you mentioned above) as party favors. They were a big hit, especially when the rink turned the lights down to skate. I highly recommend those! Great lens! Thanks for sharing.
