Planning a party for your child is hard enough as it is, but as children get older, it gets even more challenging! We at Ontario Bakery have watched many children grow up and as they do, their parents share their birthday party joys and triumphs with us. We want to save you the trouble of birthday party fails, and throw a celebration that not only your child, but their friends will enjoy too!
Here our the best birthday party themes and ideas for 10 -12 year olds!
Spa Party Theme
This one's great for the girls. Ask the girls to bring their bathrobes and slippers to set the scene for this theme - day/night at the spa. Set out different facial masks and peel masks - don't forget the cucumber slices! Set up different stations for manicures, pedicures, facials and hairstyling. Let the girls rotate to each station every 10-15 minutes. Have a different color nail polish for each guest and let them try them all.
Birthday scavenger hunts can be fun - especially the mall scavenger hunts! The main idea of the scavenger hunt is to divide into teams then each tween team races to see who can find (or do) the items on a list first.
Tween Idol Theme
Set up a karaoke machine with a good CD of popular songs. Tip: You can find great deals on used CD's and karaoke machines on Ebay and may even be able to set it up through garage band. Ask which of the guests wants to be a judge and set them up at a judging table. Then have the performers come out one by one and sing their favorite song (like American Idol). Vote for the favorites and have another round each time eliminating one of the performers until you have a winner.
What's more fun than being set free to splash around in the sun? This one's great for all times of the year - as you can go indoor or outdoor! From slides to lazy rivers, this is an option all enjoy!
Basically, this is a fancy costume party. Make sure everyone comes in a mask and see how fast they can figure out who's who!
Tweens are fun to be around.... when they're having fun too! Make sure their party this year is fun and totally cool! Make the finishing touches complete with custom cakes, cake pops and cupcakes from Ontario Bakery and you'll totally create a success!
