A 13th birthday party is one of the bigger birthday parties in a child’s youth. This is when the girl is officially a teenager. And though they may not look or act any differently than the 12 year-old from the day before, they certainly want to be treated differently! This article discusses some great 13th birthday party ideas for girls.
If the birthday girl is into makeup, painting her nails and getting her hair done, this can be the perfect idea for her 13th birthday party! And since many 13 year old girls are not allowed to wear makeup on a daily basis, though they wish they could, having a makeover birthday party can be a huge hit.
There are several supplies that will need to be gathered together for a makeover 13th birthday party. The parent of the birthday girl should buy some inexpensive makeup from the local drugstore. Since it is for fun, they should buy eye shadow in bright colors such as blue, green or pink. Pink and red shades of lipstick, a couple of tubes of massacre, some pink and red blush, a couple bottles of bright nail polish and some glitter are also important makeover party supplies.
It is important that the girls are kept safe while they are applying their makeup. A great way to do this is by making sure each girl has their own applicator for their eye makeup, their own tube of massacre and that they wipe the lipstick with a tissue before they apply it to their own lips. These little tips can help prevent the spread of infections and other germs while the girls are having fun.
If the girls want to do each other’s hair, they should be supplied with curling irons, ribbons, bows, bobby pins and hair spray. It might be fun if they can also use spray-on hair color to add some pink or orange highlights to their new dos.
There is another twist to the makeover party. Instead of allowing the girls to do their own makeup and hair, older teen girls from the neighborhood or girls that work at a local salon could do the makeovers instead.
Remember to take some glamour shots when the girls are all dolled up!
Many girls love to arts and crafts. A 13th birthday party can be a great time for the girls to create something fun. There are many crafts that are fun and appropriate for 13 year old girls. They can make their own purse, they could design their own t-shirt or they could make their own jewelry.
Depending on the type of craft, the parent/party host or hostess should make sure to have the supplies needed. It can also be helpful for them to have some extra supplies on hand, just in case someone breaks or ruins their original set.
If the 13 year old birthday girl loves to cook, a cooking birthday party can be a great idea. The girls can learn how to cook a meal and then they can eat their finished product for dinner. They could learn how to decorate cakes and each girl can decorate their own birthday cake.
A great party favor for a 13th cooking birthday party could be a darling apron. There are many cute aprons with fun colors and ruffles that now come in sizes perfect for a 13 year-old. It could also be fun to give each girl a cookbook that contains the recipes that they cooked that night, along with some other recipes that they could make any time.
Sleepovers can be a lot of fun for 13th birthday parties, plus they can be combined with just about any theme. After having the main portion of the party, the girls can settle down in a living room or in the girl’s bedroom to have a snack-eating gab fest! Girls love to have the freedom of being able to stay up and talk to their friends all night.
Parents should make sure to supply the girls with enough food, pillows and blankets to keep them comfortable throughout the night. They should lay down a few rules to keep the girls safe, but also encourage them to have fun.
