Chil­dren’s birth­day

Teenager's birthday: interesting celebration ideas

Not every teenag­er knows how he or she would like to cel­e­brate their birth­day. From this, of course, it is not eas­i­er for par­ents, because they often do not receive an ansr to a ques­tion from their chil­dren. Some of the teenagers do not like to attract exces­sive atten­tion from the out­side, while oth­ers, on the con­trary, want to be at the epi­cen­ter of all events at any hol­i­day. In many ways, the cel­e­bra­tion will depend on the nature of the teenag­er, his pref­er­ences and desires. Next, will take a clos­er look at inter­est­ing ideas for cel­e­brat­ing a teenager’s birth­day, con­sid­er the rules for orga­niz­ing a hol­i­day, con­tests and games, and also get acquaint­ed with ready-made sce­nar­ios.

Rules for organizing a holiday

In order for the hol­i­day to go off with a bang, the first thing you should not for­get about before start­ing the orga­ni­za­tion is the pref­er­ences of your child. Only after lis­ten­ing to his ideas and expec­ta­tions is it worth mov­ing on to the ini­tial stage of prepar­ing the cel­e­bra­tion. It often hap­pens that a child does not want a mag­nif­i­cent hol­i­day at all, which is imposed on him by his par­ents. This point should def­i­nite­ly be tak­en into account, because a teenag­er may want to call only a few friends.

To prop­er­ly orga­nize a par­ty, it is very impor­tant to plan it cor­rect­ly. Do not refuse help if one of the rel­a­tives expressed a desire to help orga­nize the hol­i­day.

First, it is impor­tant to deter­mine all finan­cial points, as ll as think about an approx­i­mate bud­get. It is worth con­sid­er­ing and writ­ing down how much mon­ey will be spent on food, home dec­o­ra­tion, small gifts to guests if con­tests are held, and also do not for­get about pos­si­ble oth­er relat­ed expens­es. Of course, teenagers love var­i­ous fast food and oth­er not-so-healthy foods like chips. Usu­al­ly, such treats do not hit the par­ents’ wal­lets, but in recent years it has been impor­tant to order var­i­ous can­dy bars for chil­dren and author’s treats for guests, which can cost a decent amount.

A teenager’s birth­day can be held at home, in an apart­ment, or arranged in some insti­tu­tion. Often, home hol­i­days are cheap­er than those that should be trav­eled. This issue is best dis­cussed direct­ly with the future birth­day man, tak­ing into account a lot of fea­tures and tak­ing into account the fam­i­ly bud­get.

Once the approx­i­mate bud­get is drawn up and the venue is cho­sen, you should pro­ceed to the list of guests. It should def­i­nite­ly be com­piled with a future birth­day boy or birth­day girl. Many experts rec­om­mend always count­ing on a few more peo­ple, because friends of friends can come unplanned to teenage hol­i­days.

An impor­tant point in orga­niz­ing a teenage hol­i­day is the choice of date and time.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, not always a teenager’s birth­day can fall on a day off, which means that not all friends can come due to cer­tain cir­cum­stances. If there are few guests, it is advis­able to ask each of the invi­tees or their par­ents if it would be con­ve­nient for them to attend a birth­day on a cer­tain day, espe­cial­ly for close friends and rel­a­tives of a teenag­er. An inter­est­ing solu­tion for noti­fy­ing guests can be post­cards or elec­tron­ic invi­ta­tions.

Choose a place

You can spend a teenager’s birth­day both indoors and out­doors. The sec­ond option is great if you live in a pri­vate house, if the ather allows it. Besides, if the child real­ly wants to spend his birth­day in nature, but the fam­i­ly lives in an apart­ment, you can always rent an inex­pen­sive gaze­bo in the park or set­tle on a cozy sum­mer ter­race in a cafe.

A home birth­day is cozy in its own way, in addi­tion, many teenagers are not averse to spend­ing their long-await­ed hol­i­day with­in the walls of their beloved house or apart­ment. The main thing is that no one dis­tracts or dis­turbs them dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tion, there­fore, when choos­ing a place in a house or apart­ment for a hol­i­day, it is advis­able to take care of the room where the par­ents will be with­out inter­fer­ing with the par­ty. If the music in the venue is loud, it is advis­able to warn the neigh­bors about it.

If the par­ty will be held at home, the cel­e­bra­tion can be arranged in the liv­ing room or in the hall. It is desir­able that the room is spa­cious, and sev­er­al zones can be orga­nized in it. Girls, for exam­ple, are very fond of danc­ing, while boys often do not mind play­ing games. There must be a place for all these enter­tain­ments.

In addi­tion, do not for­get about the place for plac­ing treats, as ll as a recre­ation area.

Party theme

In recent years, theme par­ties for teenagers have been very pop­u­lar, they will include a lot of inter­est­ing things. For exam­ple, a trop­i­cal par­ty with orig­i­nal cos­tumes and deli­cious cock­tails or a hol­i­day in the style of pirates.

Con­sid­er some of the most pop­u­lar hol­i­day themes for girls and boys in their teens.

  • Amer­i­can par­ty. Many teenagers are very fond of the Amer­i­can theme, and there­fore some of them will sure­ly remem­ber such a par­ty. For an Amer­i­can-style birth­day, you should choose good Amer­i­can music, this will eas­i­ly help to make a future birth­day boy. As an inter­est­ing attribute of the hol­i­day, a birth­day cake with an Amer­i­can flag can be pre­sent­ed, but invi­ta­tions to a par­ty can be issued as tick­ets to Amer­i­ca.

In gen­er­al, there are no lim­its and restric­tions, the main thing is to give free rein to your child’s imag­i­na­tion. Guests can also be offered a spe­cif­ic dress code.

  • A mil­i­tary-style par­ty will sure­ly appeal to teenage boys. To cre­ate such a hol­i­day, it is very impor­tant to choose the appro­pri­ate attrib­ut­es. Guests, for exam­ple, can come in appro­pri­ate mil­i­tary cloth­ing. For a hol­i­day, you can orga­nize a very suc­cess­ful table with refresh­ments, which can also be dec­o­rat­ed in a mil­i­tary style.

Teenage boys will sure­ly appre­ci­ate all the prepa­ra­tions for the cel­e­bra­tion, espe­cial­ly if they are offered inter­est­ing con­tests and games.

  • Many teenagers can appre­ci­ate an Ital­ian-style birth­day. This theme par­ty is rel­e­vant for both girls and boys. In addi­tion, Ital­ian-style par­ties are very pop­u­lar late­ly. As treats for teenagers, you can cook or order deli­cious piz­za, as ll as serve tra­di­tion­al Ital­ian desserts.

It will not be dif­fi­cult to dec­o­rate a room in the Ital­ian theme; from the sim­plest and most afford­able dec­o­ra­tions, you can buy balls in the col­or of the Ital­ian flag.

  • Also, teenagers will sure­ly appre­ci­ate the par­ty in the style of super­heroes. Some par­ents may say that this style is rel­e­vant for younger chil­dren, hov­er, this is far from the case, because a par­ty in this style is pop­u­lar even among old­er young peo­ple. Usu­al­ly a par­ty in this style implies a cer­tain fan­tas­tic dress code, unique para­pher­na­lia and an orig­i­nal fes­tive table with the sym­bols of the cho­sen super­hero.

The most sought after images of super­heroes are: Spi­der­man, Bat­man, Cap­tain Amer­i­ca, Cat­woman and Super­girl.

Par­ents can invite the boys to have a cow­boy-style par­ty or an “Around the World Par­ty“if the child and his friends are fond of trav­el­ling. Teenage girls will sure­ly enjoy a paja­ma-style par­ty or a beau­ty salon-style par­ty.

The best contests and games

To enter­tain chil­dren at home at a birth­day par­ty, it is rec­om­mend­ed to pre­pare fun­ny and inter­est­ing con­tests in advance, as ll as con­sid­er hold­ing a vari­ety of games.


Board games and com­pe­ti­tions allow teenagers to perk up and not get bored dur­ing their meal. They are espe­cial­ly rel­e­vant for cheer­ful com­pa­nies. Com­pe­ti­tion at the table with let­ters. The let­ters of the alpha­bet on cards or sim­ply writ­ten on paper are pre-fold­ed into the box. The box is passed to all the guests in turn, every­one must pull out their let­ter from the box, and then name as many words as pos­si­ble on it in 60 sec­onds. Who­ev­er names the most words start­ing with a giv­en let­ter wins.

If the teenage par­ty is intel­lec­tu­al, and all the guests who have gath­ered are fond of one par­tic­u­lar top­ic, for exam­ple, cin­e­ma or lit­er­a­ture, then you can offer them one fun­ny con­test. To do this, write on pieces of paper the names of movie char­ac­ters or, for exam­ple, famous actors. Then the sheets should be fold­ed into one box and begin to trans­fer. Every­one who has cho­sen a piece of paper should try to por­tray the char­ac­ter whose name is writ­ten on the piece of paper. For exam­ple, teenagers can write the name of Jack Spar­row from Pirates of the Caribbean and then try to draw him.

This game can also be remade, and take ani­mals as char­ac­ters, por­tray­ing them is even more fun.


One of the sim­plest and at the same time inter­est­ing con­tests is “Burn the Bal­loon”. For chil­dren to play, they need to be divid­ed into two teams, par­ents can be the jury. Each child should have a ball in their hands, on com­mand, the chil­dren should burst the oppo­nen­t’s balls. The team with the most bal­loons left will win.

The “chair game” is one of the most com­mon and sim­ple, because it can be played both at home and in the yard. Chairs are placed around, but one less than the num­ber of play­ers, and then any music is turned on. On com­mand, all teenagers should sit on chairs, and who­ev­er did not have time, he leaves, after which anoth­er chair is removed. Play until the last remain­ing play­er.

“The Float­ing Apple Game” For her, it is nec­es­sary to col­lect water in two large con­tain­ers and put apples in them, divide the teenagers into two teams. There should be as many apples as there are teenagers. On a sig­nal or when the music is turned on, the chil­dren must catch the apples with­out using their hands. The team that catch­es the most fruit will win a prize.

If the birth­day is held in a big house, then as an inter­est­ing game, teenagers can play hide and seek.

So that those who lose in com­pe­ti­tions do not get upset, because chil­dren are dif­fer­ent, they can be giv­en incen­tive bonus­es, for exam­ple, sets. And the win­ners will be giv­en some­thing more valu­able, for exam­ple, toys.

Script examples

Find­ing a cool script for a teenager’s birth­day is not always easy, but you want to have a suc­cess­ful hol­i­day so that not only the child, but also the guests have good mem­o­ries. The sce­nario of the hol­i­day allows you to act in an orga­nized man­ner, with­out miss­ing any details.

  • At the end of all com­pe­ti­tions, skits and games, you can take out a birth­day cake, the can­dles on which the birth­day boy or birth­day girl will blow out. If a pho­to zone is orga­nized, pho­tos can be tak­en both dur­ing the par­ty and at its end.

Scenario #2

  • Wel­come speech for the hero or hero of the occa­sion. Words of con­grat­u­la­tions from the host of the evening. Also, at the begin­ning it can be not­ed that all the guests know for what rea­son they have gath­ered, hav­ing greet­ed them.
