Girls of any age love to be pampered and look good. A trend among ten to thirteen year olds is to throw a party at a local hair salon or spa. They spend the afternoon getting manicures, pedicures, facials, and a new hairstyle. These are easy to plan. Just call your local hair salon, a small locally owned one works best, one call and go from there. Then spend the rest of the day shopping at the mall and showing off your new look.

The outdoors is a great adventure waiting to happen. It is also the perfect place to plan a birthday party. You can spend the day boating on the local lake, fishing, or taking a group of kids to a baseball game with all the hot dogs they can eat.

If your child likes a challenge, consider an activity like rock climbing. You can even do this if the weather is bad. There are plenty of recreational places that have climbing walls inside. Going to the cave is another great option.

Bowling alleys, roller skating rinks and ice skating rinks can also be reserved for parties. You can rent these types of places by the hour and most have a place where you can make cakes and ice cream and put up party decorations.
