    Default Party ideas for 11 year old

    So I am considering perhaps throwing a party for DD1 this year. She doesn't have parties very often, but I did let her have a pool/slumber party last year. I wouldn't normally have a party two years in a row, but it's her last year in primary school with her friends, so I'm toying with the idea. Ideally, I wouldn't want to do it at my house, because it's not really big enough to have lots of people over. Her birthday is also the same week I have exams for uni, so I don't want to have to do heaps of work and organising. I was thinking I wouldn't mind having one somewhere where you can just pay them to kind of take care of it, and you don't have to entertain the kids yourself, but I can't really think of anywhere? Obviously play centres and stuff are too young. Can anyone think of anything that older kids might like? (Oh and she's a summer baby!)

    My friend did a pamper party for her daughter. I know it isn't everyone's cup of tea, but might be something you'd consider. They had manicures and a mini facial and kind of like a high tea thing - all organised by the salon they did it in.

    What state are you in OP?

    You could have a disco party, either at a venue or at home where you hire someone to teach the kids some dances/plays the music and have pizza as your food (make it a late afternoon/evening party.

    Cupcake making and decorating party (at a specific venue).

    Art party, lot's of places have these.

    Plaster Paris party at a venue, you can get pieces for older kids.

    My friend had one for her DD at an indoor trampoline place, looked like a lot of fun for older kids!

    I was going to suggest this. The kids love it. I take my son who is 9 to flip out world at least once a fortnight and he loves it.

    We have inflatable world close to us. That's a hit with all ages.

    Oh good ideas, I hadn't thought of some of those! We did the trampoline park last year for DD2 (who actually ended up inviting quite a few of DD1's friends anyway) so I don't know if she want to do that again, even though she DOES love it there. Skating is out as well, as she is uncoordinated and can't skate very well, so she avoids it But I might have to look into some of those other ideas.
