Girls party idea suggestions please
My eldest is 10 in a couple of weeks and we were going to take her and some [girl] pals to our local go-karting place. But they're not really offering much – 15 mins on the track for £13.00 each, no races, just going round and round for 15 mins and that's your lot. Not impressed.
So, apart from them going to the cinema and then a meal, anybody got a good/different idea of what to offer her?Posted 8 years agomeikle_partansMember
your local climbing centre? something like this: http://manchesterclimbingcentre.com/childrens-parties/birthday-parties/Posted 8 years agollamaMember
Are you sure its not you who wants to do the go karting?
pony riding (need to be younger)
disco (can invite loads)
ice skating (difficult getting them all there)
climbing (a good one)
hire the local pool (can invite loads and suprisingly cheap)
as above but water walking
photo shoot (expensive but they loved it)
massive sleepovers (**** hate them)
We nearly did cwmcarn uplilft party but it was a bit hard logisticly speakingPosted 8 years ago
She's surprisingly keen to go karting 🙂
She's already been to (and therefore not very keen on repeating):
ice skating (might be able to repeat)
hire the local pool
cinema/meal (best bet for a repeat)
I could just offer her the DSi upgrade that she's after instead of a party but I think we're a bit late for that.Posted 8 years ago
Forgot to add to the 'been there' list – indoor skiing at Chill Factor in Manchester.
Bleedin 'eck….. how come they get to do all this stuff? They're off to see the X factor tour in April (target age!) as well.
Cinema and pizza top of the list at the moment (always top of my list anyway).Posted 8 years agofoxycoxyMember
My daughter's 12 this time. Wish I'd done something girlie and aimed at young children for her 10th Birthday ( Princess party dresses, jelly and ice cream) because now she's at high school she's acting like she's 18! This year she's having a spa day with some friends and a meal. I'm allowed to go along, but not allowed to hang out with them or even sit with them for the meal! There's me thinking I was a pretty cool young Mum, but no 🙁Posted 8 years agomeikle_partansMember

who is the parent and who is the child in this situation?! i would be telling them to pay for the meal if they dont want you there.
(disclaimer – i dont have 12 year old children so i dont know what its like – end of disclaimer)Posted 8 years agofoxycoxyMember
Guess I just know how she feels, I would have been much the same had my Mum wanted to come along with me and my mates. I don't really understand, as all her friends think I'm pretty cool, but she finds me quite embarrassing! Maybe it's my dancing/ singing/ terrible jokes. I don't know. As far as Mum's go I think I'm pretty hip (lol, I've just proven her point haven't I?!)Posted 8 years ago
