Old School Teen Movie Night
Movies are huge in your teen years so why not share your favorite movies from when you were a teen? Are the kids fans of sharks? If so, watch some shark movies on Netflix or your favorite streaming service. Not only will it introduce them to some of the classic older movies but it may also foster a new interest in things.
Backyard Camping Night
Take the party to the backyard and let the teens have a backyard camping night. You can light the fire pit and have them roast marshmallows or make S’mores as they tell stories and enjoy the night. You can grill out with the kids and make some food on a stick or desserts on the grill.
Scary Movie Night
If your teen likes scary movies, put together a scary movie night with their friends. Teens are at that age where they can watch movies that are a little more sophisticated. Horror movies, with parent approval, and some popcorn can make for a fun teen sleepover party idea.
Video Game Night
Grab the video games and let the teens go wild with playing the games, competing together, and enjoying a night of video games.
Set up an area where the teens can take their own photos! To make it cheap, you can use a box and have the kids paint or decorate it. They can make face cutouts or dress whacky to take some fun pictures.
Indoor Camping Night
Bring the camping gear inside for a party they’ll never forget. Instead of setting up camp outside, set aside a room in the house to put up a tent for your tween’s party.
We’re not talking about just ordering a pizza and letting the teens and tweens enjoy it, we want to go bigger. Let the kids make their own custom pizzas with their favorite toppings and sauces. Go all out with a gourmet pizza recipe or make sweet dessert pizzas. Mini heart shaped pizzas are always a hit too!
