Planning a birthday party for a tween can be a real challenge. Since they’re not really little kids anymore, and they’re not yet teenagers, it can be hard to find things to do that everyone’s going to enjoy. One way to get past this is by holding a theme party someplace where there are lots of activities to keep kids and adults entertained. As one of the best birthday party venues in Lawrenceville, GA, Stars and Strikes is an ideal spot for themed parties for tweens, so here are some ideas to get the juices flowing.
Host a Bowling Party
Bowling parties are as much fun for tweens as they are for everyone else. Bowling itself is social, it’s active, and it’s a joy to play. It’s one of those few indoor activities that encourages tweens to be loud and free-spirited without getting in trouble. Also, bowling is the kind of thing that’s a blast even if you’re not very good at it, and with bowling ramps and bumper rails, anyone can play, regardless of skill level. Adults love it too, so—if your tween doesn’t object—you and their friends’ parents can join in as well.
Throw an Arcade Party
You know who loves arcade games? Everybody! When it comes to fun activities for birthday parties in Lawrenceville, GA, the arcade at Stars and Strikes has something for everyone. There are classic video games like Pac-Man, and modern active games, such as Dance Dance Revolution. Also, with classic midway-style arcade games such as Skee-Ball and basketball, kids can compete with each other for prizes. You can have them form teams for some competition or let them off on their own to see how many tickets they can win.
Give the Tweens a Spa Day
While spas might not be for every kid, if you’ve got a crew of tweens that appreciate some of the finer things in life, giving them an afternoon at the spa can make any birthday a truly special one. All that pampering can make a tween awfully hungry, so after they’ve been treated and massaged to their hearts’ content, take them to Stars and Strikes for dinner at Coach’s Corner. With classic and gourmet burgers, sandwiches, wings, wraps, salads, and more, there’s something for everyone no matter how picky the eater.
Give to a Cause
A lot of today’s tweens are more socially conscious than the kids of past generations. If you have a tween who’s passionate about a particular charity, why not encourage them to use their birthday party as a fundraiser? They can ask for donations in lieu of gifts, and you can set up contests and raffles to benefit a particular cause. Also, just because you’re throwing a tween party for a good cause doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. If you purchase a party package at Stars and Strikes, you can have your own party room and take advantage of discounts for bowling, the arcade, and extras such as laser tag and bumper cars!
