Teen birthday partySo your teenager wants a party, you want to celebrate in someway.  After all they are now a teenager, they have friends and you want to celebrate the fact that you have got them to 13 and older!

However, teenagers are notoriously difficult to please, especially when it comes to birthday parties. If you’re planning a party for your teen, you want to make sure that the activities are fun and engaging for everyone.  They are too old for the tried and tested or have already done everything under the sun for their friends parties.  They want something cool and fun….so now you have a problem!

Here are some ideas for teen birthday party activities that are sure to be a hit:

1. DIY Photo Booth

Set up a DIY photo booth with a fun backdrop and props. Provide your guests with a camera or smartphone, and let them take fun pictures throughout the party. This activity will encourage your guests to interact with one another and create lasting memories.  This can be combined with a good old fashioned knees up, with food and music.

2. Scavenger Hunt

Organize a scavenger hunt with clues hidden around the party location. This activity will encourage teamwork and problem-solving skills, and it can be adapted to suit any party theme.  At EscapeTrails our classic scavenger hunt experience is one of our most popular options for teenagers whatever their age as it is fun, active and social.

3. Karaoke Night

Host a karaoke night where your guests can sing their favorite songs and dance together. This activity will help your guests to develop their confidence and social skills, and it’s sure to be a hit with everyone.  If your teen and their friends are super confident this could be a fun activity – especially if you go to a venue to do this.

4. Game Night

Set up a game night with board games, card games, and video games. This activity will encourage your guests to interact with one another and develop their competitive skills. Always fun for kids but if you have too many may be a little hard to keep everyone entertained.  Have a larger group, 10 or more, then an EscapeTrails game might be just what you need and what more is that the kids will get some fresh air while playing a game.  Get them active and being social while solving a mystery, saving the world or finding treasure.  Take a look at our EscapeTrails adventures here.
