Tween Glamping Party
Weather won’t ruin this idea. Visions of girls screaming at the sound of noises in the yard make this indoor idea sound much better. Indoor bathrooms and bugless campouts make it even better. Whether creating one huge tent with sheets, a real pop-up tent or individual tents make this party theme so much fun to put into motion.
What you need:
- A tent or tents…this doesn’t need to be expensive…borrow if you don’t want to make one 😉
- A “fire” pit – create this with rolled brown towels to simulate logs add red, yellow and orange tissue paper with battery operated candles, mini lanterns or glow sticks for the fire.
- Beach/camping chairs or bean bags

Tween Spa Party
This is one party theme that you can make super simple or really run with it.
Decide if you will do facials, manicures, pedicures, hairstyles or all of the above.
A spa party works best with a few adults to help out especially if you are offering different spa services.
We even have a local salon that offers this service on days they are normally closed. The one my daughter attended had two ladies present, one did mani/pedis and the other did hair do’s. They provided pizza, snacks and smoothies served in pineapple drink cups.
If doing it at home you will need:
For pedicures and manicures:
- Dishpans to soak feet or bowls for hands
- Nail polishes
- Cotton balls
- Nail files
- Nail polish remover
- Nail art kit …we have this one

Tween Art Party
Girls night outings for painting are a thing to do around here but it could easily be a fun activity for your next tween girl party.
What you need:
- Aprons – these could be personalized with puffy fabric paint
- Don’t want the mess, try oil pastels like one of these or …search for make your own art studios in your area and book a party!
Tween Art Party Food
- Pretzel rods dipped in different color frosting make great paint brushes.
- Palettes can be used to fill with candies, jello or fruits of varying colors.
- Cupcakes can be frosted in different colors or left white and decorated with rainbow jimmies or m & m’s
Since the art creation would take up a good portion of the time…adding another game really isn’t necessary but pictures of the artists with their masterpieces would be a great idea.
Again photo booths are so much fun.

Paint chips from the store can be had for free and make great supplies for making your own decorations.
