Hi There,

My daughter will be 10 years old in another a few weeks and I need some ideas of what to do for her birthday. My daughter is only in a small class and I was thinking of her only inviting 5 friends. 3 of her classmates last year had their birthdays at the Local Ten Pin Bowling Alley.

I was thinking of going to a play centre for afternoon tea, or going to movies and afternoon tea or a pizza and movie afternoon.

Any suggestions would be good.

I would think they are ageing out of play centers at 10?

I like your movie and pizza idea.

At that age, we had pizza chefs come and the kids made their own pizzas, which were wood oven baked. We also did cup cake decorating. That party was a real hit.

I've also seen pamper days for 10 year olds at nail salons and high tea parties. Or a slumber party with a movie?

My DD recently went to a birthday party at San Churro. It was a hit!

For her 10th we had an art themed party, and this year (11th) we're doing a café/Alice movie. She did want to do a pirate themed orienteering party on our property, but we're not set up enough for that yet! Next year.

I would've also thought a play centre might be too young for a 10 year old. Here's some ideas depending on where you are:
- movie date followed by sizzler or another venue
- ice skating
- sky zone
- bead party
- build a bear
- nail party at a salon
- plaster party where they make moulds and decorate
Good luck!

My DD at around that age had a party at Lush. All the kids got a $20 voucher to spend at the end of the party. So I didn't have to do party bags etc.

My daughter had an evening (5pm till 8pm) at home Disco Party for her 10th, I had an entertainer from Bop till you Drop.

For her 11th she wants a pamper party.

My DD is turning 8 and wants a disco party, catered with sushi, and a chocolate fountain.  She also wants a piñata.   I found play centre parties didn't go beyond Year 1.  

I think at that age something like ice skating or roller skating, a slightly 'grown up' restaurant (i.e. not too fancy, but not McDonalds), something related to an interest (places such as gymnastics or cheerleading do parties), pamper day.

If it's just a few friends - slumber party with an age appropriate movie and pizzas?

I'm planning the same party as you OP. We are close to a cinema so will get kids dropped off there. I'll hand out bags with pop-top water, mini-pringles and box of skittles, 3D glasses and we'll watch the BFG. Then go to the food court for a sushi platter (pre-ordered), cake and lolly bags. Parents will pick up there.

We just had about 12 kids to our place for 2 hours, lots of party games in the backyard - pass the parcel, musical chairs, bobs and statues, sack races, egg and spoon races, poison ball etc.  Fairy bread, nuggets, chips, cupcakes, etc.  They had a ball.

DD is turning 9.

I'm thinking of a high tea party at a local cafe followed by a sleepover with 2 or 3 friends.

I've seen lots of girls that age do a mini high tea at the cafe at nearby shopping centre.

I made DD's 10th all about me... ;)  Took her and her cousin to the coast for a stay in a sub-penthouse (low rate place though...).  Win-win.  I got to relax on the balcony and DD got to feel "grown up".
