4. Craft Party for teens
For girls mostly in the tweens will love this party. Channel theme. Get some unfinished items like wooden trinket boxes unpainted pottery, T-shirts, picture frames bags, etc.. just make sure they are plain as possible. Present the guests with fabrics, paints, sparkles, glue and everything they need to bling out the craft. You can usually do this pretty cheaply but it will depend on what type of materials you buy.
5. Scavenger Hunt
I still love scavenger hunts. The key to making a good one is THOUGHT. I mean you have to find not only good hiding spots but also come up with sneaky clues and creative hints. Tween boys love this kind of party. Make them work against a clock to keep the time down. And made make some rules the competition can get pretty tense.
