Are you looking forward to throwing your teen a sweet 16 party? Are you a teenager looking for ideas on what to do for your 16th birthday?
Either way, you’ve come to the right place.
A teenager’s 16th birthday is a milestone that signifies independence. After all, 16 is the first year a teenager can drive on their own.
Read on for 5 awesome sweet 16 party ideas.
1) Epcot, Disney World
Some people think that Disney World is only for very young children and their parents to enjoy. This is simply not the case.
Spending a weekend at Epcot for your 16th birthday would be an incredibly memorable experience and a good alternative to a traditional party.
Epcot is a theme park in Disney that allows you to experience eleven different countries in one day! You can stroll through the England exhibit sipping tea and then try on a kimono in Japan.
Epcot is a cultural experience, but it is also an incredibly fun time and a great way to mark the occasion of a 16th birthday.
2) Have a Massive Slumber Party
No matter how old you are, you’re never immune to the delights of a traditional slumber party.
Invite over your closest friends and have a slumber party complete with your favorite foods, movies, and music.
Teen girls can enjoy giving each other makeovers. A good party favor would be to make each girl a pack of makeup and then have them spend hours trying different stuff on.
Teen boys can enjoy setting up a board game table and playing Dungeons and Dragons, or spending hours on the Xbox.
The most important part of a sweet 16 is spending time with friends who care about you, and a sleepover is one of the best ways to get quality time together.
3) Test Drive Some Cars / Go Karts
Did you recently get your license and are ready to get behind the wheel? Ask mom and dad to take you to test drive cars.
Driving around in different cars can give you a good feel for what you like to drive. It may even push your parents in the right direction and get them to buy you an epic sweet 16 birthday set of wheels.
