- Well, i am 10 and my birthday is coming up. I think just keep it simple but have fun. You could do makeovers, watch movies, play games, create foods, and so much more! The most important thing is to match the party with her personality! Trust me, she'll have fun. Hope it works.

Great slumber party
- I had a slumber party this year and it was really fun. We got a limo out to my farm and had a treasure hunt then some free time then dinner. We watched a movie in the cinema. At around ten some astronomers came and we looked at the stars then went to bed. The next morning we just ran around and ate pancakes.

- I recommend doing a Hawaiian theme. Simply just buy plastic coconut cups an grass skirts. Make it feel tropical. I am 11 and this is what I did and it was AWESOME!!!

- I am turning twelve and decided that I might do a neon party and use the glow in the dark makeup with my friends then go in the pitch black basement with my friends and have a dance party it seems so fun but your parents need to let you wear makeup and have your friends stay over to let the party last a while.

- You could have a party with about 5 people and have a sleepover with a couple of the people you invited, about 2.
- For my 11th birthday I had a American doll sleep over at a hotel in Tysons Conner and we went to the store. We had a blast.

- I think tweens just want the moms to stay out of their way and let them do their own thing. Like what I did for my 13 year old, we went to a private gym for a few hours with her friends, and then went and they played dress up and watched movie, ate candy, and had fun. In the morning I made them breakfast and they played outside

- for a great party a slumber party is my favorite. you can give the kids a time to go to bed,a movie to rent,a place to sleep and games ether on the wii/xbox and let them figure out what to do i did this for my ninth birthday party and i had a blast. i'm 11 and i still love the idea and it works for kids 9-13.
