Here’s the sitch: You’ve got a winter birthday, and after
more than a decade of the usual party fare—ice skating, movies, laser
tag—you’re dying for a bash that screams spring.
No worries, girl, ‘cause you’ve got options. Here are five
awesome ideas we love for any time of the year.
Hit the pool. Most
locales offer indoor swimming pools, whether it’s a gym, a private club or a
public rec center. Some hotels will even let you book their pool area for a
party. Take a look in the yellow pages, do a Google search or start callin’
your fave hangout spots and see what you can come up with. Pulling on a bathing
suit in the middle of winter and splashin’ around will make all your buds
Go play in the snow…with
all of your headin’ to the beach toys. Make snow castles and forts out of the
powdery white stuff and decorate with whatever you can find. Have goodies ready

Host a cookout. Having
Dad fire up the grill when the temps drop will make you nostalgic for the 4th
of July fun you had six months ago. For a taste of summer, grab hamburgers,
hot dogs, corn on the cob and all the fixings. While it might be a li’l too
chilly to eat outdoors, spread a quilt on the floor and have a picnic in your
living room. Yum!
Go surfin’. One of
my favorite things to do in the summer is to hit up my local water park.
Slides, wave pools, lazy rivers—I love ‘em all. When it’s frosty outside, the
next best thing is to head indoors, grab a tube (or a board) and dive in. You
won’t get the heat of the sun on your face, but you’ll love playin’ around with
your buds in your hot new b-day bikini.
Luau, natch! Get
those leis ready, ‘cause when your guests walk through the door, they’ll be
entering a Hawaiian paradise. Hit up the dollar store for festive tropical
décor—palm trees and tiki torches are always fun. Ask Mom or Dad to man the
blender so you can serve up fruity frozen drinks with umbrellas, of course.
Have a dance-off and then set up a round of limbo. How low can you
