If your tween is a movie lover, you may want to think about throwing a movie star-themed birthday party to celebrate their birthday. There are many fun decorations, games and party food that you can use to create your movie star-themed birthday party for your tween. Here are some ideas you can use to throw your tween a movie star-themed birthday party they will love.
Tween Movie Star-Themed Birthday Party Invitations:
The first step in planning your movie star-themed birthday party for your tween is to make the invitations. There are many creative ways to make birthday party invitations for your tween’s movie star-themed party. The first idea would be to cut out stars from thick paper, such as cardstock, and write the details of your tween’s movie star-themed Birthday Party on one side of the star. Next, cover the edges of your stars with glitter glue to add a bit of shine to your star birthday party invitations. If you’d like, you could write the name of each guest on the back of each star before handing out your birthday party invitations. Another idea for making birthday party invitations for your tween’s movie star-themed party would be to use empty 35mm film canisters. Simply write your tween’s birthday party details on a slip of paper, roll up, and place inside the empty canisters. You could also sprinkle in some star shaped confetti to add some fun to your film canister birthday party invitations. One last idea for your movie star-themed Birthday Party invitations is to use index cards. Write the details of your tween’s birthday party on the lined side of the index cards and then decorate the plain side. To decorate the plain side of the index cards, cut out pictures of your tween’s favorite celebrities, such as Zac Efron or Hannah Montana, and glue or tape the pictures on the plain side of the index cards. You could even suggest that your guests come dressed as their favorite celebrity pictured on the back of the invitations.
Tween Movie Star-Themed Birthday Party Activities:
Tweens are at the age where pin the tail on the donkey just won’t cut it anymore. When planning games and activities for your tween’s movie star-themed Birthday Party, try to find fun ideas pulled from their favorite movies and television shows. For example, your tween and their friends can sing karaoke, singing songs from the popular television movie High School Musical or High School Musical 2. You could also set up a dress up station allowing your tween daughter and her friends to dress up as their favorite tween queen, such as Hannah Montana or Ashley Tisdale. Tween boys can dress up like Harry Potter and perform their own magic show for their friends.

A fun party game idea for your tween’s movie star-themed birthday party would be to play a trivia game based on the movie your tween and their guests watch at their birthday party. Before the party watch the entire movie yourself and write down trivia questions as you watch the movie onto index cards, along with the answers. After your tween and their birthday party guests watch their favorite movie you can quiz them afterwards with the trivia questions you have written down. For prizes you can hand out items that are related to the movie’s theme. For example, for the movie Pirates of the Caribbean you could hand out sacks of golden foil wrapped coins. For the movie High School Musical you could hand out packs of trading cards, pens, or other memorabilia which feature the characters from the movie.
