The children who are not quite yet adults have always been a challenge when arranging a party in Victoria or Melbourne. You can't pull the wool over their eyes as you could get away with for the littler children. And these guys will crack the sads if they find out you are stingy with money at thye planning stages of the party. Parties for mid-ranged kidds are another show altogeather. Most tweens and teenagers want the best party money can buy! Normally this entials spending a bucket load of cash. Pool parties, pony riding, clowns, magicians, fairies and face painters won't cut the grade with this ever demanding age bracket for their end of year or birthday party fun. Mobile animal farms are also regarded as young kids stuff and won't be acceptable to teenagers and the like for their next party event. Because this age bracket of kids are focussed on things like the opoosite gender, heavy metal music, disco, funk and the rest, you may if you are lucky be able to get away with a party in a large room and plenty of noise. Sometimes however this is just not enough to cut the grade and you may need to add something. This added something could be something as simple as a change of place or time of day. Perhaps having a party at a big old farmhouse or on a boat is all that's needed to make it the best party of the group.
Some richer people have been known to hire a few hot cars for the tweens to have a night on the town, or at least cruise the roads if they are not old enough to be of a legal drinking age to get in to pubs and the like.
Teenager parties are perhaps better run in the evening or early evening, so that there is no conflict with daytime sporting events, clothes shopping and everything else the kids may get up to in daylight hours. You should have good secutiry or supervision at the teen event as it's not unheard of for gangs of kids to gatecrash the party to attack some person they don't like. While this is most common for males rather than females, because most teenager parties have both genders at the event bear in mind that the risks in terms of security and potential violence are present at most teen events. Adult supervsion is also necessary to stop drug and alcohol-related problems, however some aduls may themselves be a part of that problem. With tweens and teens, heaps of parents prefer to keep things at their most basic and just take a few friends to somewhere special and to foot the bill. This may be a day trip to a wildlife park or even the local river or Zoo.
Tween and teenager parties have many choices in Victoria and if you let your wildest imagination run wild, you'll find plenty to see and do in Melbourne.
