Thoughts on birthday party for teens.

I asked DD what did she want to do for her birthday this year. Said she wanted to go bowling, then get pizza and back to our place for cake and a bon fire to roast marshmellows. I asked how many friends, she said with her added in, maybe 16 total.

Holy cow!!! Where she wants to go it's either going to run us, just for the bowling, $130 to $175. It's $260, if we add in 4 pizza's and 8 pitchers of pop to the one package. I have seen the pizza that comes with the packages, it'll be more of a snack for the kids then dinner.

It just seems, like not a lot of bang for the buck. The cheapest option, would be during the afternoon, which I know isn't what she wants, so it be closer to the $175.

I looked up how much it would be to do the other idea she had mentioned awhile ago which was swimming, then the pizza and our place. I like those prices much better. For the 16 kids, it would only run us $56.00 for 5 hours of swimming. That is bang for the buck. Even paying for me, DH, DS, and my brother to get in to the pool wouldn't be much more. It would take 3 of us driving to get all the kids back and forth.

So, which do you think 16 14 to 16 year old kids would like better. 2 hours of bowling or 5 hours of swimming. It would be a mix of boys and girls. She has many close male friends as she does female friends.
