When it comes to birthdays, turning thirteen is a milestone worth celebrating. As it represents the transition from child to teenager, 13th birthdays are often viewed as a "coming of age". If your daughter is unsure how she wants to celebrate officially becoming a teenager, consider one of the following cool 13th birthday ideas.
A sleepover is a great birthday party idea for a thirteen year old. Your daughter and her friends can relax in their pyjamas and slippers, watch movies, play games and do each other's makeup and nails. Another fun sleepover activity is having a fashion show. You can gather some clothing and costumes before the party and have the girls pick fun outfits and pretend to walk down a runway.

If your daughter's birthday falls in the summer, consider having a pool party. With a pool party, you can throw a beach, tropical or nautical themed party and centre your food and decorations on your theme. Along with swimming, provide guests will fun backyard games, such bocce ball, corn hole and Frisbee, and be sure to have some music.
Invite your daughter's closest friends over for a spa day. You can give the girls cute fuzzy slippers and spa masks and spend the day relaxing and doing facials, manicures and pedicures. If you don’t want to have the party at home, you can throw the party at a local spa or salon.
For something unique and different, take your daughter and her friends on a field trip to one of her favourite places, or do something your daughter really enjoys. You can take the girls horseback riding or to an amusement park, musical or dinner and a movie.
