Party ideas for hungry teenagers
There are not many universal truths, but teenagers eating you out of house and home is definitely one of them. One minute the pantry is chock-full of ingredients, snacks and cereals set to last you a week, and in two days' time, the only thing that hasn’t been eaten is the drywall. Why not harness this insatiable energy when thinking of unique party ideas for teens?
Kids cooking classes are one of our most popular Melbourne workshops for tweens and teens, and it’s not hard to see why. Not only does it involve cooking and eating delicious food from all over the world, but they’re hands-on, active classes that keep brains and hands busy. One style of class that’s emerging as one of the best things to do in Melbourne is “Masterchef” cooking workshops. These classes - suitable for both adults and teens - turn a regular cooking class into a Masterchef-style challenge, with cooking games, time challenges and pitting kitchen team against kitchen team. Although these Melbourne workshops are competitive, they’re also playful and inclusive, so you don’t have to worry about Gordon Ramsay shouting at the back of your head.
Alternatively, everyone loves a pizza party, and if it wasn’t one of the first things you considered when thinking of teen party ideas, then you’ve clearly never done this before. That’s ok, by the way! But instead of going down to Dominos and buying 10 pizzas and leaving them on the living room table, what if the party made their own pizzas? We offer a healthy range of pizza making classes in Melbourne that make for fantastic birthday party ideas for teenagers! Fun, engaging and delicious, the group can learn how to throw pizza dough and cook authentic Italian-style pizza like a true chef in these tasty and popular Melbourne workshops!
Most of our cooking classes cater to different dietary requirements, so contact the instructor ahead of time to ensure that everyone can enjoy the art of pizza making.
Party ideas for the artsy teens
Raising a burgeoning artiste? Giving your teen birthday party ideas an artistic theme is a great way to make the party stand out, and our arts and crafts classes are some of the best things to do in Melbourne with kids! Being offered the chance to create something is not only a gift in and of itself but an awesome way for friends to share an experience together that’ll bring them closer together.
When it comes to what’s on offer for your teen party ideas, we certainly have no shortage of sewing and embroidery classes. As well as pottery and ceramics classes, our vast array of Melbourne workshops are sure to contain an experience that’s right for you and your party ideas for teens. Sewing classes are often quite popular with girls and are great for small groups, however, these classes require a considerable level of concentration and although a lot of fun, don’t offer the party atmosphere you might be looking for when looking for something for a larger group of teenagers.
Our ceramics and hand building pottery workshops are one of the top party ideas for teens! Encourage them to harness their creative freedom by embracing the messiness and madness of handmade clay design! Pottery classes are one of the most enjoyable indoor activities Melbourne offers, making a ceramics class for teens one of the best rainy day activities and weather-proof party ideas.
It’s also important not to rule out painting and art and macrame classes! Kids and teens can macrame a rainbow at Think Thornbury, get messy at one of our painting workshops or build their own mug (for Milo, of course) at a pottery course. Think your teen would prefer something a little more mindful? Many of our Melbourne classes and workshop instructors will happily cater to teenagers willing to learn how to craft a watercolour masterpiece!
