    How to entertain a bunch of teenage boys: G-Rated!

    My son's 15th birthday party will be held tomorrow outside. Besides the outdoor movie, popcorn, food, and such, what else can I provide to entertain them?

    Man I feel terrible acknowledging this but I remember my 15th birthday. Nothing but booze, smokes, girls etc... Good to see some parents still promote a healthy and safe way to have fun. That being said I am 26 and I dont smoke or drink anymore .

    On topic. Get a pellet *** and some empty cans let them shoot out on the yard. I like video games, something like boxing video game that makes a competitive atmosphere. I know at my age I still get hyped when I knock somebody out by hitting the controller buttons as fast as I can with my HR on the moon . In short, kids at that age are very competitive and something that brings an adrenaline rush and bragging rights is the way to go.

    Not sure if helpfull but I still feel 15 and probably like better and healthier things now than when I was that age.

    one year I did a hidden treasure hunt kind of thing in the yard at night and bought a bunch of flashlights and had them hunting for treasure in the snow. stuff like candy. not sure how that would play out with teens though

    my son is 17 and he just did 2 nites on the cape w friends about 10 guys and gals with supervision, one day the girls went to the mall and the guys just stayed in playing video games

    fire pit?

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Yeah, that's a great idea, let see how long it takes before they start shooting each other...
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Just make sure there are at least a couple of girls there. That will make the party feel more grownup.

    15 is old enough to ask what he feels would be fun.

    Or if you want it to be a surprise ask a couple of his friends who can at least keep their mouths shut if they feel like they are insiders.

    Ah and FOOD can be a lot, but you need to know what your son and his friends like.
    Perish any man who suspects that these men either did or suffered anything unseemly.

    Explosives are always a treat.

    Somebody eating light bulbs is sure to please.

    Giant rats from Sumatra will entertain for hours, especially if the rats are hungry.

    If all else fails eat a lot of beans for lunch and give them a burning methane display.

    I'm sorry. I know what 15 y.o. boys like but I also know your limits.

    Good Luck.

    Jarts - the ones with the steel tips. And also, maybe you can get Selena Gomez for entertainment.

    Probably too late, but we organized a Laser Tag game for my daughters 15th, a local vendor brought the whole setup to our house, ended up being a great time.

    ....only a selfish, cruel woman would not return here with a full report of how this went. Extra points for ER visits.

    Throw a couple of large paper bags full of burgers and fries in the middle of the room, then shut the door and drive away.

    Brilliant! You forgot though, a single xbox controller and a one player game with the bag of burgers and fries.

    You guys/gals are AWESOME! I laughed so hard reading your responses. So these things were a hit:

    Cotton Candy
    Cheese Curls
    Doritos
    Hamburgers
    Hotdogs
    Jello
    Cupcakes
    Popcorn
    Glow Sticks
    Fire
    Blow Dart ***
    Potato ***
    Video Games
    Balloons

    I was going to show a movie outside with the projector but it was to windy and then it rained. So they pretty much stayed inside after dark and ate and played video games.

    ......with the exception of the video games, sounds a lot like the last stoner rock concert I attended.

    Flour sack wars.

    Get old panty hose. Add a cup of flour. tie a knot, tie another knot, add a cup of flour, tie two more knots. When you cannot tie anymore knots, cut the pantyhose between the two knots, leaving you a little ball sized bag of flour. These are your flour bombs. Make a bunch. Divide boys into teams and give them flour sacks and let them have a battle. My son's scout troop does this.

    When I was a cub scout, we just picked guavas off the cubmaster's tree and battled with those. Much less prep time.
