Gather a bunch of their closest friends and head to the Art & Bonding Studio and get ready to splash those brushes and explore the world of creativity. All tools, brushes and canvases are provided along with unlimited use of acrylic paints. There are professionals on hand if they require a tip or two in creating those masterpieces.

This may not be a common idea, but it's something different to consider - throw a bowling party! Over at Wangsa Bowl, there’s even bowling in the dark held monthly for a unique experience.

Teens can put their problem-solving skills to the test in these exciting escape game rooms which require real-time role-playing strategies. There’s all sort of challenges to be done such as figuring out clues, solving puzzles and riddles, unlocking doors and more in order to ‘escape the room’. A great party game for both adults and youngsters, we reckon this should be more suitable for the older teens.

Nothing beats a pool party on a humid, tropical morning. Just slap on the sunscreen, hire some cool giant floats and get everyone to come in their bathers.

But if it’s a pool you’re missing, there's also the option of renting a private residence with a pool for a splashing good time. To rent those giant floats, visit Float Time KL or Letsplash.
