I don't really know if this is where I should put this or if it even belongs here, but...

...for the past two years a couple of my friends have thrown me a gret birthday ...day! Fun stuff, friends, dinner, movies, and for my birthday this year (on Jan. 2nd!) =] they even took me to the zoo. It was great! I want to do something fun for the birthday of the mastermind of the events.

I have some ideas, since we are all poor it won't be anything huge, you know, dinner, movies, but.... I thought it would be cool to have a couple birthday pranks too.

Something fun and creative, cheap and cool and of course DIY. It will be about 1-3 of us setting it up.

Something we could do/make and leave in his yard or something. Maybe a carefully planned scavenger hunt throughout the city? I dont know. I need help. Help me?

A piata comes up to mind really quickly. If you're going for a real prank, put confetti out of recycled paper and plastic bags. If you want to put yummy treats - go ahead. It could be made out of thin papier-mache.

I made a notes scavenger hunt once - stuffed papers around the house, with clues as to where to find the next one written down on the previous one. Depending on what you write in them, it could be made easy or really difficult - and the possibilities for decorating the paper are endless!

How about a picnic for your birthday party diva?  If you held it in a park you could include the scavenger hunt ideas and the pinata.  Opps....I forgot that perhaps you live in a snowy region.  How about a corney trip to the bowling alley--you could have a "ball" and make it a theme.  Guests could bring ball related gifts and food could be round objects--pizza, for example.   Follow up with a trip to a ball game......stop me now...I'm on a roll!!!!!

Scavenger hunts around the city are A LOT of fun. Here I'm talking about the one-clue-leads-to-the-next-spot kind rather than the "Find one [insert weird object]" kind. One time a while back for my birthday, my family arranged a city-wide scavenger hunt where I had to follow clues to go to different shops, and each shop had a gift waiting for me (that my family had paid for in advance) with the next clue located inside the gift box with the item. The last gift box was a really nice fancy-ish dress with a pair of my own shoes that matched the dress, and directions to a fancy restaurant where they were waiting for me.

So, I know you don't have much to spend, but you could still do one. For example, for one birthday when I was really into Japanese things, my friends set up a surprise cavenger hunt that started just around the house (the note on the fridge leads to the note under the toaster, etc.), then extended to the backyard, then to the park a block away where I found a note to the library, where I found a note written in Japanese that I had to translate using the library's books, and eventually I wound up at a nice Japanese restaurant across the street. So all together, all they had to pay for was lunch. And it was a great deal of fun.
