Birthdays and birthday parties are a big deal for kids, it is their one day each year to be the center of attention and get spoiled. Coming up with a new and exciting theme each year may seem daunting to parents but it doesn’t have to be. Boys are usually very active and adventurous, they need to be kept busy and entertained.
Here are some wonderful birthday party ideas for boys that will give you some inspiration for your son’s next birthday:
Nerf Wars Party
Nerf guns are incredibly popular among young boys and what better party to have than to have a Nerf Birthday Party!
You can organize your own Nerf birthday party at home and let all the boys know to bring their favourite Nerf gun with or you can book an event at a place that has a combat arena and a party area for afterwards. Look to book at a place that has a great combat area with plenty of places to hide and a good variety of Nerf guns for the kids to choose from.
Robot Birthday Party
Most little boys love robots and a robot themed birthday party can be loads of fun. You can ask the kids to make their own robot costumes and come dressed up. Have a competition for the best dressed robot and hand out prizes. Don’t forget to have your camera ready to get photos of all the costumes.
If you are feeling adventurous you could even have boxes, paint and other goodies at the party so the kids can design and make their costumes there as a fun activity.
You will be able to have loads of fun with your child preparing for the birthday party making robot decor.
Paintball Birthday Party
Nerf gun parties are great for younger boys, but if your child and his friends are 10 years or older you can think about stepping it up a notch and having a paintball party. You may even be able to find a place that offers low impact paintball which is suitable for kids 8 years old.
Paintball is often played in an outdoor setting which is great for parties in the summer time.
Keep in mind that any children under 18 years old must have parental or guardian consent so make sure to get all the parents to sign their consent forms well in advance to avoid any disappointment.
Lego Birthday Party
Lego is another all time favourite for all kids, making it the theme for your kids birthday will always be a hit. Making your own party decor and cakes for this party will be so much fun, or you can order in to make it memorable and special too.
There are so many awesome ideas for Lego parties and party decor – just check out Pinterest and you won’t be short on ideas.
Make sure to have lots of Lego activities ready, there are so many things you can do to keep to theme such as pin the pants on the Lego man instead of pin the tail on the donkey!
Something you just must include is to divide the party guests up into groups of 3 or 4 and have a master builders competition. You can give out prizes for the best Lego constructions made.
Laser Tag Party
Laser tag is another very popular choice for birthday parties for boys. Laser tag is suitable for any age from about 5 or 6 years old, it is loved by children and adults alike.
Some laser tag companies offer indoor venues so it can be a great option for parties in the winter months when the weather is cold and wet. Having an indoor party that offers the fun and excitement of laser tag will always be great in winter since kids need to be active, especially if they have had a good amount of sugar.
Girls and boys will both love a pool party in summer. If you have a pool at home you can easily organize a fun and exciting party for your child.
Stock up on blow up lilos, tubes, pool noodles, boogie boards, beach balls and anything else that is fun and floats. There are so many fun things you can include with a pool party such as water balloon pinatas – make sure to have paper umbrellas for your cool drinks and make your party food themed too.
Ice creams and popsicles will go down a treat.
