Boys are known for their energy. So, planning a boy’s birthday party should be no less of a thrill. Here is a top five list of ideas to get you started!
- Replace serving bowls with toy Tonka dump trucks and fill the backs of them with your snack food.
- Yellow hard hats can also double as decorations and party hats.
- Signs such as, “Construction Zone Ahead!” and “Dig in!” will enhance the atmosphere and maybe even get a laugh or two from the excited party goers.
- For this theme, serve snacks like gummy worms, rock candy, or pretzels to imitate things outside that boys love.
2. The Cat in the Hat:
This theme is really becoming popular. You can do a lot with all of the quirky sayings and goofy characters in the Dr. Seuss books.
- If your boys are well-versed in their Dr. Seuss characters, a game of Guess That Book would be a fun way to test their knowledge of Dr. Seuss quotes.
My little boy is in love with all things safari animals. From the unique way they look, to each one’s distinct expression of sound, boys are mesmerized by them.
- I would choose three to five different animal types and use them as inspiration. It would be easy to go overboard on the variety of animals presented.
- Give each guest the option of dressing in the color of their favorite safari animal.
- Fun activities would include: pinning the body part on the various animals, guessing the animal sound, and a safari station where they could pack a small bag with essentials like binoculars or sunglasses.
4. Army Camo:
For the hunter, a little boy who may have a parent who serves our country, or if your little guy just loves soldiers and all things battle related, this theme is perfect.
- Green and brown cupcakes, a cake topped with little toy army men, various candy and snack bowls that can be renamed with things like "Cannon Balls" and "Cookie Grenades" are just a few suggestions for your food presentation.
- You can find camo inspired craft paper and hang up homemade banners around the party room for a super easy decoration.
- Tear up green and black butcher paper into various shapes and sizes and place them on the walls of the party area and hang green netting on the ceiling to create a camouflage effect.
5. Camp Out:
For the outdoor lover, creating a camping experience for his birthday is a fun way to recreate a scene that he enjoys.
If your party is during the day, have a scavenger hunt to search for different plants and wildlife.
- At night, break out the s'mores buffet table with add-ons such as; different types of chocolate, pretzels, and nuts.
- If you make cupcakes, make chocolate ones with orange and white icing that resembles a campfire.
- Have your birthday boy help you search for large pinecones and small sticks to display your party food signs on.
When the time comes to plan a special party for a special guy in your life, these ideas are lots of fun and easy to pull together!
