It depends on what he likes. Does he want a birthday party ? Is it a surprise ?

<p><li>Have a BBQ by the pool.
<li>Have a party at an all you can eat buffet or make one at home.
<li>Have a party at the beach.
<li>Have a theme party..treasure hunts, explorations, investigations ,etc.
<p>Something he is into.

Does he like roller skating? If so and you have a roller rink nearby, have one there. Our local roller rink will let you reserve a corner table and bring your own cake and decorations. Make the invitations out for the time you wish to allot for the party, 2 hours is always good. Depending on what time of the year it is you could have a pool party. Most local parks with pools will rent the pool and facilities out for 2 hours for private parties. (02/15/2008)

You could take the kids to a bowling alley. Many places have snack bars where you can purchase food/soda, or serve snacks/birthday cake that you provide. Some lanes even have bumpers for the younger crowd. It's always fun, even for the adults! (02/16/2008)

Play "Pass the Parcel". You get a bunch of little prizes, and wrap them up in like 20 layers of newspaper. The kids pass the parcel around, and every once in a while you stop the ambient music, and the person stuck holding it unwraps just one layer of the wrapping. The person who unwraps the last layer keeps it!

Okay so here's what I am going to do: take your child to a local swimming place, Water World, Six Flags, etc., and just let them swim for 3-4 hours. Take them to the movies after that (let the birthday-goer pick) and then go home and order pizza, etc. HAVE FUN! (03/02/2008)

I'm turning 12. I am a girl, and I am having 6 girls including me at my house. So I got 6 birthday present bags and got two of everything (wash cloths, soaps, hair clips, and a couple of little toy things). We put one of each thing into a bag, making sure that no bag had two of the same thing. Then we gave each girl a bag and played a type of go fish game. Who ever matches all of their things first wins! And who ever has one of the matches gets to keep whatever is in their bag! (05/03/2008)

You could go to an indoor water park like Great Wolf Lodge and just have a small group, because it can get a little expensive. Just get a room like a family suite and let them play at the water park. it's so fun! (06/23/2008)

What I finally did (last month) was have a video game party. That's what my son loves to do, and I have no car to take them anywhere, so it was perfect. We invited 6-7 boys to spend the night, had 2 computers and 2 tvs, 3 game systems, and one hand-held, all in the living room. Of course there were toys, too, and lots of toy swords from the dollar store. Lots of snack foods and drinks, and they had a blast! (06/23/2008)

Have a dance. Invite as many people as you want, get a DJ, some snacks, etc. Make sure you have fun.

I had a spa theme party. We made our own facials, had smoothies, finger foods, went in the hot tub, did our nails, sung karaoke, it was a blast! We bought bubble bath and other spa items and put them in the goodie bags. It was a lot of fun and inexpensive. (08/01/2008)

Have a pajama party. Invite loads of people to a hall and have music, food, etc. And people have to come dressed in their pajamas (08/14/2008)

I was thinking of having a scavenger hunt around the neighborhood. The first person to the end gets a prize, like a bag of candy. Then I was thinking a sleepover with truth or dare. (09/01/2008)

Light saber and sword fights are always good. For themes, I think more of an un-themed party where kids entertain themselves. It's what I'm going to do on my 12th birthday, only 5 months left. (10/11/2008)
