My son is turning 12, but he doesn't like little boy games. He likes paintguns and go carts. I don't have that much money. Please help fast.

    Paintguns can be an expensive past time, but what about water pistols for a massive water fight with the guests? My sons liked that sort of thing at that age. How about a weiner roast/campfire, water fight, and cake? Another possibility is a pay your own way kind of party. I've sent my sons to parties for paintball or snowboarding -- more expensive activities -- and they had to pay to go. However, if it was me hosting, I'd go with the lower cost option, and pay for it myself.

      I'll give you a great game. Its a bubble blowing contest. For each boy put a piece of unwrapped Bazooka gum on a paper plate. have the boys each hold a plate with gum on it.

      Explain that its a bubble blowing contest and the first one to blow a bubble wins a prize. Sounds too easy right?

      Now take a can of Reddi whip cream and cover the gum and the plate with Reddi Whip on each plate. On your mark-get set-go!

      Each boy then sticks his face in the whipped cream to find the gum. Gets it in his mouth. Has trouble blowing a bubble because of the whipped cream.

      Finally after about 3 minutes and faces full of whipped cream, one of the boys will blow a bubble and win. Give the winner a prize. Make sure you have paper towels and a camera ready for this. You will get great pictures and memories for a lifetime. Have fun!

      My nephew's birthday party was a mall scavenger hunt. My nephew enjoyed this, you can try this for your boys. Just be sure that you and your boys know the mall where the party activity will be held. It's going to be an adventurous party!

      Camping! Even if you can't afford a campground, if you or a friend have a big back yard, you're all set! You could have a BBQ during the day, have a water balloon fight, or swimming, if you have a pool, you can swim, play some sports, do some Archery, fishing, hiking, make s'mores around a fire, and sleep in tents in the back yard! My son loves to do that. You can always find people who can give the kids a fishing lesson, (maybe one of the dads) or a lesson on how to build a campfire! The only thing that will cost money is the food for the BBQ, s'mores and drinks. Just have hotdogs, hamburgers, chips, popcorn, juice, lemonade or Kool-aid!

      Ask friends if they have any skills in fishing, etc., and ask them for an hour of their time, they may be happy to!

      Have a fun birthday!

      Does he have friends he can invite, or would this be a problem? One year when my oldest son had no friends that he could invite just because he wasn't getting along with anyone, we made his birthday celebration a family getaway weekend. We went to the city, saw a dinosaur movie that was just out that he was excited about, went to a science center, ate out in his favorite kind of restaurants, and just had a nice family time.

      A birthday celebration doesn't have to have dozens of guests. If your son has only one or two good friends, you could plan something special for them - a trip to the pool, a movie, a day trip to an amusement park. With only one or two guests, you can do more expensive things. Or maybe he would just like to have one or two friends over to play video games or something like that, hang out, have cake and pizza or something. There is nothing wrong with having a very low key celebration.

      Talk to your son. Perhaps he would like something like eating out at an "grown-up" style fancy restaurant with the family - maybe grandparents as well, - and having a cake there. It is always a thrill to have the servers bring out a cake with candles and sing happy birthday!

      As a former child myself I say the number one thing is to invite people who will actually come. No-shows are devastating at that age. What do the kids he knows like to do? Make the party something they will want to come to.

      Can he play videogames if he is sitting well-supported? What does he enjoy? Table games, scavenger hunts where they have to solve puzzles can be done indoors and/or out. You could have movies and pizza. Bowling alleys have many accomodations they can make, including gutter guards and ramps for rolling the bowling balls down. Unless it is a surprise, ask him what he thinks would be fun. If it is a surprise, ask his friends for suggestions. Good luck!

      Does your son's school have a speech-language pathologist? If so, consult her. She's studied dyspraxia, knows what is popular in school for kids his age, and might have an inside line on what he and his friends can do together that wouldn't be too difficult for him. There's nothing worse than being sidelined watching others have all the fun. She'd also be able to consult with his teacher, and together, they might have picked up on some things he's failed to mention to you that are going on or that kids in your area are wanting to do.
