10th Birthday Ideas

My son is turning 10 on 19 August 2010 and I want to celebrate his birthday on 21 August 2010 because his birthday is during the week. I want to take him and his friends to a park for a day. What can I do to make his party special? He likes the idea of going to the park.

Best idea. Just ask him what he thinks would be cool. I have a daughter who just turned 10. All the things I thought of were totally uncool and I probably would never have heard the end of it. 10 year olds seem to be that weird age where we as parents still see them as children, but they don't see themselves as young as we see them. They are ready to help make decisions about things that effect them in some way.

Kids love relay races and obstacle courses or scavenger hunts. I would also suggest watching Minute To Win It and playing some of their games. Let the kids have some time for free play on the playground equipment.

Be sure to have plenty to drink on hand if it's hot though.

Ten year old boys don't need a lot of organization. My sons liked rowdy things like water fights or organizing themselves into teams and playing commando. We lived on a farm, so they just did it themselves.

If your son and his friends are sports orientated, you could take along a soccer ball or softball equipment.

Get him involved in the planning-- see if he wants ice cream cake or cup cakes baked in ice cream cone cups or???? I always served hot dogs which we roasted over a fire, but you might have to do something different. Most parks don't have firepits, unless they are in the country.

If he wants something organized, I like the relay ideas that others have suggested. If he just wants to play with his friends, you really have far less to do!

I would suggest a water fight, though. That is what comes to mind for me -- water pistols and water balloons. You could give water pistols and pumps as the "goodie bag" item, and they could just have at it! ( Let the kids know they will be doing some active playing. Once one of our 'guests" wore his new white pants, and got a grass stain on it. He went off by himself and wept and wouldn't do anything else till the cake was served! Naturally, the guys have never forgotten it-- and they are in their 20's now!) Take along pails of water and pre-filled balloons. I think this might make you the coolest mom in the neighbourhood.
