Boy's 10th Birthday Party Ideas

On July 2nd my son Evan will turning 10 years old! He has already opened his gifts from me, a new bike and Xbox 360 games. I wanted to be sure he got something he deserved! Money is super tight, but I knew he needed a bike so badly! I am blessed to have him. We are having a swimming party at my sister's July 6th from 11am-3pm. It's Texas; so it will be hot. There is a nice porch with chairs and tables.


As for the food, goodie bags, and something to make it special and fun. I am low on ideas and need advice! I was thinking a game, Mad Lib, and some kind of questioner about him (that he could keep for memories). For food I was thinking something simple fast and interactive. Like family personal pizza night where each member makes their own pizza, but having to put each one in the oven wouldn't work too well, timewise. There will be about 22 people. I want this birthday to be awesomely amazing and I need some ideas to manage it without spending too much.

If you have access to a grill, you could make burgers and franks and have different toppings. I am going to make piñata cupcakes for my granddaughters birthday.


Just google it and there are recipes. Some are from scratch. Im using a boxed mix and canned frosting.

Do a Scavenger Hunt! In your yard or neighborhood if it can be trusted. They are super fun - kids love them. I did one for 10 year old twins and the kids loved it.

Go to jungle jacks or crash crawlies or go to play lazer tag then hit up chuckie cheeses after followed by a movie at the theater

A treasure hunt is a fun activity. You make up clues that people have to solve, leading them to the second clue, third clue, etc. About 4 is usually good. You have two teams, and the kids work together in their team to find their teams treasure. The treasures can be the same. When I did this with school children (I had 4 teams) in grade 2 the treasures were little toys like whistles or a chocolate bar, and the first team to find their treasure got an extra prize of a balloon each (but you could just have them have the glory of being first!!


ha ha). You could make them have the treasure hunt to get their goodie bags, as far as that goes. I think if you do the swimming, and have lunch, and perhaps one other game (like a scavenger hunt or a treasure hunt), that will be plenty. Kids appreciate a party that is kind of laid back; it is a birthday party, not Disney World. Another activity that kids like is a water fight with water pistols. You could make the water pistols part of the goodie bags.

What did you decide to do and how did you save $$$? Post back with an update so future readers can get real live solutions!

It is so hard to keep costs down on kids parties so it is nice to see what others do!

Belated birthday greetings to your son!!
