The birthday party of a child is an amazing occasion filled with fun and happiness. Every parent craves to celebrate their child birthday with their children and make the occasion memorable and unforgettable. Birthdays are not only for girls anymore; you also have birthday ideas for boys that they can join in for. Most parents struggle on what kind of birthday ideas for 11 year olds they should go with. There are so many choices, it’s difficult to pick the right one!
One of the best birthday party themes for a boy would be pirates. This theme will inspire a lot of birthday party games and activities. Let the kids dress as their favorite pirate and let them act out their favorite part of the pirate life. Use accessories like skull and crossbones banner and the skull and crossbones banner stems to make the theme more realistic and fun.
Another fun idea for a pirate birthday would be to make an island playground with slides and obstacles. The toys could include toy guns, treasure chests and barrels to challenge the kids. You can base the activity on the sea, the ocean or even outer space. Star Wars birthday ideas are also a popular choice for young fans of Star Wars. Decorations and lights, including some with the Death Star in the background, would add some drama to the birthday party.
Other birthday ideas for a kid that loves animals would include dressing up in costumes of animals. Use blue for a cat costume, pink for a bunny costume and orange for a tiger costume. If they are big fans of a cartoon, birthday themes for animals include dressing up in animal outfits and going to a birthday party of their favorite cartoon character.
Sports birthday themes for kids are great for any age as long as the child has interest in sports. You can have a birthday party on a field or court with basketball, tennis or soccer balls, birthday banners and trophies. Throw in a birthday cake made from a sports team’s logo and it will be a hit. You can also buy party supplies with the sports theme so you can put up items like soccer balls, bats, goal posts and colorful jerseys.
Adventure birthday themes are great for kids who love to do adventurous things. A birthday party in the jungle with torches and sleeping bags may sound a bit extreme but it is actually very fun. There are many adventure birthday ideas you can come up with to complete the party. You can base the activity on a jungle adventure movie such as Finding Nemo, Tarzan or Lord of the Rings. A stuffed monkey may work well if you don’t want too much activity.
Cartoon birthday themes are great for kids who love watching cartoon shows like Spongebob Squarepants, Winnie the Pooh or any other kid’s show. You can even get the birthday party decorations in the shape of a show character. It is a great way to encourage creativity at the birthday party. Decorate the room with everything from posters of the birthday boy or girl to hats and shirts with the motif of the show. Have the birthday child act out the birthday party theme to make it more fun.
For a girl’s birthday party you can think of the popular Disney princesses such as Cinderella, Belle and Snow White. If you have the budget you can take them to meet the princesses and take pictures at the birthday celebration. When it comes to boys’ birthday parties you can choose from a wide range of birthday themes to suit the boy’s interests. There is Captain Jack Sparrow for Pirates of the Caribbean, Superman, Super Boy and The Incredibles. If you want to surprise the birthday boy with something totally different consider getting him a kart, train or plane and have him race round the birthday party with the theme in his eyes.
