I’ve been the mother of boys for three years now, and I’ll admit, it’s SO much different from raising girls. I’ve learned more about sword fighting, dinosaurs, pirates and dirt than I ever dreamed.
How about throwing a party for boys? Anything LOUD, with the option to climb or get dirty is sure to please your fellows.
Argh, matey! We LOVE pirates around these parts!
Get started with an amazing Pirate menu, with baby octopus and marine potatoes for your adventurous boys.
2. Cowboy Party
3. Firefighter Party
Imagine your son’s surprise if the fire department showed up for his birthday! Annette from One Perfect Room pulled that off for her sons’ party. (mental note to self – must start investigating that idea NOW for next year) Be sure and visit Crazy for Design and The Party Dress for more beautiful decor and menu ideas!
4. Bug Party
Little dinosaurs need food – don’t forget the meat eaters!
6. Cool Construction Parties
Every time we drive past a construction site, my guys ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’. A construction theme party like this one would be a big hit around here. I got a kick out of the ‘Build your Own Chex Mix’ — what a fun idea!
I loved this activity – hammering golf tees into a styrofoam block! This would keep my guys occupied for hours, and I know I’ve seen the blocks at the Dollar Tree! For more ways to make your party unique, check out Catch My Party.
I was amazed at the amount of superhero stuff I ran across while searching for boy birthday parties. Part of what I love so much is the BRIGHT, bold color schemes, like this one from Birds Party. A rainbow cake would be perfect with this party!
I’d love to try this activity at a party – but would have to keep a close eye on my little superheros. They are more Dennis the Menace than Iron Man.
8. Terrific Trains
I was lucky enough to attend an amazing train party when Rachel was small, hosted by my dear friend Andrea. We were in an old train depot! You can see some of the table decor here, with the kids’ names on the train cars for favors.
As a certified nerd, I squealed out loud when I saw these adorable parties!
Kim from the Celebration Shoppe created an over the top science party for her son, complete with science experiments! Anna got her husband to help out as the lead scientist, and Christine even has a video of her Diet Coke and Mentos Geyser!
Have a birthday in the summer, or live near a beach? This is a perfect idea for sunny days! Sara even shares her tips on creating the perfect frugal party! Hooray!
Many of these ideas could be modified for girls, or you can check out the best ideas I found for little girl’s birthday parties.
