You can do a fun and games party.
Set up a volleyball net and let them play vollyeball and badmitten.
Relay races. Potato sack races, three legged races, etc. (you can even use old pillowcases for the sacks).
Get an inflatable kiddie pool and fill it with water, break them into 2 teams and have a tug of war, the losing team ends up in the pool!
You can also do shave the balloon, which is just that, blow up the balloons, put on the shaving cream and see who can do it the most gentle without breaking their balloon, whoever does wins, if all of their balloons break, they all lose! LOL
You can also do a pie eating contest, BUT instead of pie, fill the tins with whipped cream, the person to finish first wins!
There's another game where you stand in a circle and toss a ball around the circle, the object of the game is to keep the ball IN the air and NOT drop it. It doesn't matter what order they toss the ball in. Whoever drops the ball is out of the game and they keep going around and around until there's one person left standing, that's the winner!
You can also set up an ice cream bar. Get chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream and some toppings. Sprinkles, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, and marachino cherries and have them make their own sundaes. You can go to the dollar store for the plastic sundae dishes or the grocery store and get waffle cone bowls.
You can also get a pinata. All kids love candy and you can go to the party store and find one he likes and in the same aisle there's usually what's called pinata filler, which is just that, big bags of candy to fill them with. Just make sure BEFORE doing this, you take a sharpie marker and write the kids' names on the bags that they're going to be collecting their candy in, otherwise they WILL be arguing over whose bag is whose at the end of the party! When it comes to candy, there are arguments and this simple step of a sharpie marker to a ziplock bag saves all that stress!
For food, just go with his favorites. If it's bbq, do burgers and hot dogs with some toppings and sides. If it's pizza, send out for some pizzas, if it's tacos, set up a taco bar. Do the same with the snacks and drinks. Have water, soda, lemonade, and iced tea. Ask him what he would like for the foods and snacks being it's his birthday and his party, he should have his favorite foods and the things he loves.
I hope some of these ideas help and that your son has a great party no matter what he does and that he also has a very Happy Birthday!
