  • It will all be OK. Kids will have fun no matter what you plan. If it were me, I would make up inside game stations. Boys are physical. Like bean bag toss, water balloon toss, musical chairs, a t-shirt signing station ( for the birthday boy wearing the shirt) ... I have alot of other ideas. What kind of space do you have reserved ? How big is it ?

  • My son always likes to have a Pinata filled with candy and toys.... put up! Last year we had a "Transformers" theme and had a BIG Optimus Prime Pinata for him! -Just spin the kids around 3 times and let them take a swing -- it's always lots of fun! And have gift bags ready for the kids to take home some of the candy and trinket toys!!
    It is always a good time for the kids at my son's parties!
    Also .... you could go on Google and type in FUN kid's Party Ideas - maybe you'll find something else you'd like! :o)
    P S ....I'll give ya' a bump!! Good Luck!
