  • Do you have a Wii? Invite all of his friends over for cheap take out pizza and some Wii. This ,of course, only works if you already have one.

  • Take him and one friend to one of those cheap pizza buffets and bring cup cakes. That's what we did and he and his friend got 35 tokens each! He was thrilled!

  • My daughter's 5th is coming in a few weeks, and we were out of ideas. My BFF (her godmother) is letting us throw it there (our apt is TINY) and we're going to do make your own english muffin pizza, pinata, and maybe 1-2 more activities.

  • Have him pick a couple of friends to make pizzas have cake and watch movies. Or have them camp out in your back yard or take them camping, that's an idea! Your not alone mama!!
