  • Are you artistic? Use a big piece of cardboard and 'draw', or paste, a transformer on it. Cut a 6: hole over the picture. Open the sides and one end of a box and paste the picture to them while the box stands on end. Make bean bags out of old jeans (Or get transformer material if you want to be 'cool'), and have a small prize for the boy who can lob the most beanbags into the hole from about 10 feet away.

  • I went to a 6 year old party and they had a petting zoo and face paint. It was so much fun. Here it's really nice in Decemeber so I don't know if that would work for you. Here we have buildings that have the blow ups in them where the kids can jump and climb alll over them. That seems like it would be alot of fun.

  • I gave my daughter a tea party indoor when she was 6. We had all the girls dress in frilly dresses and hats. They had a great time...

  • PIRATES - Eye patches,banadanas, chocolate gold coins and a treasure hunt, dig through the treasure chest for the money (just nickels, dimes, and quarters along with other cheap gifts), pin the parrot on the pirate, etc.

  • This one party my son went to was at this place where they got to paint a little clay car and it was terrific and tons of fun. Do something basic, 6 is a lttle early to be rally putting yourself out i think because what are you going to do for ten, rent a hall? lol
