I am having a boys only birthday party for my ten year old son tomorrow and I have no idea what we are doing. We are having tacos for lunch and a giant cookie for dessert. I guess I just need game or activity ideas. Thanks for the help.

  • Pinata! Especially if you are having tacos. How about a flag football game if the weather is nice?

  • Why not have a scavenger hunt in the yard? Go to a party store and buy little toys and gifts and hide them in the yard.

  • They are a bit old for musical chairs and even a pinata. The first kid will break it. How about divide them into teams and play baseball? Or basketball, do you have a hoop? Flag football is good. Relay races could work. Maybe carry each other on their backs, hop on one foot. Boys that age are competitive. Give candy to the winning team.

  • DS is 10 and the kids LOVED playing musical chairs at his party. You shouldve seen those kids fighting over those chairs! We had prizes like movie passes,mcdonalds gift cards,etc. It was awsome.

  • Football, baseball, kickball. Something they can do outside and run off some energy.

  • If you have a lot of item around why not have them build an obstacle course. Tires, rope, anything with long handles, stuff to run over, around, and under.
