Fun Birthday Party Ideas for Boys


Action and adventure--these are two things that interest boys of every age. When planning a birthday party for a boy, engage the honoree and his guests by basing the affair on a theme that incorporates both of these elements.


  • If the guest of honor enjoys the great outdoors, he will surely appreciate a camping-themed sleepover party. The ideal place to hold this party, of course, is outdoors. Ask guests to bring their sleeping bags and set up tents for them to sleep in. Gather camp chairs around a fire pit where the birthday boy and his friends can gather to roast marshmallows and tell ghost stories. Barbecue hamburgers and hot dogs, and serve corn-on-the-cob and baked beans. Have the boys play games of horseshoes and volleyball.


  • Throw a construction-themed party for a boy who likes building. Use decorations to turn the party area into a construction site. Hang yellow caution tape on the walls and wrap it around tables and chairs. Place orange cones around the room. Pictures of tools and construction vehicles can also be placed on the walls. Use toy tractors for table centerpieces. Construction workers typically bring their lunch to the work site in a lunchbox. Serve guests drink boxes, sandwiches, fruits, vegetables, and snacks in lunchboxes. Have boys use toy bricks in a race to see who can build the tallest tower in an allotted time period. Supply them with wood, nails, glue and paint so they can build any object they would like.

Outer Space

  • Throw an out-of-this-world birthday party for your boy and his friends. Set the stage by hanging glow-in-the-dark stars and planets--including the earth--on the ceiling and walls, which can be illuminated with a black light. Enlarge and print out images of astronauts and spaceships and hang them on the walls, as well. Serve moon pies, rock candy, pop rocks and other foods that resemble outer space elements. Play a game of Keep the Planet Afloat by tossing a balloon in the air. This requires kids to hit the balloon when it comes near them and ensure that it doesn't land on the ground.
