The 10 Best Summer Birthday Party Ideas for Kids

Throw the most awesome summer bash with these creative birthday party ideas.



Paint the Town Neon


Color runs are all the rage right now, so why not bring that fun to a birthday extravaganza? Make your own DIY colored powder, fill a bag for each kid to throw around, and let the wild rumpus start!



Bonfire Birthday


Get the s’mores and hot dogs ready! A bonfire party is a great way to spend quality time outdoors with friends and family and is an excellent option for older kids. And you can turn it into a backyard campout so the fun doesn’t stop till morning!



Surf’s Up, Dude!


Grab your swimsuit and grass skirt and get ready to hula with a luau-themed birthday party. This would be great at a pool or in a backyard with fun water games. Finish off the theme with a “Tropical Island Birthday Cake.” Aloha!


Don’t forget the decorations! Try leis for your guests or these pineapple string lights.



We All Scream for Ice Cream


Beat the heat with an ice cream party. Set up a cute ice cream bar with all the favorites, and don’t forget the party favors!


Movie Under the Stars


Enjoy a night under the stars with a backyard movie party. This idea is pocket-friendly, and with a few sheets, blankets and treats, you can turn your space into a magical celebratory evening.


Shaving Cream Bonanza


Step up your water games a notch by replacing everything with shaving cream. Have a shaving cream balloon fight, make cream hats, and set up a finger painting station with dyed shaving cream. The options are endless, and messy, but that’s the best part about being a kid.



Come One, Come All!


Step right up, boys and girls! An outdoor carnival birthday is the perfect summer shindig. Play the fun DIY games at the booths, take a few swings at the pinata, and don’t forget the popcorn and cotton candy machines!



It’s a Mud, Mud, Mud, Mud World


It seems that all kids love to play in the mud and get their hands dirty—especially the boys! So, bring that muddy fun to a whole new level with a mud run birthday party. Find an open space with lots of dirt and trees, set up various obstacles, and let your little racers run. Continue the mud theme with a Bulldozer or Monster Truck Birthday Cake.



Chocolate Slip N’ Slide


Forget about a regular ole’ slip n’ slide! Replace the water with chocolate and whipped cream. This will surely be a favorite birthday party to remember forever!



The Great Outdoors


Get outside and use our beautiful Earth as the backdrop for a birthday adventure. Have the children make their own treasure boxes, which include a map and a compass. Take them on a nature walk to explore and collect interesting rocks, flowers, leaves and sticks. And don’t forget this adventurer’s themed birthday cake!
