- 1 of 11
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!
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.
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!
