If you have big lawn to your house or in a venue which you have booked for the party then plan some good outdoor games. Kids love playing games which involve them more into physical activities but you must know which games they really like.

For the party you can have some racing games, water games, treasure hunt games, etc.. Make the most with the big space and let the kids go gaga over these kinds of games.

Camp celebrations

What about birthday party in a camp? Don’t you think its exciting and when i talk about young kids, they will just love it. You can plan a birthday party in river side camping or may be in valleys. If both of these kind of places are not close to your living area then you can also plan the party in lawn or any picnic place where you can have big ground.

I use to see a show called “small wonder” and in one of the episode, the kids were having the birthday party in the jungles. If you have seen the show then you might have also got which episode i am talking about. Anyways that episode made me inspired to give it as an idea to you all.

How about taking kids to the best places of the city? I am sure they will love to explore new places around your city. Kids loves exploring new places and try out things, so i am sure they will love to travel around.

You can book a mini bus, if possible go for open ruff top that would be really awesome. Arrange some snacks and drinks in the bus so that they can enjoy while traveling also. Plan few places where you think the kids will love to go.

Sleepover fun

When i was a kid i use to love sleepover parties that i hardly had because my parents were strict on sleepover parties. But i remember few times when i had it, how amazing it was to play games all over night, watch TV and talk with friends for hours. I really can’t express in words.

I am sure kids of new generation would also love to have a sleepover party, where they can have some memorable moments like i do.


Tween gaming party

These days kids are more interested in indoor games, no wait a minute i am not taking about games likes snakes and ladders, but i am talking about virtual games they love play in PlayStation and Xbox.

So for one day let them be free and enjoy the day playing their most favorite games. Make a list of common games the guests would love to play and arrange them for the birthday party.

Tween drama game

Let them be on creative side and have some acting in the house. It is a very simple game not even game, i would love to call it as an activity. In this activity you can divide the guests into teams and give each team a stuff. It can be anything, a shoe, cap, ball, etc..

So each team will get different stuff. Now let them improvise and build up a story centered around that stuff. Give them some time to prepare it and after that let each team come on the stage and act.

Gizmo games and theme


If they like gadget games then why not. Arrange some gizmos for them. I have seen that young kids love remote control racing cars and fighting gizmos. So if you can arrange these stuff for them, then i think they will go crazy.

Many of you might not be able to get those gizmos so here is another deal for you. Let the theme be inspired from gizmos and robots. From costume to decorations you can find stuff inspired form the robots and futurist gizmos. These kind of games and themes are perfect specially for tween boys.

These were few tween birthday party ideas that i found to be good to share with you. So which one you want to have in your list of plans.
