Did you hear about this new birthday party trend? Gel blasting is a cross between paintball and tag – perfect for active kids who love a good competition. Gel blasting is an activity that can be enjoyed by kids of all ages, making it a great option for parties with mixed age groups.
However, when using rifle gel blasters, it is important to closely supervise young children to avoid injury. But, don’t worry, safety gear is provided by every gel blasting operator.
In addition, most operators will come to your party location, making gel blasting a convenient option for busy parents.
Laser tag is another great activity for kids who love to run around and have fun. It is also a great option for mixed-age groups as there are usually different levels of difficulty to accommodate both younger and older children.
Many laser tag arenas also have arcade games, making it a great option for kids who need a break from the action. And, like gel blasting, most laser tag operators will come to your party location.
This can be a great option if you want to avoid the hassle of renting a space for your party.
A treasure hunt is a classic birthday party activity that can be customized to any age group. For younger children, hide small prizes around the house or yard.
For older kids, you could create a scavenger hunt with clues that lead them around the neighborhood. You could even hide prizes in different rooms for a multi-level treasure hunt.
Whatever you choose, kids are sure to have a blast searching for their birthday treasure. In addition, treasure hunts can be easily adapted to any party theme.
Who doesn’t love a good pinata? Pinatas are a great way to add some excitement to your child’s birthday party. And, they can be customized to fit any party theme.
You could even fill the pinata with small prizes or candy that match your party theme. For example, if you are having a pirate-themed party, you could fill the pinata with candy “gold” and small plastic swords.
The kids will love breaking open the pinata and searching for their prize.
Have a Sleepover
What kid doesn’t love a sleepover? A sleepover party is a perfect way to extend the birthday fun into the night.
And, there are lots of activities that can be done during a sleepover party. For example, you could have a movie night, make s’mores, or play party games.
If you want to go all out, you could even set up tents in the backyard and have a “camp-out” sleepover. This is a perfect idea for those warm summer birthdays. The possibilities are endless!
Have a Costume Party
A costume party is a great way to add some extra fun to your child’s birthday party. Kids love dressing up, so why not make it part of the festivities?
You could even have a themed costume party. For example, if you are having a princess-themed birthday party, all the kids could come dressed as their favorite princesses.
Or, if you are having a superhero-themed birthday party, the kids could come dressed as their favorite superheroes. From Superman to Elsa, the possibilities are endless.
Or a Pool Party
