- Recreate the guest of honor's youth
Here’s a great party idea for a birthday boy or girl of any age who’s still a kid at heart. The idea’s pretty simple: when you’re planning the party, just plan it as if it were for a little kid instead.
Get themed decorations based on a popular kids’ TV show or line of toys, and get a custom-made cake to match. If you know of a theme party the birthday boy or girl really enjoyed when they were a kid, try to recreate that. Get pizza to eat, and soda pop to drink - remember, kids can’t have beer or wine!
Tell all the guests to bring toys as presents. If you know what toys were popular when the birthday boy or girl was young, those will work best, but today’s popular toys will work too—if they can figure out how the toys work!
Try to recreate popular party games from your childhoods. Some possible activities for the birthday party include hitting a pinata, going on a scavenger hunt, and playing pin the tail on the donkey. And of course, don’t forget to make goody bags for all the guests! This is a great alternative party idea that’s sure to bring out the inner child in everyone who attends.
