If your child is turning ten soon, you may be feeling at a bit of a loss regarding what to do for their birthday. After all, this can be an awkward age; they aren’t quite a teenager yet, but they are at the stage where the things they once loved are no longer cool. So, what is cool at ten? Read on to discover some great birthday party ideas for your soon-to-be ten-year-old.
Go to an event or visit an attraction – Your child is approaching the age where they may be more interested in exploring a new place. Instead of throwing a big birthday party, why not take a small group of your children’s friends out? You could go to a concert, or another type of attraction or event.
Paintballing – For any child that loves action, this is a birthday party that will be very well received. You may be worried that paintballing is too advanced and dangerous for children, but there is nothing to worry about. There are companies like Delta Force Paintballing that offer paintballing for children, and they cater to children’s parties specifically. They will ensure that all children have full body, head, and neck protection. Plus, they will implement the highest levels of health and safety, ensuring that it is all about having a fun and safe day.
Movie party – Everyone loves a good film, and this is something that can easily be done on a tight budget. Of course, you could go all out and take a group of children to the cinema. However, this is also the type of party you can host from your own home. All you need is a good movie that everyone will get excited about, and then complete the scene with banners, welcome signs, popcorn, film strips, bottle wrappers, tags, and movie themed invites.
Spa day – At this age, a lot of girls are starting to become curious about makeup and dressing up. You may have found them rummaging around your jewellery and makeup drawers once or twice. In which case, a spa day would be ideal. There are plenty of spas that will cater their offering to suit children, offering manicures and pedicures in pretty pinks and gorgeous patterns.
Sporting parties – Sporting parties are great because they are a lot of fun and they get everyone active. There are many different types of sporting parties you can host, from a football tournament, to ice skating, to bowling. You will find that most venues have party packages available, which come with food included, so you don’t need to worry about sorting that out yourself.
