Children in this age group are comfortable with rules, taking turns, and playing games, so Physical Activity parties such as a Bowling Party, Martial Arts Party, Gymnastics Party are perfect for this age.

Entertainment for age

Make sure to have all the phone numbers of the guests’ parents.
Glow in the Dark Party
The ‘dark’ is really key in this party! The room must be dark, but still well lit enough that it will be safe for guests to roam around.
There was a time when people would make fun of raves and the people that would throw around glow sticks. Well the truth is, it is a real talent and the light show that you get is spectacular, like fireworks without the loud boom. Hire a talented raver and have them perform for the guests. If you can, ask him to teach the guests a few tricks so that they can really get a spectacular light show going.
Music is always a great addition to this party theme so a DJ would be a great complement.
Until someone invents glow in the dark food, we will have to settle for a more traditional approach to this party’s menu, but you can accent your food by using glow in the dark or neon Tableware; that will look as if it were glowing when under a black light. Also, choose foods that are white and they will look glowing under the black light . Deviled eggs, white pizza, vanilla ice cream are just a few examples.
Games and Activities
Glow in the dark treasure hunt any one? A treasure hunt is fun no matter what, but when all the clues are written in secret ink that can only be seen with a black light, that just makes it more exciting! Have your party guests chase down the Glow In The Dark Bouncing Balls scattered throughout the room. How may can they catch before they bounce away? Use them in a game or give them away as favors.
Or how about paint ball. There are many paintball locations that have the glow in the dark option. This is a great addition to the party and it will keep kids busy and entertained for a long time!
Black lights are almost crucial in this party to make that glowing effect. If you don’t use black lights then hang a lot of colorful Glow Sticks light up balloons around the room. Have your guests wear white t-shirts so that the white will glow under the lighting. Glow In The Dark Stars or shapes are also great for this party, just make sure you turn the lights on for a long time right before the party starts so that the fluorescence lasts longer.
Give out glow in the dark items to guests such as glow sticks, glow in the dark stars,
