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. They are also developing coordination skills and will be excited to put them to use in games geared towards these skills.
Invite schoolmates and friends. Just remember that some children at this age prefer to only have children of their own sex at their parties so don’t be alarmed if this is the case.
Length of party
1 1/2 - 2 hours
Entertainment for age
At this age, entertainment that involves hands-on activities such as baking/decorating cakes, sand art, or painting are great. Kids feel a sense of accomplishment, especially when they are at a phase in life where they begin to develop and perfect specific individual skills.
Safety for age
Make sure to have all the phone numbers of the guests’ parents.
Wild West/ Cowboy Party
Birthday Child’s Starring Role
Tumbleweeds don’t need to blow across your front lawn to give your home the feel of the wild, wild West. Make mini hay stacks out of cornbread squares and stack them on your food table instead; they’ll be great with the beans!
Send out these themed invitations to let guests know a new Birthday Sheriff is in Town. Ask your guests to come dressed in jeans and hand them out badges or these personalized stickers, they’ll be ready for a rodeo.
Party Fun & Games
The West has no boundaries, so offer a wide variety of adventures--everything from pony rides (if you have the space and a willing horse) to bean bag tosses. Pile a few empty soda cans and have kits use their best aim to knock them all down from a distance.
Invite a cowboy to play the guitar and sing some country and campfire songs.
Break out your favorite collections of country and western hits to get your cowboys’ knees slapping and feet stomping. If they are a fan of Hannah Montana, make sure to teach them the hoedown throwdown that they can all perform at the end of the party.
It would not be The Wild West without meat! Pile on the chicken, beef, hot dogs and hamburgers. Set out all the fixings and don’t forget the potato salad and baked beans.
Birthday Presents & Favors
No respectable bunch of ranchers should run around without bandanas and hats. Hand ‘em out as party guests arrive and let them wear them out the door at the end of the party.
This favor kit has all the above plus more.
