Making Your 10 Year Old Child’s Birthday Extra Special

We all want to make sure that our children have lots of fun and feel extra special on their birthday, after all it’s their day. So here’s a list of 5 ideas for ways you can make your son our daughter’s 10th birthday party extra special.

Also, don’t forget about loot bags and party bag fillers. Whatever party theme you choose for your child’s 10th birthday party, with All About Party Bags, you can create your own children’s party favours; so that they match the theme and activities of your child’s party, making the whole event feel much more special.

5 Ways To Make A 10th Birthday Party Extra Special

Your child only turns 10 once, so make their birthday feel extra special with one of these 5 ideas.

1. Organise A Special Day Out 

If you’re looking for something a bit more special than the typical birthday party for your child’s 10th, consider organising a fun day out instead. For example, if you child loves fish and animals that live under the sea, you could organise a visit to a local aquarium. In addition to being an opportunity to see many wonderful and beautiful creatures, it’s also a great chance learn about the creatures that live in the world’s oceans and seas, so if you’re searching for an event that could be both educational and fun, a trip to an aquarium could be a great choice.

If you like the idea of a trip to the aquarium, perhaps you could purchase some readymade party bags from our online store such as the Under the Sea Activity Party Bag, the Wooden Sealife Bif-Baf Bat Party Bag, or the Fun in the Sun Party Bag. 


2. A Sleepover Party 

This party is a fantastic choice for those searching for a low budget solution, with a sleepover party, your child and their friends can just relax and enjoy the day doing what they enjoy. For example, they might enjoy spending the day at home playing videogames. Before online multiplayer gaming became popular, many gamers would meet together for a LAN party. A LAN party was when people would meet in person to play videogames together over a Local Area Network. This style of gaming is still popular in some European countries, where friends will meet face to face, and enjoy some time with friends, playing a game together.

This is just one example of many activities that children can do together. Alternatively, they could enjoy some arts and crafts, they could do some baking, or they could do a series of fun science experiments together. 

3. A Trip To A Theme Park 

If your child and their friends love theme park rides such as roller coasters, pendulums, log flumes, or other rides. However, if you decide to take your child and some of their friends to a theme park for their 10 th birthday, it’s a good idea to invite an even number of guests so that everyone has somebody to sit next to one the rides.

Additionally, it’s also worthwhile to note that as theme parts are less enjoyable in cold and wet weather, it might not be a suitable choice for those celebrating their birthdays in winter months.

4. Juniors Paintballing 

In our blog about birthday parties for teens, we suggested going paintballing. However, paintballing can be a fun activity for younger children too. However, it is important that you make sure that the venue has specific events that cater for younger players. For example, some paintball venues have low impact paintballing activities where there’s significantly less impact (approximately 60% less).

An alternative to low impact paintballing could be a nerf party. These toy guns fire foam darts, discs, or foam balls and is often used as a ‘catch all’ term to describe this style of toy gun, regardless of whether or not the toy gun carries the Nerf brand name or if it is made by a different company.

5. Trampoline Party 

Activity parks containing wall-to-wall trampolines seem to be ‘popping up everywhere’. In addition to being lots of fun, it’s also a great way for them to unleash a lot of energy, as they’ll spend most of the time jumping, bouncing, and having fun on the trampolines.
