Birthday parties are a lot more fun if you plan them on a popular theme. Planning a themed birthday party for a boy is easy, since there are so many themes that most boys like. Your son and his friends will certainly enjoy one of these great birthday party theme ideas.
Circus Birthday Party Theme Ideas for Boys
To get started planning a circus-themed birthday party for boys, get some circus-themed birthday party invitations. If you prefer, you could also use clip art to create your own circus-themed birthday invitations. Get some red and white striped popcorn bags to use as party favor bags. Fill them with circus-themed party favors such as whistles, clown noses, animal stickers, yo-yos, funny glasses and circus peanut candies. Print out these circus tickets on your home printer and cut them out to hand out to all your party guests.
Get a circus themed cake with big top, carousel, circus ring leader, clown or circus animal decorations. Set up carnival games such as a bean bag toss, a bowling game, a cake walk, a magnetic fishing game and a can knock down game. Have small inexpensive party favors such as toy circus animals ready to give out to the boys who win the games.
Jungle Birthday Party Theme Ideas for Boys
To plan a jungle-themed birthday party for boys, find some jungle-themed invitations with pictures of jungle animals such as zebras, monkeys, lions, elephants or giraffes. Also decorate your jungle birthday party with pictures of these jungle animals and of jungle leaves such as banana and palm leaves. Decorate the birthday party cake with palm trees, bananas and jungle animals. Play a game of jungle animal charades or “Pin the Tail on the Monkey” or have a jungle scavenger hunt. Give away party favors such as small jungle animal toys, safari binoculars, butterfly nets and animal crackers.
Pirate Birthday Party Theme Ideas for Boys
Another great idea is a pirate-themed birthday party. Send out invitations with a pirate, a treasure map or a black pirate flag with a skull and crossbones on the front. You can also purchase kits to send your pirate-themed birthday party invitations as a message in a bottle.
Decorate your home like the inside of a pirate ship with black pirate flags, pirate-themed balloons and a treasure chest. Get paper plates, paper cups, napkins and plastic flatware in colors of red, black and white and with pirate-themed designs. For party favors, provide pirate eye patches, toy swords, toy parrots, whistles, pirate stickers, miniature toy telescopes and chocolate coins wrapped in gold foil. If you decide to use a treasure chest, place the party favors in bags inside and allow the boys to retrieve the favor bags themselves.
