10th Birthday Party Ideas

    Do you have a special little one in your life that’s turning 10 soon? Now that he or she is reaching double digits, it's time to rev up the celebration! If you’re looking for awesome birthday party ideas, check out these unique 10th birthday party ideas for a little inspiration.

    Water Gun Fight Party

    This is a great 10th birthday party idea for boys or girls! Ask guests to bring their own water guns to cut down on the party expenses. Also, consider renting out a shaded pavilion at a local park or rent an event venue with plenty of outdoor space for kids to run around. Order pizza take-out for the food and buy some inexpensive water pistols at Target or WalMart for the party favors.

    Indoor Rock Climbing Party

    This is a great party idea for boys or girls, but also works for teens and even adults! Check out your local indoor rock climbing gyms to see which one is the best price. Many will have party package deals or will let you bring in your own food, which will help with budgeting for a larger party. For party favors, give the kids some survivalist hiking gear, like wilderness survival rope bracelets.

    Drive-In Movie Night

    For this 10th birthday party idea, you could host a Drive-In Movie night at your very own event space! All you need is a large projector screen to turn an outdoor area into a theater. At the beginning of the party, have the kids make their “cars” out of appliance boxes, markers and duct tape. The kids will then have a fun seat to enjoy the movie screening! At the end of the night, the kids can either take their cars home or you could have a demolition derby to breakdown all the cardboard cars!

    Surprise Party

    Imagine the look on your 10 year-old's face when you shock him or her with a surprise birthday party! Just play it cool and tell them they can have a few friends over but nothing huge. Then, make it huge! Invite the neighborhood and all their friends to help surprise the birthday girl or boy. Make sure you have a camera ready to capture the big moment.

    Scavenger Hunt Party

    This is one of the most fun and interactive 10th birthday party ideas. Make the majority of your party based around a large scavenger hunt to keep all the kids entertained all night long. All you need to do is set up the scavenger hunt beforehand and come up with some cool prizes for the winners. You could even ask your neighbors to participate so that the birthday gang can search for things in your neighbors' backyards.

    Backyard Camping Party

    This 10th birthday party idea works well for both boys and girls. Depending on how many kids you’re planning on inviting, you may want to consider renting an event space with a large outdoor area for backyard camping. Tell everyone to bring their own camping gear, buy some s’mores ingredients and hot dogs, and you’ve got yourself a backyard camping party!
