My oldest was turning 10 and wanted to celebrate with a Nerf War. His party turned out to be the best party I’ve ever thrown. Kids and Adults played and loved every second of it. Not only was this party so successful, but it was inexpensive. This is a perfect party theme for boys or girls of just about any age.
My friend Jen Anderson celebrated her son Dylan’s 8th birthday with a pirate-themed bash. Dylan celebrated his birthday with a pirate-themed event, which all his friends seemed to love. Everything was pirate themed, from the food to the games and activities. It was a well thought out party. I thought I just had to share some of these brilliant ideas with my readers in case any of your children are pirate enthusiasts like Dylan.
Although the party was amazing, it can be so difficult to know what to buy for an 8 year old, especially because they all seem to like different things. Thankfully, my friend was able to tell me about some websites that could help me out. She said that Coolest Gadgets has some great toys for 8 year old boys! Although he clearly loves pirates, he might enjoy some other toys too. Children seem to outgrow phases so quickly, he might not even like pirates next week!
He seemed to receive a lot of new toys and games for his birthday, I’m sure he’ll enjoy playing with them all after his party ends. Jen will probably be made to play some too! Overall, Dylan seemed to really enjoy his day and all his friends were kept entertained by the party games Jen had planned around pirates. If anyone else’s son, or daughter, loves pirates, this might be the next theme of their party. Don’t forget to buy a pirate cake too, that was one of the highlights for the children. Maybe you could take some of these part ideas and incorporate them into your own pirate party. >
