Planning a Ten Year Old Birthday Party

Written by dad - 3 Comments

Our oldest son is turning 10 years old in just over a week. Given that he’s getting a bit older, we’ve decided that we’re not going to do a full-on birthday party with a ton of guests. Rather, we’re letting him invite a few kids over to spend the night. Actually, he’s inviting three boys over for the night, as well as a two other friends (who happen to be girls) for just the evening.

While we still haven’t hammered out all of the details, we’re planning on pizza and movies. He wants the evening to have a spy theme, so we’ll be working that in. My lovely and talented wife created Top Secret, “Mission: Impossible”-styled invitations, complete with the “Your mission, if you choose to accept it…” greeting, and the “This message will self-destruct…” warning at the end. We were originally thinking about putting together a spy-themed scavenger hunt of some sort, but will instead keep things simple by using spy-themed movies to give the evening its flavor.

As a sidenote, this will be our first time hosting a sleepover… Wish us luck — we probably have a lot more in our future.

  1. The spy-theme sounds fun. I hope those kids enjoy the sleepover.

  2. Good luck on hosting a spy-theme sleepover. I’m sure my kids would also love this idea.

  3. We have four little ones, my eldest is going to be nine on Sunday. He has a five year old brother, and we also have twin girls that are 3.
    Last year, we had our first sleepover… I think it was the LEAST stressful and smoothest birthday party we’ve had to date!
