Birthday Themes for Boys

Birthdays are so much fun. I remember one year my parents took me go-cart racing with some of my closest friends. It meant so much to me that my parents organized such a fun event. I felt so loved. Birthday parties are all about coming together to show love and support and maybe eating a slice or two of some delicious ice cream cake. Whether you choose to throw a birthday party for your child every year or just on those special milestone ones, hosting a birthday bash can be a blast!

Although parties are a ton of fun, sometimes they can be difficult to put together. If you have a boy then you may feel like most of the birthday theme ideas out on the internet are for girls. Look no further! I have got you covered. Below you will find 20 fantastic birthday party ideas for boys. Any of these are sure to be a homerun!

  1. Some great links there. I did both a Jungle Safari (which I somehow never blogged!) and a Farm party last year for both of mr boys. Finding a good theme for boys can be a challenge.

  2. Wonderful round-up!! Boy parties are close to my heart as I have 2 boys of my own. Thank you so much for including my Sailing Party which was featured on Amy Atlas!!

  3. Hi Jamielyn,,
    Thank you so much for using two of my parties in your round up. What a great idea!
    Live Smile Celebrate

  4. Hey, Jamielyn! Thanks so much for the little feature. I love your site, and it’s always so nice to see people talking about my work. All the best, and happy summer!

  5. Thanks a bunch for the awesome party ideas! I have 3 boys ๐Ÿ™‚ so these ideas will most definitely come in handy. I think I might even plan a cowboy party for my twins ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!!!

  6. I just tried to pin this page & Pinterest gave me an error message saying the page was blocked b/c it had been reported as inappropriate material! What on earth? Are they kidding? More importantly why would someone report this??

    I just thought I should let you know in case there’s anything that can be done about it!

  7. THANK YOU so much for this amazing round up. As a person who only grew up with sisters, I have really struggled to “get” the whole boy thing, especially as my son gets older. I SO appreciate you putting this together. My son will soon be having a camping party of his own. Yipee!!

  8. We had a bird party last year for my youngest. This year he had a rainbow party, and my oldest had an outer space party. We’ve done dinosaurs for him as well. Boy parties can be super fun!

  9. Awesome thoughts. Thanks for putting this together, I think this is a great resource! Thanks!!! Like this so much!!

  10. I love masks. I notice that children also love them. Hence I teamed up with another dad and created a website that lets you create animal masks for your children. You can resize them and even set them to outline mode so your children can colour them in. Then you just print them on your home printer. It’s a bit of a side project and we would love you feedback on them if you get the chance. We’ve got a bunch of free masks on there so it wont cost you anything to try it out for us. http://maskmakerapp.com/en

  11. These are indeed awesome party ideas, but why have you separated them into ‘boys’ and ‘girls’?
    I have a 5 year old daughter who would love all but the military “boys” parties. ย Please don’t assume that girls don’t like superheroes or gardening or any of the others.

    1. Hi Lyn! I agree, these definitely could be interchangeable, we just separated them based on if they were used at a girl or boys birthday from the different blogs. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Whoa, I am so gonna do this! Thank you for sharing it. My boy’s bday is close so I am going to rush and prepare all the things I need for his party. I invite my family and close friends, hopefully everything is going well.

  13. We have a unique boys Birthday Party Place in Sydney called Big Blast http://www.bigblast.com.au We mainly do Kids Birthday Parties and also offer casual visits plus school holiday activities for kids ages 5-15

  14. ย I love Harry Potter Party from Toadโ€™s Treasures theme, ย next month is my son’s birthday. Thanks for the amazing list

  15. Definitely Love, love all the little touches, especially the treats ๐Ÿ˜€ Some great ideas for children parties!
    I have a question what did you use for the eyes, nose, buttons and mouth for Monster Bash?

  16. Wow! It was really an awesome collection of party ideas! Thanks. The boys are always changing their minds on what kind of birthday party they want. But one things for sure they love a themed birthday party.

  17. I love some of these ideas, especially the pirate cake pop medallions – they look unbelievably effective and scrumptious! I have two sons and can affirm that pirate themed parties are always a hit with the boys for their birthdays! We’ve actually had five pirate themed parties between the two of them, this is because one adores Peter Pan, while the older one is obsessed with the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Either way – I now consider myself as a pirate party planner pro! Though I might have to steal the medallion pop cake idea for another party!

    Anyway I was wondering if you had any tips/inspiration for planning girls parties? My sister is currently planning her daughter’s 6th birthday party,and has enlisted my help – so any tips for princess/fairy/wonderland types of parties would be fabulous.

  18. These are some great birthday party ideas. My son would totally love that Willy Wonka Themed party. I’ll have to talk to him to make sure, but for the most part, I’m sure he’d like a themed party.

  19. In these days where kids dont get enough outdoor activities

  20. Wow! It was really an awesome collection of party ideas! Thanks. The boys are always changing their minds on what kind of birthday party they want. But one things for sure they love a themed birthday party. I had great experience with https://www.planetjashn.com. They did extremely well.

  21. I like that you said that one of the keys to setting the right mood for a party is picking the right music. My best friend and I are looking to host a private event but we need to come up with ideas. Thank you for sharing this information with us, I’m going to look for someone that can help me take care of all the important things needed to host an event.
