Top 5 Best Birthday Party Ideas!

Updated on September 27, 2011

#1. Baseball Game Birthday Party!

Go to a baseball game for the kid's birthday party. See your favorite team like the Detroit Tigers, Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees..... or maybe the Toledo Mud Hens, Modesto Nuts, Jupiter Hammerheads.

Yes, take the whole mess of kids out to the ballpark for tons of fun and lots of cotton candy, peanuts, and hot dogs. Let the kids bring their baseball gloves so they can catch foul balls (or home runs if your in that area). Call the ticket office at the smaller ballparks and you may be able to get a large group discount on the tickets! Heck, they may even bring the kids out onto the field just to show off the birthday goup!

Since 90% of the population lives within 30 minutes of a metropolitan city, this will give most folks the chance to see a professional baseball game. And that is why I'm giving the Baseball Birthday Party my #1 pick!


#2. Walt Disney World Birthday Party!

If you're filthy rich and can fly your birthday party troop down to Florida or maybe you live in the Orlando area..... a Walt Disney World Birthday Party may be the perfect idea. Goofy's Candy Company in Downtown Disney offers birthday parties in the $400 range for 12 guests. You can add 3 more guests at $25 per person.

You can choose from two themes: Goofy's Scien-Terrific Birthday Bash or the Perfectly Princess Party! The parties are held in Goofy's Candy Company party room in Downtown Disney's Marketplace. The parties last hour and a half and guest must be age 3 or older.

You can also book a fireworks cruise for either Epcot's Illuminations or the Magic Kingdom Wishes fireworks. If you are staying at the Disney Resort, contact the front desk and request a special birthday phone call for your child from a Disney Character.

"When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are......" My #2 Birthday Party pick.


#3. Giant Water Slide Birthday Party!

Kids love a Giant Water Slide Birthday Party.... how do I know? I threw a Wahii WaterSlide birthday party for my son last summer and the kids absolutely loved it!

There are many options when it comes to giant water slides. You can buy a huge inflatable water slide ($400-$800 dollars)..... or you could rent one ($250-$450 per day). If you do not have a hill at your home this will be your route.

If you do have a hill at your home the Wahii WaterSlide (for my money) is the way to go. The picture above shows the Wahii slide. The kids played, raced, and had a terrific time on it. We had a hard time getting them to come in for cake and ice cream.

My kids we were able to use the slide about 5 more times throughout the rest of the summer. Because of this.... I'm ranking the Giant Water Slide Birthday Party at #3!


#5. 3-D Movie Birthday Party!

Since 3-D movies are all the rage now... why not bring the kids to see a 3-D movie.  Avatar may still be in the theaters.  Don't worry if it isn't, the 3-D craze isn't likely to die down any time soon (Hollywood studios want a piece of the 3-D pie).  Here is a short list of 3-D movies for your birthday party for 2010 and beyond...

Alice in Wonderland, How to Train Your Dragon, Clash of the Titans, Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D (maybe not this one), Shrek Forever After, Toy Story 3, Last Airbender, Despicable Me, Cats & Dogs: the Revenge of Kitty Galore, Resident Evil (maybe not this one), Jackass 3D (no), Saw VII (if your kid likes blood), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Yogi Bear, Beauty and the Beast, Green Hornet, Kung Fu Panda: the Kaboom of Doom, Green Lantern, Cars 2, Smurfs 3D, Spy Kids 4, Puss in Boots, Happy Feet 2, Alvin and the Chipmunks 3D, Madagascar 3......

Because this list is so big, and because everyone loves 3-D.... I'm ranking the 3-D Movie Birthday Party at #4!


#4. Rabbit Hunting Birthday Party!

Ah, yes..... a good old fashioned rabbit hunt. A Rabbit Hunting Birthday Party would be a delight for the kids, especially those that can't wait for some rabbit stew before the birthday cake and ice cream!

Best to arm the kids with nothing stronger than a 410 shotgun. And don't let the kids wear any camo (you don't want any trigger happy kids thinking "Bobby looked like a rabbit"). Come to think of it, maybe this party isn't such a good idea...
