Here are a few different fun birthday theme ideas that you can consider with your kid: Backyard Carnival Everybody loves a carnival, and that’s doubly true for kids.

The Ultimate Game Spot A lot of parents take their kids to arcades for birthday parties. This can be fun, but it’s also full of other families, which makes it a little less special for the kid.

Put up a net and play volleyball or badminton, and consider getting a ping-pong table, if you don’t already have one.
