Go Big! Eleven Year Old Birthday Party Themes
Your kid is now a tween!
Well there’s the pressure of having to plan it out but also giving them enough space to enjoy the
company of their friends during these times. During this age, they definitely would want to feel a bit
more grown up and would want to prove that to adults around them. Here’s where you show them a
little bit of responsibility. And of course, if you know you can trust your kids, now is the time to go big or
1. Bonfire Sleepover Party
You can do this in a park with permission or by the beach again with permission and under adult
supervision. There are several activities that can be programmed for kids in a bonfire sleepover party.
You can engage everybody in a design your own s’mores contest, followed by a stargazing activity, then
a ghost story session while grilling hotdogs in open flame by a pit. It’s undoubtedly an exciting idea, and
you can rent tents for this event as well as reward winners with badges. The kids party entertainment is
no sweat, and the party food is simple and effective.
2. Rainbow Party
Skittles, ponies, unicorns, these are what make up a brilliant and fun birthday party for girls at the age
of eleven. The thing about a rainbow party is that they can be both neon or pastels, it’s all up to you
how you want to adjust a bright or sweet party theme. It’s definitely going to be fun from the party
decorations, even until the food. If you’re creative enough, you can use chevron rainbow patterns from
your napkins, utensils and other details against a white background.
Making some colourful bath bombs is another creative idea to get the older kids involved!
3. Emoji Hashtag Party
It’s time to relive those current trends we see on social media and bring them to life! Allow your
guests to express themselves creatively using emojis and you can set up a photobooth for your
partygoers using hashtags.
4. Glow In The Dark Thingies
For a more grown up feel, you can have a Fly By Fun performer serve as a deejay and organize
this party in the basement! It’s a friendlier approach to having a house party but with better
5. Hogwarts Party
It’s time to practice those spells! There are absolutely so many ideas that can overflow with this
particular theme, starting with party favours in the form of magic wands (prepare an assortment
of wands and hold a spell contest), to the creative party food ideas. If you’re familiar with
Hogwarts, you can prepare quite a feast for your guests such as Butterbeer, Every Flavour Beans
and Chocolate Frogs. Now that’s what you call party food! Of course, the kids party decorations
can be an inspiration for many eleven year olds. You can search for scarves in each of the
Hogwarts houses and display brooms all over the party venue. You also don’t need to sweat for
entertainment. It’s a fitting Hogwarts Party and your guests will be surely surprised to see none
other than Albus Dumbledore himself to be receiving his students by the door. You can give Fly
By Fun a ring and inquire as to their top-notch entertainers to complete your magic. This age is
when the wizards and witches receive their letters of admissions to Hogwarts and this can be
your invitation idea.
Here’s a quick reminder for organizing birthday parties for tweens: everything does not have to be
perfect. It’s important as parents and organizers to also have fun and enjoy these moments. Keep a
camera nearby and take photos of these priceless moments. Also, it pays to be practical. If you admit to
yourself that you need help especially in the entertainment aspect, give Fly By Fun a ring and that issue
will be taken care of. Have fun!
