I’m currently planning together my son’s 2nd birthday party, coming up in July. There are so many great options – summer is a wonderful time to have a birthday. Just set everything up outside and let the kids go wild. I’ve put together a list of 10 great summer birthday parties for boys that are sure to inspire you to create an awesome backyard bash.

1. Bug Hunt Party – What boy doesn’t like bugs? The kids can search and dig for toy bugs or real bugs outside, and then feast on some icky insect-inspired treats – after washing their hands of course!

2. Camping Party – Have your camping party at a local park to make use of their picnic tables and other outdoor amenities.

3. Construction Party – Have a sand box and some bulldozers? Add some caution tape and cones, and you’re on your way to a construction party that the kids will totally dig!

4. Detective Party – Little sleuths will love looking for clues and solving the mystery!

5. Fishing Party – You don’t actually have to go fishing to have a fun fishing party. Tacklebox full of treats – need I say more?

6. Fossil Party – Another party that involves digging. You really can’t go wrong with dirt, and adding some dinosaur fossils makes it even better!

7. Mad Scientist Party – Messy science experiments are a perfect outdoor activity, and kids will go crazy over treats served in test tubes and petri dishes.

8. Messy Party – No need to commit to one activity – do it all! Slime, mud, shaving cream, paint, water, etc. Just make sure to ask parents to bring a change of clothes – for the kids and maybe for themselves too!

9. Mud Run Party – Set up a fun obstacle course with mud and water, and then give the kids medals and food. Everyone wins!

10. Surf’s Up Party – You don’t have to live near the ocean to have an awesome beach party!

When I'm not writing, I'm cleaning up after my three very messy boys, ages 8, 5, and 2, and my 1 year old girl. If I had to describe myself in just one sentence: Slightly crunchy, a little crazy and always exhausted.
