Got a kid with a summertime birthday? Well, you're in luck! Not only can you hold that party outdoors, we've got a load of fun summer birthday party ideas for you. I mean, you could just do a cake and let the kids run around for the afternoon, and I wouldn't blame you a bit. But a themed party is extra special -- and your kids can get in on the planning, too. Here are seven birthday party themes that are especially fun for summer.
Arggh, it's ye pirate party! Serve fish fingers and goldfish crackers, and maybe a bright-blue punch. Hand every kid part of a pirate costume, like the hat or the head scarf or just the eye patch (plastic swords at your discretion -- could get crazy). And then send the kids off on a treasure hunt, a scavenger hunt for gold coin chocolates.
