Does your boy or girl have their 6th birthday coming up? How are you planning to celebrate the day? Where will you go, and what will you do? This post gives you a few ideas to enjoy their 6th birthday.
Outdoor birthday party ideas for 6-year-old’s
Book an entertainer
Magicians, princesses, face painters, and more. There are plenty of options for hiring kid entertainers. It’s a unique experience if your child hasn’t had this sort of theme for their birthday party, and tons of fun for their friends. Watch as the kids sit around mesmerized by all the action and smile as they participate in the activities.
Get the kids to grab a paintbrush and express their creativity on canvas! Kids love making a mess, and this idea is a great choice for outdoor parties. The little ones can get as messy as they want, and you don’t have to worry about the cleanup. Just make sure you get water-based environmentally-friendly paints.
6th birthday party ideas at home
Give your kids a cinematic experience with an outdoor movie theme for their party. Hire a projector and set up an outdoor screen in the yard. Decorate the area with movie-themed trinkets, and don’t forget the hot buttered popcorn and slushies!
All kids love to bounce around on inflatables and bounce houses. They’re affordable to rent and a great way to spread joy on the big day. Kids find bounce houses irresistible, and they’ll go down as one of the most legendary parties of the year! Bouncy castles come in various sizes and designs to suit any yard or party theme.

Stars Wars Playhouse
Your kid probably can’t get enough of baby Yoda and the Mandalorian. Give them a Star Wars-themed party for their birthday by hiring a custom-themed Star Wars play house. Have the kids dress up as their favorite character, turn the backyard into Yoda’s swamp, or decorate the lunge as the Mandalorian ship.
Take it outdoors and organize a backyard camping adventure for a party idea. Set up a few tents and decorate each one with a different theme. Turn your garden into a camping site by building a fire pit and let the kids roast marshmallows and make smores as the sun goes down. Don’t forget the campfire songs!
Adding to the campaign theme, you can always set up a big bonfire and burn an effigy for the kids. Give them a taste of Burning Man with a backyard bonfire that delights the mind as the sun fades away behind the horizon. Tell spooky stories around the fire and set up some blankets on the ground and a telescope for stargazing.
Birthday party ideas for 6-year-old girl
DIY Water Park
Tell the girls to bring their swimsuits and build a waterpark in the backyard if it’s hot outside. You don’t need a pricy trip to the water park. Set up a slip-n-slide and some inflatable pools to give everyone some fun. Add aquatic themes to the tables and add water-themed decorations.
Arts & Crafts
If your kiddo has a creative streak, an arts-and-crafts theme is a perfect idea for their party. Let the kids enjoy splashing some color on an easel and mini-canvas and purchase ready-to-paint wood frames, letters for their initials, or birdhouses.
Cake Decorating Party
Why have your cake and eat it when you can decorate it too? Set up a party table with sprinkles, icing, and candies, and let the kids go to town dressing up cakes and cupcakes. It’s a sugar-filled afternoon of fun. Cover the tables with disposable tablecloths, fold them up, and throw them out for a quick cleanup after the fun ends.
Party games for 6 year old’s indoors
If your kid has an academic side and enjoys shows like Bill Nye, why not throw them a science-based party this year? Get them a science experiment kit for a present and let the other kids gather around and participate in some fun experiments. They can grow crystals, drop a few Mentos in some diet coke, or use the classic baking soda and vinegar volcano for plenty of laughs.
All 6-year-olds love games. Set up the living room or den with Twister or red light/green light 123. Use other game ideas like 7-Up, shipwreck, and four corners to keep them busy during the afternoon. If it’s nice weather outdoors, let everyone join in a tug-of-war.
Unique birthday party themes for 6 year old’s
Bring your kids and their friends endless fun with a carnival party. Give the guests a chance to participate in fun activities like bobbing for apples, throwing horseshoes, or shooting water balloons. Have some affordable prizes on hand, and don’t forget the candy, cake, and soda for a sugar rush they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.
Kids love a “Pirates of the Caribbean” theme for a birthday party. Give them a makeup station for creating eye patches, scars, fake tattoos, beards, and some decorative party favors to dress up in for the afternoon. Organize a treasure hunt with maps and root beer for the beverages.
What kid doesn’t love a pizza party? Hire a pizza oven and let the kids build their custom pizza for the oven. Buy some premade bases, or whip up some dough the night before if you’re feeling creative. Lay out a table with all the toppings and let the kids go to town.
