Birthday Party Theme Ideas for Kids 9 and Up

Soccer Party

This is a good outdoor party for soccer fans. It can be held in a backyard or a local park. Be sure to invite enough people for team play, and note on the invitation that there will be a party soccer game so that guests will dress accordingly.

Game: Have both a traditional soccer game and a set of soccer relay races. Be sure to have enough adults on hand to supervise. Give out prizes for a range of accomplishments from best dribbler to fastest time on the obstacle course.

Party favor: Soccer-theme school supplies.
