Game day is a 10-year-old birthday party idea that transcends each level of a child’s dream. To make it happen, set up video games, board games, or laser tag tailored to your little one’s preferences. Maybe your child prefers several gaming options. If so, it’s time for a mashup of arts and crafts, Nerf gun fights, and board games.

After all that, they’ll be tired out and ready for bed by 7 p.m. at the end of the day. Perfect parental work after a good day of excitement. Take things to the next level by booking a local gaming paradise through Peerspace. After all, spending a day at a world-class arcade is better suited for a milestone birthday party than any at-home gaming setup. This party-perfect event space in Alexandria, VA provides an arcade game, a pinball machine, shuffleboard, a foosball table, a pool table, a fireplace, a kitchenette, and seating for 30 guests. Sounds pretty perfect to us!

5. Set up a scavenger hunt for your young explorer

A scavenger hunt is a unique opportunity to enthrall all the kids at the party. Create such a treasure hunt that takes the kids throughout the birthday party event venue, letting them explore different rooms as they search for hidden treasure.

Most parents know that it doesn’t have to be Halloween to dress up! Costume parties are a timeless and thrilling 10-year-old birthday party idea any time of year.

Start by choosing a theme and finding accessories and a venue to match it perfectly. One of our favorite options is this authentic European-style castle in Oregon City, OR. It is 14,000 square feet of spacious elegance and whimsy! Your 10-year-old and their friends can dress up and pretend they’re royalty, warriors, ghosts, and so much more — this castle can suit it all.

Why stop at just a costume when you can imagine scenarios and games to suit the theme? Set up games and makeup stations to elevate the dress-up environment and enhance the playtime fun. And accessories like inflatable toys and party shop costumes can turn a smart-looking soldier into a great warrior who rides upon their noble steed.

7. You’re never too old to enjoy a bouncy castle!

A different castle than our last idea and a throwback for many with this next 10-year-old birthday party idea. The bouncy castle is at the heart of most childhood memories, and for 10-year-olds, it may be the last year they get to enjoy such a childhood delight. And when you rely on Peerspace, the location of an inflatable bounce house does not need to be limited to your own backyard.

In fact, like our number one choice on this list, you can rent a Peerspace venue that already provides a bounce house! For our friends on the East Coast, you can book your 10-year-old’s birthday party in this spacious backyard in Hughesville, MD. The host provides a moon bounce house, pool access, grills, speakers, popcorn machines, and so much more. Talk about enjoying numerous 10-year-old birthday party ideas all in one sweet space!

Does your kid love water games outside the pool? Maybe they’re big fans of water gun fights? Maybe they’re the local water balloon champion? If so, all you need is some water games, a beautiful day, and the perfect outdoor venue rental to bring this 10-year-old birthday party to life.

For example, imagine setting up a Slip ‘n Slide at a venue like this outdoor green space in the heart of San Diego’s Pacific Beach. It is spacious enough for 150 guests, so a Slip ‘n Slide and water gun battle are certainly possible here. Plus, the host provides seating and built-in speakers and allows outside catering, so get creative and have a great time!

9. Let your 10-year-old show off their dance moves

Be it disco, house, techno, or pop, kids like to boogie. And let’s face it: so do we adults! A theme running throughout this list is the flexibility of location. Of course, a pool party would require a pool, but a disco party does not necessarily need to involve searching for your old 1980s roller skates.

If your kid loves to learn the latest TikTok dances and bust a move with their friends, throw them an epic dance party. It can happen in your own home, but we prefer safer, more spacious options, like this beautiful well-lit dance and yoga studio in Chamblee, GA! For an affordable rate, this venue provides you with plenty of space for your little dancers, as well as tables, chairs, and speakers.

If you’re not in the area, don’t fret. Peerspace offers you access to literally thousands of dance studio rentals in cities across the globe! No matter where you are, your little one will get to dance freely to whatever tunes they prefer while creating forever memories with their friends.

10. Take your 10-year-old camping (or glamping!)

Another one of the best 10-year-old birthday party ideas is to go camping. Or call it glamping if you’d prefer to retreat in luxury. Exploring the outdoors is perfect for a magical camping expedition the whole family can enjoy. Although you may be interrupted by a gaggle of screaming young ones, the surrounding trees and shrubbery will undoubtedly impart a sense of serenity to the partygoers.

You can even vary your location and choose a working ranch on four acres of land in the Shadow Hills of Los Angeles. Or, how about an urban home with a campfire backyard in the heart of Houston? Here, you’ll have the security of a fine house nearby to retreat to after a day outdoors. No matter where you’re located, you can find similarly awesome outdoor event venue rentals near you on Peerspace.

11. Unleash their creativity by putting on a play

If your 10-year-old is always doing something creative and loves to perform, consider having them put on a play for you and their guests. You can’t force creativity, of course, but if your kid has some ideas, supporting that can be a wonderful bonding experience. It will also be a great way for your kid to enjoy a positive creative outlet with their friends. All you have to do is find a place for the little performers and set up pizza and ice cream for a post-performance birthday treat.

And if your backyard doesn’t quite cut the mustard, no worries, Peerspace has you covered! We love the idea of hosting your little playwright’s performance at this creative performance space in Seattle, WA. It’s a 1,300-square-foot facility with a stage, seating, a speaker system, and colorful lighting that’s sure to delight any kid!

But don’t just take our word for it, check out this venue’s Peerspace reviews! Here is one example: “We really enjoyed this space! Clean, plenty of beautiful natural light, and spacious for our event. Olena was extremely helpful in chatting back and forth to get my rental figured out and answered all my questions. Will be booking again!”

12. Plan a DIY party for your little budding artist
