The birthday of a child at any age should be special. To make it a success, you need to choose the right place, decide on the theme, pick up the best contests and games. From the material in this article, you will learn about the scenario options for a 7‑year-old boy’s birthday.
Choosing a place for the holiday
You can celebrate your child’s birthday not only at home. It can be done:
- in a cafe with an existing children’s area;
- in the play center with a playground;
- on a specially equipped playground;
- on the street (for example, in the adjacent territory of a private house or cottage).
In addition, depending on the place of residence, it is possible to organize a celebration of the birthday of a 7‑year-old boy in a special creative studio equipped with everything necessary for a thematic event.
When choosing one or another option, a number of nuances are taken into account, for example:
- the number of invited guests;
- the duration of the celebration;
- children’s interests and hobbies;
- time of day for the event;
- the budget allocated for the holiday;
- children’s ability to solve game tasks.
In addition, taking into account the age of the participants, the place is selected so that the children have free access to the table and the toilet room. Also, do not forget such a nuance as the possibilities of the playing space (its area, the possibility of organizing an event in a specific topic). The chosen option should be comfortable for all participants.
The atmosphere must be intriguing — the show program must be organized in full. If the selected options are not suitable, you can spend your son’s birthday at home. At the same time, it is desirable that there is enough space for everyone. If possible, you can celebrate in a special room for children’s quests.
As for the decision to choose the street as the venue, everything can be spoiled by bad ather. Also, this option is not suitable for celebrating the birthday of a child who was born in the cold season. Few of the guests want to hold a game program in the cold.
The theme of the birthday of a boy of 7 years old can be universal or extraordinary. Previously, parents invited clowns to such an event. Today, this trend is outdated, and besides, clowns do not cause good emotions for many children — on the contrary, they scare children.
Modern boys live in a world of cool cartoons and fantastic stories. This is what can be taken as the basis of the topic. For example, a birthday boy can become a superhero of his favorite cartoon: Spiderman or Superman, Alex the Lion from Madagascar.
You can take the story from “Pirates of the Caribbean”. Today there is not a single boy who does not know the famous pirate Jack Sparrow. This will allow you to play a show program in a marine style (for example, with a treasure hunt that will be shared by all participants at the end of the holiday).
You can think about holding a holiday in the style of space action. A child can become a space pirate — it is unlikely that a son will resist such a temptation.
If you choose or make creative costumes and paraphernalia (for example, luminous swords), the holiday will be remembered for a long time not only by the birthday man, but also by his guests.
Given the characteristics of the age of seven, the game program should not be too complicated and protracted. You need to choose a theme in such a way that active games are interspersed with relaxation. it perhaps in the theme of Halloen, the story of a superspy. You can guess riddles, ansr questions, clap, jump, run, play scenes.
Traditional option — indian theme. There are boys who like to play Indians. In that case, this is the best solution.
Hover, if there are girls among the invited guests, then you need to consider the option in which there is a suitable role for each participant.
Children of 7 years old are extremely sensitive to attention. According to the scenario, each role should be important. So the participants will be involved in the gameplay. If there are only boys among the participants, it will do heroic script. Depending on the chosen cartoon, the birthday boy can become Alyosha Popovich, Dobrynya Nikitich, Ilya Muromets.
The theme options are simpler: “Kid and Carlson”, “Prostokvashino”, “Barboskins”, “Fixies”. They are not for everyone, just like the Magic Walk theme. As for improvisation options, without a script, the holiday will not be so exciting. Among other topics, you can pay attention to the motives of “Harry Potter”, fantastic stories about Narnia. An original example is to play a holiday in the style of “Scooby-Doo”.
The choice of theme largely determines the direction of the game program. For example, if a theme is selected:
- Narnia — children will look for a magical lion who will help restore peace in the country of unusual creatures, captured by an evil sorceress;
- “Pirates of the Caribbean” — participants will search for the “Flying Dutchman” or treasures hidden by pirates many years ago;
- “Potterians” — you can take the motives of the first film as a basis, where the participants will have to find a secret room hidden by professors of the academy;
- “Madagascar” — the birthday boy and his friends will go to the coveted island, where exciting adventures await them;
- superman or spy — she can be beaten with various tasks, where guests will help the birthday man;
- “Barboskins” — you can play a story where Druzhok goes to another planet to play football with aliens.
In other words, the script of the holiday must have a core, the main plot that will develop throughout the holiday. You need to play the game after the treat. Then the children will not think about goodies and for some time they will be able to devote themselves to an exciting program.
Any boy will want to try on the image of an interesting character, neither he nor his guests will forget such a game. As much as possible, It is worth resolving the issue of costumes. You need to start with an unusual presentation of invitations. They can be presented personally or passed through parents.
Having decided on the main idea, it remains to choose contests and games. At the same time, they try to choose such options that will not take much time. This is because a child’s attention at the age of seven does not linger on something for long. If you ask something difficult, the participants of the holiday may lose interest in the whole game.
With contests and games
It is ideal to choose a scenario in which children will receive small gifts for each competition. They don’t have to be expensive at all. the main thing is the motivation for participation. Somewhere it can be a key to open a magic chest, a note with a hint, a magic item. These “presents” remain in the game or are collected as artifacts to progress to the final.
Games can be different: funny, fun, but better sports. Their type depends on the number of participants. If there are many children, you can divide them into 2 teams. Then you can pick up the games “bowling”, “relay”, “tug of war”, “kick the ball”, “who will make the mummy faster” and many others.
The main thing is to show imagination and beat them in the chosen topic.
Even a simple darts or jig can be a fun challenge on your way to finding a magic potion, especially if you play them as characters of Asterix, dressed in funny hats. You can arrange fights with balloons, throwing snowballs (“magic grenades”). Whichever side has more of them, they lose. If there are few children, you can play hide and seek.
Bowling will also be original, beaten in the theme of “Scooby-doo”. For example, you can throw into the “house” not with ordinary balls, but with silicone balls — “sausages”. The number of hits can become the number of hints in the game, where players will look for the ghost villain. You can wind “sausages” from long balloons: whoever has more of them gets a hint or a small present.
Competitions can be very diverse:
- for the most unusual costume prepared for the holiday;
- for the best player based on the results of several completed tasks;
- for the best riddle solver who collected more ansrs;
- on the number of victories in all tasks of the game program.
Complex and monotonous verses are not needed to explain the meaning of the tasks. At the age of 7, children will not appreciate them too much. Brevity and clarity of explanation are important.
Quests are ideal for themes with the general idea of finding gifts. At the same time, any chosen topic can be adjusted to the quest. At 7 years old, boys are very active, this should be taken as a basis. If it’s a famous cartoon or a computer game, they know what could be next.
The quest can take place outdoors or indoors. It starts with easy tasks (the second letter of the main character’s name, the color of his clothes, how old is the birthday man). You can start the game by finding a hidden object. The essence of the game is to complete the tasks indicated in the hidden clues.
When the holiday is spent at home, the tasks are placed in balloons and hidden in the room.
It is important to encourage children to find a specific place. Tasks can be designed in the form of riddles (but not too difficult, otherwise the children will lose interest).
When a room is rented to organize a holiday, the quest turns out to be as creative as possible (especially when choosing a professional studio and host). Task games can be extraordinary, for example:
- a game of mobile basketball, where participants need to score the ball into the baskets of two players of opposite teams (they run away from those who score the ball);
- relay race-crawling on the back without the help of hands, in which children are divided into 2 teams (if there are few of them, the one who crawled the fastest wins);
- jig in fins (the winning participant, who hit more than others, is given a hint for the next task);
- climbing through an inflatable ring without the help of hands (the winner in terms of speed receives an artifact or a key that opens a new door);
- wrestling with inflatable beaters, pillows, where you can connect adults to the game.
By the way, the same pillows can become the armor of heroes, which will make the game more fun. Swords of good fellows can be made from long balloons.
The theme of the balls is completely endless, for example, they make snowballs, which must be destroyed backwards in a short time.
You can put together a huge Puzzletrying to meet the given time. It will bring the team together. The puzzle is selected according to the theme chosen for the birthday party. So that the children are not too tired, the puzzle can be a portrait of a birthday person or an image of a hero of a chosen theme, a phrase indicating the place where the prize is hidden. This is going fast.
As an option, you can take note of another idea. The main point is to collect a magical album. This quest requires the presence of a mobile printer capable of taking photos directly from the camera. These will be artifacts — as evidence of completed tasks.
They buy an album for photos, during the quest they put pictures of completed tasks and the best moments that children like best. At the end of the game, children are given prizes for completing the game. And the birthday boy also has a memorable album from the holiday. Such a memory is incomparable to anything.
Professionals and parents themselves can conduct the quest. In this case, it is often not necessary to spend a lot of time memorizing the script. You can improvise here, especially if the adult facilitator is familiar with the topic. It is important not to go far from the topic and maintain children’s interest.
