By  | Last Updated:  

Are you looking for more boy birthday party ideas? We’ve got ‘em! My favorites this week include a couple of unusual ideas (angry birds at the beach (!) and a gingerbread house building) as well as more familiar, beloved themes like teddy bears, pirates, bugs and fire trucks. A bowling party, a campout or an army bootcamp theme might be just the thing for the athletic crowd. Harry Potter and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) snag the imagination of many a fan-boy.
