10+ ideas for 9 years olds' birthday parties

Updated: Jan 27

9 years, although not an anniversary, is still a birthday that can be celebrated brightly, and loudly, with serious preliminary preparation. Yes, because all children's birthdays are an opportunity to arrange a special holiday for your beloved child. While they are still small, this day is truly magical for them and it's also great when each new birthday is not like the previous one.

With kids that age 9, they might prefer leading their team to victory in a laser tag tournament, playing paintball, scaling the side of a rock climbing wall, driving go-carts, or racing model cars and boats.

Below are the best ideas for celebrating a birthday just for a child of 9 years old

Nerf arenas

The game resembles paintball, but thanks to the use of special blasters it is absolutely safe. Instead of balls with paint - foam bullets are very light and do no harm on impact. The blasters themselves are specially designed for children from 6 years old, light and bright, they are devoid of sharp corners. The only condition is to wear safety glasses at the site.

Laser tag and quasar

Laser tag is an alternative to paintball and airsoft for those who do not want to get dirty in paint or walk around with bruises. The point of the game is to hit the enemy with "laser" shots. Special sensors mounted on the player's clothing, fix the infrared beam emitted by the "weapon" of the opponent or team members of the "enemy".

Laser tag is held both indoors with special shelters and obstacles, and in outdoor areas or recreation centers across the country.

Themed birthday parties

Themed birthday parties are a non-standard solution for a children's party. You can hold the event in a loft space: you rent a room that can be decorated in accordance with the chosen theme, invite animators and presenters, a photographer, and a DJ, and organize a festive table.

Event agencies provide a ready-made program with animators in thematic costumes, paraphernalia, decorations, and everything necessary to create a children's party in the desired style at your place.

Parks: Rides and boats

In the parks of the city, children's birthday parties can be organized on their own. Major parks offer special picnic areas with barbecues, tables, and benches, where you can order delicious food with delivery, as well as a large number of rides, children's and sports grounds, and even rope parks.

You can ride boats and catamarans, horses, bicycles, electric cars, and roller skates, as well as arrange a whole field party with animators, contests, and quests. Some parks have ready-made programs available for a birthday party for a child and his friends.

Virtual reality

The unusual format of children's festivals in virtual reality is unique game locations and a lot of different subjects and worlds for teleportation.

The voyage begins with virtual reality glasses and provides a full immersion in an exciting game of different genres, the exploration of the depths of the oceans, the mysteries of distant planets, and the secrets of the human body. Read more

Bumper ball

Bumper ball is a game in which inflatable balls are put on the players. Transparent balls allow you to see everything around, move around the field, bump into each other, roll, and turn upside down without risk of injury.

In the game it is allowed: to collide, push, and obstruct opponents, knock the opposing team off the field, and not allow them to return to it. Bumper ball can also be called soccer because you can play by the rules of soccer.

Drift and off-road racing on model cars

Ethno and Eco Parks

Ethno- and eco-parks that organize children's birthdays offer a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the ethnicity of other nations, spend time in nature and learn more about history and culture. Animators are available for fun events, and programs with quests, games, and excursions have been developed.

Quest rooms

A reality quest is a special adventure for a child where he or she becomes a character in the story (like in a movie, favorite book, or game). Children in a small group are in a real room (quest room): the interior and decorations create a certain atmosphere, and the thematic plot and fascinating tasks plunge them into the history from which children need to find a way out, including their ingenuity and logic.


The festive program in the parks is planned individually for each event, based on the available programs of the museums and taking into account the wishes, and creative activities of the birthday child, his age, and the time of year. The program of such a birthday party includes tours and art programs, as well as fascinating master classes.

Events held in a creative workshop format will diversify a child's birthday party. There is a huge selection of event formats and topics: master classes from chefs, creative programs to design aquariums or stylish t-shirts, bath bombs, pottery or cartoon shoots, and even soap making.

Master classes are usually held in the organizer's studio, but there are also retreats that can be booked on your own property - at home, in a loft, or museum.
