Children love their video games, but there is nothing worse than having the child isolated in a room all day playing non-stop. Instead of shunning the world of video games, you can embrace it with a video game birthday party. At this birthday party you can provide social escapism through the celebration of games. There are plenty of ways to host these parties, even if you want to have it outside.
Video Game Party Trucks
One of the biggest trends in the party industry is the video game truck rental. Without any stress or location worry, a video game truck can pull right up to your house. Inside the truck is the ultimate party room filled with HD televisions, video game consoles and all of the latest titles.
These trucks also come equipped with extras like laser tag and inflatables and other outdoor games. Do a quick search online to find local trucks in your area.
If the video game truck is not within your budget, turn you living room into a TV takeover. Playing multi-player games is a lot more fun when it’s done in person. Bring every TV in the house into the living room to create the ultimate gaming experience. Other party guests can bring their games and consoles to have a non-stop gaming party.
The Worldwide Party
Celebrate the birthday all around the world using online gaming. Connect with friends and relatives that also have the game. Use talking headsets, to play games, sing “Happy Birthday” and celebrate with the loved ones who cannot be there in person.
Real Life Video Game
Turn your backyard into a real life video game obstacle course. For example, you can paint boxes to look like Mario bricks and hang them from tree branches. As children run past, they can bash the bricks, collect coins and have a lot of fun in the process.
Get creative with your child’s favorite game. For example, if they love Halo, then you can create some sort of alien NERF game to emulate Halo. This will help keep the children active but still embrace their love for video games.
Retro Gaming Marathon
Introduce your children and party guests to the history of gaming. A retro gaming marathon would feature a new era of games every single hour. For example, in the first hour you could play classic titles like Super Mario. Then move up to system games like Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. Through old consoles and digital game downloads, it’s really easy to cover every era of gaming.
Talk with your child and see what type of video game party ideas interest them to help you decide.
