11th Birthday Ideas for Boys
Whether this is your first time throwing a party or the 11th, deciding what to do can be hard. But we have 10 ideas for themes, food, gifts, and more.
1. Mad Scientist
Turn your son’s birthday into a weird, wacky, and somewhat educational experience. From lab coats to lab rat chocolates, to a group experiment, to hilarious goody bags, everyone in attendance will have an epic time.
2. Visit the Arcade
Visiting the arcade makes for a bucket load of fun! The kids can play dozens of games, at a reasonable price, before enjoying some food and slushies in the diner. Give each kid a budget, and let them go wild as they compete against each other to win prizes.
3. Backyard BBQ
If your son is a fan of barbecue food, throw him a backyard bash with his friends. He’ll feel like a real grown-up! You can grill meat, veggie burgers, and fish. Lay out a delicious platter of burger and hot dog toppings, chips, and of course, refreshing beverages.
4. Water Party
A water party is a total splash in the summer! From crazy sprinklers to slip and slides, kids will be thrilled by this party idea. Finish with a water balloon fight followed by delicious ice cream and tasty nibbles.
5. Ninja Warrior
This unique idea will delight boys who love obstacle courses, ninjas, and yummy snacks. Get your son and his friends together, dress everyone in ninja outfits, and introduce them to a handmade obstacle course inside or outside the house.
6. Party in the Park
Eleven-year-olds might have outgrown regular playgrounds. But if you can find a bigger-scale playground with lots of activities, slides, and climbing frames, your son and his buddies will love it! Pack a picnic for everyone to enjoy between running wild.
7. Junior Chef Party
Is your son a foodie? Why not take him to a cooking class with a few friends? You could even host it at home if you can teach them a simple but delicious meal to share together.
This will take care of food but also teach the kids something new. Plus, we’re sure there will be lots of laughs and silliness along the way!
If you’re looking to get your son an unforgettable gift, consider a Nintendo Switch. This handheld console is excellent for solo play and multiplayer games. Plus, you can turn it into a birthday party idea by inviting his friends over to play some new games.
9. Slime Kit
Slime is a super fun 11th birthday gift idea. A slime kit usually comes with various colors, textures, and features, like glowing in the dark. You can also use this as a party game — kids can work together to create something out of the slime.
10. Lego Set
What better gift for a young boy than a Lego set? They’re now capable of more complicated kits, like this fish tank idea. You can also turn this into a group activity by letting your son build a set with his best friends.
11th Birthday Ideas for Girls
How will you celebrate your daughter’s 11th birthday? We first recommend asking her what she would like to do, but if she can’t decide, read this list together and see if anything calls to her.
11. Painting Party
This cool idea doesn’t get old for the artsy gals. Decorate with colorful balloons, banners, and food. Lay out a canvas and paint for each guest, and challenge them to paint something. They can choose anything they want, or you can make a still-life centerpiece for them to copy.
12. Mall Scavenger Hunt
Does your daughter love going to the mall? Turn this destination into a fantastic party with a scavenger hunt. Divide her and her friends into two or three teams and give them a list of things they need to find. This could include getting photos of one of the team members wearing high heels, on an escalator, or testing a celebrity’s perfume. Once the game is complete, enjoy some grub in the food court!
13. Decades Party
Ask your daughter which decade she would like to time-travel back to! Any 20th-century decade will make for a great party. Decorate with the appropriate motifs, make some retro food, and play some simple games, while guests dress up in old clothes!
This is the prime age for sleepover parties. The kids are less reliant on adults — so you can actually get some sleep — and they can entertain themselves. All you need to do is set up a sleeping area, be in charge of food, and make sure everyone is safe and happy. The girls might watch movies, play games, or just talk all night!
15. Adventure Playground
Girls with a daring streak will love this party idea. Take your daughter and her friends to an adventure playground or high ropes course, and let them live amongst the trees for the afternoon!
16. Garden Party
It’s like an outdoor picnic but a little more classy. Set up an outdoor table with cushions, beautiful balloons, and gorgeous cakes for your daughter and her friends to enjoy. If the weather stays nice, they can play games outside or just chill, enjoying each other’s company.
17. Baking Party
Make a cake together, or make them in advance and let the girls decorate them. This makes for a nice group activity, takes care of the party food, or provides a lovely goody bag idea since they can take their creations home.
18. Quiz Art
Eleven-year-olds are getting to know themselves well. With this kit, girls can answer the questions asked about themselves, choose the corresponding thread, and make a unique design. If she wants to do it with friends, get her the Quiz Bracelets instead.
19. Polaroid Camera
Young girls will go wild for this gift! This Polaroid camera allows them to take their own photos and print them out immediately. For her next birthday, Christmas, and other holidays you celebrate, you can gift her more film each time.
20. Glow in the Dark Blanket
While she might have outgrown her baby blanket, that doesn’t mean she won’t want a cozy comforter through the night. But go the extra mile by choosing a glow-in-the-dark blanket that stands out from the crowd, is reassuring at night, and looks super cute during the day.
Party Games for an 11-Year-Old’s Birthday
At this age, birthday parties might run themselves, as the kids will likely create their own entertainment. But it’s still important to have a few ideas up your sleeve in case the party lulls. Here are 10 fun games to play at an 11-year-old’s birthday party.
21. Chocolate Hunt
Hide a variety of chocolate around the party venue. Write out clues for where they are all hidden, or let the kids hunt the house on their own. Remember where you hid each one so you don’t find it totally melted years down the line!
Split the kids into small teams and test their knowledge. A trivia quiz is so fun at this age and will be a great icebreaker for kids who don’t know each other that well. You can ask questions on various themes, like music, art, history, and sports.
Twister is a great way to entertain kids during a party, especially if you need to find a way to bring everyone together and create some laughs.
24. Truth or Dare
Truth or dare can still be innocent and silly at this age. Write a list of truths and dares for kids to choose from. This can include doing 20 pushups, eating a lemon slice, asking about their strangest dream, their worst fear, and more.
25. Name That Song
This can be done individually or in teams. Make a playlist with popular songs and play the first five seconds of each song. Whoever guesses it first wins a point!
A game of charades is a party must-have. This silly game is great for big or small groups. Split the kids into teams and throw the written prompts into a bowl. The first player chooses a word and acts it out to the group. If the team guesses the word, they score a point.
27. Minute To Win It
Put together a dozen Minute To Win It games, and the kids will be captivated. You can play a balloon toss, cup stacking, rubber band shooting, and more. You can find these games online or on YouTube.
28. Drama Game
Put five items in two shopping bags. These items can be random — like a book, a candle, a scarf, a surface cleaner, and a pair of high heels. Give each team a bag full of items and 15 minutes to create a skit to perform for the other team. There’s no winner — it’s just some good old fun!
29. Hanging Donuts
Tie a string around a few donuts and hang them from the ceiling. Kids have to eat a donut while it dangles above their heads. They cannot use their hands at all. It’s harder than it looks!
Is a party complete without a piñata? Not in our books! You can buy these at most party stores or general stores. Blindfold each child as they take turns to hit the piñata open.
Birthday Party Ideas for 11-Year-Olds in Winter
You can still have an epic birthday party if you can’t get outside in the summer heat. Here are 10 birthday ideas for 11-year-olds who were born in the winter.
31. Mystery Dinner Party
Kids this age will love a mystery dinner party. Decorate the house with dim lights and sophisticated accents. You can choose a murder game, like Broadway Murder Mystery, and delegate the characters beforehand. Everyone has to arrive in their costume! You can also make the dinner a surprise, revealing each course as it comes.
32. Hotel Pool Party
There are many party places that will host an 11-year-old’s celebration. We recommend renting a hotel function room for gift-giving, food, and drinks. Then let the kids swim in the indoor pool, playing games and enjoying each other’s company. As a special treat, you can stay the night at the hotel with your son or daughter — but send the friends home for some peace and quiet!
33. Pottery Party
An indoor party at a venue is an awesome idea when the weather is damp. A pottery party will be so much fun — the kids can learn something new and take their creations home to remember forever.
34. Laser Tag
This idea is a blast for boys and girls! It works for any time of the year, too. Take the kids to a laser tag arena and let them run around, trying to score points for their team. After the games, you can grab a bite to eat at the venue or take them to a restaurant for some food.
35. Masquerade Ball
Host a masquerade ball for your son or daughter’s 11th birthday party. This works great if your little one wants to invite both boys and girls — everyone can join the excitement. Everyone arrives in a fancy dress and a mask — the kids can dance, play games, and enjoy food. If you’re inviting a lot of people, consider hiring a venue or party room.
36. Karaoke Party
Celebrate your child’s 11th trip around the sun with some happy music! Rent or buy a karaoke machine and take song requests. Kids can sing together or turn it into a competition — who has the best vocals, who is the best performer, who is the funniest at the mic?
37. Escape Room
Taking the kids to an escape room will ensure this is a party nobody forgets! This incredible bonding activity will be terrific for the kids but also for any adults that are chaperoning. You can take them to an official escape room, or if you’d rather, you can make your own at home.
38. Movie Marathon
You can host a movie marathon at home or visit your local theater. At this age, kids will enjoy watching a movie or two. If it’s part of a series, like Harry Potter, it will be so fun to watch a few films in a row. Don’t forget the popcorn!
39. Spa Party
Whether you’re having a spa party at home or you’re treating the girls to an authentic spa experience, this is a great idea for wintertime. The girls can get their nails done, chill poolside, and do face masks together.
40. Tubing Party
Enjoy the winter snow with a tubing party! It’s safer, and therefore less stressful, than skiing or snowboarding. Plus, anyone can go tubing — no special skills required!
Last-Minute Birthday Party Ideas for 11-Year-Olds
Whether you have been super busy, or your child has just decided randomly that they actually do wanta party — we have 10 last-minute ideas for you. These are easy to throw together in a few days, or a few hours, but they’ll still be very memorable.
41. Pizza Party
Order some pizza, invite a few friends around, and hang out. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy — your closest delivery service will do! No prep for you, minimal clean up, but some very happy kids!
42. Scavenger Hunt
If you have a day or so to plan the party, a scavenger hunt is a quick thing to do. Plus, kids will love it. Write a list of random things they need to find, whether indoors or outdoors. Prompts could include a black tie, a picture of a green flower, a book with numbers, and so on. You can play this at home, outside, or in a public space, like a library.
43. Video Games Party
If you have a lot of video games, and your son or daughter has a few friends they want to invite, why not throw a video games party? It’s super easy to plan with minimal prep. All you need to think about is easy food — like pizza, pasta, or sandwiches.
44. Beach Party
Do you live near a beach? Then you can definitely plan a last-minute party there! Invite a few friends to go with you, pack a picnic and some cake, and the kids can play on the sand and in the water. You can also open presents at the beach to make the party feel more like a birthday.
45. Outdoor Group Activity
Whether you forgot — or your child changed their mind at the last minute — an outdoor group activity is easy to plan at short notice. You can go canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, rock climbing, swimming, and more.
46. Go To a Restaurant
You can usually find plenty of restaurants with availability at short notice. Take your child and a few friends to a restaurant they’ve always wanted to try! You can sit at a separate table to give them some time to themselves, making this feel like a very grown-up event for the birthday boy or girl.
47. Sports Party
What’s your child’s favorite sport? It’s easy to plan a sporty get-together at short notice. Whether you take them to a basketball court or swimming pool or to play a round of volleyball, this is a fun way to exercise and celebrate a significant birthday.
48. Board Games Night
A board games night is an unforgettable (and easy) way to celebrate an 11th birthday. Use games you already have, or buy them a new game for their birthday. They can play for hours with friends while you provide yummy food to keep them going.
49. Fashion Show
Whether you ask everybody to wear an unusual but trendy outfit, or you provide the costumes, a fashion show is fun and easy to plan. Kids can dress up, strut their outfits on a homemade catwalk, and rank each other. If you have time, add a theme for some extra excitement.
50. Makeover Party
If you’re happy to share your makeup, or buy some cheap stuff for the party, this is an easy get-together to plan. You can do the girl’s makeup, or they can do each other’s. Try new hairstyles, too! This is a great way to let them experiment, have fun and be silly.
How To Make an 11th Birthday Very Special
Are you wondering how to ensure the party is special but also successful? Here are some invaluable tips for throwing your 11-year-old a party.
- Host where your child is comfortable: Does your child feel best at home? Do they want to get out of the house? Are they still okay being at the pool with their friends? Ask them where they’d feel most relaxed and host the party there.
- Plan the guest list: No one expects you to invite your child’s entire class at this age. Keep the party to a decent size, inviting your child’s closest friends. This can also limit drama during the day. We recommend anywhere between two and 10 guests.
- Do something meaningful: Make sure to plan something your unique child will love. For instance, don’t throw a makeup party or spa day if they hate girly things. Instead, do something that will mean a lot to them.
- Have a second chaperone: While you don’t need to worry so much about choking hazards and kids falling at this age, hosting will be much easier if you have a partner. This could be your spouse, a close friend, or another parent.
- Set a time and date: Choose a date that will suit the guests (ask around in advance) and be firm with the start and end times. At this age, the party can last a couple of hours, or it can be overnight. Make sure you leave enough time for all the activities!
- Warn the neighbors: The party might be loud, especially if you’re doing karaoke or having a disco! Let the neighbors know about the party in advance so they’re not surprised when they hear a bunch of rowdy pre-teens.
- Make party zones: The kids will likely mingle and move around at their own pace. The party games you planned might go unnoticed. But make sure the house is set up for whatever activities the kids might get up to. Separate the area into zones: for instance, you can have a food zone, a chill zone, a place for games, and a clear path to the bathroom!
- Supply food and use disposable tableware: Ensure there is enough food to keep everyone going for the party. This might mean a meal, but at the very least — lots of snacks! For ease, use disposable plates, cutlery, and cups so you have less cleanup at the end.
- Welcome the guests: Your 11-year-old might be a natural host, but they might also be quite nervous. So you, as the parent, must make kids feel welcome when they come in. Offer them a refreshment upon arrival and have an activity to do right away — this could be taking a Polaroid photo, making a nametag, or guessing how many chocolates are in a jar (the winner takes this home later).
- Make a to-do list: It will be a busy day, so write a to-do list somewhere so you don’t forget a single detail. You don’t want to miss a snack, singing happy birthday, or the gift-giving session.
What Do 11-Year-Olds Do for Fun at Home?
It depends on the child. The beautiful thing about this age is that your child is developing their personality and fine-tuning their interests. This will affect how they spend their day.
Generally, your child might enjoy playing with puzzles, reading books, or doing crafts. Video games, board games, and Lego are also very popular. If they have siblings, they might play games with them, like Simon Says, scavenger hunts, and Hide and Seek.
Eleven-year-olds can also do more adult-like activities like helping with baking, cooking, and even cleaning! If they have specific interests — like drawing, learning origami, or dancing — they will spend a lot of time doing this at home.
Is 11 a Difficult Age?
If your child finds this age difficult, don’t worry — this is normal, and you’re not alone. These early adolescent years can bring a variety of challenges and confusion.
First of all, your child is changing physically (1). Whether they’re going through growth spurts or puberty, this can be scary and overwhelming for young ones. Kids also go through major cognitive changes, as well as emotional and social developments. They are building a sense of self, which can be difficult as they watch their peers change around them.
You should also be aware that around this age, many 11-year-olds will start to question their parents and teachers (2). They’ll also be exposed, whether through a friend or due to their own experience, to drinking, drugs, and possibly, self-harm.
Another major challenge during this time is that friendships change. A lot of people will start forming cliques and groups. Not only can this lead to peer pressure, but it can lead to exclusion, which is often a new experience.
Your child might make impulsive and bad decisions around this time. It’s crucial that you are there for them, explain what makes a good and bad choice, and can keep them safe. Spend quality time with your child, encourage them in their hobbies, and contact a professional if you are worried.
What Can I Do Instead of a Birthday Party?
There are many things to do instead of a party.
One amazing way to celebrate your child without a party is to redecorate their room. They’ve likely grown out of much of the child-like decor, so why not surprise them with an upgrade? You can work on this together to create a timeless and special place for them to relax and sleep.
A shopping trip is also super fun. For my 11th birthday, I went on a shopping spree with my mother, sister, and one friend. It was a lovely day out.
You could also treat your child to a fancy dinner at a restaurant they’ve always wanted to try.
Other ideas include:
- A family camping trip.
- Go to a dessert bar.
- A family vacation.
- Going to a concert or show.
- Visiting the beach.
- Go bowling.
- Have breakfast in bed.
- Going for a hike.
- Go to the cinema.
- Getting family, cousins, and grandparents together.
- Get takeout.
- Bake them their favorite cake.
- Have a ‘yes’ day.
- A family day trip to the theme park, water park, or anywhere your child suggests!
What Do You Put in a Goodie Bag for an 11-Year-Old?
Stuck for goodie bag ideas? Here are a few suggestions:
- Succulent plants.
- Pencils and erasers.
- Temporary tattoos.
- Microwave popcorn.
- Diabolo yo-yos.
- Mini board games.
- Mini puzzle.
- Rubik’s cube.
- A book.
- Homemade cookies.
- A gift card.
- Playing cards.
Are Parents Supposed To Stay at Birthday Parties?
At this age, we don’t expect parents to stick around. But we do recommend having two chaperones — yourself and one other person. So you might want to ask one parent to stay if you can’t get your partner, parent, or sibling roped into the job.

Glow-in-the-dark parties (neon parties) are really popular at the moment. Just check out TikTok for evidence! You will need a room at home you can make dark or hire a venue that can be made dark.

a list of original and inexpensive birthday gifts for a girl
Choosing a gift is always a difficult task. It’s no joke, because you want to give the donee a maximum of positive emotions and provide something really important and necessary! Especially when it comes to children. Choosing a gift for older children can be a difficult dilemma.
«Komsomolskaya Pravda» found out what to give a girl for 11 years to make your gift truly unforgettable.

For a young blogger
It’s no secret that modern children spend a lot of time on the Internet. Girls especially love Instagram, Tik-Tok, Like and other social networks. Someone just takes photos and videos for the likes of their peers, someone is already quite serious about maintaining and promoting their personal blog. In any case, when choosing what to give a girl for 11 years, you should pay attention to digital novelties.
1. Mobile phone
If it is a gift for a serious occasion, such as a birthday, then you can think about purchasing a new mobile phone. Of course, it is not necessary to buy the latest iPhone model, but you can find a suitable one among the budget options. When choosing a phone for an 11-year-old girl, first of all, pay attention to the quality of photos and the amount of internal memory of the phone.
2. Monopod or selfie remote
Whatever you say, girls sometimes take ten selfies for every walk. And, the right word, it is better not to condemn them for this, but simply to give a high-quality “selfie stick”. Delight and gratitude guaranteed!
3. Stands for mobile devices
For some reason, they are often forgotten, but meanwhile, a phone and tablet stand belongs to the category of little things that make life easier for young bloggers. Look for an unusual stand for a mobile phone as a gift, we are sure that active gadget users will appreciate such a present.
For a beautiful fashionista
Girls always remain girls, and they love to spin in front of the mirror a hundred times a day. So, jewelry, fashionable clothes, all kinds of hairpins, combs and even teenage cosmetics will be a win-win option.
4. A set of children’s cosmetics
Every girl wants to imitate adults to try to make up her lips or eyes. Trust me, any 11-year-old fashionista will love the opportunity to use her own make-up kit instead of raiding mom’s makeup bag.
5. Fashion umbrella or watch
Accessories are an important part of any look. Even if the owner of this image is only 11 years old. An unusual umbrella or wrist watch will allow a young fashionista to enjoy the attention of her peers.
6. Jewelry for girls
Earrings, necklaces, bracelets — the choice of jewelry is now extensive. And none of them, for sure, will not be superfluous in a girl’s jewelry box.
For a true fangirl
Ask any 11-year-old girl about her favorite actors, singers or animated series and you will immediately receive a huge shaft of information: names, events and facts, right down to your favorite drink or the colors of the object of her adoration. At the age of 11, the young lady already has her own tastes in music, films and books, and will undoubtedly be delighted with any gift with their symbols. Your main task is to remember the names and titles correctly and not to confuse anything when buying!
7. Stationery and books
Whether you are a fan of the Harry Potter saga or a fan of the animated series Gravity Falls, any diaries, notebooks, books, magazines and notebooks with your favorite symbols will definitely come to the court. Especially since many publishers are now releasing entire fan-made series, so there are plenty to choose from.
8. Clothing with fan symbols
A T-shirt, backpack or scarf with the «correct» image will immediately become a hundred times more valuable for an 11-year-old girl than exactly the same, but with a neutral pattern. Flowers, cats and even ponies are no longer held in high esteem — better pay attention to T-shirts with modern idols.
For creative people

The first clumsy attempts to mold a dog out of plasticine, paint a bunny with colors or knit a scarf are behind us.

How to choose a gift for an 11-year-old girl
- A girl at 11 is no longer a small child, although not yet a full-fledged teenager. Therefore, it is important not to follow inertia and not to buy out of habit a completely childish gift. Dolls at this age, as a rule, are no longer relevant. Rather, on the contrary, they can cause indignation: «I’m no longer small.» But plush toys still come in handy.
- Do not give useful but boring things. A set of textbooks for school or new jeans, of course, are necessary, but they are unlikely to cause delight. But the main thing is emotions!
- Even if you know the birthday girl well, before choosing a gift, check with her relatives about the actual interests of the girl. Especially if you are going to give something modern and youthful. After all, it may happen that yesterday’s ardent fan of Harry Potter today has completely different idols.
- When choosing what to give a girl for 11 years, ask her parents directly. Children at this age are often vocal about their desires and dreams, and it may turn out that you will receive clear instructions or even the name of the thing that the birthday girl dreams of.
- If the child «has everything» and you don’t want to give unnecessary rubbish, you can please the girl with emotions. A certificate for a horseback ride, a master class in clay pot making or drumming will definitely give you an unforgettable experience!
