Planning My Son's Birthday

United Kingdom
November 24, 2016 5:56pm CST
My son is turning 11 yo on valentines day! So i'm brainstorming now to what theme or food or what he wants to do on his birthday. 2017 Valentines Day falls on a Tuesday so he has school by then. So we need to prepare food to bring to his school for his classmates and teachers. My son loves dinosaurs and animals. Trucks. Construction trucks. He has been asking for a tablet or a phone where he can play minecraft and other games. I can probably plan for a minecraft celebration. But since i won't be there on his birthday... i can just ask my brother and mom to help me to buy stuffs. He won't be having a birthday party i am not there to plan and make everything from invitations and decorations and all.. anyway.. so cake will definitely be minecraft then they will just go out for a special meal over the weekend then he could buy some toys or stuffs that he likes.. Any suggestions?

I like three mine craft idea. I am sure he would like that too. It would be a good theme party. Sorry you won't be there to help him celebrate his special day.

No idea as I never had kids, but good luck, you've got plenty of time to plan.

I think minecraft theme is a pretty good one. Does he have a favorite youtuber that you can get branded gifts from? I know there are several UK youtubers who play minecraft and have items for sell in the shops in the UK. My niece is obsessed with the game as well, and loves some of the youtubers over there. Maybe a trip to a fun land sometime around the birthday?

they will probably plan a trip to the city then they could eat out, shop and most importantly go to Church
