When you look back over the years, do you remember that your little son loved tricycles and then bicycles more than any of his other toys? If so, that passion might have grown right along with him. Now that he's older, you might be considering to celebrate his next birthday with a bike theme. From sending out invitations in the mail to buying your son a new dirt bike, here are some ideas that might help you.
Snail Mail Invitations - Of course, you could text or email invitations to your son's friends, and that would be fine. However, don't you think there's something special about getting an invitation in the mail? Think of clever wording you can include in the invitation. For example, if it's a bike-themed party, you might have a picture of an old-fashioned bicycle on the front of the card with accompanying words like, Speed Over To My Bike Party!
The Party Games - Of course, if you've chosen an outdoor area where the kids will actually be riding their bikes, your activity will be easy to plan. Consider having things like a bike course they have to manage or have teams that go out for a scavenger hike on their bikes. If the kids who are coming to your son's birthday party won't actually be riding bikes, consider games that are bike-related. For example, instead of the old Pin The Tail On The Donkey game, make it harder by having parts of a bike, say the handlebars and the wheels, that have to be placed on the body of the bike while blindfolded. A movie like ET might be fun to show, too, as it has plenty of bike riding in it.
The Dirt Bike Gift - Whether you give your son his gift at the party or just in a family setting, this will more than likely be the best part of his birthday. If you already know what kind of dirt bike you want to buy, go for it. If you're not sure how to shop for a dirt bike, consider getting the help from an expert at a store that specializes in different types of bicycles. The salesperson will more than likely be trained in the different types of dirt bikes that are available at his or her store. He or she will probably suggest a powerful dirt bike that has fully automatic transmission and that can be driven off-road on rough terrain. The dirt bike will manage hills and valleys as well as it does going on straight roads.
If your child is still growing, you might not want to spend a lot on the dirt bike, as he will eventually outgrow it. If that's the case, you'll be happy to know that dirt bikes come in all prices. In addition, they come in so many colors that you'll probably be able to buy a safe one in your son's favorite color. For more information, reach out to a company that has dirt bikes for sale.
