You are really suffering with this birthday, aren't you, you poor thing! What about a trip to the cinema to see Peter Pan? It sounds suitably scary for 10 year olds, even if it is a fairy story. We took my 9 year old to see Elf with his friends, but probably a bit late for that. If you weren't in deepest Somerset I might be able to think of a few other things, but we always had to make our own entertainment when I was growing up there, oo ar. Is a trip to @Bristol a possibility, or too far? Panto in Bristol? Ice-skating? (all things I did for birthdays at around this age, apart from @Bristol!) Don't know exactly where you are though....

Laser tag shooting game?

I'm taking my soon to be 6 yo on an overnight train for his birthday. This is instead of a party, though. He's very excited as it was his idea (the overnight train, not it being for his birthday..).

Could you do something bigger, but just with him? We'll have a birthday playdate on his actual birthday with a very few friends.

I did laser tag (Quasar) with a whole group of work friends once. We had the place to ourselves and it was excellent. I couldn't walk the next day since I spent the whole time crouched behind a barrier picking workmates off one by one over the top! 10 year old boys would love it.

Would ice-skating be a possibility then, or has the rink closed? It would probably be a bit of a novelty, wouldn't it?

Forgot to say, Laserquest sounds perfect.

Ten pin bowling, with drinks and snacks at hand, followed by watching movies at at house, popcorn etc, maybe one of friends could stay the night.

Having suggested both laser guns as a present and Laser Tag as a treat, I would like to point out that I'm not a gun obsessed maniac, honest!

I hope your DS enjoys his birthday, whichever treat he goes for.

Hehehe. (that's a chuckle, not an evil laugh BTW)

How many of them are there? Do they all like football? Hiring a sports hall for a 5-a-side (or 6-a-side or however many) usually goes down well. But the laser-shooting sounds good too. Not sure about ice-skating for novices - they will fall over a lot and get sore ankles! (Course they might like doing that...)
