Ds is 11 in May and as its his last birthday in primary school and is only a couple of months away from them all going to different high schools id like to throw a party for him and his friends. They are obviously too old for most things and there will probably be around 15 of them so no sleepovers!! Ideas

I find this easiest way is to ask the kids what they want.

Too old for most things at 11? Pool party? Laser quest? What’s he into?

A treasure trail with activities at each stop.

Yup, don’t like the bride or the mother of the groom. Probably not the father of the groom either. Basically half the top table...

Laser quest? My ds wants to go paint balling.

DD had a bowling party for her 11th. Adults go bowling so I can't see how kids could be too old... Same goes for taking everyone to the cinema, or swimming, or laster quest type stuff - if most are sporty then climbing and other sporty parties. 11 isn't too old for much unless you mean soft play...

Hi - we booked a room at the local community centre and hired Mad Pete via Bark. He was absolutely hilarious and taught the boys magic tricks as well as entertaining them.
