How to throw a super simple birthday party for an 11 year old boy.

party1
Back in September my oldest turned 11 years old.  Ugh. 
He is 5 foot tall now ( a mere 7" shorter than me) and in his last year of elementary school.

I threw him a small, simple party this year.

party2
He invited a handful of friends to come celebrate.
I filled the kitchen table with junk food, koolaide and labeled plates and cups.

party3
Party favors in paper cups I got at Target dollar spot.
I put googly eyes on and filled with a few party favors from Party City and gum.

Outside a bowl of styrofoam airplanes, glow sticks and silly string.

party4
They came to hang out for 3 hours and just ate and played as they pleased.

party5
Kickball and football in the front yard.

party6
Silly string in the back yard.

Looks like a great party to me. Can't go wrong with light saber battles and silly string.
