Our 10 year old loves geography and suggested an "Around the World" theme for his birthday party. It was a great theme and we got very creative setting up countries and activities - sort of a mini olympics - from soccer in Brazil to Riverdancing in Ireland to a pinata in Mexico. We did origami and a chopsticks race in Japan and built the Great Wall of China in China. In the USA, we played basketball while listening to the Harlem Globetrotters music. While we did activities in each country, we played music for that country.
