GI Joe Birthday Party
Thinking about a GI Joe Birthday Party for your son? Well, it is a very popular boys party theme. The release of the Rise of the Cobra has made GI Joe a big hit with the kids...he was always a popular guy as I recall. Now with his new crew, including Snake Eyes, he is more stealth than ever.

Start your party off with a GI Joe Surprise right away.
Make each guest a name tag, or buy the pack of G.I. Joe Sigma6 Dog Tags (4 count), and fill it in with either the child's name or use a military rank or use an ALIAS. Each child can have their own military alias, just like the Joes have.
Whatever food you are going to serve (tip: boys love subs and chicken nuggets...macaroni and cheese too.)
Label your food Mess, just like they call it in the army. GI Sandwiches or GI Burgers...whatever it is you decide to serve this platoon.
GI Joe Birthday Party Banner
Use Camouflage colors to decorate for your GI Joe birthday party. You can make your own GI Joe party banner by using some sponges, green, black and tan paint and a large piece of paper. Sponge the paper with one of the paint colors. Let it dry. When it's dry sponge another color paint on top of it, but don't completely cover the first color. Let the second layer dry. Finally begin to sponge the last color paint on the paper. Don't cover all the other colors. Can you see how it's beginning to look just like camouflage? Now cut out the letters that spell Happy Birthday and glue or tape them onto your painted banner!
You can find plenty of great party decorating supplies and ideas at GI Joe Birthday Party Supplies at Celebrate Express.
If you have any GI Joe figures you can use them as additional decorations by using them as a centerpiece on your party table.

GI Joe Birthday Party Game Ideas
Snake Eye Stealth Hunt
Have a scavenger hunt for the boys at your party. Call it Snake Eyes stealth hunt. After all, Snake Eyes is a master of Martial Arts, Ninja style, and can move without being seen or heard. All you have to do is hide some stickers or other small GI Joe favor idea...may some temporary tattoos. Put them into ziploc bags or small plastic eggs and hide them around your yard or your party room. Send the troops on a stealth mission to find them.
Basic Training Obstacle Course
Everyone who goes into the army's basic training program does drill and has to complete obstacle courses. Why should your GI Joe birthday party be any different. Plan a relay race course and put some obstacles down on the race path. Make sure your racing teams have enough room to go around or go over each obstacle.
GI Joe Birthday Party Cake
Use an army camouflaged cake topper for you party cake. It's easy to use a cake topper and it's cheaper than going to the local bakery to buy a birthday cake. It's fun to decorate your own cake, so try it sometime.
With a cake topper kit all you do is bake and frost you cake as usual, well in this case you may want to use some light green and black frosting...to make it look like camouflage. Then just set these cake topper pieces on top of your cake...and look at what you have done! You baked and decorated your very own son's birthday cake...and it looks Great!
GI Joe party games are easy to arrange...any kind of relay race, or treasure/scavenger hunt will feel like an army game to the kids.
