I don't know where you live, but if it is reasonably warm around your birthday, or even a crisp Autumn day, why not do a pot luck picnic at a local park? If it has barbecue grills, you could do hot dogs, burgers, sausage, etc. But each guest must bring something..side salad, beans, dessert. And they can't buy it premade, even the guys. Give a blue ribbon or prize for the one voted best dish.
Play games like Twister and board games like Trivia Pursuit, Pictionary, Scrabble, Clue. No computers allowed! If you feel like being more active, the park may have volleyball or basketball equipment. Don't laugh, but throwing frisbees, footballs, playing dodge ball, blowing bubbles, doing hula hoops and jumping rope can be fun, no matter what age. Ever done the limbo? Hysterical!
Pick up a few burlap bags or use old pillow cases and have a 3 legged race. Sounds hoakie, but I bet it gets everyone laughing.
A day in the fresh outdoors can be a lot of fun. Take goofy pictures of everyone and be sure to have music. Just think how inexpensive it will be!
Have a great day, whatever you do. More ideas on my website, www.feelinfestive.com.
