Activities for a 60th birthday party should include events guests of all ages can participate in and enjoy. Do things that aren't too taxing but are still interactive and exciting.
Have a Sing-a-long
Most birthday parties include an off-tune rendition of the birthday song, but the fun doesn't have to stop there. After the cake is cut, the host can lead guests in a good old-fashioned singalong. Use popular songs that young and old guests know the words to such as "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," and if you have the budget, hire a band to help.
Play Old Movies
Host a private showing of a vintage movie the birthday boy or girl loves. Watching a movie is relaxing and fun. Plus the guest of honour will enjoy sharing his or her favourite flick (and the attached memories) with the other partygoers.
Have every guest bring pictures of the guest of honour. Set aside a special time during the party for everyone to share the photos and the stories behind them. Or plan a "This is Your Life" theme party by inviting special surprise guests, such as former teachers and long lost friends who can share special memories.
