Choosing a Birthday Party Venue for Your Kids
One of the things that are often a debate in a house with kids is where will their birthday party be held this year? After you have exhausted the traditional venues such as the bowling alley and the local fast food restaurant, you could be struggling for ideas. However, there are still many places you can try depending on your kid’s interests, here are a few suggestions.
It might sound like a simple idea, but if you have a garden that’s big enough to cope, then it can be a fantastic way to throw a party. For those with a huge garden, you could consider hiring a marquee to put all the food and a bouncy castle to keep the kids occupied. The marquee will also prevent lots of people going in and out of the house to eat. Even a small garden can accommodate a decent size party, just make sure you protect any areas such as a fish pond from people falling in. To be sure, you can always check sites like My Gardening Network for a pond vacuum to clean it out.
If you are fortunate enough to live near to a beach, then it could be a fantastic place to have a party. All you need are some games and perhaps a picnic or barbeque, and you have everything you need. Because you are having the party on the beach, you can invite as many people as you wish.
Paint Ball Facilities
For older children, they might like to do something a little more challenging and energetic. Paintballing centers are opening all over the country, so there is bound to be one near where you live. It is important to double check the facilities before you book to make sure there are adequate safety measures in place and that they offer full protective clothing.
Another place for the active children, trampoline parks are safe indoor warehouses that have many trampolines joined together. It allows you to jump across the floor and off the walls in a safe environment. The good part about these types of places is that there are often areas for smaller children to play as well.
There are a lot of children that are heavily into their computer games whether that is on a console or a PC. If you know that their friends are also similarly into games, then why not host a gaming party. They can use your children’s computer or consoles to play games and take part in friendly competitions. The good part is that friends who cannot make it can also play online with them. If you were planning on giving them a new console or game for their birthday, then this might be the perfect venue to do it.
These are just a few of the many ideas you can find for an alternative birthday venue. Make it part of the process with your child helping to choose, and it will be the perfect party.
