Best Places to Celebrate Kids Birthday

It can be tough to plan a birthday party for kids. Not everyone has the room to throw a party at their home, and even if you do, the preparation and cleanup can be a nightmare. To save you the hassle, we have found the best places to celebrate kids birthday.

Having 8 great aunts, I know a little something about throwing birthday parties for kids, and the guest list was never short. Sometimes, the huge gathering in the backyard just doesn\’t cut it. So, I started looking elsewhere.

There are many places to throw a kids party that will give you a group deal. All you have to do is a little bit of research, and you can save yourself some money and a headache. So, here are some of the best places to celebrate kids birthday.

Amusement Park

Amusement Parks are fun for all ages, so this is a great option for kids of any age. Make sure to call or check their website before you go because most parks offer group deals. Depending on the size and ages of your group, have them check in at a certain place throughout the day, or just make sure each group has a chaperone. Either way, it\’s a great way to make your kids birthday a memorable experience.


\"paintball\" Paintball

Paintball is a great option for older kids, and a really fun group activity for adults too. Most paintball arenas have a separate resting area for after the game to rest and have cake.

Skating Rink

\"Skating Skating Rink

Whether it\’s ice skating or roller skating, most rinks have really great party packages. Not only will everyone get to skate together, but most rinks also have a dj where the birthday kid can request their favorite songs. Some rinks even offer food and plastic utensils in their packages.

Beach Day

\"Beach Beach Day

This is a great way to have a fun, cheap birthday. Pack some sandwiches and let the kids have fun in the sun. Everybody loves a nice beach day, but make sure you have a backup plan in case of a storm.

Recreation Hall

\"Recreation Recreation Hall

There are quite a few places that rent out their halls for birthday parties. Check your local church, fire station or dance hall to see what they charge for a few hours of fun. Then, plan the party any way you want. Decorations, food and entertainment will be up to you to provide, but many recreation halls have games, kitchen and sound systems that they will let you use.


\"Camping\" Camping

This can be done in your backyard or at a local campground, if you don\’t have enough room. Most kids love the outdoors, and camping gives them a great opportunity to spend time outside. Teach the kids how to build a fire, and don\’t forget the s\’mores!


\"Aquarium Aquarium or Zoo

Seeing live animals is such a fun experience for kids. Whether it\’s the aquarium or the zoo, they\’ll love getting to experience new things with their friends. Many places have party packages that include admission, private tours and even food.


\"Museum\" Museum

Children\’s Museums can be a great place to rent out for a kids birthday party. They not only offer fun experiences for kids, but it can be a great learning experience too. So, check out your local museum to find party deals.


\"Painting\" Painting

Paint Nights can be so much fun for adults to spend time together, but they also have them for kids. Let their creativity flow and give them something to proudly display at home, with a fun painting experience. You can join a group or plan a painting experience at home.

Indoor Maze

\"Indoor Indoor Maze

Indoor mazes are so exciting, and you don\’t have to worry about the weather. Most places have some different themes to choose from. So, each kid can have a unique experience. If you\’re trying to save money, try turning your yard or basement into a unique maze for your kid and their friends.

Trampoline Park

\"Trampoline Trampoline Park

Trampoline parks are fun for all ages. So, if you\’re looking for an activity that even the adults will enjoy, this is a great option for you. Your kids can have a fun birthday while you get a workout in and have just as much fun as the kids.

Bowling Alley

\"Bowling Bowling Alley

This is an old school idea, but it is still just as fun for kids today. It\’s as easy as renting out a few lanes at your local bowling alley and letting the kids have fun all day. Most bowling alleys serve food and have an arcade area in case the kids get tired of bowling. Check with your local bowling alley to see if they offer disco bowling. Some alleys have specific days of the week where they bring out the lazer lights and loud music which can only add to the party fun.

Ski Resort

\"Ski Ski Resort

Normally, winter birthdays mean that you\’re stuck indoors, but a ski resort is a great way to have a party outside despite the weather. Many resorts offer party packages with optional lessons for those people who are a little less experienced.

Movie Theater

\"Movie Movie Theater

Another great indoor party idea is to take the kids to see a movie. I remember going to see one of the Harry Potter movies for my best friend\’s birthday, and I talked about it for years. Before you go, save yourself from any awkward moments by reading movie reviews.

Hopefully, we\’ve given you some helpful options for your kids next birthday. Whether it\’s an outside activity or you have to keep it indoors, there are plenty of options for party venues other than your backyard. So, pack up the kids, take them out and leave the cleaning to someone else for once.
