2. Something’s Fishy
Let’s face it, kids love touching gross things. So what better than taking them to the local aquarium for some quality time with the touch tanks.
Arrange for a tour of the aquarium and for a separate area for the cake and festivities. But we all know the highlight of the trip will be the opportunity to touch a stingray.
3. Get Cheesy
Contact your local pizza parlor and ask if they’d be willing to host your party before they open for business. Arrange for everyone to get a personal sized amount of dough so each child can make their own personal pan pizza.
Rent a couple lanes at your local bowling alley and have partygoers bowl for an afternoon. Usually, the alley will provide a separate room for cake and refreshments.
5. Get Crafty
If your child is into crafting, then nothing would be better than hosting your party at the craft store such as Michael’s. Just go in advance and pick out which craft you want to do at the party.
You only have to pay a small fee plus supplies and bring your own food and party supplies. The store will supply you with a room and a party leader to teach partygoers how to do the craft.
6. Fire Department
Contact your local fire department and inquire about hosting a possible visit. Usually, for a donation, your local fire department will welcome you to the station.
Partygoers can learn about being a firefighter, get an up-close look at the truck, and try on the equipment. Just remember that if they are called to duty, the party is over.
7. Get Wild
Many local zoos will host birthday parties where a staff member will give a tour. You could even arrange for partygoers to interact with a wild animal or two.
