where is the best place to have a birthday party for a 6-year old?

May is a killer month for me. Not only do I have my aunt's birthday, my sister's birthday, and Mother's Day, but I have 3 kids with birthdays in the same week-May 12, 15, and the 19th. My daughter will be 12, my son will be 11 and my youngest will be 6. I was thinking about combining the oldest two's parties and concentrating on my 6 year old because she has never had a birthday party. Which would be the cheapest and most enjoyable for the kids that age, having it at a park , renting the skating rink, or having it at Chucke Cheeses-their prices where I live is $11.oo per child. I still would like to plan something for my older two.

  • You don't have to rent out the entire skating rink, here anyway. I had a combined party for my 7 and 9 year olds at the local rink, during regular skating hours - there was a flat fee which covered pizza, cake, ice cream and drinks for the kids. When it was our "party time" they announced it over the loud speaker between songs and all the kids came to a special party they had decorated in the concession area. It worked out really well!
    The most economical would be a park, but you do have to consider the weather and plan for a "rain date" just in case.

  • We are having our daughters party at the park this year. In the past, we have had them at home or at an activity center.

  • Maybe a combined swimming party?

    We used a local hotel's indoor pool for my DD's 6th birthday party (its the thing to do in the mountain community that I live). If you call the local hotels, they might just rent their pool to you for a couple hours too :) We paid $110 for 4 hours and we were able to invite 25 guests (pool capacity. it was a small pool area)

  • We rented a pavilion at a park for my daughter. It was 20.00 for a whole day, and they had trash bins, a grill, 10 picnic tables, and of course closes access to a park and bathrooms... Worked perfect for us, and accommodates a wide range of ages.
