  • I always rent the skating rink for my kids because its either too hot or too cold to do much outside. Maybe you can do something like that.

  • My son for the past couple of years LOVES to go to Chuck y cheese. I don't have to worry about anything and I did not book a party with the, because those boys do not care about chucky!! I bought pizza, tokens and drinks and they played for hours!!

  • At 8 they are not not chuck e cheese anymore. My son just turned 8 and I would suggest pump it up or I took my son to this place and the kids at the party cannot stop talking about it ( his birthday was in september) it had a variety of things to do like bowling, laser tag video games and it was only $189 for 10 kids and it included everything even the cake (ohh not party favors) it was called alley cats. It was the best money I ever spent.

  • My son just turned 8 dec 3rd. I told him to pick 3 friends and we went to see the movie of his choice then came home and made our own pizza and he had them spend the night. He had a blast!!

  • i had my son choose 5 of his friends and they made thier own pizza also...they had a blast doing that...they got to make a dinner pizza and a desert pizza...and i let him choose between bowling, skating, or just games at home.
