  • Hmm...I was gonna suggest a pool party. You could just go to a park and have like a picnic...grill out.

  • I like the BBQ in a park idea. :) When my daughter turned 6 we went to one of those paint your own party places. It wasn't as spendy as one might expect. For $12 I got to reserve the party room along with a bouquet of balloons, platter of cookies, a pitcher of punch and a custom painted plate for her. The party room was full of small figurines that cost about $6 a piece for party goers. I was coming in way under budget and had a few girls not show so was able to let the girls go into the main area and pick something that cost a little more. It was a hit! :)

  • checky cheese might be a place to have the party since kids could play games and of course ac. I have never heard of those paint your own party places. If your a church goer they usually have a room you can use for parties.

  • Have you checked one of those indoor inflatable party places?... like "pump it up" I don't know what they charge per head, but it includes pizza and drinks and kids have a blast.
    Party at the park would be great too. If you reserve the park through your city park and recreation dept (which doesn't cost much) they might allow you to have a bouncy there. You can do bbq and some games and the kids will be busy with the park play equipment (you can take some toys too) and the boundy (if the city allows it)
    The paint places are fun too, but I haven't seen anything for less than $12/per kid in our area. You may want to check your local paint place and maybe negotiate a better price with them.
    good luck

  • Check your bowling alleys day rates, very few people bowl on a weekday so they have lower rates. I took my daughter on a Monday morning, paid $1.50 a game and rented their shoes for $3.50. All in all, for 7 girls, it cost me $40 and then I took them to Wendy's for $1 burgers fries and shakes. Or, the park and BBQ would be good, especially if the pavillion is close to the playground.

  • I would say park and you can still do bouncy houses there if they allow it you will have to ask and be there early so you can grab a spot (thats the only sucky part)
