  • Indoor inflatable playground. where I live there is a place in the mall where they can build their own cars and race them all while having a b-day party.

  • I never checked the prices, just knew they were there. How about Chucky Cheeses? Or just have a party at home with musical chairs or pin the tail on the donkey kind of thing.

  • Theme birthday parties are a lot of fun. What is your son interested in? Pirates? Have a pirate cake, games could include a treasure (scavenger) hunt, pin the eye patch (or other pirate object) on the pirate, fishing for treasure, pinata with a pirate theme....take any theme that your child is interested in and games he enjoys, and put a twist on it. Relay races are always a big hit too. Having other moms to help makes things run more smoothly. Good luck, and have fun!

  • MY MOM USED TO INVENT THE COOLEST PARTIES CAUSE SHE NEVER HAD ENOUGH MONEY FOR ANY OF THE CHUCKY CHEESE OR BIG STUFF . MUSICAL HEART IS RIGHT . GO WITH SOMETHING YOUR KIDS IS INTERESTED IN . I REMEMBER ONE YEAR WE HAD A BACKWARDS PARTY . EVERYONE HAD TO WEAR THERE CLOTHES BACKWARDS WE HAD AN UP SIDE DOWN CAKE . WE DID A RING TOSS OVER OUR BACKS AND WE TOOK TAILS OFF THE DONKEY . YOU CAN HAVE A COSTUME PARTY TOO WHERE IN THE BEGINNING EVERYONE GETS TO MAKE A MASK WITH PAPER PLATES AND CRAFT STUFF AND YARN . UUUMMM O YEAH PINATAS ARE ALWAYS A BIG HIT .
