for a kids birthday party? DS b-day is coming up and I have to start planning. Problem is, in a tiny town all the fun party locations are at least a 45min drive from our town. Of course I want there to be other kids at the party otherwise my money is wasted and ds doesn't have as much fun. So how far do you think is too far to drive for a party?
*Just a note kids invited will be classmates and/or football teammates. Family lives too far away to come
***To add a little more info for everyone-- DS will be turning 8 in October. I start planning early to save money for everything. The weather that time of year here can be a bit unpredictable so I generally try to find an indoor spot to have it. No matter whether it's indoor or outdoor, we live with my parents and they're not ok with hosting a party here so home parties are out :( We're thinking of having it a science museum that is in the next big town over. Depending of what side of town people are coming from the drive would be 30-45 minutes. This is actually the closest of venues I looked at. The party package itself is pretty good. It includes all day museum admission for up to 25 people w/ discounted admission for extras, 2 hours in the party room, a craft for the kids to do and take home with them. Plus, they have a deal with a pizza place for catering so if I use them I get a big discount. I provide food, drinks, and cake, and would have enough for everyone that RSVPs (kids and parents)
