Birthday party!

My daughter turns 7 in June so we are trying to figure out a birthday party. She's always had one at the local park splash pad with family. She wants to do something else this year. We've considered the zoo, chuck e cheese, and finally build a bear which we've really been thinking of.

You have to have 6 kids at least and pay a minimum of 12.00 a child. I was thinking of giving each child a limit of 15.00-20.00 on me for there animal but then there parents would be responsible for clothes or accessories they want. Is that tacky? I figured then we could have cake in the food court if that's allowed and I'd get each of the kids a happy meal from chick fil a. Would you take your child to a party like that? Any other party ideas or suggestions. Thanks!

If I was sending my child I would expect the entire party was paid by the hostess. If you can't afford the entire bear find a different venue.

I would be fine with it. You can get the smaller stuffed animal for $12 and have $8 left for clothes. Parents wouldn't have to pitch in much if they didn't want to.

I wouldn't attend that party. It would ended up costing me more than its worth.

Wait. So what does the $12 cover? And then you are giving each child an additional $15?  Wouldn't that be enough to cover the bear and an outfit??

You have to have a budget for the children at a minimum of 12.00 so I was thinking I could do 15.00 per child. Total

Ahh, ok. Sorry, I misunderstood :/   Thats a tough decision but honestly, I would do enough to cover one bear and an outfit. Thats the whole fun of build a bear, dressing up the bear. And I don't think parents are going to want to pay extra at a party after already buying a gift for your child, ya know?

$15 to $20 is enough to buy a bear so I think it's fine. I'd love to go to or have a party like that but our build a bear is really far away :(
