Your 9 & 6 yr olds might enjoy a skating party. You could rent the whole rink & do them together. Invite all their friends get 2 cakes (his/hers). It's no fuss no muss, and it's still early enough in Dec that noone will mind buying gifts. My kids go to lots of BD parties in Dec. I 've never minded buying gifts. As for your 15 yr old...Maybe he won't mind waiting a few days! Maybe you could let him have a New Year's Eve/B-Day Bash! Music, dancing, snacks, chaperones!!! LOL I know I would have loved that!

Hello,
I took my son/daughter to Build a Bear for my son's first birthday they enjoyed it but it can become very costly....they say you can build a bear for $10 and you can but when the kids see all the options the $10 will go out the window, and if you clothed the bear, that is where the money is, they have all these out fits and gadgets for the bears, it is so expense. The experience is short. There is a little song while building and an "air" bath, naming the bear but it is not a very long process. I would recomend checking the facility out first without the kids a decide if it fits in your budget, Hope this helps.

My daughter will be 7 on December 3, so just around the corner.  We were thinking we would do an old fashioned birthday party with "pin the tail on the donkey," balloon races, lifesaver pass, and drop the clothespins into the jar games.  I would make homemade cupcakes and serve juice boxes.  The only hurdle now is where to have it since we live in an apartment. 

Where we live, you never know whether it will be sunny and 80 degrees or snowing on Dec. 3.  It could go either way.  If we knew it would be nice we could have it at the park but there definitely needs to be a back up plan.
