4 Year Olds Birthday

I was wondering if anyone had ideas for somewhere to go for a 4 year old girls birthday. I can't do anything at my place and the kids coming will range from 3 to 13 years old. So far everything i've looked at will not work. I'm open for pretty much anything, i'm just running out of time to plan.

Enjoy the party what ever you decide :o)

Living Sensation Gymnastics in Pace is an awesome place to go for birthday parties. Kids of all ages would be able to enjoy a party there. The owner and staff are amazing with kids and they have plenty of space and activities to accomodate large groups. The phone # is ###-###-####.

Pump it Up is a great choice for kids ranging from 3 - 13 years. It is a place full of bouncy stuff and a couple huge slides. It is also nice for the parent because you do not have to do anything other than bring a cake. My son is 5 and we have been to several parties over the years and all kids love it.

Not sure where you live, but for my dtr's third bday we went to BounceU. We had children from 1-13 and it was so perfect. I think we are going to go again this yr. They are a little on the expensive side, I think we paid like $400 but that includes bounce time in 2 different rooms, plus they provided optional pizza and cake. I know there is one is Sarasota...www.bounceu.com
Good luck

Have you tried Michael's? They have a party room where the kids all do a craft that you pick and they get to take it home.

My daughter is about to turn 4 and we are seriously thinking of Chuck E Cheese. Even toddlers love the stimulation and fun, four year olds for sure will love all the action and having three older kids ( and their friends) ages 9, 13 and 15. They actually still like Chuck E Cheese. They can always play video games and play hide and seek in the big climber. Plus free flowing soda, pizza and cake is always a big hit with kids no matter what age. The oldest child will completely understand that they were invited to a small child's birthday party and will find a way to entertain him or herself with the older aged video games and will probably enjoy helping out the little ones with games and such. You can even put that older child in charge of video taping, making him the media specialist for the day. I know my son would take that responsibility with pride and excitement. Biggest plus: NO PARTY CLEAN UP! And if you go tot he website, and sign up for the birthday club you will get emails with coupons and free tokens when you book a party. The parents even enjoy sitting around socializing while thier kids run and play safely, there is no worry about them leaving with the wrong person, or getting into something they shouldn't so it's stress free for parents as well.

I'm not sure of the places you've currently looked but over the past year we went to several 4yo b-day parties and below are some of the places/ideas:

* Birthday World in Altamonte Springs. Fun for this age - games, rides, pizza, a bounce house. http://www.birthdayworldorlando.com/

* Bounce U (Sanford). If you are looking for a bounce house warehouse this place is perfect. They have two bounce house rooms and then a private party room to go to after the kids finish bouncing. http://www.bounceu.com/

* My Gym (Lake Mary) - they do it all but you can also have a themed party here...the one we attended was a "tea party" and all the little girls came dressed up. http://www.my-gym.com/parties.aspx

* I can't recall the place but it was a dance studio. The girls had a ball dancing.

* Central Florida Zoo (Sanford) - the party is short but then the individual families can enjoy the zoo at their leisure if that package is purchased. http://www.centralfloridazoo.org/zoo-info/zooper-birthday...

* A park. Not sure where you are located but there is a great park in Umatilla that has pavilions that can be rented. http://www.lakecountyfl.gov/departments/public_resources/...

Hope this helps but I am sure whatever you decide your 4yo will have a great time - they don't require much at this age, their family and friends are enough for them to have fun and to put a smile on their faces.

I heard that Build a Bear could be lots of fun. Yet it may be a little costly.

Good Day,
My 2 girls and I love to have their parties at a public park. Like Quiet Waters! We park near the play ground and set up picnic tables for the celebration! Once we bought 5 Xtra Lrg. Pizzas' & the cake! It was great, clean up was very easy, and the kids played in the park. It is also easy to set up games there. We have also enjoyed a simple bar-b-q there! I hope this can give you some ideals! God luck and Happy Birthday to your little one!
Sincerely,
Kathy N & Family

Chuck E Cheese?
If it is all girls, I know Snip-Its (kids haircut place) does a girls pampering party - they will do nails, crafts, etc - all girlie stuff. Not sure if it will appease the 13 year olds, but worth a look into.

Pump it Up is a great choice for kids ranging from 3 - 13 years. It is a place full of bouncy stuff and a couple huge slides. It is also nice for the parent because you do not have to do anything other than bring a cake. My son is 5 and we have been to several parties over the years and all kids love it.

We're doing our daughter's 4th at Chuck E Cheese. We're not doing a real party with the mouse and all that. We're just bringing our own cake, ordering a few pizzas and drinks for the kids and getting a few tokens. It's cheap, unlimited fun for all ages.

Ollie Koala's!!
It's kind of the same concept of a Chuck E Cheese but the age group that will enjoy this place the best is much more broad. It has the jungle gym that the 3 and 4 year olds LOVE, the little riding games for even younger children and a variety of video games for the older children and parents. I had my son's party there when he turned 3 and the other parents had an awesome time along side their kids. Their packages are decent priced and there a a few different locations around Jacksonville. Good Luck! :)

is there some sort of Park near you with swings and slides and that sort of stuff if so maybe that is a good idea. or mcdonalds at a playland.how about chunky cheese? or even bowling alley a skate ring? a CeeCee's pizza. what about a miniture golf place is their anything like that near you?
hope something on here will help you.

Chick-Fil-A throws a GREAT Bday! For $8 per child with cake or $6 without cake, they get a kids meal that comes with a toy of course, ice cream, a stuffed cow, balloons, THE C-F-A COW!, a hostess, a craft and excellent service.

I had 11 kids, and about 17 adults and it ran me $125. I got a Med nugget tray, a small salad, 3 gallons of tea and some large orders of fries, plus the 11 kids meals. Everyone had a blast - the big kids had fun playing in the playplace as much as the little ones! And they usually enjoy just eating Chickfila and chillin out too.
Our party was great! I highly reccomend it 5 stars!!!!!!

Hello, I have a very good one for you, Call Butterfly Dreams theme parties for kids, they come to you or if you can't do your party at your home, they have a few locations available that you can do your party at. They come with everthing for a party. They are great for all ages and kids just loves them. Look at there website for different party ideas and packages, www.ButterflyDreamsParty.com or call ###-###-####, they take calls 7days a week. If you are running out of time call ASAP to book them. You can also read really good comments about them on Mamasource. And if you have a idea of what you want for your party, they will create it for you if they dont already to it, since they do so many kinds. Good luck and I hope this helps and its something different, Chuck N Cheeses is a old thing to do, everyone has done that already, build a bear at the mall isn't that good, they make the kids do them in the middle of the mall, bounce house is ok but you could always have that as a extra. So this will be the best one that I think out of all the suggestions. Do something different and your family can be there too and all of the kids will really have a good time with Butterfly Dreams and they travel to you. I hope this helps.

Hi,
With excemption this year we always had our son's (who is 4 years old now) birthdays at Chuck E cheese and they were great. I did the reservation online and showed me which days it had available. I always went to the one in Waterford Lakes in East Orlando, cause the one in Altamonte Springs is always full. It includes all and coins for kids, and I just ended up buying extra pizza for the adults. If not just take a cake ofcourse go early to any of them close to you and just do the party in one of the empty tables and you can save a lil bit of $. Other places (which i've only heard of ) are Birthday world (Altamonte Springs), Kid Tropolis (Sanford) and there are other places of course more expensive that they have jumpers inside ( I can't remember the name). If it's warm outside, go to any parks, I did the one for my 1 year old, last year at a park in Debary, it was awesome and only paid $10 for the gazebo and it was next to the playground. Well, let me know if you need anymore help. Good luck!

Did u try pump it up in margate, that is where i did my 3 yr olds party and we had the same age range. What about the skating rink or a gymnastics place. Good Luck

Where i go to Church has a fellowship hall and they allow the people that go there to use it for things like this. All they ask is for you to take care of everything and leave it as clean as you found it. Why don't you try that. J.

My daughter just went to a party at LaFleur's Gymanstic's. So if all of the kids are active. I was impressed with all the activites that they had there for all ages- including toddlers.

Party is for 2 hr. Kind of pricey, but then all of the places are.

There is also Lowry Park & the Aquarium.

Next year after Sept, the Glazer's Children museum may be a option, but that is good for up to Age 10

MOSI may have something too.

What a bunch of great suggestions!
I'm not sure where you are located - but we've had several parties in the Central FL / Polk County area. This is what has worked for us, they've all been hits.
1st bday - chuckie Cheese in Lakeland - kids aged 1 (mine) to 10 - all had fun.
2nd) Mary Holland Park in Bartow - had ponies - Jess' party ponies from Mulberry - kids ages 2 - 11, everyone had a blast, played in playground, rode hand led ponies through the shaded pine tree area, served food in a pavillion - reserve through Bartow Parks & Rec.
3rd) - Bowling party - they all do it, but ours was @ Orange Bowl in Lakeland - kids aged 2 -12 + adults, pgk included private room, pizza, beverages, shoes, 2 or 3 lanes and 2 hours of bowling. Everyone had a blast.
4th) Puppies & Ponies party - back @ Mary Holland Park in Bartow - same ponies, + payground + party favors were "build a bear" STYLE dalmation puppies (found online) - in red bags, had "stuffing party" @/near the end of the party - everyone LOVED IT.
5th) Back to Mary Holland Park AGAIN - rented big pavillion, hired face painter / art student - had "Fairy" party - made fairy skirts, tutus, wands & halos for each girl - that + treasure bag w/ mini bottle of fairy dust, some chocolates and good luck token were the favors.
Also -in Lakeland there is a place called Backyard Adventures - it is an inflatable / bouncy place - or Mad Science, or the Children's museum. In Winter Haven - there is T&R's Funhouse - like a Chuckie Cheese, but larger, cleaner, not as expensive, not as crowded.
Good luck & Have fun!

Hiya,

Monley Joes in Sunrise is great. Just off sawgrass expway and very inexpensive. They are indoor bouce house slides, they have a section for 3 and under. The party inc pizza / drinks and a visit from Monkey Joe.

Hello, have you tried out this new birthday party company called The Royal Party Room?
They bring beautiful parties to whatever location you choose.
They also have different themes. The reviews are great too on parents connect.
The website is www.theroyalpartyroom.com

If you were in Tallahassee, you could do it at the Junior Museum, Optimist park, or Tom Brown Park.

You didn't say what you've looked at so far and why it won't work... Keep in mind that the party is for a 4 year old. The older kids will need to keep that in mind and not expect to be entertained in a way that is age appropriate for them, in my opinion. Try Monkey Joes or one of those other blow up places. I have no idea where you live so I don't know specifically what is available in your area. When my kids were little, we usually did a park-- even for the February birthday when it was cold and rainy-- the kids loved bundling up and huddling under the pavillion until the rain stopped! When my daughter turned 3, we did a party at the mall and took a few kids (and one parent each) to see Finding Nemo when it first came out. They had a party room for the movie theatre, but we didn't want to pay all that extra money just for a party room. So we got pizza at the food court and brought a cake and they went to the movies. It was fun, but I have to say that was probably my least favorite of all of my kids' parties because there wasn't enough opportunities for the kids to play and interact like they do at the park.

How about a tea party? Every age girl likes to get all dressed up

Build-A-Bear!!!

We do this almost every year. Not only are all ages covered, but the "favor" is the bear! Lots of fun and ranges from $10 per child and up. Then we go up to the food court, have cake and open gifts, and go home...

Lots of fun, lots of room, cost depends on how many invited, and clean up is a breeze! :)

You could also do Pump it up...for about $250 and up, all those age ranges can play on the equipment, then there is a party room for cake and gifts! :) They take care of everything...and YES! Teens love it too!

Just some ideas...:)

Have you thought of a childrens museum or zoo? Another option could be to contact your local scrapbooking consultant to see if she can host a scrapbooking workshop for the girls. Some may be able to accomodate simpler tecniques for the smaller children and a little bit more complex ones for the preteens. Check under Creative Memories or Close to my Heart websites to find out. If scrapbooking is too much, check with other moms and see if you can do a "crafts birthday". I hope this helps and Happy Birthday!
