Help! with Ideas for My Kids Birthday Party ! We Live in the Rowlett Area
I need to find a place where I can have my kids party together. One is 10-boy other 3-girl. I like the pottery idea, but its 12.00 for each child (for a cup) and I have 19 kids (all relatives). That doesn't include cake and ice cream. I'm tried of Skating, Peter piper, chuckie cheese, swimming parties. I've done all of these.. So ladies please help!!! Any ideas!!!

How about a place like Pump it Up or Bounce Towne? I am not sure what is close to you, but these places are a real crowd pleaser. Also, we just got invited to a party at a place in Plano called The Clubhouse for Kids. Check out their website at www.clubhouseforkids.com. GoodLuck!!

Bounce parties - there is a Jump and Jive in Rockwall and another of the same type place in Forney. We have been to one party there (for a 3 year old girl) and everyone had fun - we all jumped. It is entirely indoors - they provide cake, punch, party room, paper goods, etc.

Frontier's Flight Museaum at Love Field. Or it may be cheaper to buy a bounce house at Cost Plus or Sam's and have a party in your own back yard.

Have a backyard carnival. Since you should have plenty of adult relatives there, they can run each of the games. Just think of all the games that are usually at a fall carnival like the cupcake walk, lollipop tree, duck pond, ring toss, or face painting. Give each kid a color-coded ticket to "pay" for each game (i.e. duck pond is blue) for a party favor prize, then they can play as many times later for just candy. The best part of this is that they actually get to play games for the goodie bags. You can even do other themes instead of clown. We had a ballerina carnival for my daughter and hot wheel carnival for my son.
