Hey homeskillet! It's amazing how many things you can do! It's soo fun when they get older and you can do those fun things. Chance LOVED the bowling party he had.

There is also Pump it Up in Burnsville. http://www.pumpitupparty.com/

Chance had his at Edinborough this year, you guys been there yet? (He had his school friends to this one. He's getting to that age.) http://www.edinboroughpark.com/

Nature centers have themed parties too. What is Adan into right now? Depends on how much you want to spend too. I checked into the MOA and Underwater World for Chance and they are spendy as heck. The Children's Museum also does b-day parties. Have fun deciding! Kid's birthday parties are soo fun. I love picking out stuff for the goody bags. :-)

The zoo in my area hosts birthday parties. They charge about the same , if not cheaper then, Chucky Cheese. They usually include the food and special things for the kids to do.

When my kids were that age, we had the party at home and did a "color" themed party - my daughter loved red, so we asked all of the children to dress wearing red to the party...then all the food was red (think bbq chips, hot dogs, red grapes, red peppers, etc) and the stuff in the games and the loot bags were also red - totally easy party to pull off with stuff from the loonie store as well, so it can be quite reasonable!

We did a Pirate theme this year and the kids had a great time. The craft and party stores now have so many pirate things to make the party fun! Instead of a pinata, try a treasure chest the kids can go through and pick items out of. That way they can fill their goodie bags. You can make a treasure map up for them as well, for a craft you can make easy eye patches using yarn and cut out construction paper. Whatever you do, have fun!

I guess I'm a mean mommy! LOL My son will be 4 in January and we will do the same as we did the last 3 years: family and a couple of close friends over for snacks and cake.

A friend recently did an Army obstacle course for a boy party. They hit the dollar store and bought camo stuff and did an obstacle course in the backyard... The boys had a great time!

Anything that doesn't require the other parents to fork out more cash than they already have for the gifts.



Bowling & pizza should be great.

I don't know about where you are from, but in the town where I live we have inflatables/jumpers. They can cost anywhere from about $50 (for smaller inflatables) to over $100 (for larger ones) a day. Sometimes you can be charged hourly if you don't want it ALL day. They are normally a huge hit with kids! AL you need is cake & pizza & the party will be a success! And depending upon where you live October 1s tshould still be fairly warm during the day! Hope this helps!

A friend of mine did bowling and pizza... but she made it a "western" themed party where the little ones dressed up as cowboys and cowgirls.. it was really cute.
