Birthday Party Venue Ideas

I want to start off by saying that there is nothing wrong with having some kids over to hang out, play pin the tail on the donkey, maybe do a piñata (hint- look for the pull string and not the baseball bat required kind), eat cake, and go home happy. 

However, I know that with the advent of “you must invite the whole class” rules, sometimes you just cannot fit everyone in your house.  Or, perhaps you just would rather pay the money and not have to deal with setup and cleanup.  I feel that, too 🙂 

Here are some of our mom’s favorite ideas (and ours, too!) for birthday parties! 

VENUES:
Animated Child
Had a Minecraft party for my child at Animated Child in Montclair. Had about 12 boys who had a ball. 
 Animated Child rocks!

Chick Fil A-
Chick Fil A has the best deal

Chinn Park- 
 Chinn has birthday party packages that worked for us. You get a party leader, pool time or moon ounce, and room time with the party leader running games if you wish.

Chuck E Cheese- 
Take advantage of their weekday parties for lower rates.  Do an early afternoon party after school or watch the calendar for teacher workdays and holidays! 

CiCi’s Pizza-
CiCi’s for a birthday party at about that age….a kid’s buffet is a great price and there is a cute grassy area / pavilion behind it to sit and open presents on a nice day.

Edgemoor Art Studio- 
We LOVED Edgemoor Art Studio. Might be considered pricey at $275, but we would have spent WAY more than that at our house… and she goes ALL OUT

Engineering For Kids
Went to Engineering for Kids party in Woodbridge this weekend. My son had a blast.

Gymnastics World-
Gymnastics World makes an active structured gymnastics party. Afterwards, you sit picnic table style and eat your own treats. I believe goodie bags are included.

Hello Karate-
Www.hellokarate.com you can have as many kids as you want the provide everything you only need to bring the cake. They provide pizza drinks plates napkins everything. They do a karate demo, teach the kids and give kids each a board and teach them to break it 

House of Bounce Manassas

Joann Fabrics-
The craft lady at Joanns does a great job at hosting birthday parties.

Jumping Jimmy’s-
Jumping Jimmys. Monday through Thursday is 115 for 10 kids includes bouncing and pizza for 1 1/2 hours.
Jumpnjimmys in Haymarket and little gym in Gainesville

Kids N Motion-
Kids N Motion. Not sure what their rates are but we went there yesterday for the first time and my 5 year old and 2 year old had a blast. 
We did Kids in Motion and the kids loved it!! We did the bouncy rooms,then we had cake and drinks and party favors……..the kids had a great time.

Laser Quest
Definitely Laser Quest in Woodbridge!
 Preschool age kiddos seemed to have had a blast at All that Jazz in Montclair & SwimKids-Woodbridge. We also attended fun parties at Youth & Sports in Dale City. My older son absolutely enjoyed Laser Quest.

Leesylvania State Park

The Little Gym

Magic Putting Place-
Once open, the putt-putt golf course and Nathan’s on Mathis drive. Think it is about $8 per child and that includes round of mini golf, pizza, soda, and a small cone. I much prefer the pay per child method rather than $200+ for up to 25 kids at places like indoor bounces. Plus, kids as young as that tend to get overwhelmed if it is too big of a celebration, that’s been my experience anyway.

Majest Martial Arts

Michaels Arts and Crafts-
Michael’s. Room rental is 50 dollars. You can bring your own food, cake, etc. 

NOVA BMX
See our PwcMoms review here. 

Pizzeria Uno-
Pizzeria uno does kids bday parties. They can make their own pizza. Dough is premade. With drink I think it’s 5.00 per child.

Premier Martial Arts

Prince William County Parks (Outdoor)-
 Great alternative: rent a pavilion at a local park (reserve now). For example, for my son’s 4th party, rented a Long Park Pavilion for $60 — let the kids run around with dollar store bubbles, beach balls, pinwheels, etc. before eating and cake/presents, also had a playground suitable for their age. Like home, but mess is outside! Note: that time of year, schedule for noon or later, after the soccer games.

Plan you child’s party at SplashDown Waterpark, the largest waterpark in Northern Virginia. Deluxe and standard packages available or just come as a group… We take the work and worry out of this special day..Call Aimee Burke at 703-361-4451 ext. 226. Want a catered event-call me 703-361-4451 ext. 222.

Pump it Up Manassas-

Sport and Health Kids Club-
Sport and Health had an amazing area and good packages
Sport and health in Gainesville. So many things to do, they are super nice, and lots of room.
Sport and Health in Woodbridge is excellent!! I didnt have to lift a finger and the kids were able to swim for 45 minutes.


SwimKids
 Preschool age kiddos seemed to have had a blast at All that Jazz in Montclair & SwimKids-Woodbridge. We also attended fun parties at Youth & Sports in Dale City. My older son absolutely enjoyed Laser Quest.

Toddlin Time Manassas

Tumbling Time-
Check out the new timble time part of all that jazz ms christy from gymboree is running it its at the back of montclair.
