Children view birthdays differently than adults: while kids are excited to get older, grownups move more into the denial stage. But not the young – they run toward age with grins and giggles and Nerf guns a’blazing. What this means for the parent(s) is simple: kids want a good party and it’s up to you to throw one.
Fortunately, Seattle abides. There’s plenty of unique and fun places for a get-together in our city and surrounding areas. Consider one of the following:
Great Play of Redmond
Great Play of Redmond offers six different party themes with each one age specific. They range from Super Hero Party to Olympic Party and cater to kids up to ten years. You can also customize the party if you prefer. The party packages include a photo greeting on a giant scoreboard, coach-led activities, play in the Interactive Arena, and an awards ceremony at the end.
Equine Solutions is a riding and education center that offers lessons for both kids and adults. They also offer summer camps that allow children to interact with horses and other farm animals. Their birthday parties are all year long with a riding arena located indoors.
Farrel-McWhirter Farm School
Farrel-McWhirter Farm School is ideal for children who want to get back in touch with their roots (or just have a particular fondness for dirt). The school teaches agricultural education for kids over the age of two through adult. They offer birthday parties that are a bit more out-of-the-box than the local pizza joint.
Just Frogs and Friends
It’s not too difficult to figure out what Just Frogs and Friends features – it’s an amphibian center that double as a non-profit educational facility. The focus of the organization is to take in and rescue unwanted amphibians and reptiles. A few of the things offered include educational pet care, adoption programs, safe interaction lessons, private tours, craft classes, and birthday parties.
All That Dance
All that Dance offers birthday parties for a wide variety of ages. From hip hop and swing dance parties for the older kids to music and art activities for the younger, the facility works to accommodate different styles and interests. It’s located inside Seattle’s Wedgewood neighborhood.
Birthday parties are important to kids, making them important to parents, too. In Seattle, there’s a lot to choose from. Yep…there’s a lot to assure your child’s birthday is indeed a happy one.
