Throwing a birthday party is always an undertaking. Your child may be begging for a birthday party at an art studio or a laser tag arena, but you may not be up for lugging the cake, the gifts, and the favors to the location. But these days, you can bring the fun to your house, and host a fantastic birthday party for your child and her friends. Just add cake.
Does your child want to hit the arcade for his or her birthday but all you can think of is the giant headache you’ll end up with? Companies like Game Truck will bring a video game theater to your door equipped with HDTVs, gaming systems including Xbox, Wii, and PlayStation, as well as a variety of games. As long as you have a place to park, a video game truck can entertain the kids while you relax.
If you’ve got a child who loves to be pampered you can make her wish come true while avoiding the actual spa. Spa Partyz will bring the spa to you including manicures and pedicures, nail art, facials, and a candy buffet.
Yes, even laser tag can be played without leaving your home. They set it up in your yard and for around $200 you’ve got a laser tag arena for about 20 kids.
Give your little artist the party of her dreams with a mobile art truck. All of the art supplies are included and instructors are there to guide and watch over the children. You can even add on extra fun like cupcake decorating and party favors.
Pony Rides and Petting Zoo
Bring the ponies and the petting zoo to your home. Perfect for you animal lover, (and your newly-fertilized grass).
For your creative child, consider a jewelry party. From clay art beads to traditional beading, it’s a jewelry party that’s just right for kids ages 4 and up. There are even additional options including tie dye t-shirts and magnet clips.
No matter what your child’s current passion is, there’s probably a mobile party that’s just right for her and for you too. There’s less planning, less clean up, and more time for you to have fun.
