Ice Skating Party for Kids

Ice Skating Party for KidsA perfect outdoor winter venue for a party is an ice-skating rink! It is usually quite inexpensive to have a group skate, and facilities typically offer a party room where you can host the lunch/cake/presents. For kids age 6 and up, this is a very good idea. Planning this theme can take as little as 30 minutes as well, so if you don’t have a lot of time and want to hold your party outside of your home, this may be a great idea for you. If so, here are a few suggestions and points to keep in mind as you plan:

Your kids may be developing cabin fever, and are probably looking forward to not only spring blooming, but also summer break. You can give them a little taste of the fun to come by throwing their winter birthday at the local indoor swimming pool.This party can be at a hotel, YMCA, or local gym with an indoor pool available for party rental. It should be pretty easy to find a place to hold your event, and and as kids parties go, easy to put it together!

In your pool party invitation, ask the party guests to bring their swimsuits, a change of clothes, flip flops, and a towel.

Mall Scavenger Hunt

Mall Scavenger HuntMy friend wants to have a mall scavenger hunt for her daughter’s 13th birthday next month, so I’m wondering if you have any great ideas. So far our thoughts are to give them a certain amount of money to acquire the things on their lists, give them riddles or clues rather than straightforward items, and make them bring each item back to us (we’ll be at Starbucks … a central location with coffee) before they get the next clue. We have talked about having the items on the list be the “goody bag” or prizes and possibly awarding points for what they bring … like if they all bring the same thing they get no points but different stores used or something could earn them more points or maybe another winner could have the most change left over. We’re still trying to figure it out. We are also thinking about making them do something but we’re not sure what they could have to do in the mall (and not get in trouble or be really obnoxious). I thought maybe bargain for a better price but I’m not sure the girls could do it, they are still pretty shy. Any great ideas come to mind? We’ve got a month ….

Please note: Make sure to call up your local mall that you plan on holding your Mall Scavenger Hunt and see if this type of event is allowed.  If so, also ask if there are any parameters that you should keep in mind and establish with your group during the Hunt.  You may also want to let the Mall Manager know the time/date of the event as well.
