One of the most difficult things to consider when planning a party is WHERE you should have the party.

Most people don't want to spend a lot of money on a location, but there are some great kids birthday party places that are both economic and fun.

One thing you should consider, however, is including your child in choosing the location if you are having the party away from your home.

It is a good idea to offer a few suggestions that you are comfortable with and have them choose one from your list.

Regardless of location, most kids just want to make sure that they have fun on their special day and that they can blow out the candles and open the gifts at the end of the party.

Just make sure the location you choose allows you to do these important birthday traditions.

Here are a few kids birthday party places that you should consider:

Town Park Shelter

If you have a park close by to your home, it is very likely that there is a rental shelter available where there are picnic tables and often barbeque facilities.

Not only that, there is usually play equipment for the kids to keep them entertained.

This is a great set-up because the kids can go play while the adults visit. You can keep the menu simple with barbeque items such as hot dogs or hamburgers, salad, chips, and soft drinks.

Fast Food Restaurants

There are various food chains that offer play places for kids. You can often reserve a location for low costs.

This is a great alternative if you don't want to have to prepare the food yourself, and there is obviously the accessible entertainment.

Children's or Science Museum

If you are working with a larger budget, you may want to think about holding your party at a museum.

Not only is this fun, but also a learning experience. Some museums have party hostesses and may provide some supplies for your party. The only thing you may need to bring is the cake!

Movie Theater

If you live in an area where there is a discount theater, it is very likely that they will rent out the theater to you or offer a group discount. Check your local discount theater to see if they offer any party packages.

Neighborhood Club House

If you live in a planned community it is very likely that there is a club house that you can reserve for free or for a minimal cost. This will provide more space for your party and still provide an easy location to get to.

There are various kids birthday party places that you can choose from. These are just a few ideas to help you get started on choosing a location. Good luck!
