It can be difficult to find new and interesting ideas for your child’s birthday party. At times it can be easier in the summer to find places to go because there are so many outdoor activities going on. However, during the winter months you and the kids can feel all cooped up with nowhere to go. There are two things that I absolutely love to do with the kids in the winter time because it lifts our spirits and gets us as excited as we are in the summer every day. The first is the indoor water park that’s just up the highway from our home. We definitely love to slap on our bathing suits in the middle of January and ride the slides until we’re exhausted. My second favorite thing to do in the winter time is take the family to the indoor amusement park, complete with rides, games, prizes, concessions, and more candy than anyone could ever need. It makes me feel like a kid again and the rest of my family loves it to because we can run around and play as if it were the middle of July.
An indoor children’s amusement park is certainly something that I am glad exists. When my kids have been pretty good and deserve a reward but the weather outside is forcing us to stay in, we put on our snow boots and brave the winter to get to the place that feels like summer all year long. You can definitely walk in if you’d like without making a reservation, or you can plan a party months in advance if you know it’s coming. But indoor amusement parks are not just for birthdays, it’s a perfect spot for a family of four that just wants to have a little bit of fun some evening. If you do want to book a reservation for a birthday ahead of time, you can usually do that online to make things easier.
The rides that are typically available in most of the indoor amusements that I have seen include carousels, air bounce houses, train rides, swing rides, ferris wheels, fun mirrors, teacup rides, whip rides, and more. There are also tons of games and prizes to check out. The whole experience can include food if you want it to, or it can just be a place to ride a few rides after dinner at home.
One perk that I loved about the indoor amusement park closest to us was that they provided free invitations that can be downloaded from their website. This way you don’t have to worry about writing out your own directions or explaining the details of the party because the park has already done it for you. They also had printable thank you cards for after the party.
So the next time you’re feeling cramped up and depressed in the middle of winter, take my advice and join our family in an evening or day or fun that makes it feel like summer.
