Winter Indoor Birthday Party Ideas

Hi. I am looking for recommendations for indoor birthday parties for an 8 and 5 year old. My kids bdays are in Jan and Feb and, while I would love to have it outside, I don't want to take the chance of the weather not being good. They want to invite their whole class so I need something indoors that can accommodate about 30 kids. Thanks so much for any suggestions you can share!

Parents, want to reply to this question? Sign in to post. -- This place has a maximum limit of 25 kids. This would work for your older child but not your younger one. -- Bowling is fun for both 8 and 5 year olds. 30 kids should not be a problem. -- Gymnastics up to 25 kids -- up to 50 kids -- Athletic playground 

We went to an indoor community center party. There were race tracks made by cardboard boxes and kids got toy cars to play with and as a party favor. Cupcakes, snacks and simple decorations and painting the car as an activity. Another indoor community center / Rec room party I went to had a magician who performed and they had party games.

You can rent the Arlington Park rec room fairly inexpensively. We did that once and had a double party for both kids with a space theme and activity stations, got a friend to bring his guitar and play some songs for the kids. The kids like running in and out of the room into the park and it's not crowded or noisy.
