Hit the Bowling Lanes
Maybe it’s the silly shoes or the thrill of scoring a strike, but bowling parties are always a classic. Even the adults might be tempted to get a lane and test their skills.
And as an added bonus, most bowling alleys have snack bars on site, which means that it’s easier than ever to feed a crowd.
Skate the Night Away
It doesn’t matter if you’re totally clumsy. In fact, trying to stay on your feet is half the fun at a skating party.
Go retro and head to the roller rink, where the kids can lace up their skates and glide under the disco lights. The local ice rinks are another great option, where the kids will have hours of frosty fun.
Make a Masterpiece
Your little artist can let their creativity shine with a birthday party at one of NEPA’s art studios and DIY venues. These locations offer tons of different projects, from painting a canvas to making slime. The kids can even build their own stuffed animals or decorate a batch of cupcakes.
Art Studios & DIY Workshops:
Celebrate with the Silver Screen
Every kid deserves movie star status on their special day. Throw a red-carpet party at one of NEPA’s local theaters, where the birthday fun meets the big screen. The kids will have a blast munching on popcorn, slurping down slushies and watching the latest releases.
Throw a Mind-Blowing Birthday
Think outside the box and book a party that encourages the kids to explore and use their brainpower.

These venues are perfect for curious kids.
