My daughter will turn 2 on the 19th and I wanted to do something special for her. However we really don't have anybody to give our invitation with for a kids party since we are new in this town. We just want her to play and socialize with other kids on her day. Is there any program/activity that gathers kids and host a birthday party? Any suggestions? Please i am all ears...
If she is two years old, the most fun and memorable thing you could do is probably let her play around in the dirt with some other kids. Maybe give her some interesting textures and shapes too, like a bunch of spaghetti noodles.
The Children's Museum at Seattle Center is pretty lame. We had the same exact issue when our son turned 2. What area are you in? If your close to a Spray Park, those are pretty fun & lots of kids running around.
Seems as though all the kid birthday parties I've attended the past few years have been everywhere, but Chuck E Cheese. Sandbox sounds awesome. Some options you may have are jungle gyms, the bouncy house, Children's museum (already mentioned). There's one in Tacoma if that is more convenient for you. You can even do a pool party at the Aquatic Center in Federal Way (I'm sure other public pools have this option). The Aquatic Center has a kid section with a huge pirate ship in the middle and it squirts water everywhere. You wouldn't have to worry about kids drowning because they have lifeguards & there's a part where it starts very shallow and gradually gets deeper. Plus, I'm sure parents will be monitoring. The YMCA in Seatac has a room you can rent with a fully equipped kitchen. There's a baby section for toddlers to crawl and a bigger play area (similar to Chuck E Cheese, but cleaner & newer). You can bring your own food which makes it more affordable. For an even more affordable route... the park. Jefferson Park on Beacon Hill is fairly new and not only a playground, but zip line & water squirting area and tons of sleds. A little bit for everyone... assuming it's a nice day. Good luck!
Aw man I wanted to change my post after re-reading your original thread! I originally skipped the part about the new in town, no party part. Anyway, revised. Sandbox sounds awesome. There are kiddy bouncy houses, jungle gyms, Children's museum (already mentioned). There's a Children's Museum in Tacoma which might be closer for you. The Aquatic Center in Federal Way has a kid section with a huge pirate ship in the middle and it squirts water everywhere. It's appropriate for all ages. Jefferson Park on Beacon Hill is fairly new and not only a playground, but zip line & water squirting area and slides.
I was recently in Spokane and went with my friends and their kids to the Chuck E. Cheese in the valley. It was horrific, like an end-of-the-world apocalypse movie. One of the mothers there had a tattoo depicting a can of Pepsi can, a bottle of Jack Daniels , and a glass with ice and what I assume was supposed to be Jack and Pepsi.
