Kids love birthday parties, but they can sometimes be a lot of work. Sometimes you’re just too busy to spend a lot of time planning a party, cleaning the house, decorating, planning games, and cleaning up. If you want to throw a fun party for your child, but don’t want the hassle of putting a party together, there are many places in Phoenix that you can take your child. Here are a few fun ideas.
A lot of kids love gymnastics. If you are throwing a birthday party for a child aged four to twelve, you might consider throwing a party at Southwest Gymnastics, located at 4930 Ash Avenue in Tempe. They provide the entertainment (one hour inside the gym, and another half hour in the party room), goodie bags, and balloons. All the parents need to do is provide food, drinks, cake, ice cream, and paper products. The gym is fully equipped with a trampoline floor, tumble track, foam pit, and climbing ropes. The coaches organize fun, age-appropriate activities, including parachute games. Staff members also will keep track of who gave what gifts, and will clean up.

If you have a younger child, they might enjoy a gymnastics birthday party at The Little Gym. The Little Gym doesn’t have as much equipment as Southwest Gymnastics does, but they will do parties for younger children. The Little Gym will provide The Little Gym invitations, paper products, a T-Shirt for the birthday child, and will do a gift registry for your child. They will set up and clean up the party, and provide coaches to keep the party going. There is more than one Little Gym location. You can find the gym nearest you and find party information at their web site at thelittlegym.com.
Pizza and Games
When you think about kids’ birthday parties, you often think about Chuck E. Cheese. Kids like to eat pizza, and they like to play all the games there. Chuck E. Cheese doesn’t have the best pizza, but the kids don’t care. A birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese will get your child a birthday star to wear, a bouquet made out of foil balloons and a mini lunch box, and the birthday girl or boy will get 100 tickets. Chuck E. Cheese will set up and clean up your party. For the adults attending the party that don’t care for the pizza, Chuck E. Cheese now has different food platters that you can buy. If you book your party online at chuckecheese.com, you will get twenty free tokens.
Amazing Jakes also has pizza, but it also has an all-you-can-eat buffet with pastas, salads, and a potato bar. You can also have as much dessert as you want, and as much soda as you can drink. Amazing Jakes has a lot of games and activities that will be attractive to older children, including a bowling alley, go-karts, bumper cars, miniature golf, and a mini roller coaster.
