1. Have a Super Sweet Birthday Party at McFeely’s Gourmet Chocolate

At the party your child and their friends will make chocolate creations that can be customized to be age appropriate for children ages 4 and up.

Kerbers Dairy in North Huntingdon has year round tubing. Kids will get a thrill sliding down the slippery plastic surface. Children must be at least six years old and able to carry the tube by themselves. Birthday party packages can also include miniature golf depending on the time of year.

3. Have the Ultimate Gaming Birthday Party

Let’s face it…kids love video games! Steel City Gamerz offers a new approach to video game birthday parties. They bring their limo-style luxury truck to your house. With 5 wide-screen high definition TV’s and stadium seating, up to 20 kids can play the latest video games at one time.

A Game Coach makes sure everything is running smoothly to make it easier for the parent. At the end of the party, you could keep the gaming theme going and send them home with these Minecraft favors

4. Celebrate Their Artistic Side at Corks and Canvases

Art birthday parties are great way to customize the party to your child. At Corks and Canvases in Irwin and Corks and Canvases in Murrysville, children ages 3 and up can pick from a wide selection of canvas painting designs. If you are looking for a particular design to match your theme, Corks and Canvsases will design a new painting just for your child. Choose from your favorite characters like princesses or super heroes or go with a seasonal fall or winter scene. With the ability to customize the theme, these parties can appeal to both girls and boys. For younger children, the Greensburg Art Center or Latrobe Art Center will develop an age appropriate craft. Invite your child’s friends to the art party with these customized art invitations from Zazzle. Keep going with the art theme and send them home with these practical, but fun DIY watercolor favors described in this article


5. Keep them Playing with a Sports Birthday Party

When the weather is bad, kids tend to get restless. Sports birthday parties are a fun way to let them run around. Older kids could have a great time if you just rent out courts like the ones at Hempfield Athletic Building which rent for birthday parties for just $100. For a successful party for younger kids, however, you will need more planned activities. Not a sports expert? Soccer Shots Laurel Highlands facilitates soccer birthday parties for children ages 2 to 8. They will plan one hour of age appropriate games and sports skills. Soccer Shots Laurel Highlands services eastern Westmoreland (includes Latrobe and Greensburg), Somerset and Cambria Counties. Go big with the sports theme with these sports birthday plates or these sport ball lollipops.

6. Play at the PartyZone or Have a Roller Skating Party at the Murrysville SportZone

Kids will have tons of fun climbing and sliding in the PartyZone at the Murrysville SportZone. Unlike many other indoor play spaces for birthday parties, you get this indoor play space for your private use, at a reasonable rate. The birthday package includes pizza and a customizable cake, delivered straight to your party, so planning the party is a cinch. In addition to the PartyZone, the Murrysville SportZone also offers other types of birthday packages. Try a roller skating party and let your party guests skate their hearts out. Hockey or soccer more up your child’s alley? They have sports packages as well.

7. Let Them Be American Ninja Warriors at Steel City Parkour

Kids love the hit TV show American Ninja Warrior. Why not host your child’s birthday party at Steel City Parkour in Export? Kids can enjoy 90 minutes of fun and games in this facility with unique features like the area’s only warped wall and giant foam pits. Your little ninjas will love these ninja warrior themed party plates and this ninja warrior cupcake stand.

8. Imagine It’s Summer and Have a Pool Party

Just because it’s not summer doesn’t mean you can’t pretend like it is! Host an indoor pool party at the Aerobic Center in Greensburg and swim those winter blues away. You could really pretend like it’s summer and go with a luau theme. Or make them happy the party wasn’t in the ocean with these cool shark favor bags. Pool parties also lend themselves to a theme involving your child’s favorite aquatic character like the Little Mermaid or the Octonauts.
