It’s fun to have a party to celebrate birthdays. With little ones it can get tricky to plan something that is fun and not scary or just too overwhelming. Here are some suggestions from the moms if you’re looking to throw a party someplace else and just show up with the cake:


My Gym
Private party for up to 10, 18 or 25 kids

The Little Gym
Private party

  • We did the little gym and the kids had a blast. I didn’t have to do anything but bring the cake!
  • They did a really great job! The kids had fun, staff was very helpful getting to/from car with everything, engaged the kids during playtime, one of our best parties!

I’ve been to 2 birthday parties there (Plano) and it was fun!

Our daughters birthday is in December. You buy a craft or several different crafts in the store for the number of kids you will have. We did Christmas ornaments, and the birthday party is in the store in a room of their own. Their craft is their gift. You bring your own cake, ice cream or whatever you are going to serve.
