Indoor Birthday Parties

on November 11, 2013

Do your kids have a birthday coming up? Both of my babies have December birthdays, so an indoor party is a must.  And if you’re like me, the thought of hosting a children’s party in my home is a little overwhelming! Luckily, there are plenty of great indoor birthday party destinations in the South Hills.

Here are some local venues to help get the party started:

Upper St. Clair Community & Recreation Center – Is your winter baby set on having a pool party?  It’s possible, thanks to the USC Rec Center!

Gymboree – You pick your theme – they do the rest!  Includes activities led by a Gymboree teacher.  For ages 0-5.

The Little Gym – Trained instructors will lead birthday party activities for children ages 1-12.

Snapology – For the block-lovers out there, play time in the Discovery Center is made even better with cake and presents in the party room!  **If you’re having an in-home party and looking for entertainment, Snapology will bring the party to you!**  (Read how much we love Snapology here.)

Build-a-Bear – No cheap goodie bags here!  Party guests make their very own bears to take home at a Build-a-Bear party.

Seesaw Center – A space designed just for the little ones – find a new favorite toy at the Seesaw Center, then celebrate with cake in the party room!  (Read about how much we love the Seesaw Center here.)

Gymsport Athletic Center – Trampolines, foam pits, jungle gyms…and if that isn’t enough trained instructors will lead party guests through games and activities appropriate for their age level.

E2 Toys 2 Try – Exclusive use of their indoor playground and a party assistant to lead games and keep the party running smoothly – sounds good to me!

AMF Mt. Lebanon Lanes – Who doesn’t love a bowling party??  Very affordable and fun for everyone!

Ice Castle – Enjoy skating on the ice rink, then warm up in the party room with cake and presents.

Oogles and Googles – A very unique party for those who love to dress up and play pretend!

Fired Up Pottery Studio – Kids who love to create can take home a handmade piece of art from a Fired Up Pottery Studio party.

Lilliput Towne Center – Lilliput’s adorable play town is the perfect setting for your child’s birthday party!

And, if you don’t mind the hike, some venues around the city:

The Children’s Museum
Carnegie Science Center
Pittsburgh Zoo
Color Me Mine
The National Aviary
Sweetwater Center for the Arts
