8 Houston Parks Perfect for Kids' Birthday Parties

Hosting birthday parties for your kids comes with so many choices nowadays. Which indoor playground is best? What kind of cake will be served? What will the decorations be? Will there be entertainment? Can you get away with just not throwing one at all? The answer to the last one is....probably not (unless your kid is turning 3 and under and they won't know the difference anyway.) Our favorite place to host a birthday party is a great park - one with picnic tables so you don't have to bring any, lots of shade, plenty of room to run around, and great playgrounds so the kids don't have a reason to say they are bored.

The good news is, Houston is home to lots of great parks perfect for birthday parties. Here are some of our favorites.

Family-Friendly Escape Rooms Near Philadelphia

If you haven't been to an escape room, you've probably at least seen someone share a photo in your news feed, holding up a sign that says something like, "I escaped!" It's a super fun rainy day, weekend, or even birthday party activity. The gist is simple: Get locked in a room with a bunch of friends (and strangers) and find the clues to work your way out. What makes these rooms even more fun is the choice of themes-anything from classrooms to locker rooms, Harry Potter, and even the 1980s. We recommend you check websites for room themes, as these may be subject to change at any time. Not all escape rooms welcome kids, so we've rounded up some family-friendly escape rooms in the Philadelphia area. And don't forget to check out our post on family-friendly escape rooms in NJ if you'd rather visit a locale in the Garden State.

Kids Bowl Free: Truly Free and Cheap Bowling for Kids All Over LA

My son went to a bowling party recently that sparked an obsession with the game -- and I've since realized that bowling is a really great sport for kids. The ingrained turn-taking structure, team camaraderie, and relaxed competitiveness offer kiddos a dose of sportsmanship at a fun pace. Accommodations like gutter bumpers and starting ramps guarantee success for even the youngest bowlers. Seriously, bowling is like the unsung hero of children's athletics. And it must have been this idea that fueled the creation of Kids Bowl Free, a fantastic nationwide program designed to give youth a constructive way to beat the heat. Read on to find out how your kids can bowl free every day this summer.

What You're Missing If You Don't Know Bob Baker’s Marionette Theater

Seeing a puppet show is not only one of the many fun things kids can do in Downtown LA, it's an experience that a child will remember for life. Here in LA we are lucky to have our local treasure, Bob Baker Marionette Theater, the oldest children’s theater in Los Angeles. Although the founder passed on a few years ago, the puppets carry on his legacy, walking, running, and dancing in front of their audience—and even reaching out to little audience members to pat heads and shake hands. Put your kid's iPad away, because this slice of LA history offers real interactivity that is sure to delight.
