Have you got a wacky warehouse or some kind of indoor play area near you? A bit pricey but worth it cos all the mess stays there and not in your house!
#2
where do u live?
#3
Yeah we have a wacky warehouse, might be worth looking into, thanks, we live in Leicester

Usually 5.99 or 6.99 per head for 2 hours play plus something and chips.

A trampoline! our son has so much energy!

You could rent a village hall for the afternoon and put up the bouncy castle in there. That way you are covered in case of rain. We did that and there was a play ground just outside as well. So you can do all party games and eating inside.

What about an entertainer? Works out a bit more expensive but if you get a good one they're worth every penny. Have been to a few and some at toddler groups and they manage to keep 2 year olds interested for an hour so 3 year olds should be fine. We have friends that live between Loughborough and Leicester and they had someone called Jeffrey Jumper for their daughters 5th birthday and he was really good with puppets, magic and basically just being silly which had them all (ranging from 2 up to 8) giggling and shouting for the whole party. Perhaps you could find him in the yellow pages or something, alternatively just ask round for recommendations. I have a 3 year old and a 7 year old daughter and have done them all, parties at home, at wacky warehouse places and ourselves in halls but the best was when we had a circus entertainer this year, far less stressful and the kids were talking about it for ages.

Seeing as he is only 3 it won't really matter, most kids love nothing other than balloons, pass the parcel, and **** food. lol. i.e. party food. :)
My twins 4th birthday 2 weeks today and that's what they'll be having, last year I can get away with it I think before they demand a party. lol

Do you have a snow-dome type place anywhere near, they can go tobogganing, and have a kids party :-D

We have x-scape close to Leeds

Some great ideas there, thanks everyone, will get looking at whats available, i like the entertainer idea, and the snow dome but i think the snow dome is a little far from us

Just had another thought regarding our friends who live near Leicester (trying to rack my brains as to where their daughters parties have been), they had a farm party for a 4th birthday near Rothley somewhere (my daughter was only 18 months old and loved it), a soft play party at the Wacky Warehouse at Syston, same at a cinema precinct that was not far from Fosse Park and I think it was called Billy Bears, really huge place that was just a soft play & climbing area that they all loved. This year they're having a disco party in Lynrays at Loughborough but your child is probably a bit young for this.

Hope this helps, sorry my descriptions aren't much better but you know what it's like, you just drive up to these places, I could get to them all but can't remember exactly what they're called.

thanks annie1508, some good ideas there and i know most of the places u mean x

My boy's 4 and he chooses a play area everytime!

You're welcome. I know how much thought goes into parties. I don't know if you're like me but I always want to do something a bit different. My eldest daughter goes to loads of play area parties and don't get me wrong, she really loves them but everyone has there party there nowadays and it seems a little too easy, I lije to totally stress myself out trying to do something a bit different that most of their friends haven't done before and they then talk about it for days. The circus entertainer we had was from Lincoln where we live - check out http://feetfirst.freeuk.com/feetfirst/ which is their website as he travels across the country and now does this full time. Our daughter was 7 but he does different parties depending on their age and again, my 3 year old loved it, we paid to have him for an extra hour (£80 for first hour, £30 each hour thereafter but might add fuel charge on) and he entertained them throughout dinner too and then at the end of the party we asked the parents to come 15 minutes earlier and he puts a show on for them so they can see what they've learnt at the party (which wasn't a whole lot but they were trying bless them) and about 8 parents them took his name for their child's party. They did tightrope walking, stilt walking, juggling, diablo and plate spinning but like I said, he alters it for the age of the child so could probably do something different for 3 year olds or keep in your memory bank for future years, thoroughly recommended.

Also, whilst I appear to be rambling on somewhat, try [url]www.netmums.co.uk[/url] as they always have lots of party ideas from other mums, a whole section is dedicated to it.

Good luck, I'm sure your little one will appreciate the effort you are putting into this parties (eventually)!!!
