With all the different types of themed parties a parent can throw for their child, it is no wonder why planning a birthday can be so frustrating. From ice skating, swimming, to having a pizza party, the choices are limitless and it can be difficult to continue coming up with creative ideas each year. Out of all the ideas out there, one way that can never go wrong is throwing a bowling birthday party. The kids are sure to have a ball and may roll a strike while they are at it!
From creating invitations, planning decorations and party favors, to ordering the perfect cake and scheduling activities and entertainment, not only can the chaos from doing all this get overwhelming, but the price can as well. That is why throwing a bowling birthday party can be a wonderful way to celebrate and at the same time save a little money. Bowling alleys seem to undercharge in the area of renting out space and a few lanes to people throwing birthday parties. This is good news for the parent that has already spent a ton of money on the other necessities needed and the presents also. A bowling party is rather inexpensive and the cost usually includes shoe rental and bowling for a couple of hours. Many times the bowling alley will give a free t-shirt and a bowling pin to the special birthday child. The bowling pin is really neat because the child can have his friends that attended the party sign it and then he can keep it for a memoir. Some bowling alleys make you pay a flat rate on a per hour basis and others charge by the amount of lanes you need reserved. Because this varies, it is best to just call your local bowling alley.
For parents of young children, bowling parties can still be as much fun for the child, because the parent can request that bumpers be placed on the lanes to ensure that the children will hit the pins and make a score. This way every child leaves feeling like a winner!
So, what other reasons would make a bowling birthday party be the recommended choice for your child? One major reason is that not only are the kids the only ones having fun, but the parents get to have just as much fun as well. Many times the children will have fun in the area of the bowling alley. Make sure to start saving your change! However, even if the bowling center does not have an , the entertainment and recreation from just bowling is enough to keep the young and excitable children busy and occupied from getting into all types of mischief!
Another good thing about having a birthday party outside of the home is that the parent doesn’t have to worry about cleaning up the mess, such as having icing from little fingers all over the walls, juice spilled on the carpet, and popped balloon pieces all over the house only for the dog or a small child to put the pieces in their mouths!
To really get the theme across that you are hosting a bowling birthday party, there are many party shops online that sale bowling invitations, plates, napkins, and cups that look like bowling balls and you could even order a bowling ball cake that has pins as the cake topper or as the candles. However, make sure to check with the bowling alley where you will have your party to see what types of decorations are included before ordering any. A simple, yet great idea is to buy a bag of 12” plain white balloons and use a black permanent marker and draw three black finder holes on them or better yet, you could buy plain black balloons and put some white circle stickers on them. Either way will be a sure hit! Not only is this a cheap idea, but the kids will love playing with them at the bowling alley.
