When it comes to planning your child’s birthday party things can get stressful. You want them to love it. You want their friends to have a great time. Maybe you secretly want the other kids to say “You’re parents rock!” or “This is the best party EVER!” We love at-home birthday parties because of the versatility with theme, decor, games and entertainment. Everything can be customized to your child’s interests, hobbies and the year’s big trends.

1) Rooks to Cooks
Do you have a little chef in the making? Rooks to Cooks provide in-home cooking lessons for your party. They bring all the ingredients and specialty equipment needed for the menu and you finish with a tasty meal or snack. Some of the classes offered include making doughnuts, lollipops, pizza and sushi. Custom packages can also be created that are tailored to your child’s favourite foods. The lesson typically lasts 1-2 hours and usually have a minimum age requirement of ages 5-6.
2) Games on Wheels
We all know the age. That age when prying little hands off of the computer, iPad or video game seems almost impossible. So why not bring the games to you? Games on Wheels brings the arcade to you in a climate controlled bus filled with all your favourite consoles and games. They even have audio effects and LED lighting to enhance the experience. All they need is a place to park.
If you are up for having some creepy crawlies in your house try Reptilia! They bring a variety of reptiles such as snakes, lizards, spiders and turtles for a live demonstration. The 45 minute demo will give the kids a chance to hold, pet and take pictures with the reptiles while learning more about them and their habitats.
