Are You Planning a Birthday Party for a Colorado Kid?


Planning a birthday party can be hard work. Unless you want to shell out a lot for a party, you may need to put some thought into a quality and thrifty party. Luckily, Colorado has lots of options for fun events for kids. Read below for some of my favorite ones.

  • Time to Get Wet

There is almost nothing better than eating some birthday cake and immediately running and jumping into the pool. Unfortunately, not everyone can find a place to swim at all times during the year, but we take what we can get. Assuming your kid and his friends know how to swim, and there is a lifeguard on duty, pool parties make excellent themes. Kids and parents alike enjoy them because the Colorado sun is brutal when it is out in full force. And pool parties can be extremely cheap if you already have access to a pool. If not, don’t worry, it is still quite affordable to rent one for a party. It’s always good to take advantage of the summer when you can. Our window for such activities is quite limited in Colorado, and because of this, the pool party comes in at second in the top birthday party ideas.

  • Racing in Style

Though indoor go kart racing takes place inside, and your kids will be sitting down driving throughout the activity, it still ranks number one. The thrill of modern go karts is extreme. You can throw out the notion that these things are only for the wee ones because a lot of their clientele are adults. It is so enjoyable getting into these little mini-racecars and whipping around turns. Because the karts are so low to the ground, the kart won’t roll over. At worst you might bump into a rubber railing or spin out after taking a turn too sharply. The racetracks also often cater to parties, so you have the option of renting a room or catering food or drinks. It is truly amazing how exhilarating it can be to get do a few laps. Even though the races are relatively quick, it feels much longer when you are doing it. Every turn and every second matters, so time seems to slow down. Once you finish you are left with a lot of adrenaline and a pure sense of joy. This is equally fun for the parents and the kids, and because of this, it lands on the list for the best birthday party ideas.

  • Let's Roll Dude

Bowling is classic. Bowling is almost always fun. If you can ignore the grimy floors, rented shoes, and seedy types of people that always seem to hang around bowling alleys, your boy is sure to have a blast with his friends. Bowling alleys are open year round and cater to birthday parties quite well, as it provides a large portion of their bottom line. The only real drawback is that bowling isn’t too exciting. If you love bowling and you do it often, you can certainly get into it. But if you are like most people who bowl maybe a couple games a year, chances are that it can get monotonous. You throw a ball. It rolls. Some pins fall down. Not too much is left up to the imagination. It is, however, consistent and cheap, and you can typically get everything you need in one place (even the alcohol for the parents.) Because of this, bowling makes the list for birthday party ideas for Colorado kids.


If your son is having a party soon, I truly hope you chose one of these options. They are all fairly easy to plan, and they can all be a whole lot of fun. So if you are serious about throwing an unforgettable party for your son, plan it around an activity that the will love.
