Cool 7 Yr. Old Birthday Party Ideas

My neice is turning 7 and my sister doesn't want to break the bank - any ideas for a cool party - out of home? They live in Toronto.

For our oldest's we hired a look-a-like to entertain the kids at home. She sang (karaoke) to them, did their hair and makeup and danced with them. She also signed autographs. This cost us $150, plus pizza (Costco) and cake (DQ). As loot bags I scored on inflatable chairs for $3 a piece at Party Packagers. There were 20 girls invited. You can easily scale this back.

Our other daughter chose paint you own pottery. We budgeted a $15 per child party, had cake and juice for 10 kids.

Another idea is to take a look at Michael's craft ideas and do a craft party. The kids love doing crafts at that age.
See this button :confused: :confused: Learn how to use it PLEASE ;)

Very creative ideas, thanks. That's something I would do - not my no-nonesense sister. I think she's thinking about taking them somewhere. They leave on a trip the next day.

What about a local farm or equestrian centre for pony rides? We did that and it was a hit. Not too expensive if I recall.

As a kid, we had bowling parties which were always fun.

Other (in the house parties) included getting a clown, a magician, doing a waterpark party in the backyard...
