Choosing a Birthday Party Venue

Kids Birthday Party Place Long IslandAre you planning a birthday party in the Long Island area? Throwing a kids’ birthday party at a special venue can be much simpler than hosting at your own home. The best children’s party venues offer all-inclusive party packages and take care of decorations, food, tableware, party activities, and even the theme.

When selecting a venue, much of your preparation can be done by scoping out a party place’s website and exploring the packages available. Make sure you understand exactly what you are getting for your money. Visit your top choice in person to be fully aware of the scope of what the venue offers. If the venue is far away, try to arrange carpool options for the parents of the children attending. Finally, be aware of what the venue offers to protect the children’s safety. For instance, bounce party pros offer several age-appropriate inflatables that are best suited for kids based on their weight and height.

BounceU has been consistently voted Long Island’s best kids’ party place—and for good reason! Visit our website or give us a call at (516) 986-4518 to discover why kids and parents choose us for their birthday party celebrations.

Game Ideas for Your Bounce Rental

If you are planning a bounce party in the Suffolk or Nassau County area, you may want some party game ideas. While any child will enjoy just bouncing around in an inflatable bouncer at a children’s birthday party, it is a good idea to have some organized activities to encourage safe, fun play. Many children are capable of coming up with their own game ideas, but there are a number of classic party games that are exciting to play in a bouncy setting. When supervising children’s playtime in an inflatable bouncer, have these suggestions at the ready to guarantee a genuinely pleasant party.

Capture the Flag
Capture the Flag is a lot more fun in an inflatable bouncer. This classic schoolyard game is played in teams. Each team is assigned a color, and each child wears a flag of that color in his waistband. Larger colored flags are placed equidistant around the inside perimeter of the bouncer. The teams must protect the larger flag and the flags on their waistbands, while also attempting to steal the other teams’ flags. If a child has his flag stolen from his waistband, he is out of the game. The team who collects the most flags at the end of the game wins.

Bounce House Party Long Island

Balloon Games
There are a number of fun balloon games that are easy to play during bounce parties. One simply requires tossing a number of small balloons into the bounce house and letting the kids jump around collecting them. Kids can also be instructed to bat balloons back and forth without allowing them to touch the ground, or play “monkey in the middle” with balloons.

Simon Says
An adult should lead this game, giving the children various commands. If the adult includes the phrase “Simon says” before his command, the children should do what the adult says. If the kids don’t hear “Simon says,” they should not follow the instructions. Any child who follows a command that did not start with “Simon says” is out of the game.

Try one of these great games during your next bounce party or open bounce session at BounceU. As Long Island’s best kids’ party place, BounceU has plenty of fun inflatables for kids of all ages to enjoy. Call us at (516) 986-4518 for more info.


Tips for Planning a Spring Birthday Party

Planning a kids’ birthday party in the spring is a delightful treat. If you live in Long Island or the Farmingdale area, the unpredictability of spring weather may lead you to consider an indoor children’s party to celebrate the big day. If you expect nice weather, a lot of fun outdoor activities can be centered on a spring theme. Explore some of these bright party ideas to get started planning your kids’ party.

Indoor Party Ideas Kids Birthday Party Venue Long Island
An indoor bounce party is a surefire way to entertain guests of all ages, in any weather. There are a number of fun games you can play in inflatable bouncers. Many bounce party locations—like BounceU—have party packages available, which can simplify your planning. You may also consider a movie party, or hiring a magician or costumed entertainer.

Bold Colors and Themes
A spring color palette doesn’t just have to be muted pastels. Think of some bright, bold colors that you can use for your decorations and tableware, and your party will be both sophisticated and fun. Choosing a theme for your party may help inspire your color choices. Investigate some classic children’s party themes from superheroes to princesses, or opt for a theme specific to your child’s interests, be it LEGO, puppies, or butterflies. Decide whether you want to include treat bags for your party guests, and purchase small toys and candy relevant to your theme.

Spring Party Activities
Whether you are celebrating indoors or out, springtime inspires so many party activities. You can have an arts and crafts station where children can create beautiful paper flower bouquets, cute bugs, and colorful butterflies. You may want to set up a cupcake-decorating table, or hire a balloon artist to create spring-themed balloon animals for the children. If the party is outdoors, the kids may want to plant some spring flowers, go on a nature walk, or participate in a scavenger hunt.

BounceU is the perfect place to host a kids’ birthday party, during the spring or at any time of year! You can enjoy private bounce rooms, party rooms, and help from dedicated party pros. We even provide invitations, pizza, beverages, goodie bags, balloons, and cake. Call us today at (516) 986-4518 to reserve your bounce party, or visit us online.


Healthy Snack Recipes for Kids

It can be tempting during a child’s birthday party to only offer sugary finger foods, like cookies and cupcakes. While these treats can be okay in moderation, it’s important that you also have a range of healthy options to offer in order to give children all of the essential nutrients they need when snacking. This video is a great resource for parents or party planners looking for creative and unique ways to incorporate healthy snacks into a child’s diet.

When hosting your kid’s birthday party, considering making a centerpiece out of fruits, like the one in this video. The party experts at BounceU can help you set up all of your arrangements so kids can easily access snacks before and after playtime.
