Kids Birthday Parties in Prince George

by Bailey Bouwman

Every year birthday’s come and go, and every year I do the same scramble of looking for a venue for my children’s birthday party. Each child is a little different and the needs reflect that. Sometimes I’m trying to plan a birthday in the middle of winter, and sometimes the middle of summer.

My daughter is the same but different as my older son. She is fierce and wild, but quiet and curious. Over the years, we’ve attended many birthday parties and hosted a few of our own, but this year feels like the beginning of something different and more unique to her and her soul. For her first birthday, we hosted an outdoor sledding party in our front yard. We dug it out and created a slide for the kids to use that safely slid into the front yard. For her second birthday party, we hosted with four other friends, one big ol’ birthday part at the South Fort George Resource Centre.
