    Default How much would you spend

    I'm interested to find out from parents:

    How much would you spend on your kids bday party? Say from age 8 and up?

    So the spend would be on 'entertainment' for the kids.

    Eg like hiring a clown (or similar - I personally hate clowns but couldn't think of anything else)

    The entertainment would be for roughly 1-1.5 hours.

    Not a 'babysitting' service

    And it would be an activity that the kids would do, and they would get to keep what they made

    Is it something you would consider for your kids party?

    Default How much would you spend

    We are hiring out a gymnastics venue and teacher/party host for DDs 6th birthday party this year.
    It goes for 2 hours and the host takes them through planned activities and games for the duration.
    It is $15 per child for 10-15 children and $20 per child for 15-20 children.

    That's no food or drinks..
    It's out first kids party where we have had anything other than a home party with normal party games so hope it works out okay.

    We have a $150 limit. From about 8 we tend to movies/bowling etc with a few friends rather than a party.

    I have hired a Fairy (which was fantastic) and jumping castles. The average hire fee for both was about $250 each plus then all the food, decos etc. I have also done Lollipops which was about $19 a head. We have been to a Bowling Party and a Motiv8 party. The latter was recent and absolutely fantastic. It went for 3 hours and it was all different sports activities. The rest have been either Maccas, Hungry Jacks, Lollipops or at their home.

    I would absolutely look at different options. Are you looking at doing something?
