When planning a birthday party for your kiddo this winter, it can seem like your options are limited. Not so, we say! Whether you decide to bundle up and head outdoors or stay in somewhere warm and dry, here are 5 awesome places in Metro Vancouver to celebrate your winter baby.

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t have a birthday party outside. Pack those kids up and hit Mount Seymour! Kids can choose from 2 hours of tubing, tobogganing or snowshoeing and then get a delicious lunch and three hours private use of the cozy Mongolian Yurt. Perfect for the adventurous kid.

We frequently wish we could run away to the circus. But when that isn’t a possibility, we think Club Avivia might be the next best thing. Trampoline, tumble track, sponge pit and more fill out this activity packed birthday extravaganza. Birthday parties here are ideal for the energy filled kiddo who loves to run and bounce and fly!

We must admit, we love tea parties with tiny sandwiches, scones and clotted cream, and dainty plates. Delightful. But what we really love about Neverland Tea Salon is that their tea parties are the stuff of dreams, complete with dress-up, storytelling and theatrical games. In Neverland you may never grow up – but that doesn’t mean birthday celebrations are off the table. They’ll even bring the tea party to you! A tea party birthday is perfect for the kiddo that loves to play make-believe.

Laserdome Plus is an activity centre for all ages. Most famous for its four-level, 7,500 square foot laser tag arena, it also hosts three rock-climbing walls with a total of 14 auto-belay lines to accommodate large groups. With a large soft-padded jungle gym for younger children to enjoy and other unique offerings, this North Vancouver landmark is the perfect party destination for that the super active kiddo.

Just because it’s snowing outside, doesn’t mean you can’t hit the beach! 6Pack Indoor Beach is home to 18,000 heated square feet of sandy beach where kids can choose from beach volleyball, dodgeball, soccer, rugby, handball, ping pong, Frisbee, sand castle building, parachute, tug-o-war, or even have a treasure hunt! This is the perfect place to host a party for your little beach bum.

The Hive is the perfect birthday party destination for the Ninja warrior in training. Each party is 2 hours long and includes a short introduction with warm-up games, a lesson in climbing and falling safely and climbing time tailored to suit the group. Ideal for any group of kiddos aged 6 and up that wants to reach new heights!
