My oldest son turned 7 last week and we celebrated his birthday party last weekend. I booked his party at a local nature preserve. We were given the use of a building and a staff member to take the kids through tons of activities! Yay for me, someone else to lead the oodles of kids on activities!
We started with a staff-led nature craft indoors,
then headed out for a hike on a trail. The kids got to use magnifying glasses and binoculars on parts of the hike.
Ended the outdoor portion with a special game, then headed into the nature center for indoor play.
After the staff-led activities, we ushered the kids back to the party room for the awesome cupcakes my mother-in-law made (she even let the boys help!).
Then on to gifts, lots of screaming & running around, then back outside for a campfire and s'mores.
Lots of fun! To anyone living in my area, birthday parties, family days, outdoor adventure, or hiking at Oakdale Nature Preserve are a great idea!
We all had a great time, despite the rainy, dreary weather. I'll take temperatures in the high 40s anyday after a long winter! It's nice to be outside again.
Thanks to all the kids for coming!
