  1. Lights up musical theater is right up my daughters alley 😍 She would love it for her birthday, which happens to be beginning of November and first double digit bday

  2. What an amazing giveaway. My soon to be 5 year old would love the bricks 4 kidz, he loves lego and spends endless hours creating.

  3. Maplewood farm would be so much fun, i know my son would love the animals and 6pack indoor beach party would be a lot of fun for a January birthday!

  4. This is a hard choice because the bricks for kids is definitely up my oldest sons alley right now but he also LOVES climbing! If I had to choose right now I would choose the climb base because it’s a longer period of time and we recently went rock wall climbing and my oldest son just loved it! This would be a wicked birthday party! Definitely climb base5 all the way! My Son turns 9 December 23rd, this would be absolutely amazing. Thank you for this chance to enter.

  5. Many awesome ideas! I’d love to do a party at Maplewood farm or Treehaus Treehaus (once their physical location is ready). Looking to plan a party for February 2019!

  6. So many wonderful ideas. My daughters birthday is in the winter so 6 pack indoor beach was perfect for a previous birthday. Next we’d love to try a Climb Base 5 party!

  7. What great Ideas! We are just getting ready to plan my daughters birthday! I think she would be tickled to do a cupcake birthday party with Clever cupcakes! Yummy and indulges in her love of baking!

  8. My son’s 10th birthday is in December and it’s always a challenge to find a fun indoor party! I think Lights up Musical Theatre would be awesome! This sounds like so much fun!

  9. All of these places look like they would be an awesome place to have a birthday party but I think my girls would love to have a cupcake party at Clever Cupcakes!!

  10. I would definitely choose Bricks for Kids. My son LOVES Lego and has done the progran through his school and loved it!

  11. My son would be absolutely thrilled with the brainstem learning birthday party experience. He will be turning 7 in a few short months so this would be awesome for us!

  12. So many great parties. Each of my kids would like a different party. My daughter has the next birthday and she would like the brainstorm learning!

  13. My son would love the Indoor beach party for his first birthday! Since it’s in January we could bring the sand to him!

  14. My kiddos birthday is in Feb…always dicey for planning a party due to weather and limitations on places he would love to go. This list is SO helpful!

    I know that as a science kid, he would be torn between the brain stem or LEGO parties. Both great options if he wins 😊

  15. My boys would love the indoor beach, lego, Maplewood farms and the Teahaus mobile art party!! These are some fabulous ideas, especially for my youngest who’s birthday is in December and it’s hard to find affordable, new and fun activities for his party.

  16. With my daughters 2nd birthday coming up we would either love to do the clever cupcakes or the treehaus teahaus. Both would be amazing for an indoor party.

  17. I would love to win the Maplewood Farm birthday party for my daughter! We actually went there for the first time last month and absolutely loved it!! Such a great place for a birthday party!

  18. Forgot to say that I would probably choose the brainSTEM party as I love all the learning aspects involved. Great party ideas!

  19. I think its great to have a choice of party! I won a party a few years back from you but unfortunately was unable to use it as it was appropriate for my kids ages and had to be used within the year. All
    Of these parties sound great- but the brainstem would be best for my older son and teahouse treehouse for my daughter.

  20. My son would be thrilled to have the LEGO themed birthday party by Bricks 4Kidz. And I’d be happy that for once I’m not the one building the LEGO with him!

  21. My 2 kids birthdays are in Nov. This is totally up my alley. They would love a Briks party or a climbing wall party in Coquitlam. Good luck to us 😉

  22. It would be so hard to choose between all these great party ideas. Each one of my four kids would pick something different.
    MapleWood Farms would be fantastic for my soon to 4&2 year-old; Climb base5 for my 6-year-old; Lights up Musical Theatre for my 9 year-Old

  23. My 6 year old daughter would love to celebrate her upcoming birthday at Clever Cupcakes. She loves to help our in the kitchen, and since we eat a plant based diet, the fact that she could make vegan cupcakes is amazing!! These all look like fantastic birthday party options, though. Good luck to everyone!

  24. I would love the 6 pack indoor beach party for 12 kids for my daughter Charlotte because we were unable to do her birthday party earlier this year due to personal circumstances. She’s such a beautiful, kind, considerate human being, everyone in her school will tell you this if you asked.

    She was very understanding about why I could’t afford to do a birthday party for her too in May. I told her that we’ll do her party before the year is over and she said okay mommy, I understand, don’t worry about it okay. We will manifest a party and when I saw this opportunity I thought wow, this would be perfect because it would be like she didn’t miss her party because its an indoor beach. So here I am helping her manifest her birthday party.

    Charlotte is kind, considerate, and a beautiful little being all around. She’s always helping other kids who struggle at school, and this year her teacher said, Charlotte is so wonderful, she helped another girl in class learn how to do something in gymnastics she was struggling with and when the child was finally able to do it, as she was practicing, Charlotte stood by her side cheering her on and encouraged her, and when she did it, Charlotte made sure that her friend felt credited and celebrated in the spotlight, and she didn’t take any of the credit.

    Last week another child had a major meltdown and was throwing things and making threats which resulted in a short lunch. I asked Charlotte why she didn’t eat her lunch at all, and she said mom because I am the only one in my school who meditates and pray, so I began meditating to hold space for everyone else and to help calm the child down.

    I know I can type multiple reasons why I would choose this. But I love Healthy Family Expo for giving us the opportunity. I’m grateful. Thank you.

  25. My kids are tweens now, but still love birthday parties. They’d be down for 6PACK INDOOR BEACH! 🙂 Thanks for this opportunity to win! <3
