Easy for Parents and Fun for Kids – Having Your Next Party at The Mud Room is a No-Brainer!
If there’s one thing my kids always want to talk about, it’s their birthdays. This February my son mused over breakfast about which Costco cake he’d like on the big day. His birthday is in July. And what’s a birthday (and a Costco cake) without a party?!
While I’m a little bit of a “Pinterest Mom,” I’m all for outsourcing birthday party entertainment. Trying to organize and explain a game to a group of 5 year-olds? No, thank you.
One place that makes birthday parties fun for kids and easy for parentsis The Mud Room in Grand Rapids! If you have a creative child in your family, you’re going to want to keep this place in mind for your next celebration.
Parents Love the Built-In Party Favors and No Mess to Clean
The Mud Room offers a variety of party packages for kids ages 7-16 for up to 16 party guests. You will have access to a semi-private event room for 90 minutes. All your fees, materials, glazing, and firing are included–no guessing on costs!
They also understand the importance of cake and presents and give you extra time in their space to enjoy and celebrate the birthday kid without using your precious crafting time. How thoughtful! I also love that each kid can make something special to take home.
Did I mention you won’t even have to clean your house?! Having a birthday party at The Mud Room is basically every parent and kid’s dream come true.
Decisions, Decisions! Which Party Suits Your Child?
So what type of party can you have at The Mud Room? Well, you’ve got options!
- Paint Something Special: Your party guests can pick from a variety of items (mugs, plates, figurines, and such) to paint as they’d like. With each child getting to paint what they want, I think you’ll have a room of happy kids!
- Spin Your Own Pot on the Potter’s Wheel: Use your hands to sculpt a ball of clay into your own bowl or vessel. You even get to add color to it the same day! This would have been my dream birthday party for most of my childhood- it’s sure to be a hit with your artistic kiddo.
- Coloring Book: Each guest gets a salad plate with a design already outlined. All they need to do is paint it! This is a great option for younger kids.
- A La Carte: Looking for something different? You can purchase items individually and pay for room and table rental.
When the biggest decision you need to make is which type of party you’ll throw, I think that’s a parenting win.
There’s Always Something Fun Happening at The Mud Room
If you’re not a birthday party family (my kiddos only get parties on milestone birthdays) or you don’t want to wait a year to see what The Mud Room is all about, they have plenty of reasons to stop in just because.
This summer kids can sign-up for Camp Mud. These are creative workshops offered throughout the summer that allow kids to explore the potter’s wheel, glass fusing, and more. What a great way to keep your artsy kids happy this summer.
Another fun offering for younger kids (ages 3-6 years) is Story Time. Your kids will hear a story and then paint a themed project. What a fun way to spend some quality time with your littlest Picasso!
Whether it’s party planning or summer fun, I think you’ll love everything The Mud Room has to offer.
