Planning an exciting birthday party for your child can be daunting to say the least, so check out this list of 5 NYC birthday party places where kids make their own chocolate and candy for a sweet surprise.
As I child, I loved having pool parties for my birthdays. I honestly don’t know exactly how many pool parties I had, but I do remember there were quite a few, and they were always fun. My parents probably appreciated it because there wasn’t much planning that went into a pool party other than reserving the space, hiring a lifeguard, and buying cake and food. Not to mention, there’s far less cleanup than at most parties. Aside from pool parties I remember some sleepover parties and a party at a local art center.
It seems these days, parents go all out for their kid’s birthday parties. It also seems like there are a lot more decorations available, that are just cooler and more exciting than the options we had for birthday parties. Birthday parties can cost a lot of money as so much goes into them. To start, you have to find a venue, which depending on what and where you choose, can cost the bulk of the expenses. Some venues specialize in birthday parties and have all-inclusive packages making it a bit easier, while at others, you’re just paying for the space. If you don’t have an all-inclusive venue, next you will have to drop money on decorations, cake, food & drinks, gift bags, and other party supplies. The list for a kid’s birthday party is never-ending. On top of all that, I can’t imagine the time and research it takes to find some of the best birthday party locations in NYC — not to mention the cost of some of the venues here. Because this is a huge city, though, you can pretty much find any kind of birthday party venue you’re looking for, including some you might not find anywhere else. If you have a kid with a serious sweet tooth and you’re courageous enough to have a candy-filled party, there are even options for birthday parties where kids get to make their own sweet treats.

In the meantime, we’ll focus on kids birthday parties and how they can score an opportunity to make their own candy. What can be more exciting to a child? To create our list, we took a look at the Class Curious database, where we found a variety of places that teach chocolate and candy-making classes around the city. While most focus on adults, there were a few that offer children’s classes and will accommodate a birthday party. Or list is in no particular order, as prices typically depend on the number of people in attendance as well as the type of party.
