Planning a birthday party for toddlers can be challenging and stressful. Parents must choose an age-appropriate location that is safe, clean and fun. The venue also must fit within a budget, in most cases. If you are planning a toddler birthday party in Denver, Colorado, you have several options both indoors and outdoors.
Children's Museum of Denver
The Children's Museum of Denver (mychildsmuseum.org) offers an array of toddler-friendly fun including a play grocery store, an arts and crafts center, a play fort and tree house, a pretend fire station and a bubble exhibit. The museum offers birthday parties for groups of up to 50 people. Party packages include all-day admission for your guests to the museum, a private decorated party room for one hour, invitations and a water bottle for each child. Pizza, juice and treat bags can be added to any package for an additional charge.
Gymboree Play & Music Center

Each party includes a theme of your choice, such as a jungle safari, arts party and sports and music. Every Gymboree party includes private use of the Gymboree Play and Music Center for 90 minutes and a Gymboree teacher to guide toddlers through games and activities. Party supplies and invitations are also provided.
Dardano's School of Gymnastics
