Little Party Animals: Party Venues Just for The Littles

After the giant "not really for them" first birthday party, you start to think about the kind of party your kid would actually want. Do they have interests? A favorite class or activity? A favorite character? Would they like to run around with their friends like wild animals or is your child more of an artistic kid who would love to do fun projects with their friends?
