And another “Best birthday party ever!” in the books. I’m very good at throwing the best birthday parties ever, if I may say so myself. This time, we had 6 girls over for a party and sleepover. Those 6 plus our 2 daughters, makes 8 girls ages 6-9. (Yes, there is a girl with a black bucket on her head. She likes to do things like that.)
After researching the awesome Live Grow Play Austin Kids Directory (which I created and manage myself – patting myself on the back), I decided to go with a foam party provided by Freedom Fun.
It was important to me, that the foam doesn’t harm eyes, skin, or clothing of our party animals and neither our grass, plants, or the environment in general. I was glad to see that Freedom Fun’s foam is 100% organic, toxic free, hypoallergenic, consists of 90% air and the rest is just water & solution.
You can have your foam party in your back yard or you can order an inflatable foam pit which contains the foam (and kids) better. I opted for the foam pit.
The set-up didn’t take long. All we had to provide was a power and water source within 50 ft of the pit. Noah, the Freedom Fun guy, was super nice and explained the rules to the girls, such as no standing under the foam dispenser (can’t remember the word he used), no climbing on the foam pit, and no roughhousing.
And so the foam party began…
Foam fashion show:
The girls had an absolute blast.
Of course, I had to join in the fun to experience it myself. The foam was super soft, you couldn't even feel it, it didn’t stick and it was easy to get off.
I do have to say that the foam did have a little bit of a smell to it. I would recommend to have a hose nearby so the kiddos can rinse off from time to time.
It was a bit windy out, which made the party extra fun since the foam got carried away by the wind and the girls were trying to catch it.
Several times we heard a “This is the best birthday party ever!” and both of our daughters wanted to do it all over again the next day.
I think it’s safe to say that the party was a huge success and I highly recommend it.
