Another Frugal Birthday at Aldo Leopold Nature Center

Local to Madison and have children and a desire to be frugal?  If yes, consider holding your next child birthday party at the Aldo Leopold Nature Center in Monona, Wisconsin.  Earlier I posted about the one we threw for our daughter when she turned 4.  Over the weekend we held another as our son turned 6.

ALNC has about ten different themed parties to select from.  The $160 fee includes: room, instructor for 2 hours, take-aways (i.e. party favors), plates, cups, utensils, and a breathtaking setting.  ALNC allows you to bring in your own food; healthy and frugal is a delightful change to the pizza and ice cream so commonly found at more mainstream locations.  In July our daughter celebrated with Ferries and Gnomes.  Our son opted for Space Exploration, and we were all awed by the programming.

Here are a few pictures.  And even if wee ones are not in your life, consider the center for other life celebrations or work retreats.  It is a gem for the local area!

The sphere of wonder!

Planet talk in the party room.

Dials of the sky -- the take away.

Powerful memories from July; 
looking for the ferry and gnome nests they made at our younger one's party.
