There’s one place to be right now — outside! Make the most of the sun and throw an outdoor birthday party. We found great places to live it up, from the back deck of a play space to a playground with water sprinklers. Click through the slideshow for nine options.

For Animal Encounters: Wagner Farm

Old MacDonald might know a thing or two about animals, but the folks at historic Wagner Farms are the pros when it comes to throwing a party. Choose from the age-appropriate party package themes like Farmer Picasso or Little Farmers; or design your own party, which can include a staff-guided tour of the farm, arts and crafts, and even horse-drawn wagon rides. Most parties are 90 minutes long and can host up to 25 children, except for the Design Your Own Party that includes a space for 30-60 guests and can be booked by half hour intervals. Party packages start at $270.
