We love: how children learn how to safely catch toads and take a lizard for a walk

Animal parties are always really popular with kids. And these Safari parties are even more so. After all, it’s not everyday that they get to hold a tarantula or take a lizard for a walk.

Safari Pete brings all sorts of exciting animals to your party for the guests to meet and hold. It’s not cute bunnies and guinea pigs though. There are some really cool animals like Tallulah the Meerkat, Drake the Snake, Lady Gaga the Tarantula and (arguably the star of the show) Jayz the crocodile.

Safari Pete is so passionate about animals and wildlife and it really shows. One parent said:

I cannot emphasize just how great the show was and how fabulous Pete was!! Not only were the children captivated but the adults were blown away as well. Sacha

Lisa was bursting with energy and worked her socks off for 2 hours making sure that all the children had a great time. It is the only party that all I have been to where ALL the children joined in for all of the time. Very highly recommended. Simon

So thank you very much for delivering a perfect day for my son and his friends and making my life a little easier.

Bushcraft Parties

Outdoor, active parties

We love: how children can take part in their own Bushtucker trials (eating bugs!)

Good for: Kids who love the great outdoors and a bit of adventure.
Ages: 5-15 yrs
Website: bushcraftparties.com

Not all parties have to take place at home or in a village hall. You could shake things up and have an outdoor party – filled with active fun and adventures.

At a Bushcraft party your child and their guests can enjoy all sorts of activities – building dens in the woods, learning survival skills, making their own bows and arrows and even cooking the party tea over a campfire (entertainment and party food done in one!)

You might worry about booking an outdoor party when the great British weather is so unreliable. But if it rains on your party day then Bushcraft bring tarps for the kids to shelter under.

They find that most children don’t mind the rain and still enjoy the outdoor fun in raincoats and wellies.

The party was run by Michael, who was fun and energetic with the children (mainly girls ages 10/11!). They played tug o’ war, made a shelter, lit the fire (practised first with the flints to make sparks), cooked sausages over the fire and then were split into teams to hide a scarf and then had to retrieve the other teams scarf back to their base camp. It was a cold, wet November day and sprints were kept high to get them revved up!! Only complaint……the kids (and I) wished it could have been 4 hours long and not 2, we weren’t ready to split the party up.

We had a fantastic 5th birthday party for our daughter thanks to Natalie at Starting with Art.  She was happy to work with our daughter’s ideas and come up with an art activity for the children – they all made dream catchers with lots of threading, beads, sparkles and plasticine.  Natalie arrived in plenty of time to set up the activity before the children arrived (all we had to do was clear some floor space!) She got all the children (and plenty of the parents!) involved and had them all engrossed.  She even had a second activity lined up for anyone who finished quickly. Starting with Art also did the party bags for us which included an activity sheet related to the party as well as little presents, trinkets and treats for the children. It was a great party and very original.  It was a huge success with all the children and parents. Thank you for a memorable 5th birthday! Shama
