Party Idea ~ Amazing Animal Encounters

Amazing Animal Encounters
Nominated

Amazing Animal Encounters can come to your venue, setting, organisation or children's party and provide a hands on, interactive animal handling session or petting corner. They also run Musical Menagerie pre-school sessions for parties, settings and our own local weekly pay as you go groups and exclusive one:one sessions at our HQ. Based near Tonbridge and Royal Tunbridge Wells, they cover the majority of Kent and some of Surrey, East Sussex, Essex and South East London.

Amazing Animal Encounters comments "Children who attend an animal handling session as part of a birthday celebration talk about the event for many months to come. But animals aren’t just fun, they are educational and are wonderful social facilitators - they bridge the gap between a less socially outward or physically able child and the rest of the group and accept them for who they are. A birthday party can be an overwhelming experience for some children. A moment spent sitting calmly interacting with animals and their handler stimulates a sense of self-esteem and a sense of responsibility. Children love telling us about the animals they care for or facts learned about in a documentary. Some just cherish a moment to cuddle. Scientific research has shown empathy is learned behaviour, what a wonderful opportunity you have on your hands to teach the young about nurturing kindness and respect for animals. For some, the addition of an animal relationship into the family is a joy, teaching invaluable lessons and life skills. For those for which it would not suit, an animal encounter party is a great way to interact with all creatures great and small".

Bubblegum Balloons, the UK’s leading balloon and party pieces supplier, tell us how to throw the ultimate kids’ party, without losing your cool. We also have a giveaway for a fantastic Bubble Balloon!

Organising a celebration for your little one’s birthday may seem a daunting task, especially if you’re new to the kids’ party scene. Fear not! Here are some easy tips and advice on putting together a fantastic party they’ll never forget.

Choose a theme: Choosing a theme can help you plan the day, invitations, decorations and party games. It also means that party guests have the opportunity to dress up, which is always fun! Whether it’s a Princess, Pirate, Star Wars, Frozen, or Super Heroes themed affair, there are plenty of wonderful decorations and party game ideas available on the Internet.

Find the venue: If you have the space then hosting a party at home is a cheaper alternative to hiring a venue, but bear in mind that you may have a lot of clearing up to do afterwards. If being at home isn’t an option, there’s a huge choice of party venues, including soft play centres (that’s the entertainment sorted!), village halls, community centres, or even the park if the party is in spring or summer. The best advice is to start looking early as lots of venues do tend to get booked up.

Send out invitations: It’s wise to do this at least four weeks before the party to prevent disappointment if their favourite chum can’t make it. If you’re having a theme then match the invitations to this, or go all out and invite them by sending inflated bespoke balloons, or balloon cards.

Party bags: Party bags are a prerequisite of any kids’ party. All the leading supermarkets sell multi packs of little items that can be used to fill party bags. Buying some multi packs of balloons, perhaps themed to the party, and putting these in is also a good shout. Kids never get bored of balloons!
