‘... the thought and creativity was brilliant and the kids had an absolute ball.’
Liberty's 5th birthday party

"Crafty Tales" will make a party around any theme - we have never been stumped.We range from a simple 40 min music set for babies, or a story/songs/parachute fun for toddlers, up to Glow-In-The-Dark, Science parties, and a full table-top Harry Potter Magic School  session, complete with take-home wizard starter set. Face paints and tattoos as the children arrive are an additional option.

Outline for a 1hr 10min party

Party opening - 30 minutes

The party opens with temporary tattoos and face-painting (small motifs only)

Older children may have a ‘Birthday Message’ sheet, on which they draw or write something special for the birthday child.

Storytime - 40 minutes

The children sit in a circle and the fun begins! Welcome songs, Boo-Boo the puppet, dancing, parachute, bubbles, instruments (4yrs and under) and, of course, a fully interactive story.

We clear up and leave while the children sit down to eat.

Always happy to provide inspiration for activities during that final 30 mins before the children go home!
