Unique kids party idea inspiration

  • Kids Party Ideas | Acrobranch Kids Party Venue | South Africa

As a parent finding the best party venue for your child can be a challenge, especially as they get a little older and the conventional indoor jungle gym and jump castle doesn’t do the trick. Arts and crafts and fine motor skills take up their days at school and you realise that your child will probably benefit more from large motor activities and outdoor play. Having 10+ preteens run through the house is no parent’s idea of fun either, nevermind the cleaning up one must do afterwards. If you have a sensory sensitive child, parties can be even more stressful, and you will have to manage the group size, noise levels and more. So much planning!

But then again, a birthday party is a celebration, a wonderful day where we can embrace the gift of life and the uniqueness of your child and their gift to the world. Therefore as parents, we like to make this day special and one to remember. We also like to take our annual family photo in this naturally joyful environment. My hubby and I like to invite their closest friends who are already enjoying our child’s company and who can celebrate this with us.

So where to now?

Over the next few months, we will share some unique kids party inspiration ideas. The first being an Acrobranch. We love Acrobranch parties and teambuilding: City kids get the chance to explore the great outdoors in a safe environment. Not only do the kids have a blast running, jumping and zipping through trees, but they also learn amazing skills as they play. This, in my opinion, is the best way to learn. Kids were designed to move and not sit still for hours. At Acrobranch adventure parks they learn to interact, to wait their turn, to grow their confidence amongst various other skills. Furthermore, Acrobranch has a great team of child-minders, sensitive to every child’s needs and quick to help out, support and encourage the children so you can relax. They cater for preschoolers, school kids, preteens and teens (and adults) and as every person is challenged to their own skill level and abilities it will be fun for all ages from 3 and up.

Large motor activities and exertion also help with the secretion of endorphins- it is happy hormones- naturally making the celebration more fun for everyone. After 2 hours of play, they can sit down for a deliciously prepared party by one of the contracted party providers.

It sounds like the perfect day out, right? We went a while ago and you are welcome to read more about our Acrobranch experience here
