Our parties and events embrace the following elements: movement, imagination, creativity, music, singing, puppetry and most of all - lots of fun.
Different sections are included and these can be mixed up and interchanged depending on the party or event. A wonderful story unfolds and the children come on the magical adventure with us. The story is played out through -
'It's in the bag!' time
During this period the children's curiosity and imagination get cajoled. They are given clues and encouraged to guess what's in the bag... different items appear from the bag and songs, little dramas or puppet shows centre around the item that has been pulled from the bag. The suspense of what will come out the bag keeps the children captivated and involved.
This is a much loved part of an 'It's in the bag!' party when a special guest arrives linked to the theme. Can you imagine the excitement when the Good Fairy arrives at the party and sprinkles her magic dust?
During this period children will have the opportunity to create something that they will be able to take home with them. The item will be related to the theme of the party. Colouring, gluing and moulding are all favourite things for little hands.
During the 'Lycra fun' many games and songs are centred round a large piece of Lycra which the children enjoy pulling and throwing things on, getting on top of, getting under and much more... it's amazing how much fun one can have with spandex!
All the children are encouraged to join in but never pushed into doing anything they don't want to. There really is something for everyone. Keeping the children's attention and mixing up the games and activities ensures that all children are relaxed, happy and entertained.
