For girls and boys alike, you can’t go wrong with the circus! This theme is easy to replicate. Get hold of a red gazebo, some animal posters and the music to match, and you’ll be whisking your kids away to a wonderful world of clowns and trapeze artists in no time at all. Why not trying something new? Whatever your child’s interest there is something for everyone. From heroes and princesses, to animals, to any and everything you could imagine, customised giant inflatable replicas of your kid’s favourite things are available to make their party that little bit more special this year.

This one will really make your kids roar! If you’re feeling like a Jurassic classic, make your kids’ day by hiring some Dino inspired costumes, some prehistoric plates and dinosaur shaped snacks.

Magic Garden Party

Whether it is a fairy garden inspired party, or an Alice in Wonderland experience that will make your kids day that little bit more special, there are tons of ideas available to take inspiration from. Why not even opt for a outdoor party tents or giant blow up rabbit to really get things hopping!

Soft play Party

For little ones and slightly older little ones alike, soft play can be a great experience. Expect to pay around £15 per child, maybe cheaper if it’s after school rather than at weekend, but if you have 15 children coming, suddenly its costing £225, which is a lot for a party. You’ll also need to add on the cost of a cake and party bags too. But hey, if you are after hassle free, go for this option.

Farm Party


If you can’t bring the animals into your home, why not bring your kids to the animals! Contact your local farm or petting zoo and see just what they can do for you! This is like the soft play party in terms of cost, but a different kind of entertainment. You’ll pay around £15 per child but that includes entry to the park and normally a few adults – it will normally also include food too. Good for animal loving children and great in the summer!

Whatever you decide upon for your little one’s special day, there are plenty of options to choose from. From shared parties to save some cash, to fancy dress parties of all shapes and sizes, the choice is yours.


  1. We usually opt for the soft play option but at our local leisure centre as it only costs £80 to hire out the hall with soft play equipment included. I then make my own party bags, bake a cake and they allow you to take your own food so we can make a buffet for around £25 and the kids have loads of fun.
