Kids Party Ideas

Kids Parties
Originally uploaded by thisperthlife.
As I was searching around for party ideas to celebrate my son's 4th Birthday earlier this year, it was a nice change to be able to search for bouncy castles and other outdoor activites to celebrate his birthday, rather than try to find indoor activities.

His birthday, like mine, is now in the Summer whereas they were in the deepest darkest Winter months when we were in the UK.

Anyway, I digress. Here are some party ideas to help your child celebrate their birthday in Perth...

Bouncy Castles

The bouncy castle and inflatable slide that you see in the picture above, are from Jumping J Jays who were, I have to say, great. They turned up on time, they set up quickly without any fuss and they dismantled the whole thing in about 10 minutes. If I ever need another bouncy castle, I would hire them in a trice.

Limo Party

This next one is courtesy of Lorraine, a ThisPerthLife reader;

"My name is Lorraine, I recently sent a comment to your website regarding things to do in Perth, so I thought I would share a recent experience with you. My daughter just had her 12th birthday & to celebrate we had a Limo party, this is no ordinary Limo it's purely for kids, inside it has a karaoke, telephones, nintendo, dvd screens & lots more. The kids had a fantastic time & Martin the owner of partylimo was an absoloute gem nothing was any bother to him he was so patient & just wanted the kids to have a great time & they did!!!!!!!.

The reason I thought I would let you know about it is, I think it's a great idea for any of your readers that have family coming from overseas, where all the kids can do something special together to make it a holiday they will never forget. I know the 8 kids we had at the party said it was the best party ever."

The firm that Lorraine used is PartyLimo.

Jewellery Parties

Ideal for all girl parties (not to be sexist but boys generally are so not into this!), the beads and all tools are provided and you get to take home what you've made.

Giant Games

If you fancy an educational theme to your party, check out this firm who will provide giant versions of favourite games like Twister, Pick Up Sticks and Ludo.

Giant Sumo Suits

How about letting off steam (and excess energy) with childrens' giant infatable sumo suits hire. Looks great fun!!!

Sleepover Party at AQWA

A slumber party with a difference! Sleepover in the Shipwreck Coast with sharks, rays and turtles swimming overhead and then have breakfast with the seals!

Close Encounters with Perth Zoo's Residents

You can choose between the following: Rhinos & Giraffes, Elephants, Orang Utans, Feeding the Crocodile, Feeding the Snakes.

Some nice theme ideas for kids parties especially the sumo suit option. But for a really successful time you need some unusual party games that the kids may have never played before. Try my blog STRANGE GAMES to see what I mean

Good morning,

This is just a quick & friendly contact to introduce ourselves:

We are my make believe, and we specialize in children’s costumes for children 0-5.

We would love if you could bookmark us so should you ever be in the need for some spectacular enhancements to your entertainment you know where to look!

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us – enjoy your day

My child recently had a kids party entertainer from Sandgroper kids Entertainment... Not only was the show fantastic and the children loved it, but it was great to know i was not getting a 16 year old kid to run the entertainment, it was a university trained teacher with years of experience. You could see the difference in the party.

My kids (and I) love The Lulus!

The songs are fantastic, the characters and puppets are amazing and the host is gorgeous!

They call their shows edutainment. Themes include exercise, health, tolerance, sun safety, and taking care of the environment.

Check them out!

Am looking for an aquatic centre for my sons first birthday. Has anyone been to one recently that has wet play areas for little babies?? Thanks

Hi - I'm from Perth too - just thought I'd let you know that has heaps of great ideas for kids' birthday parties - from what themes to choose to what games to play, to activities for the kids to make at their party. There is a huge section on novelty birthday cakes which has photos of the finished cake with step-by-step instructions so you know just how to make it.

This is a free resource site and definitely not be missed.

How about a Craft Party?? Messy Mates is craft based but does the whole party package (exc food) including lots of really fun games. My daughter went to one recently and they decorated ceramic trinket boxes which were really good quality to take home and keep. She is 11 so not just for littlies.

G'day just had a customer email us about Sleep overs at AQWA - we haven't run this program for about 3 years and I thought you may like to up date your website. While we don't offer birthday parties we do have 'Kids packs' for sale at reception - this includes an AQWA passport (to complete their kids need to serch AQWA's exhibits to find special marine medals to make a rubbing of), AQWA pencils and an AQWA shark poster.
