Birthday Parties

Go wild on your birthday!

Wild Parties

Our themed parties are held in The Wildlife Discovery Room and our outdoor classroom at Carsington Water.

Our wild parties last for two hours which includes half an hour eating time. You can bring your own party food or leave it all up to us and book either hot or cold food for the party meal.

Most of the time is spent outdoors wherever possible and the children will also take part in a craft activity to make something special to take home with them as a party favour.

Fairies flutter-by

Best in the summer months.

Search for signs of fairies then build them a den to live in. Have a hunt for the fairies’ butterfly friends and finally make a butterfly feeder or fairy wand to take home with you.

Bush-craft adventure

Any time of year.

Build mini dens and toast marshmallows on the camp fire. The children will also
make a woodland medallion to take home.

Teddy bears’ picnic

Any time of year.

Bring your own teddy bear along to discover nature together. Play sensory games and make a natural collage bookmark to take home with you.

Pond Party

Any time of year. 

Dip in the pond to see what is lurking under the water, then make your own dragonfly to take home with you.

Dragon discovery

Any time of year.

Search for signs of dragon activity around the outdoor classroom, then hunt for mini beasts and creepy crawlies. Then make a dragonfly to take home with you.

Arty Party

Any time of year.

Let your artistic side out with natural art activities. Make a green man in the woods, do natural sculptures and make a natural collage bookmark to take home with you.
