"OMG. I have to organise a birthday party for my daughter!"
Hello mums and dads,
Welcome to our new, weekly issue!
After a 364 day wait, finally it's one of our children's birthday's. For us parents, this means we have one day of super don't-drop-the-ball concentration ahead, and then it's over for another year.
Parents have shared on Kinfo great ideas for great birthday parties. It's your turn to try them now. Don't forget to share your recommendations too, we all benefit from these unsponsored, honest reviews after all.Here.
Oh, and mums and dads have also shared birthday ideas and tips on our Facebook group - join us here, we love growing our family.
Isabelle & the Kinfo Team
Recommended by a mum of 2, this workshop was a solid success for her daughters. Spun organise parties where kids can design, mix, flavour, roll and handmake their own candy. The only (small) downside is, you will be carting kilos of candies back home. If that doesn't put you off (come on, it's a birthday party) then book here.
"Best ever party!" according to a 9-year-old and her friends. Her mum organised a party at the Kensington Leisure Centre with 24 kids (all swimmers) that entailed an hour in the shallow end of the pool and a function room. Contact a member of the staff here to organise your party and have a look at the Kinfo app for an important tip. (Clue: it will help you to arrive on time).
A "very creative climbing space" recommended by this dad of 3. With a giant slide, a jumping platform and many funky walls to climb on, this is the perfect place for birthday parties. You can rent the whole place or just buy the number of passes you need for your guests. There is a function room to celebrate your child's big day and a mezzanine to admire the little climbers.
This is a clever one: you get the kids cooking for their own party. And the cuisine is delicious! Recommended by this mum of a 5 year old little chef, Kids-en-cuisine can come to your place with all accessories and ingredients for a perfect and healthy celebration. Oh, and the party bag will be packed with the food they'll make. Genius. Book here.
Recommended by local parents, including this mum on Kinfo. This is a lovely place where you can enjoy delicious coffee while your little ones are re-designing all of your plates. Talk to the owner,Andrea, she will organise a bespoke arty birthday party for your little one.
A "well organised" place where you just need to bring your child and they do the rest. Kids love going up and down the giant playframe, running around before eat their snacks in the special room upstairs. Oh, and 'Big Bramley' shows up at the end to dance with them. Bam. Done.
A mum of 2 is recommending this top service that she used for both of her kids' parties. She likes the idea of having lots of great options to choose from. "Cakes were really yummy and the balloons a huge success". Easy to book directly on the website, perfect for busy parents.
Recommended by a local mum, this former church is a place where you can hang out with other parents, watch the little ones from a cafe area and do all you need to do at the post office while you're there. The Hullabaloo playframe with soft toys and little slides can be rented for well organised birthday parties – book a one hour play followed by one hour in the themed party room with an experienced party host. For ages 3-6 years.
Bowling.Snooker.Ping Pong. 10+
Recommended by a mum of 3 who attended a party here, this "huge" space is available to hire for private – big – parties. Active kids will enjoy five bowling lanes, ping pong, virtual cricket, snooker, karaoke, arcade games, etc. Her special tip: use the square outside before/after the party to get fresh air as the space is located in the basement.
NEXT WEEK WE WILL BE SHARING FAMILY FESTIVALS
