Planning the perfect outdoor party for your child?

At Kingswood, we think outdoor adventure parities are the most fun! Follow our handy guide to find out how to make your child's birthday the best ever.

Outdoor learning doesn't just have to come from schools, we've thought of fun ways you can link outdoor exploration through celebrating!

Select the perfect venue

Outdoor parties offer children the unique chance to run around in a big space, feel the fresh air and have loads of fun with their friends. Many outdoor birthday party venues, like our activity centres, will also offer a large variety of activities and extra smiles from the party-goers. If a centre isn't within reach, why not a local park, where children can play and explore while being supervised.

Choose a theme

Does your child have a particular passion or hobby? Why not turn this into an inventive theme for your child's next birthday. Or, to match the outdoor setting why not add a note in your child's birthday invitations to friends requesting them to dress up as their favourite literary adventure characters or woodland creatures.

Pick a date

Don’t worry what the weather is up to as all outdoor adventures mean fun in the fresh air, allowing children to enjoy the different seasons is all part of the fun. Come rain or shine your children’s party will be fun no matter what. Plus, if you book a Kingswood party we make sure there is always a plan B for a rainy day with our selection of indoor activities and sports hall facilities.

Send out your themed birthday invitations

Now that you have your theme arranged, make sure to send out your themed invitations to all your child’s friends.

Start thinking about some great games and activities

Why not make the day even more special with a birthday focused activity!

Scavenger hunt – Look for items in nature and create a point system for the children to find particular items to return or capture as a picture

Egg and spoon race – Creating healthy competition as part of an egg and spoon race is a perfect way to get the party started

Three-legged race – Collect some bandannas or scarves to tie legs together for a three-legged race. Why not add a prize for the first to fall?

Relay races – Why not upgrade your race and make it a dress-up relay race? This is a great photo opportunity.

Put together a party bag that your children’s friends will love

Why not carry on with your theme and collect some treats and gifts that your guests will take away and treasure forever. If you had a woodland theme, you could place a compass or some smores ingredients to toast on a campfire in your guests' party bags.

Plan the food

After all the activities your children and guests will be hungry so don’t forget the party treats and certainly not the cake. Try and keep the theme running with the food too… you could have a crown shaped birthday cake for your Kings and Queens?

Relax and enjoy the party!

Have fun! You have done all the hard work now sit back and watch your children have a great adventure in the great outdoors.
