4. A Science Party for Curious Minds at the Glasgow Science Centre
For a fun party that also feeds your child’s curiosity, the Glasgow Science Centre is a great option! There are four different activities to choose from: Bubble-ology, Dino Dig, Cast a Fossil and Total Rampage. These are suited for different ages, so do let them know what age the birthday boy or girl is when booking.
All activities are designed to be a lot of fun and teach kids a little something about science, too. Your package also includes a dedicated party host, a goody bag and, for a few quid extra, a visit to the Fulldome Planetarium.
5. A Woodland Adventure Party with Operation Play Outdoors
Operation Play Outdoors is on a mission: to get kids of the 21st century to spend more time playing outside rather than sitting inside with their videogames. A birthday party with them is filled with fun and games and lots of fresh air. The party host will travel to a woodland area near you to help you put on a party tailored to your child’s interests.
You’ll choose two main activities and between these, the partygoers will learn fun new outdoor games they’ll be playing long after they leave. Gift bags and outdoor cooking can be added for a few extra pounds.
6. A Popstar Party to Get Your Groove On with All Star Parties
If the birthday boy or girl loves singing or dancing, this party will make them feel like the little star they are. Together with their guests, they’ll get a mini singing lesson and learn a simple but fun dance routine to their favourite tune.
At the end of the party, as parents come to pick up the partygoers, they’ll be treated to an all-singing, all-dancing performance that’s sure to be a hit. You can pick your theme from a number of beloved favourites like Disney, Ariana Grande or One Direction or choose your child’s favourite artist.
7. A Bubble Soccer Party with Bubble Soccer Scotland
For a football lover, this unique kids’ birthday party package is sure to score a goal. It’s a fun twist on traditional football: climb into a bubble, then run, roll and kick! The party will include organised games like 5 A-Side Bubble Football, Bubble Bull Dog and Last Standing.
You’ll have a dedicated party host and the whole event will be captured with plenty of photos and video for memories you can look upon for years to come. Food and party room options are available at select venues - there are four in Glasgow.
Great DIY birthday decorations
1. This tassel garland looks perfectly Instagrammable and is a good DIY project even for the artistically challenged. Make this paper garland as colourful as possible and add a little interest to your party venue.
2. While real flowers are expensive and die quickly, these tissue paper flowers look great and are cheap and easy to make. Bonus points for using the birthday boy or girl’s favourite colours!
3. DIY pinwheels are hugely versatile: they can be used as cake toppers or set on every plate as a little memento of the party. You could even write every child’s name on them so that they double as place cards!
