How to create birthday parties for mini explorers

Published by : Claire

If like us, your little one longs for adventure why not create a woodland themed birthday party in your garden. Just throw in some imagination and adventure awaits.

No party can begin without an invitation. They are the ticket to adventure. Choose from either an Enchanted Forest or Treetops invite and download yours for free. They can be printed for your child to write personally or attach them to an email for a more eco-friendly approach.

Invite your friends to step through your garden gate or meet you in a corner of the park and be transported into another land:

Do you believe in unicorns? The Enchanted Forest is filled with everything you need to create a magical garden party filled with unicorns, fairy doors and princess castles.

Or perhaps you love the magic of treehouses? Treat children to a Treetops party where the curious can climb ladders, swing through the trees and come face-to-face with Treelings.

Once the invites have been sent, it’s time to create your woodland wonderland.

Decorations and Table Décor

Setting the party table (or perhaps party picnic blanket) is the main event.

We are big fans of partyware brand Meri Meri. Like us, they believe in childhood. We love their simple and timeless designs that bring to life home celebrations.

Their Let's Explore and Princess party themes particularly caught our eye because of their emphasis on outdoor adventure and magical woodlands.

Party Games

Fun games are perfect for burning off birthday excitement. We’ve taken our own unicorn twist of the classic game ‘pin the tail on the donkey’. In our version it’s all about the magical unicorn horn.

The beauty of this game is that it can even be played remotely so if you’re having a virtual party everyone can print and play at home.

We’ve included 8 colour-in unicorn horns so each child knows which is theirs. Simply download and print yours for free.

Party Bags

Party bag fillers often generate waste so we prefer to think of it as a little take-home party gift that children can keep and reuse.

Creative Green Bricks Lego

We love the simplicity of LEGO’S Classic Creative Green Bricks Playset which includes simple instructions to build a tree. Or children can explore imaginative ideas of their own. At £5 each, they are a fun and classic party bag gift. And if you’re having a digital celebration, they can be delivered to guests in advance to build together on Zoom.

Give alongside some sweets or a slice of cake and children are in birthday heaven!
