I’d run out of ideas! After seven years of coming up with creative themes and entertainers for my kids’ parties, my birthday bucket had dried up. We’ve had our share of superheroes and my girls were totally over fairies and Frozen. Aaaargh….what was next?
Then I discovered that Bop Till You Drop, my absolutely favourite disco kids’ party specialists, had launched a whole host of new options – including a plaster painting party, play dough, slime, science and craft. Plus you can combine any of these with the Bop Till You Drop signature disco.
This was the answer to my dilemma. My kids are crazy about dancing and art so to find a party provider that does both was beyond perfection.
So Many Party Options
We’ve had Bop Till You Drop parties before so I already knew we were in professional hands. We’ve had a few a stand-alone disco events and last year we had a super successful sports + disco combo party, which the kids are still raving about.
It wasn’t an easy decision to pick which art would be the party focus. But my kids couldn’t go past a plaster painting party and to be able to have a boogie too was just the cherry on top.
While hubby and I were frantically setting up the party venue, our Bop Till Your Drop host, the incredible Cathy and her assistant calmly took care of the painting tables and effortlessly got all the disco equipment ready to go. From the moment Cathy arrived she was full of passion and enthusiasm. While most of us would cringe at the thought of 30 loud kids yelling with glee, Cathy somehow managed to keep the kids engaged, focused and having fun for the full two hours. The kids clearly thought she was simply fabulous and the parents were just as thankful that their sprogs were having the best time.
The party guests (aged between 4 and 8 years old) got started with their plaster painting. The plasters had a variety of characters suitable for boys and girls and they were large and generous. Those that finished their first creation were invited to pick another one to paint.
While their artwork was drying, the kids had a snack. Then the disco began.
Cathy had set up three microphones so kids could come up to the front and play pop stars in front of the mikes. Before the party, I had suggested a few of my kids’ favourite songs so they loved being able to sing along to their favourite hits.
I loved how Cathy made such a fuss over the birthday boy and girl. While all the kids got their time to shine, my ones were made to feel like royalty (which is what they should feel like on their special day!). They got to pick other kids to join them up front and they all had a blast singing and dancing up a storm.
So Much Fun
Cathy also played a variety of dancing games and other activities, making sure the kids were always active and smiling.
The kids all got a well-deserved ice-block after the disco and then Cathy gathered all the kids around the cake.
Cake cutting is usually the worst part of the party for me. The kids usually hang around like little vultures trying to pick out the lollies or take a swipe of the icing. But Cathy saved my stress by leading the kids back to the disco area for one last song.
By the time the finale dance number ended, the cake was on plates ready to be served.
The Best Party Ever!
The party was given two big thumbs up from the kids and their parents. Plus most important, my birthday boy and girl had the best day ever! From now on, I’m not going even try and think of birthday party ideas, I’ll just leave it to the experts and let Bop Till You Drop take care of it all.
