Becky and the Nimble Tots team are also available for parties – and not just those for the 0-5s! Our parties are suitable for children aged up to 13, and we’ve plenty of experience working with older children too through our work with our sister company Nimble Arts.
We have a few different party offerings – but if you’d like us to design something bespoke, do get in touch! We do tend to get booked up quite a long way in advance, so the earlier you can make your enquiry and the more flexibility over dates, the more likely we are to be able to accommodate! With any enquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. All members of the Nimble Tots party team are experienced with working with this age, DBS checked and full of energy for your kids’ special day!
Prices are for within a 20 minute drive (in normal traffic!) from SE26 – we do travel for parties further afield, and charge travel at £1 per additional minute each way (using Google maps travel estimate!) plus any additional tolls
SMALL – 40 minutes for max 15 kids (aged 0-7)
Storytelling and Music Party
Perfect for smaller groups of 0-8 year olds (we’d recommend a maximum of 15 kids), these parties are close in content to Nimble Tales classes, and include songs and stories. We can theme this to suit the birthday theme, and will include songs, instruments and stories to suit the age of attendees!
This is an acoustic storytelling and music session, so ideal for spaces where adults and children are participating together!
Party Games and Noisy Songs
If you’re in a noisier spot and are looking for something to entertain the kids whilst the adults chat, a mini-game and song session is perfect! We’ll still have some story-elements, but we’ll bring amplification, a mini-disco speaker, parachute and bubbles, and run a more energetic session featuring classic kids songs with guitar or ukulele, games and some dancing!
£100 for 40 minutes
(if you have more than 15 children who are walkers, we will bring an extra assistant for £50 extra)
We’ll come and set up a table full to the brim of age-appropriate crafty fun, themed to your party. Unlike the structured craft parties below, this is perfect for younger children in a free-flow party environment, and will include lots of simple, fun craft options, with a member of the Nimble Tots team assisting and supervising throughout. We can theme crafty creations to match the party!
We’ll arrive in advance of the party to set everything up in addition to the length of time we’re there.
40 minutes: £100 for up to 15 kids (aged over 1) and then £3 per additional child
Then £20 per additional 20 minutes
MEDIUM – 1 hour for max 25 kids (aged 3-11)
Drama and Craft Party
With two members of the team, this is a lively, action packed hour of drama, games and craft for up to 25 children. We’ll come in costume and keep everyone moving throughout! Usually we’ll set up in advance of the party, and then burst in and start the activities once guests have arrived, starting with c. 30 minutes of drama and games (pitched as appropriate to the age), followed by 30 minutes of linked craft, before leading the children back to you for their tea, whilst we handle all the clearing up!
We can make this a full hour of craft, or a full hour of games and drama
Superhero Bootcamp, Lego, Mystery,Pirate, Science, School for Feisty Princesses/Fairies/Princes, Disco…
Craft Party – 1 hour for max 25 kids (aged 3-13) – additional materials cost for more than 15 children
With two members of the team, this is a full crafty extravaganza for one hour of making! Includes all materials to make something really special to take home, and price includes ALL materials, set up time and all the tidying up afterwards! With a full hour of crafting, we can really get stuck into some brilliant craft projects (and we’ll always have extension activities for speedy finishers) – we can chat through with you logistics of space, mess and gauge an age and theme appropriate project to find the perfect activity.
Some of our favourite activities include:
- Decorated decoupage or painted treasure boxes
- Butterfly, Insect and Fairy wings (quite paint heavy so needs more space!)
- Superhero felt cape making
- Crystals – make your own crystals AND blinded up treasure boxes
- Washi tape name plaques
- Dinosaur feet and hat creating
- Jewellery making
- Sock monsters
£250 for maximum of 25 children for craft/drama combo, and maximum of 15 children for a craft party. For craft parties there’s a £4 per additional child (to cover extra craft resources as these are very material heavy parties). If you have more than 25 children we’re happy to discuss a bespoke quote, but we would normally bring an extra member of staff for this number.
LARGE – Up to 2.5 hours – we’ll be across the whole party – craft, drama, games and mini-disco!
With at least 2 members of the team, we’ll be there from the outset to welcome guests in with free flow craft. We’ll then lead c. 45 minutes of energetic, interactive drama and/or games, and then guide them to you for their food! Whilst the children eat, we’ll be on hand setting up the mini-disco, and ready to help with managing guests during the tea, keeping them entertained and the all important happy birthday! After tea, we’ll set up a mini disco running until pick-up with lights, bubbles and music, before helping with the important job of getting everyone safely back to their parents!
We’re happy to discuss the timetable with you. Themes are as the medium party, and we’re happy to discuss parties with children with any additional needs, mixed age groups or any other special requests!
£370 for maximum of 25 children. If you have more than 25 children we’re happy to discuss a bespoke quote, but we would normally bring an extra member of staff for this number.
OPTIONAL EXTRAS – you can add these to any of the above packages OR even just book us for these!
Decorations: We’re happy to come and dress the venue with helium balloons, bunting and decorations, and will have enough brightly coloured balloons available for every child to take one home (don’t worry, there will be a few spares!). Price: Depends on the size of the venue, but generally for a party of 12-20 children this will be £60, including all the helium for balloons.
Dressing-Up Box: We’ll bring a huge variety of dressing up materials, mirror and rail in our wonderful dressing up chest! Price: £80 for the day (we’ll usually pick this up the day after the party so that your guests can continue to enjoy it after we’ve left!)
Party Bags: Bespoke, high quality party bags, made to order using paper bags and customised to suit the theme of the party! They usually contain 7-10 theme-linked, age appropriate favours, normally including a book, mini-craft pack, toy, snack (either healthy or sweet treat!) and other gifts linked to the theme. We’re happy to liaise with parents about contents! £5.00 per bag.
