Every year when your child’s birthday comes around, you end up racking your brain for fun and unique ideas for the party. Most of the time you end up choosing something such as the video arcade or ten pin bowling, as it can be done in a large group and keeps the kids distracted. But what if you could organise a birthday party that was both entertaining AND educational? Well the good news is you can!
Reptile Encounters provides birthday parties with a difference, giving your child and his or her guests an up-close experience in nature. The team performs a wildlife show featuring a menagerie of native Australian animals including lizards, snakes, turtles and even a crocodile! The reptiles are the stars of the show but also making an appearance are birds (such as cockatoos and owls), marsupials and fish.
Children can hold the animals and not only will they get up close and personal but will learn all about the animals and their habits. Conservation and education are a big part of the day but it is also about fun. The kids will be over the moon getting to experience such amazing creatures.
You might also decide to make it a dress-up theme, where the guests can come in a costume of their favourite animal. And you might decide to create party food with the native animal theme too. The event will just be like going to a wildlife sanctuary, but instead it’s in your own home!
For those who live in an apartment or just don’t wish to host at their place, Reptile Encounters also offers to hold the party in their own venue. The space can cater for up to 20 kids and is very child friendly. Located in Burwood, there is space to run around and you can BYO party food or hire the BBQ.
All the staff are experts in handling the animals as well as managing children, so you can sit back and relax while the party unfolds. As a parent, you are always looking for ways to keep your child busy while at the same time stimulating their mind. A reptile party is a wholesome activity that will have the kids raving for days.
Many parents have stated the children have come home super happy and the next day want to go out and buy books to learn more about the animals they saw. It is so great to see them inspired like that.
This moment would be the one where his or her curiosity level will increase as he or she starts to fully comprehend the beauty and nature of wildlife. And who knows, your kid might turn into a passionate wildlife enthusiast or zoologist, or at the very least have a new appreciation of caring for the planet and all it’s creatures.
