Yes, you can now book an environmental themed party for your child. Our experienced staff offer a unique birthday experience. They are very popular and available dates get booked up well in advance, so book early.
- Suitable for 5 - 10 year olds
- Costs £8 per child and lasts 2 hours
- We don't provide the food or party bags
Our parties are mostly based outside so please request suitable warm / water proof outdoor clothing and wellies on the invite.
To start, the children will visit our fantastic interactive exhibition and then receive 1 hour of entertainment from our experienced leaders. We offer a choice of environmental themes and activities from outdoor trails and games to wildlife-inspired art workshops. Then we provide a suitable space for the party food but ask parents to bring their own. We allow 30 minutes at the end of the session for party food.
Themes and workshops include:
This bugtastic choice combines an outside minibeast hunt, with bug themed games and our ‘design a bug’ scrapheap challenge.
Discover the wildlife of Water of Leith through an activity trail, games and session of River Dipping, concluding with a watery art workshop.
Design and build a boat for your own mini boat race down the river and enjoy a session of river dipping.
Wild at Art...
Get creative with nature as we use natural materials to make art works along the river bank, hold a special gallery opening and get inspired by the seasons.
Wilderness Survival Skill...
Track, seek and scavenge your way along the river bank as we learn to survive in the wild. Build a shelter, learn to make fire and feast off the land. (8 years old plus only) Max 15
Parties are available Friday afternoons and Sundays all year round.
