Outdoor Birthday Party Ideas

Outdoor Birthday Party Ideas

… We’ve got you sorted! 

It’s that time of the year again .. yes, your child’s birthday is around the corner and you haven’t planned anything yet, instead of pulling your hair out with kids running amok at home, try an outdoor birthday party – we have heaps of ideas for you.  Every year your child’s birthday party seem to become an event that has bigger and better expectations every year. The same predicament flies through your head “should I have it at home and risk children flying everywhere and making a huge mess or should I host it out of the house that may cost more?”.

At Jumpin’ Around we’ve got a few suggestions to help plan that perfect outdoor birthday party:

1) Remember your budget, and stick to it.

It’s important not to lose sight of your budget. Don’t let the party get bigger than your wallet.  Usually you think that by having the party at home you are saving costs, but by the end of the day, you realise you have overspent, exhausted, and have a huge mess to contend with.  You’ll be surprised at how cost effective and easy throwing a party off-site can be.  Start off by working out how much you actually want to spend on the party before you do anything else. Utilising a park / bbq area is a cost effective way to plan an outdoor party, as all you will need to add is some decorations (cheap at Kmart or Big W) balloons, tablecloths etc.

outdoor birthday party ideas2) Organise the party venue – park or back yard. 

Every child and parent loves being outside in fresh air. Firstly, it’s healthy and usually includes some form of exercise for the kids.  It’s also a hassle-free alternative to hosting it inside your home, when more often time than not, the clean-up process could be a lot longer than the party itself! 15 kids under 5 running through your home could get messy so wear the kids out by playing games outside. An option could be hiring one of our fantastic jumping castles – the kids will spend hours bouncing around and being active.  We can also hire out generators so you are not limited to an outdoor space close to power – including public parks and playgrounds.

Outdoor birthday party ideas

3) What does your child want?

Kids have big imaginations, so be specific when asking your child what they want out of their party.  Ask them what theme they’d like everything to be or what they’d like to do with their friends. Answering questions like these will give you an idea of what’s really important and stimulate ideas for venue, invitation and food options.

4) Make a bullet point list!!

Writing a list will help you sort out logistics, what you need, how many etc.  Party favours, decorations, guest list, invitations and presents – all these things that make your party come to life are important, but easily forgotten. At Jumpin’ Around we can help to plan the perfect outdoor birthday party.

5Have fun

Probably the most important point! The party isn’t a day for you to be pulling your hair out. Now that all the nitty-gritty of the planning process is complete, sit back and watch your party masterpiece play out, with cake in hand, and enjoy your child growing that year older.

A Clean Jumping Castle Hire (for a stress-free, care-free party!)

Clean Jumping Castle Hire (Brisbane Southside) makes for a FUN care-free party!

So ta Jumpin’ Around headquarters we want to ensure you know that with our jumping castle hire (based in the Southside of Brisbane), we are here to make your day as easy and care-free as possible.  That’s why with our hire, we provide a clean jumping castle, unlike other jumping castle suppliers, who may charge an extra fee for cleaning services.

Some tips that we use for ensuring every jumping castle hire is clean and ready to go for your child’s (or adults!) big day:

Our jumping castles are always packed DRY and CLEAN.

We ensure after each hire the bounce house or jumping castle is packed away tightly, and is dry before storing to prevent mould.

If required, we will use a tarpaulin underneath the jumping castle prior to use.

Particularly if there is sharp objects or rough ground.

No food or drink policy

Obviously sticky lollies and drinks will create a huge mess, so it’s just easier to keep them right out of the way of the jumping castle while in use.

We roll not drag our jumping castles

This helps to ensure no holes can be made while inflating or packing up.

We also have our jumping castles regularly safety checked to Australian Standards as it’s our first priority is the safety of the children and adults that hire them.

So for the cleanest, best service, competitive prices and friendly locally-based southside Brisbane owners, Jumpin’ Around are here to service any party requirements you may have with our fantastic jumping castle hire in Brisbane!

5 Halloween Snacks for Party Ideas

Halloween Snacks for Party – Ideas and Recipes

So you have been invited to a Halloween Party and need to bring a plate of ghoulish snacks? We have some great halloween snacks and recipes that you can use — and impress everyone with these easy ideas!

1.Dracula’s Dentures. These are really impressive and super easy to make! Simply use cookie dough (you can purchase cookie dough from supermarket in tubes) and bake it to it’s directions and cut each piece into two. Spread red icing mixture and place mini marshmallows and top with remaining half of cookie.

2. Bat Cookies … simply use a bat shaped cookie cutter to cut up tortillas and fry them until golden and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. YUM!

3. Dark Chocolate Pretzel Screams… this is just too cool. And don’t forget delicious! The perfect combination of sweet and salty.  Dip your pretzels into melted chocolate (could be dark, milk or white chocolate) and stick on candy googly eyes (found in the baking section of the supermarket). Leave in fridge to set. EASY.

4. Mummified hot dogs are a show stopper (not to mention utterly delicious). 3 ingredients is all it takes! Hot dogs (or you could use cheerios for mini ones), puff pastry and mustard (optional). Simply cut the pastry (store bought) into strips, wrap around each dog (leave the face free).  Line on baking tray and bake for 15 minutes until puffed and golden.  Cool down and add mustard for each eye with a toothpick. Sorted!

5. Last but not least is a bit of a grotesque dish, but it’s mighty tasty! Utilise your carved pumpkin for this dish – add guacamole dip as the picture depicts and surround with black corn chips. Ewwwww but oh so cool!

Toddler Party Ideas (The Top 10 Guide)

Toddler Party Ideas and Inspo!

Your baby is hitting the terrible two’s, and you want to throw a great toddler party so every little person can have a great time (without too many tantrums right!!). Well here is our list of top 10 toddler party ideas to get your next party rockin!

Toddler Party Ideas

  1. Soft Play Hire – Kind of like an outdoor playcentre! Think balls, foam mats and lots of soft structures to build as you wish. This will keep the kids entertained and is safe, brightly coloured and fun.  There are many different shapes and sizes so the party can be held in any location / room.
  2. Treasure Hunt – every child (big and small) love a good treasure hunt. Place toys, objects, and lollies around the back yard and set up clues for the little one’s to find them.  You can do it in colours for the younger toddlers.
  3. Bubbles – a bubble machine can provide hours of entertainment for kids! Some machines can blow huge bubbles. How many can you catch / pop is a great game!
  4. The Snake Race is like an egg and spoon race, but with the snakes over their noses – they have to run from one side to the other without it dropping.
  5. Set up a Shaving Cream station – this is a messy and fun activity that is best done outdoors. Simply squirt some shaving cream onto a tray (ensure there is plastic cover underneath) with a few dollops of food colour and let them squelch and mix the colours.
  6. You can’t go past a good game of ‘What’s the Time Mr Wolf‘ – a favourite for any child aged between 1 and 10!!
  7. Duck Duck Goose – need I say more?! The BEST GAME EVER!
  8. Freeze Dancing – Put on some tunes and let them dance away until you press ‘pause’ – the last one to FREEZE is out!
  9. Fishing Game – Pop some prizes into a large box and attach a paper clip to each. The kids can ‘fish’ for a prize with their stick and string with a magnet attached to each. Kids really love this game, so you may need lots of small prizes.
  10. Jumping castle is an effective way to keep them outside, and busy for hours. At Jumpin’ Around we have a huge selection, and some smaller castles that are perfect for the toddlers.

    • Ingredients: Mini frankfurters / mini rolls / tomato sauce and mustard
