Explorer party


Setting the scene

  • Use camo print and camping equipment, such as lanterns, firewood and maps to really set the scene.
  • Collect glass jars a couple of weeks before the party to put plastic insects and spiders into.
  • Let the boys play "survivor" games- organise an obstacle course, set up a tug-of-war game.
  • Download our adventure maze placemats here.
  • Make a green jelly mould and place plastic insects onto the goo for a fascinating table effect. A frog swimming in the children's juice will also fascinate and delight your guests.

Friendly delight

  • Download our adventure party invites here.
  • Simply cut out the first leaf and stick it onto the main invite so that the guests will have to "explore" to find the details of the party.
  • Give adventurous guests all they'll need for a spot of exploring in their Survival Pack party packs.
  • Place sweets, plastic toy binoculars, a plastic specimen jar (available at toy stores) and a small fruit juice in the middle of a large chequered cloth.
  • Tie the ends together and attach to a dowel stick.
