Birthday Party Appearances
Since our very first birthday party appearance, in 2011, we have been invited to hundreds more over the years. We often attend all the children's parties in one family, and are even invited back to the same child's birthday in subsequent years! The creatures are very popular birthday guests! You will find details of our party packages, and some of the feedback we have received below. Our weekends book up quite far in advance so it is never too early to get in touch!
"Anyone looking for something different for a party, something that has the children's eyes popping out, their mouths wide open, and at times silent (!) but so much fun and educational, then I personally could not recommend The Creature Teachers enough. They have come to two of our children's birthday parties and on both occasions the children and the adults were raving about them"
"A huge thank you to The Creature Teachers! My son has returned from his friend's party and can't stop talking about the animals! He wasn't even sure if he would go as he was nervous! You are that amazing, kind and patient that he told me he stroked all the animals and he loved it!"
"I can't thank you enough for making my daughters' birthday party so amazing. Everyone loved your display and thought it was excellent. The way you spent extra time with the birthday girls and included them in the display gave it a personal touch and made them feel special. From enquiring, booking, to the actual party the service I have received has been quick, friendly, informative, and very helpful"
Birthday Party Creature Encounter Packages
We offer different options for birthday parties, suited to children (and adults!) of 3 years of age and upwards. Our under 4’s Creature Encounter differs slightly from the over 4’s , and we will discuss what encounter and creature line up will be best suited to your group when you get in touch.
Each of your guests will get hands on with each of the 6 handling animals, which includes creepy crawlies, scaly reptiles and furry creatures. They will experience trained animals in action, watching the rat obstacle course and the barn owl flight to the birthday child and their chosen friend.
Each encounter is one hour long, with up to 8 different species for everyone to meet. You will receive a personalised invitation in your confirmation email.
For children 4 years or under, Creature Lisa will come along with the creatures by herself if there are ten children or less. For more than 10 children, under 4 years of age, a second Creature Teacher will come along to ensure each child gets plenty of time to interact safely, and happily with each creature.
For children 5 years or over, Creature Lisa will come along with with the creatures by herself if there are 15 children or less. For more than 15 children, a second Creature Teacher will come along to ensure each child gets plenty of time to interact safely and happily with each creature.
The maximum group size for two Creature Teachers is 30. If you are expecting more handling guests, a third staff member will come along.
Prices start at £120 plus a travel charge for the smaller audience size. There is an extra charge for the larger audience size, as two Creature Teachers will be in attendance.
We travel a max of 1 hour from Bournemouth for a 1 hour birthday party. Morning slots are 11am to 12pm or earlier, afternoon slots are 3pm to 4pm, or later.
