Party and private event FAQ

What do you do if I have a mixed age group of children?
That's okay, we will set up a mix of activities to make sure everyone is entertained. It is quite normal to have a range of ages at birthday parties or events. In our Crafty Chimps session's the activities we have available cater for a broad range of age's and abilities as children use the activities/resources differently. We are there to supervise, facilitate and support the children throughout the time we are there with the activities.

We will also have options at the activities for the children, for example, younger children will be more hands-on and will explore mainly through senses while older children will start to engage with our activities use scientific concepts and techniques, role play and experiment.

What do you do in my party or private event?
During the session we will:

  • Set up 2 art and craft stations which are designed around your chosen theme.ย  This can be a craft with pasting, making an item, painting, etc.
    We will have alternates available for the mix age groups, for example, older children will make an item from scratch and for younger children, we will pre-make the items and they would paint it or stick on basic things.
  • We will set up a play dough play space with resources such as scissors rolling pins cutters, younger children would be more hands-on exploring with activity but we have options available depending on child's level which we supervise.
  • Depending on how many children attending we will have our signature messy play stations which could consist of bubble foam, slime, cloud dough, dirt, rice, water etc.
  • We will have play spaces set up attached to your chosen theme.
  • Group time with singing/dancing to songs attached to your chosen theme
  • We are there to facilitate, supervise, and of course, entertain the children throughout the time we are there. and of course clean up the mess when its all done! ๐Ÿ™‚

What space will I need to provide for Crafty Chimps session?
This is based on the number of children attending. We would like at least 6 meters by 4 meters for 10 children. This can be done in 2 spaces if you don't have one big space. Pergola and grass areas are suitable, or garage/carport space. We will talk with you and plan around your space.

What if I want a theme that's not in the list?
This is definitely possible but may incur an additional fee if we do not have items you are wanting.

What if I need to add additional children, why is there any additional charge for them?
7 days prior to your party or event we will contact you for a list of children's names attending the event.

We will have their craft items with their names on them. Children who are not paid for will not receive these items.ย  We totally understand the complexities of people attending an event and that sometimes this can be out of your control we will have a couple of extra activities or craft items on the day and will be more than accommodating.

The additional charge per child covers the following:

  • Craft for items that we plan for the individual child
  • Additional messy play stations to keep children engaged and not waiting turns.

What is the maximum number for children that can attend the party or event?
There is no maximum amount of children just as long as you have the space for them and we will plan enough of our activities for them to be entertained.

I don't have childsize tables, What happens in this case?
Crafty Chimps has Childsize table for hire each table is $5.00 each. We need at minimum of 2 tables, 3 is preffered.

I would like Plaster moulds for my party and would like personalised lables on them?
Yes, We can make a personalised thank you label from host for an extra 50cents per Playdough, Plaster, or Craft Pack.
