Your party questions answered!
There are lots of logistics to think about when organising a roomful of excited little people. Hopefully we can answer some of your questions and help with the organisation:
Do parents have to join in?
While we are happy for parents and friends to join in and remain in the room, we must insist that they remain quiet during the 45 minutes of entertainment. Talking parents are a distraction for the children and may make them less willing to join in. As organiser of the party we will ask you to make sure that this request is respected.
The parents of children at our younger Moosical Parties will need to join and help their children with some of the activities.
How long should the party run for?
Two hours is the perfect length of time for a children’s party. This way you have plenty of time for activities, entertainment and a yummy party tea.
When is the best time to hold your party?
Parties work well at lunch and tea time. A lunch party usually runs from 11am – 1pm and a tea party usually runs from 3pm – 5pm.
Examples of Molly Moocow party timings:
3.00pm – 3.30pm – Guests arrive and join in with suggested craft activity
3.30pm – 4.15pm – Molly Moocow party entertainment experience
4.15pm – 5.00pm – Tea time
Where to hold your party?
Every town has a selection of village halls, church halls and sports pavilions which are available to hire out at an hourly rate. Lots of schools also hire out their rooms for parties. Information on venues in your area can usually be found by doing a simple google search. Molly Moocow has entertained at lots of venues so feel free to ask for suggestions.
Can you hold the party at home?
Yes – if you have enough clear space and you don’t mind the potential mess that a roomful of children can bring!
How much space do you need
About 7 square metres
(But don’t forget space for the tea table!)
Do I need any equipment?
We will bring everything needed for your Molly Moocow Experience but you will need to provide the party tea and materials for the suggested Arrival Activity.
