Paint and making play dough…Sounds great…But Won’t The Children Get Messy?
After attending lots of parties and doing these fun activities with so many children, we have just about perfected this part of the party without making a mess! We use aprons and messy mats to prevent paint going onto your floor and your children's clothing. These activities are also optional and can be removed from the party package.
What will happen at my Panorama Drama Party?
Our parties begin with a series of warm-up activities, getting children introduced to the theme of the party, introducing who we are as Panorama Drama and getting them used to the space they will be playing in. Next we play a series of games, all tailored to the theme. After that we come to our exciting interactive story, where our experienced applied theatre facilitators will tell a story that involves all the children. Using drama, the children are not simply told a story but are immersed within it. They play characters in the story and with the use of our props and tricks we encourage the use of imagination. Kids enter a make-believe world where they solve something, find something or simply explore a new world. We then engage in various reflective activities such as painting, drawing or discussing about what they have experienced or learnt from the story. Unlike a normal workshop, the birthday party also has a special section which provides children with a chance to perform something! Then as we bid farewell, we have one final chat about what we have all enjoyed during the day. Of course, we cannot leave without singing happy birthday!
What Preparation Do I Need To Do For The Panorama Drama Party?
Our parties last 90-minutes so if children need to eat, it would be great for them to eat before or after the party so they are full of energy and ready to engage with the session. Also, we use some electrical equipment so we would need a power socket. Some games may use chairs, so if chairs are not available at your venue please let us know during the booking process so that we can adapt our games to suit your venue. Other than that, feel free to decorate the space and have the kids in costume for whichever theme you have chosen.
Where can my party be held?
We travel to your venue and we are a company that caters for your needs. We simply require a venue that has enough space for active, practical games to be played. If it is a sunny day and you have a large garden, we can do our workshop outside too.
How many children can my party be held for?
We lead parties for up to 20 participants. If you have more participants attending, please contact us and we will do our best to arrange this.
How safe is a Panorama Drama Party?
Our staff are employed on the basis that they are DBS-checked and suitable to work with children.
