Happy New Year! (Are we still allowed to say that? I say, yes!)
It's been a while since our last post, but thought a new year would be a good excuse to write one.
Isn't it still strange getting used to reality? It now of course seems like ages ago when a lot of us spent endless days eating and drinking and watching films...
And then sudddenly, bam! Work, kids back to school, early nights, the humdrum of the routine. Well that's certainly true for me here at Nutty's Tow...Read Full Post »

Sometimes, when we have a children's party enquiry, we get asked if we charge less for a smaller number of children. The answer of course. is no.
Why? Well the reason why peple ask is they think that it's easier to entertain less children. Wrong! Sometimes, it can be a lot harder...If you have only 10 kids at a party and 2 of them are disruptve or hard to engage, this can affect the rest of the group so much more. If you have a group of 30 and say 4 or 5 are hard to engage, you have the...Read Full Post »

Often when I perosnally run parties, clients ask 'so as you work at weekends, you have a pretty easy week, right?'
Er, nope! What people don't quite realise is the amount of work that goes on every day to run a busy children's party company to help us get so many party bookings.
Firstly, there's the marketing side: checking our Google Adwords account is up to date, sharing testimonials and updating the web site, regular posts on social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) and p...Read Full Post »

Has your child recently been to a Nutty’s party? Have they come home raving about it? Has it captured their imagination so much, they keep talking about how Pirate Dan kept losing his map? Or how Fairy Sophie’s magic dust was so sparkly? Or how Danijel The Space Warrior took them to outer space and beyond?
Well, firstly, that’s brilliant for us. We love hearing about how much kids enjoy our parties.
But why not keep their enthusiasm going for stretching their ima...Read Full Post »

It's been around two months since our last blog. And although we love talking about news and stories regarding Nutty's, we also like to talk about other things to do with kids. Like slime.
Last year's big kids fad was the fidget spinner. Available in every newsagent and pound shop, kids went mad for these palm sized mini gadgets. Their purpose was pretty simple: to spin around. Quite what the kids actually got out of it still baffles me, although it's better than staring at ...Read Full Post »

Last week we had the pleasure again of running a three day Half Term Sports and Drama Camp with Moving Matters at Julian's Primary School in Streatham.
It went very well. And it was so lovely to see some of the regular kids back for more. Moreover, seeing them improve their sports and drama skills.
Sport and drama both require one very important human ingredient: confidance. And sometimes all we have to do as teachers and facilitators is to encourage them, make the activitie...Read Full Post »
