As a parent we all want to make our children’s birthday is as special as possible. This includes hosting memorable birthday parties, but we all know how expensive they can be. No matter what your budget is there are loads of things you can do to throw a party your kids will certainly remember!

The experts here at Hatton Country World know exactly what’s needed to have a memorable and fun birthday party. So here are a few exciting ideas you could include when planning the next birthday party.

8 fantastic party ideas

Scavenger hunts

Imagine this: excitement, laughter and a sprinkle of friendly competition as your mini-adventurers explore fields, parks or woods looking for long lost treasure. Who needs party bags when the kids can fill their bags with their very own riches?!

Rain or shine, scavenger hunts can be completed in the colder months, as long as everyone wraps up warm! Hatton Country World’s country walks make the perfect.


Picnics are a fun party idea that can be as cheap or expensive as you like. You can hold these in your local park or here at Hatton Country World as we have fantastic country walks, perfect for letting the kids let off some steam before indulging in your picnic.

You could also pair this with field games like rounders, relay races and football to get them running around in the great outdoors, making memories with their friends.

Visit an adventure park

Adventure parks are a great way to create a memorable birthday for your children. At Hatton Adventure World our superslide mania, laser combat, and animal encounters are sure to make the best birthday party activities. From Guinea Pig villages to farmyard favourites every corner is jam-packed with excitement and wonder. Plus, we’ve got party packages to make your life easy, including things like animal feed, expert guides, and even party rooms!

If your child loves the outdoors, camping could be the perfect party idea. Imagine telling stories by a campfire, as you toast marshmallows under the twinkling night sky. Gather a small group of friends and start roasting marshmallows, have a barbeque or cook sausages for breakfast to give the kids an experience they don’t get everyday.

If you’re looking to host a camping party, Hatton Country World caters to tents, motorhomes and caravans, as well as having toilets and showers onsite for everyone’s comfort.

Oh and don’t forget, our pub is available for those looking for a well deserved pitstop!

Bird watching

If you’ve got little explorers who love wildlife, bird watching could be a great party idea that’s both educational and entertaining. You could do this at your local country park or woods or even go to a falconry show.

Bird spotting can be exciting and you can start by looking for the most common birds in the UK, such as:

  • Wren
  • Robin
  • House Sparrow
  • Woodpigeon
  • Blackbird
  • Chaffinch

This can give the children a sense of accomplishment as they’re more likely to spot them, as well as giving them topics to talk about among themselves. Getting everyone outdoors and exploring, especially at a young age can help develop self-confidence, make them aware of boundaries and improve their communication skills.

At Hatton Adventure World we have our falconry centre where children can watch fascinating shows, handle hawks and talk to our resident handler.

Outdoor games

We all know kids are full of energy, so why not prepare a fun filled day of outdoor games like obstacle courses, rounders, relay races or football. This will help promote good sportsmanship while the kids run around laughing and high fiving as their friends and teammates win games throughout the day.

So whether you’re looking to hold a perfect picnic, explore animal exhibits or go wild playing outdoor games, Hatton Country World has everything you need to hold the very best birthday party. Explore our attractions and party packages to see how they could fit in with your fun filled day.
