Is your little one a dab hand with a wooden spoon and a set of pans, or do they love a mini-disco in the living room? We’ve discovered the perfect party for mini musical maestros in the form of a Music Monkeys session in your own home, garden or local park – with all the noisiest of instruments provided!
A Music Monkeys party leader will come to a location of your choice armed with drums, maracas, tambourines, bubbles and a play parachute for up to an hour of sing-along songs (including requests), music-making and games. There are even cuddly rabbits for everyone, for the favourite bunny songs.
Once you’ve chosen where you’d like to host the party, Music Monkeys will work with you to make sure you have everything you need on the day – they can even provide brightly coloured tables and chairs for guests to enjoy the party food on. Musical instruments and games will be tailored according to the age of the birthday boy or girl.
You will need to supply your own food, so it’s either start prepping the triangular sandwiches and fruit platters, or order in. This is Abu Dhabi, after all. Your catering options here are endless! (See this month’s Must List, from page 4, for details of a brilliant new party catering service).
A 45-minute to one-hour party for up to 15 children costs Dhs600 and it’s Dhs900 for up to 30 children, including prizes for any games. Child-friendly tables and chairs with covers to match your theme will cost an additional Dhs300 for 15 children and Dhs600 for up to 30.
Don’t forget to obtain permission from your local community management if you decide to host a party in a communal park. And if you opt to host a garden party, make sure there’s plenty of room for the play parachute to be put up.
This is a beautiful, wholesome party for one to five year-olds with an engaging mix of music and games. Perfect for a winter garden party!
