Having successfully pitched at one of our recent Community Soup events, Jess has now received funding to expand her business in new and exciting ways. We asked Jess to share some of her ideas for keeping the children entertained over the holidays without spending a fortune.
Always popular at birthday parties, the traditional piñata can take on many different forms from donkeys to balloons (depending on how creative you are feeling). Have a go at making your own by following these simple steps.
What you’ll need:
Newspaper, PVA glue,a balloon, paints, and some sweets.
A brilliant way to get your little ones engaged in the food they eat is to bake with them in the kitchen. Summer is the perfect time of year to use traditional English strawberries and there are plenty of recipes online for strawberry and whipped cream cupcakes!
You can keep the kids busy for hours searching around the house for the sweets from the piñata. A great way to make a simple treasure hunt a bit more fun is to decorate an egg box to create a real life treasure chest filled with small sweets. Make up a series of clues if you’re feeling creative.
Hold a talent show in your very own front room and let the kids get together to show off their hidden talent with music, singing, dancing and anything else that makes them unique. If you want to set up a cheap karaoke session in your home, then there are loads of videos on YouTube which provide the backing track for your favourite songs.
If you would like to get in contact with Jess for details of upcoming kids’ events or parties you can check her out on Twitter.
If you’d like to follow Jess’ footsteps then head along to the Women in Business open day. Monday 11th September from 12.30pm - 3pm.
