Testimonials

 

Great party idea. Barbara kept eight lively 6/7 year old girls focused and entertained for the whole hour (without raising her voice!!) Really impressed by the imaginative craft ideas which she tailored specifically to our mermaid theme. As an added bonus we didn't have to worry about party bags as one of the activities was to make and decorate these. A great party for children who enjoy arts and crafts and it worked perfectly for this age group. Highly recommended! - Eve M.

Barbara came for the 9th anniversary of my daughter and animated a “bird on a perch” craft activity with 6 other girls. They enjoyed so much creating and leaving with such a beautiful and poetic object. Barbara was wonderful, patient and inspiring. I recommend!!!
Thanks Barbara again. - Caroline D.

Paperbirds organised a Pirate Art Party for my son's 6th birthday recently. All the children had a fantastic time making their treasure maps and treasure chests which they got to take home with them as keepsakes. I would highly recommend her - the kids were focused for a good hour or so making their creations and were so proud of themselves at the end! - Narelle M.

Barbara patiently taught watercolour techniques to the guests at my daughter’s 10th birthday party and helped them to produce beautiful pieces of work to take home afterwards. - Claire S.

We had a lovely unicorn party with Paperbirds for my daughter's 6th birthday. She kept the girls fully engaged and happy for the entire time she was with them, and at the end of the party all of them were super proud of their art work and happily showing them to their parents. Barbara came up with really great ideas perfect for that age group and she came loaded with supplies. - Nazli K.

We had an amazing party with Paperbirds for my son’s 4th birthday party. There were almost 30 kids and Barbara and her team managed to get them engaged and entertained trough out the arts session and the kids were thrilled to take home their dinosaur piece of art. My son and his friends loved the party and the parents were also really impressed. I recommend Barbara without hesitation! - Maria P.
