Calling all adventurous types, here’s a party that’ll have you jumping (and swinging, climbing, ziplining) for joy! Aventura, Dubai’s first nature and zip-lining park set within a gorgeous green ghaf forest offers a seriously cool option for little ones aged 6 years and up. From obstacle courses between the trees (including ziplines, bridges, balancing trunks, ropes and all things thrilling) to a celebration on the ground (if you can convince the kids to come down!) with lunch and cake and a decorated dedicated area for chilling in. Oh and there’s no need to fear, a party host will accompany the group at all times and make sure that everyone is safe and doing what they should be. Hooray!

So how about this for chilled – you can combine a birthday visit to Legoland or Motiongate with an after party at Ella’s Creamery, the sweetest place for a party at Dubai Parks and Resorts. First up this venue is so pretty it’ll make for gorgeous photos – and secondly the kids will love all the activities, especially the ‘create-your-own-extreme-ice-cream’ workshop (so much fun!). Combine this option with a little extra styling by Fleur at Miss Faye And Lion (read on to find out more about this awesome mama) and you’ve got a perfect party with the ultimate cool factor.
