TOP 5 BIRTHDAY PARTIES FOR GIRL HEROES

Our girls are so much more than their toe nails. Pass on the pedi-party and give your daughter a party fit for a girl hero.

Aim high

Build her courage. Let your daughter and her friends challenge themselves in the tree-tops on an exciting obstacle course in the treetops.

Or scale the heights at an indoor rock-climbing centre

 

Buzz their Brains

Girls outsmart boys in maths and science but are dropping out of the subjects that will secure them a career in STEM (Science, technology, engineering and maths) industries due to lack of confidence.

Let’s keep those brains buzzing with a work-out at Scienceworks

or the Legoland Discovery Centre

Feed the love

Nurture her caring side and love of animals at The Collingwood Children’s farm or the Melbourne Zoo

For a real gold class party, skip the hummer and let her dive with dolphins

 

Let them run away to the circus!

Let them shine! Build their confidence and performance skills while hanging upside down on a trapeze!

 

 

Get them fit for anything!

Girls aren’t meant to sit around – get them doing stuff! Develop a healthy sense of competition and fitness with a sports party

They can even have a glow in the dark sports party!

Or just jump!
