Our host will arrive 30min prior to the Lil’ Olympics start time. The host (with a little help from the birthday child) will split the guests into 4 teams. Each team is allocated a country they will be competing for! From the Olympics we have events such as Hammer Toss, Relay Race, Javelin, Gymnastics, Shot Put, Dodgeball and more. These events are interspersed with some classic birthday party favourites such as Sack Racing, Egg-and-Spoon Races and Tug-of-War.
At the end we bring all the kids together for a ribbon ceremony. Each kid receives a ribbon and the accolades of competing hard.
The format includes a 10min break in the middle for food and drink. Our hosts are trained in numerous events and will use their experience to adapt the exact structure to ensure that each party is the best party for the guests attending.

COVID 19 UPDATE
While remaining mindful of responsible social distancing measures, the stage 2 and 3 measure will allow us to provide fun and safe events for all our families. With a range of new safety, sanitisation and social distance policies now in place, Funtime is ready to get back to what it does best… BRINGING THE FUN
Lil’ Olympics events are best held in an outdoor location. Ideally, we look for a park near your home that has a flat grass area. If you have a very large yard, the parties can be done at home. If you are worried about weather then it is possible for us to use large halls or covered areas if you have access to appropriate spaces. While these spaces do allow for the party to happen, in our experience the outdoor park areas do provide the most fun parties.
A few suggestions to help your party run smoother.
- Limit the numbers, ask parents not to bring uninvited siblings along and not to hang around for the party if possible. Party numbers are normally small enough if kept limited to the suggested party capacities you will limit exposure.
- Do food packs – instead of a large bowl of chips, have mini packs. Separate named drink bottles, pre ordered food plates so the kids just take what is given instead of it being from communal platters. Cupcakes instead of whole cakes.
- Kids will be asked to wash up before the party starts, before the break and after the break and before the cake.
- Remind all parents if your child is feeling ill or showing symptoms of any of the 1000 germs kids carry to please keep them home and a play date will be orgainsed to make up for them missing the party in the future.
- Try and practice some sense of social distancing. An energetic outdoor party will keep the kids from being static. Indoors can still work but keep in mind your numbers that you are inviting.
We request that you don’t hand out any noise making party favours or party poppers until after the disco has finished. While our hosts are very capable, competing with a large group of kids all blowing whistles and popping streamers to be heard is a big ask for anyone.
The ideal number of kids for this party is 16 but we do allow you to go up to 24. This is for a number of reasons, including the number of children who can safely be supervised, the amount of equipment provided and the pace at which the games are played. In some cases we can cater for additional guests but this will need to be discussed with the office at time of booking.
For Lil’ Olympics event the ages 6-11 are ideal. The kids are that little bit older and more coordinated to allow for structured team based events.
