*Bouncy Castle Alternatives:
If you haven’t got a big enough garden or are finding that the weather is causing problems, it’s a good idea to back up your plans and hire a bouncy castle. This can make a party a lot more exciting, even for kids! It’s a great idea to book one early as they tend to be popular and will book up quickly.
