Are you frantically searching online for a safe, affordable, enjoyable activity for your child’s birthday party? We’ve got you covered. Paintballing is fast-paced, super exciting and, when you come to PPK, stress free. 

WHY PAINTBALLING? 

As well as being a bucket load of fun, paintballing has a load of benefits for your child’s mental health as well as providing excellent exercise out in the fresh air. 

SCREEN-FREE TIME 

The amount of time children spend on screens has doubled in the last couple of decades according to research from market researchers Childwise, and we know parents like you are constantly looking for alternatives to entertain your kids and get them off their phones. There’s no room for boredom when you are running around competing with your friends, so paintballing is a great, engaging substitute for screen related activities. 

OUTDOOR EXERCISE 

Sports like paintballing can have a notable impact on a child’s holistic health. Time outside can help reduce one-fifth of the harmful effects of screen time, but it can be hard to get out and enjoy the natural world. Our outdoor zones provide children with plenty of space to be free, run around and burn off some of that never-ending energy. Physical exercise is one of many measures that can be used to prevent and treat obesity and it also benefits cognitive development, alleviating symptoms of mental health issues like anxiety and depression.

ENCOURAGES TEAMWORK 

Games like ‘Capture the Flag’ depend on effective communication and are ideal ways to include every member of the party. Kids can work together to strategise and come up with winning tactics. Teamwork improves skills like: 

  • Creativity – coming up with imaginative ideas and resourceful solutions 
  • Empathy – advancing emotional intelligence and cultivating compassion for peers 
  • Conflict resolution – giving kids a chance to practice this key skill in informal environments  
  • Co-operation – developing attentive listening skills and practising collaborative thinking 

MAKES MEMORIES

Working in teams together and discussing tactics over breaks is great way to build friendships and gives kids the chance to learn from their experiences. By remembering exciting moments, you can evaluate the way they acted which helps them overcome future challenges. 

All of these things contribute to long-lasting memories that help you relive moments of happiness. We guarantee your guests won’t want to go home and they’ll be talking about this for days to come. No need to be disappointed though, we’ll still be here next year and would love to see you again! 

GROWS CONFIDENCE AND RESILIENCE 

Being part of a team is great for growing confidence in young people. It helps them get out of their comfort zone and working together brings a strong sense of accomplishment with it. 

Confidence improves: 

  • Self-image – helping children feel good about themselves and their abilities 
  • Independence – promoting self-regulation and self-control 
  • Satisfaction – positively reinforcing their achievements
