Fantastic!

Eleanor is brilliant! The crafts are well organised and the kids are always entertained. She is fantastic with the children and they all love her. It was a fantastic party, the kids had messy crafts and I had no cleaning up! I really recommend having a party with Eleanor. My son says it was the best birthday ever! They took home some slime and a pirate treasure chest, what more could a 6 year old want?!
