Having a children’s party? Keep young ones amused with Naty D’s interactive show of singing and dancing to both traditional and modern music — adults enjoy it too! As part of the entertainment, treat your guests to Naty D’s glitter tattoos. They last for up to one week and come in a wide choice of designs — they can also be custom-made to the theme of the party.

The children are shown how to use strips of brightly printedpapertodecorate items such as a model of their initials — these are also fabulous as table centres.
