Kids Maker Party (ages 5-11)

We offer a variety of fun and creative maker parties for kids of all ages. Our workshop parties are super fun and no stress. Think birthdays, class socials, Parents' Night Out, or a new twist on a playdate. Best for kiddos turning 5+

PARTY THEMES (choose one):

-Junk Robots/Animals: Our most popular and long-running party theme! We’ll use wooden parts, screwdrivers, and loads of cool junk and loose parts to design and create either a robot buddy or animal friend.

-Wooden Rolling Toys: We’ll use a wood base, real wooden wheels and axles, loads of scrap wood, and loose parts to invent fantastic rolling toys.

-Simple Machines Challenge: We’ll explore all of the simple machines like pulleys, ramps, wheels, levers, and screws. Makers will have access to loads of tools, supplies, and materials to invent their own simple machines. Whether your kiddo is an aspiring sculptor, inventor, engineer, or builder, this challenge is fun for all.

-String Art: In this classic craft, makers will design and color a wood base then hammer nails like a dot-to-dot before stringing colorful floss through the nails to create a super sweet work of art.

-Stuffies (best for kids turning 7+): We’ll use colorful felt to design, cut and hand-sew our own stuffies. We can customize this theme on the house: animals, friendly monsters, eye pillows, etc.

-Miniature Diorama: Each maker will receive a wooden backdrop to create a tiny world of their own. Makers will have access to loads of materials including loose parts, wood, and felt, We’ll even use oven-bake clay for details like food and animals.

-Cardboard Castles: Make it dreamy or spooky, it’s all good. We’ll provide a basic cardboard castle for makers to assemble and decorate using paint, loose parts, and more. We’ll include four peg dolls to create a cast of castle characters, too!
