Birthday Parties

These parties are so much fun, your kids won't even realize they are learning something!

Choose from one of our favorite options or ask about having us tailor a party to your own theme!

We bring the party to you and take the mess out with us! Entertaining, educational and interactive presentations with an average of 5 hands-on activities per party and one take-home project.
