  • Story Art - Start the party with a circle time story, selected by the birthday child from a list of favorite books.  Then move on to craft time to create an artistic souvenir inspired by your story.  This party also includes time in TotSpot!
For children 5 and up

  • Paint, Play and Party - NEW PREMIUM PARTY!  Celebrate your little masterpiece's big day with a party centered on creativity.  Party guests slip into smocks and step up to their easels to create their own frame-worthy piece of art.  Then, enjoy museum play before moving into your private party room.
