Our craft studio is a great birthday venue for children’s parties. Children will have a blast stretching their creative muscles and you won’t have a giant mess to clean up afterwards! Plus, you don’t have to spend time and money coming up with games to entertain the children or party favors for them to take home at the end.

Our Most Popular Projects for Kids Birthday Parties

Creature Catchers

Our Creature Catchers , a creative play on the traditional dream catcher, are a favorite among kids’ birthday parties. With 2 styles to choose from (unicorn or sea creature) children will be able to choose the style that most appeals to them. This project is great for children 7-10 years of age.

The birthday girl or boy can pre-select the paint, yarn, flower and pipe cleaner colors prior to the party. Alternatively, if you would like each child to be able to choose their own colors, we can create a special webpage for your event with all the available color choices. You can then send the link to the parents of all the children who have RSVP’d so that they may go online and select their own style and colors prior to the party.

Traditional Dream Catchers

Our traditional Dream Catchers are a popular craft for children 8-12 years of age. Children will choose from a selection of fabric colors during the party for their hoop and the fringe.

Donut Signs

You’d be hard pressed to find a kid out there that doesn’t love donuts, which is why our donut signs are a great craft for kids birthday parties.

At the request of the birthday girl, this “DONUT worry, be happy!” sign was a customization of our best dad/mom donut signs.

Children will choose their own paint colors for the board, donut, icing and sprinkles, during the birthday party.

Great for Birthday Parties for 5 Year Olds

Build Your Own Unicorn or Monster

Our Unicorn and Monster crafts are great for younger children. With 2 styles to choose from, children will be able to choose the style that most appeals to them.

While the felt flowers for the unicorn will be pre-cut prior to the party (colors pre-selected by the birthday girl or boy), children will get to choose their own colors of paint, ears, horn, hair and antenna during the party.

Paintable Tote Bags

While our paintable tote bags are very popular with children 7-10 years of age, they are also easy and fun for those as young as 5 years old. Children will place a stencil on the bag and then paint over it, making the design easy for children of all ages to create.

We have 5 different designs to choose from (not just unicorn) and we can also create custom designs. Children will get to choose their own paint and glitter colors at the party.

Instructor-led Parties

Our studio is designed to allow people in a party the ability to create whatever project they want. Meaning, everyone in the party does not have to create the same thing. We accomplish this by providing self-guided tutorials (instructions with pictures and/or videos) for each of our projects, allowing you to create your project at your own pace.

However if you would like your children’s birthday party project to be taught by an instructor, we offer that as well. In order to offer an instructor-led class, you’ll need to choose a single project for each of the children to create. In select circumstances, we may be able to offer two different projects for your party, if the two projects have similar steps in order to create it. For an instructor-led class with two different project options, contact us for more info.

If you have a group of 10 or more children, an instructor can be provided for your party for no additional fee. For parties with 9 children or fewer, we can provide an instructor-led class for an additional fee. The fee will depend on the number of children and the project you select. For parties of 9 children or less, contact us for pricing to add an instructor. You are not required to have an instructor, it is simply an option if you prefer one over using our self-guided tutorials (instructions with pictures and/or videos) that come with each project.


Pricing for each of our craft projects is listed on our website, in the browse projects section.

Length of Time for your Party

You will have 2.5 hours at our studio for your party. Most children’s projects take 1 to 1.5 hours to complete. You can use the remainder of the time for eating, drinking and/or opening gifts.

Age Requirements for Children

With the exception of projects utilizing power tools, we do not have a minimum age requirement that children need to be in order to work on a project at our studio. Our projects are generally recommended for ages 5 and up, however younger children are welcome to create a project with the help of a parent/guardian. Most children’s projects list a recommended age. The age that we recommend means a child of that age or older, should be able to complete the project with little to no assistance. Children under the recommended age would need assistance from a parent/guardian.

Food, Drink and Decorations

You are welcome to bring food and non-alcoholic beverages to our studio for your party. We have a BYOB permit which allows customers to bring alcoholic beverages after 4pm daily. You are welcome to bring decorations for your table(s) and chairs.
