    Party Project Options (Premier and Premier Plus packages only)

    Please choose one of the following: 

    Light Up Wand, DIY Flashlight, or an LED project (Parrot, Robot, Pokéball, Flower, Unicorn) (Best for ages 6-8) Our staff will lead the birthday child and their friends in creating an LED light circuit using an LED light and a coin cell battery. Once they complete the circuit, they can decorate a wooden wand or project with gems and paint markers to their liking. After decorating, they’ll attach their light to create an LED light up project! 

    Slime (Best for ages 6-12) Our staff will lead the birthday child and their friends to combine glue, colored water, and liquid starch to make slime! They also have the option of choosing two add-ins: colored glitter and/or foam beads. (Depending on availability, there is an option of choosing glow-in-the-dark or color-changing powder to slime for an additional cost) 

    DIY Glitter Tile (Best for ages 6-9) Our team will lead the birthday child and friends in decorating their own glitter tile that will stick to any brand of magnetic tiles. Each child will receive their own glitter tile, and a choice of gems, charms, glitter and name letters to decorate the tile. 

    Motorized Fan (Best for ages 9-12) Our staff will lead the birthday child and their friends in creating a motor circuit with a battery pack and a motorized fan. After making their circuit, they can decorate the tube that the circuit will go through with gems and paint markers. Then, insert their circuit and attach glow forge pieces for the top and bottom of the tube to finish their DIY fan!

    Crazy LEGO® Bot (Best for ages 9-12) Our staff will lead the birthday child and their friends in creating a circuit with a battery pack and a motor. They will put together materials like a LEGO base, Genius Gems brick tracks and wooden laser cut pieces to test out different shaped wheels. Then, by attaching their motor circuit on top, they will have a wacky LEGO® bot! 

    Spin Art Machine (Best for ages 9-12) Our staff will lead the birthday child and their friends in creating a motor circuit with a battery pack and a motorized fan. They will attach their circuit to a glow forge base and add a base for their paper on top of the fan. Then they can tape a piece of paper on top, turn on their circuit, and make some spin art!
