Q. What is the party activity like?

Activities are always creative and physically engaging, and may be designed around any theme or interest. Teaching artists will contact the party family at least a week before the party to go over desired theme & logistics. Past themes have included: cartoons, mermaids, musicals, ballerinas, super heroes, and many more. The sky (and your child’s imagination) is the limit!
