Birthdays are good for you...
the more you have, the longer you live!
Our birthday party packages have been created with FUN in mind! We have all the supplies you need and we will even clean up the mess afterwards! Come experience a one of a kind art birthday party for someone you love (yes that includes yourself). All of our parties are customizable to your needs and age groups, and everyone will leave with lots of art and memories. All parties include the space rental fee, one of the themes below, and cool art projects based on your chosen theme (that all of your guests can bring home!). Our birthday parties cater to ages 2 years and up.
Bring your own food, cake and gifts bags. We will provide 2 tables for you to use in a separate room to put your food and snacks on. We also have a freezer for your ice cream cake! Arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled birthday party to set up your food etc. You must provide all of your own plates, cups, cutlery, etc. (and don’t forget a knife to cut your cake and bring a lighter for candles!)
Our birthday parties were designed for 12 participants and last 2 hours. The first hour is for fun art and projects, the second hour is for food, gifts, and cake!
Choose your themes here:
Ages 2-6 years, adult supervision required
For this theme, it’s all about process art play! We will have 7 open-ended activities set up for the children to dive into as soon as they get in the door. We will have a potion making station, clay sculptures, open-ended painting on a watercolour paper (every child gets to paint and bring home an 8 x 10 water colour paper,) salad spinner art to make and bring home, painting and washing unicorns, ponies, insects, or dinosaurs (or all!), dye painting on hanging fabric, and ice and salt sculpture painting. There is no formal instruction for this birthday party, staff simply guide and encourage creativity so each child can freely explore all the stations at their interest and pace. These activities will be available for the duration of the party, after the first hour of the birthday, the remainder of the party is used to have food, cake, and opening gifts.
Ages 7+, adult supervision required
Tie dye is an old-school good-time! Keep the mess out of your house and let’s have a tie die party at The Art Lab. Everyone gets a T-shirt. Here is what typically happens at a Tie Dye Birthday :
As everyone arrives we have tie dye paint spinner art to keep us busy while guests arrive. When everyone is there we start Tie Dye!! We provide one t-shirt per participant, and offer various sizes, everyone will bring their t-shirt home with care instructions. After we tie dye we splatter paint to some fun music! When that is done we usually have about 45 minutes left for food, cake and gifts :). You guys pack up your things, and we will clean up the mess so you can continue celebrating your day!
Little Fairies Ages 5-8 , adult supervision required
Our Little Fairy themed party is so magical! We make fairy wands, fairy houses, paper woodland flower crowns, mini fairy gardens, and fairy dust necklaces.
Fierce Fairies Ages 9-13, drop off encouraged.
Our Fierce Fairy party is one step cooler than our Little Fairies party. For this theme we use glue guns and hemp for flower crowns, We make layered dust vile necklaces. Fairy houses are a must, and we make funky wands!
These activities usually last up to roughly an hour, the remaining hour is for food, gifts, cake and presents!
Ages 7+, adult supervision required
It’s Slime Time! This party is a gooey fun mess where we make 2 types of decorated slime, a clear glue slime, and a white glue slime (NO BORAX).
Salad Spinner Art will be set up for guests to play with while everyone arrives, along with lazy-susan art. When everyone has arrived IT’S SLIME TIME!
The best part is decorating, colouring, and playing with our slime! We will be blowing bubbles with our slime, mashing it, making fart noises, and of course stretching it as far as we can! When that is done we usually have just enough time to splatter paint before having food, cake and gifts :). You guys pack up your things, and we will clean up the mess so you can continue celebrating your day!
