One of the top 10 awesome birthday party places

MakerKids was perfect for my son ‘s birthday party. He and his friends love to build stuff so the hands on activities kept them engaged the whole time. The staff member who helped was fantastic and it was a breeze to arrange. I’d highly recommend MakerKids and their birthday party packages

Thank you for existing so my son could have his best birthday party ever. The instructor, Graham, was awesome! So friendly and knowledgeable and patient. A great time was had by all!

Whether your little maker is into Minecraft or LED lights, MakerKids has the ideal party for your child. These are just some of the options for shindigs that run 2 hours long. Cost varies depending on the number of guests and the length of the party, but packages start at a 2 hour party for fewer than 10 kids, which includes an instructor-led activity, supplies, party space, one staff member to help with the event, set-up and clean-up. Parents are welcome to bring in their own refreshments such as drinks and cake.

I wanted to send you a quick email to let you know that the birthday party today was great! The instructor and your other 2 helpers were fantastic! Many parents are now looking into your other programs.

Reserve Your Child’s Birthday Party: Robotics, Coding or Minecraft

Your child will learn the foundations of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), while building key social and change-making skills. Kids will create their own inventions in our award-winning birthday parties.

Mini MakerKids Parties

Welcome Mini MakerKids! This program is designed for little ones who like to think big. Kids will learn how to create and make using various platforms and gadgets. Kids will be exposed to both technical and 21st-century skills, like creativity and confidence. Based on STEM education, kids will build a strong foundation for out-of-the-box thinking, coding and how computers work. Using logic and design, kids will make something amazing and out of this world.

Sampler Party: Make it Electric! (Gr. 1+)
Moving through all three of the topics we offer at MakerKids, kids discover the role that electricity plays in each. Starting off by making an interactive Microbit robot, kids continue on to program a video game in Scratch.

Coding Camps for Kids

Coding Birthday Party

Video games can open up a whole new world of imagination and creativity. Coding your own video game pushes kids to explore different possibilities and scenarios. Kids will create their own games and play other kids’ games too!

Video Game Coding: Arcade Games (Gr. 3+)
Working in Scratch’s block based coding environment, kids follow along programming and customizing their very own arcade video game. Once their game is fully functional, more experienced makers have the chance to keep on adding an endless array of features or even design their own.

Robotics Birthday Party

In our Robotics party, kids will design, plan, program, and build an electronic invention while using a robotic microcontroller and learning how to code. They can create their own robotic invention and make it light up.

Robotics: Virtual Robotic Pets (Gr. 3+)
Using the Microbit microcontroller, kids learn the basics of controlling electricity while making robots into their own interactive pets. For more experienced makers the functionality they can add to what their pet can do grows increasingly complex.

Robotics: Virtual Light Show (Gr. 5+)
The Arduino is a prototyping microcontroller popular with both hobbyists and professionals. Kids learn to use a breadboard to wire up circuitry the TinkerCAD Arduino can connect to, and then to program their robot to interact with their lights and switches creating their very own customized light show.

Robotics Camps for Kids
Minecraft Camps for Kids

Minecraft Birthday Party

Minecraft birthday parties at Makerkids have something for everyone. Hop into a block-based virtual world with your friends and work together to build amazing creations.

Minecraft Multiplayer: Zoo Keepers (Gr. 3+)
Kids work together to design a zoo, build the appropriate environments, populate it with creatures, and outfit it with some redstone automation.

Minecraft Multiplayer: Amusement Park (Gr. 5+)
Using World Edit plugin commands and redstone circuitry, kids design, build, and get to enjoy all the activities you would find at a themepark.
