Castle Builder Birthday Parties ***AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME***

Dates: May 12 – September 3, 2018

Calling all Castle Builders! The Children’s Museum kingdom is growing and we need your help to build a BIGGER and better castle! We supply the blueprints and bricks, and you bring the building crew. After the castle is built, you get to create a majestic crown or a knight’s shield and take a royal photograph with our Instax camera.

Choose from one of the following activity themes:

  • Royal Builders
    Recommended for children ages 0-3.
    We dub thee royal builders! The birthday host and crew will use a blueprint and colourful bricks to build a castle almost as tall as them! The builders will then transition to royalty and design their own crown with the help of a LEGO drawing arm.
  • The King & Queen’s Court
    Recommended for children ages 3-6.
    The birthday host and crew will use their favourite blueprint and colourful bricks to build a castle as tall as the birthday child! A builder’s job is never complete – once the castle is built, the partygoers will decorate a royal crown or a knight’s shield to protect their newly built castle.
  • Dungeons & Dragons
    Recommended for children ages 6-9.
    A façade? A turret? A dungeon? So many options! The birthday host will help the building crew design their own castle, choosing and combining blueprints of fantastic castle elements. After the castle is built the party goers can decide to protect their castle with a decorated shield or become royalty with their decorated crown.
