Your Questions answered:
What do Birthday Parties look like at MiniMakers?
Our team of Creative STEM Instructors and General Manager design the 3 hour event which includes science demonstrations, a project that involves assembling a STEM Kit, an activity/game and fresh popcorn from our Popcorn Machine made our -in house Popcorn Station Master! These would be developed in line with the theme of the party decided by yourself. We aim to incorporate exploration and discovery (through the science demonstrations), art and design (coloring, decorating and imagining), build and assembly, tools and safety, and a game/activity at the end.
The concept incorporates creativity, science and building skills and opportunities. The party begins with some awesome science demonstrations to excite and delight. Then they move upstairs to the classroom where they will build a STEM Kit, and then learn how to use and try out child safe wood working tools – drill, jigsaw, lathe, sander – with required safety equipment that is mandatory. For us at MiniMakers, safety comes first! We choose science demonstrations that mesmerize them such as demonstrations on how dry ice and water mix and magical fumes are created, how Cheetos turn kids into dragons when eaten after they are mixed with liquid nitrogen, what makes our stand on end when we touch a static ball and even the opportunity to touch cold (and safe, low voltage) lightning. The kids also get to use child safe woodworking tools to make imaginative creations that they can. When the kiddos get hungry we bring them downstairs to the workshop where we have tables and stools set up for them to enjoy the delicious spread of pizzas or whatever else takes your fancy. We do not serve food but we have a fridge and freezer you can use if needed. We do offer popcorn made fresh on site with our in-house popcorn machine trolley.
What is the price and capacity?
The price is a flat rate of $450 + tax and we can accommodate up to 20 people safely and comfortably. If you plan to have children under the age of 3 they would need to be accompanied by a parent and if you have over 15 children we recommend having no more than 4-5 adults at any time in the shop.
What’s included in the price?
The reservation of our space for 3 hours + all the supplies + instructors and project/activity planning + popcorn!
We have pre-set themes available such as Superheroes, Disney, Minecraft and more, as well as personalized themes (some extra charge may apply – further discuss this with us!).
Kids take home what they make here. We also have options for goodie bags ranging from $5 to $15 so get in touch and we’ll find something that works for your theme and budget.
What days and times do you have available for private parties?
