Birthday themes for kids turning 4
Classic Birthday Themes
($30 per Child)
Theme: Colourful Volcanos
Bubble, fizz and erupt! These are the sounds you’ll hear when your birthday guests make their own colourful volcanoes.
Following a brief introduction to volcanoes, each child will build their own volcano diorama by making their own play-doh (wheat based) and adding an array of craft materials such as coloured crystal gem stones, flowers, food dye, sand, and sparkles. During this step-by-step process, we learn what happens when acids and bases mix as we countdown to each child's volcanic eruption. All guests will get to take home their volcano dioramas for endless amounts of fun.
Theme: Crystal Treasures
This party is a great option for budding Geologists!
Together, we’ll take a look under the microscope to admire the hidden wonders of the world of crystals and gemstones and talk about some of the science that makes crystals so mesmerizing. After, we’ll get messy! Each child will a design and decorate a unique treasure box that will hold the two custom-coloured sparkly crystals that they will create. This crystal treasure box is going to be something great to show off to friends and family and a great addition to their bookcase collections!
Theme: Palaeontologist Party
Does your kiddo like Dinosaurs? Is it their greatest wish to find a fossil or dino bone? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you must have a budding paleontologist on your hands!
During this birthday activity, we'll briefly discuss the fossils and their importance to archeological research. Each child will then get to make their own body fossil using a dinosaur figurine and plaster. Then, it’s off to dig for fossils in our lab’s fossil sandpit. Once we have discovered some fossils, we use them to create trace fossils in large petri dishes. By the end of this expedition, your birthday guests will leave with two different types of fantastic fossils, which are the perfect addition to any bookcase museum!
Theme: Planet Exploration
Calling all space adventurers!
In this birthday party theme, each child will get the chance to design their very own planet. Using planet-shaped globes as their template, we provide the kids with a variety of space-themed materials, including colourful sand, sparkles, sponges and kid-friendly glow-in-the-dark paint to get their hands engaged and their brains thinking creatively towards their own unique interpretation of an undiscovered planet. At the end of the party, each guest will be able to take home their own piece of the galaxy they imagined!
Theme: Rainbows and Raindrops
Hear the tale of the rainstick and learn all about the water cycle in this one-of-a-kind birthday!
During this party, each child will create their own unique rainstick. This activity involves, filling their sticks with various food materials such as rice and beans and then decorating the outside with craft materials such as stickers, tape and crayons. In addition, all of the kids will get the chance to reveal a secret picture that will only appear using none other than...rain! By the end of the party, each child will take home their very own personalized rainsticks and their watercolour pictures.
