Get crafty at the parties held at Abrakadoodle. Under the Popular Celebration party package, kids can look forward to two hours of games and an interactive art session, from canvas painting to moulding clay. Little ones will have a blast unleashing their creativity and, best of all, they’ll get to bring class vouchers and their masterpiece home – the best party favour there is! The party will end with a cake-cutting ceremony and some time for mingling. For the Theme Party packages, kids will also enjoy games and an art session based on the chosen theme. Parents can bring their own cake and finger food. Both party packages cater for 10 kids and include Abrakadoodle invitation cards, a special gift for the birthday child, basic decorations, setup and clean up. Party facilitators are Abrakadoodle staff who come from art or early childhood backgrounds and teach weekly art classes and camps. They are passionate about sharing their love for art with kids.
