Happy Holidays! This year we celebrated the season with a Christmas Grinch Party. It was full of Christmas Hijinks! We started off with building Graham Cracker house, always a favorite holiday tradition with the kids favorite sweets.

After, we gathered onto the floor for storytime. Interactive storytime is one of our favorites. The staff loves acting out the stories, they are always funny and entertaining. This story in particular included taping hearts to the grinch’s chest, tying him up with ribbon and a white christmas balloon drop.

We also played several games which included decorating the grinch like a Christmas tree and a stealing ornaments off the tree game. You can see more of this game in our video.

We celebrated Dia De Los Muertos the best way we knew how by doing crafts, dancing and singing songs inspired by the movie COCO.

First, it was so much fun decorating for this event because of all the festive colors.

Jack played several games with the kids including our most beloved game of Freeze Dance. We made it more Halloween Party worthy by asking the kids to dance like zombies or monsters.

Superhero Donut Party

We celebrated Labor Day at Imagine Play with an epic superhero donut party with a visit from Batman. We welcomed our superheroes into a colorful party room, where they enjoyed donuts of every variety and other breakfast items.

We love these stand with superhero graphics. They were the perfect vessel to hold our fluffy treats.

We decided to keep the colors in the classic yellow, blue and red superhero scheme. The vibrant colors made this party room festive.

Each child place setting included a crime fighting plate and cup. We alternated between graphic plates and Batman.

Some of our favorite details are the superhero backdrops. We had a total of three balloon arches for this party. We love how the arches bring life to any room.

After breakfast, Batman taught the kids about how to spot a bad guy and what it takes to be a superhero. Our favorite moment during the Batman party today was when Batman was like “do you know how to spot a bad guy?” Pause. “They are always robbing banks.” 😂Batman is a funny guy!

We also did some superhero training. The kids exercised to learn to be fast and strong and practiced some superhero moves.

Snow princess comes to visit

We  love a visit from the snow princess. Since we have opened she has come visit us 4 times and she is still the most requested princess. We love all the fun activities we do at our special events themed around her and her friends like the building a love-able snowman.

Snow Princess likes to read the kids a story about her adventures in her kingdom.

What would a snow princess be without snow? The kids love playing with the snow that she magically conjures.

We usually end with some facepainting so kids get one and one time with the princess.
