Parties

Our interactive, engaging, educational and fun parties have now gone virtual! Give your child the opportunity to share the experience of making with their closest friends! Our virtual parties are 2 hour long sessions designed for up to 5-10 kids ages 6-13!

Pick between one of the three topics below! We have birthday themes available for each topic, but would be happy to deviate from them to cater to your child’s interests! We’ve run Medieval-themed, Frozen-themed parties and even Pokemon-themed virtual coding, robotics or Minecraft parties in the past. Send a request to info@makerkids.com to inquire more!


In a coding party, participants will explore different possibilities and scenarios and discover a whole new world or imagination and creativity by creating their own video games! Kids can create their own games, share them and play with their friends’ too!

Working in Scratch’s block based coding environment, kids follow along programming and customizing their very own arcade video game. Once their game is fully functional, more experienced makers have the chance to keep on adding an endless array of features or even design their own.


Minecraft parties at Makerkids have something for everyone. Hop into a block-based virtual world with your friends and work together to build amazing creations.

Zoo Keepers: Kids work together to design a zoo, build the appropriate environments, populate it with creatures, and outfit it with some redstone automation.

Amusement Park (Gr. 5+): Using World Edit plugin commands and redstone circuitry, kids design, build, and get to enjoy all the activities you would find at a themepark.


In our Robotics party, kids will design, plan, program, and build an electronic invention while using a robotic microcontroller and learning how to code. They can create their own robotic invention and make it light up.

Virtual Robotic Pets: Using the Microbit microcontroller, kids learn the basics of controlling electricity while making robots into their own interactive pets. For more experienced makers the functionality they can add to what their pet can do grows increasingly complex.

Virtual Light Show (Gr. 5+): The Arduino is a prototyping microcontroller popular with both hobbyists and professionals. Kids learn to use a breadboard to wire up circuitry the TinkerCAD Arduino can connect to, and then to program their robot to interact with their lights and switches creating their very own customized light show.
