Host A Party (virtually at home!)

The Maker Bean Cafe is a fun & educational spot for your next party or event! We have 2 floors to host you, and can lead your group through fun & educational maker activities that’ll have you 3D printing, laser cutting & coding your way to your next project, while enjoying our extensive food & beverage selection.

Birthday Parties – at Maker Bean or virtual at-home

We’re excited to offer a wide variety of maker-themed activities for your next birthday party! We also have a delicious selection of baked goods, snacks & drinks to make your party a great one to remember.

For online options, we can facilitate a full tech-themed activity via video chat! You’d pick up all supplies, or arrange delivery, and our facilitators are experienced in leading children through each step of the fun! Cupcakes & birthday songs are a great end to virtual at-home parties too!

For kids birthday parties, we have a number of fun themes to get your group making, laughing & learning together:

Classic Party Activities

Build an Artbot

Learning about motors, batteries & wiring, kids will each build their own motorized robot that creates art on its own!

Minecraft + 2D Creation (best virtual online option!)

Each child receives their own laptop, and the group enters a private world of Minecraft to complete activities & build together, facilitated by one of our Minecraft experts; each child also receives a customized laser cut Minecraft piece too!

For virtual online option, you can pick up as many laptops as you need and drop them off to kids, or we can arrange delivery for you. Refundable deposit of $50/laptop required, refundable upon return of laptops.

Marshmallow Catapult

Kids build a catapult from laser cut parts and elastics, and use them in a distance competition with fuzzy balls and marshmallows

Premium Party Activity
