Birthday Parties at The Maker Bean Cafe!
We’re excited to offer a wide variety of maker-themed activities to bring your friends & family together for your next birthday party!
Parties last 2 hours, including time for the Maker activity (about 1.5 hours) and birthday song & food or cake (about 0.5 hours). You'll have exclusive use of our separate, colourful & bright maker space for your party, and you're welcome to bring your own food, drinks & decorations. Parents are welcome to stay, or drop kids off & come pick them up later.
For kids birthday parties, we have a number of fun themes to get your group making, laughing & learning together.
Tech-themed Party Activities
Build an ArtBot!
Learning about motors, batteries & wiring, kids will each build their own motorized robot that creates art on its own!
Learn Laser Cutting: Make & laser cut your own design!
We'll walk you through all the steps of designing your own laser cut piece in Adobe Illustrator, one laptop per child, and then amaze you as the laser cutter cuts & engraves your custom piece before your eyes! Recommended for kids 8+ years old.
Minecraft Adventures on a private server!
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!
