Theme Options:

Ahoy! It’s a Pirate Party
X marks the best birthday party in town during CML’s Ahoy! It’s a Pirate Party! Children get into character with their eye patches while decorating their own swords with gems, glittered pieces and fabulous shiny treasures.  Then, they are off on a treasure hunt throughout the Museum to look for hidden bounties!

Knights and Princesses Party
Step back in time to an age when knights and princesses ruled the land!  Once the knights and princesses have designed crowns with rhinestones and glittered objects, they will embark on a quest throughout the Museum.

Superheroes to the Rescue! Party
CML needs your little heroes and heroines to help save our Museum!  Your child and guests will don satin capes as they decorate their superhero masks to hide their true identity. Once they are ready, the search will begin to find the villains and rescue the Museum!

Paint n’ Play Party
Young artists will don CML smocks and, following in the footsteps of other famous artists, they’ll turn blank canvases into inspired masterpieces that are frame-worthy and ready to take home! Then, they’re off on a scavenger hunt throughout the Museum!

Sensational Scientists Party
Young scientists will grab their lab coats (provided by CML) and embark on a super-slimy journey through the world of STEM, creating their very own slime or learning how to create an electrical circuit to take home! Scientists will then continue their exploration with a scavenger hunt through the Museum!

The Unicorn Party
Join us for a magical journey into the mystical world of the unicorns. Everyone will have a unicorn hat with whimsical rainbow colors which pass on the pure creature’s magical powers. Then, all together, they will make a unicorn banner to be hung in their rooms at home. They will take an adventure through the Museum on a scavenger hunt for all things Unicorn!

Shark Party
Yes! Baby Shark is here! The adventure will start with baby shark hats which set the tone while the music plays. The party will have fun decorating their shark hats, then head off through the Museum searching for under-the-sea creatures. The birthday child will carry our special stuffed baby shark for all to see!
