Wildlife Wonders Party
Wildlife Wonders parties are designed for preschoolers with plenty of opportunities for discovery and imaginative play.
Each party meets at the Monsanto Insectarium where guests will make their own Buggy Birthday antennae and participate in a scavenger hunt for some Insectarium residents. The group will then assemble and be escorted on the 10 minute walk to our behind-the-scenes private party area for more exploration and fun. We begin with 15 minutes of free choice play at a variety of themed activity areas. Next, the group will be engaged in a short interactive story or song, and will then have the chance to see, touch and learn about some of the live animals in our classroom. After a break to wash hands, it is time for cupcakes and candles. If gifts are part of your party, there will be an opportunity to open them, or the remainder of the party can be spend revisiting the activity areas.
