Activity Stations

Activity Stations – Interactive, Hands on

Activity stations are a fun way for your guests to experience a variety of activities in a fun, interactive way.  Company picnics, camps, school field days, parish picnics, scouting events, and festivals all are great venues for activity stations.

We set up a number of different stations.  Guests wander from station to station.  Sometimes this is done freeform.  Other times, there is a schedule where groups rotate from 1 activity to the other.  We can staff all of the stations.  Or with a number of the stations we can set them up and train your staff to run them.  Here is a sampling of activity stations we can provide:

 

Magic Workshop

Activity stations: learn magic
Learn Magic

Kids learn magic tricks they can perform for their family and friends!  They receive magical props, which make great take-home souvenirs.

 

Circus Play Area

Activity Stations: Circus
Circus School: Teaching kids to spin plates.

We provide several different props used in circus shows.  The kids try their hand at several different circus acts–feather balancing, ring juggling, plate spinning, flower stick manipulation, ribbon twirling, …  We teach different tricks they can do with each circus prop.  Kids love this hands-on, highly interactive activity.

 

Balloon Twisting

Balloon Animal Activity Station
Balloon Art Workshop

We teach the kids to twist balloon animals, which they take home as souvenirs.  Kids love learning to do balloon art.  Their balloon creations make great take-home items, of which they are very proud.
