Just for Fun - Events and Parties
We also regularly host Parents’ Night Out Events!
Parent’s Night Out gives parents an opportunity to relax for an evening while their children have fun in an enriching and educational (but still fun!) environment. A parent’s night out will be offered each month at the Treehouse Reading and Arts Center. Children will be engaged in stories, crafts, and games (and have some pizza) while parents enjoy some free time.
$15/child (discounts for siblings)
We can also host your special event!
Birthday parties will be offered on Saturday and Sunday afternoons or by appointment. The birthday child can request any theme or topic and the party will be created around that theme (e.g. robots, fairy tales, Lego building, horse, tea party, space, etc.). There will be a story, a craft, games and activities, and cupcakes during each party. Each party guest will receive a paperback book related to the party theme in a small party bag. Book your child’s next birthday at The Treehouse!
$200/party for 10 children ($10 additional per guest)
As an added birthday perk, we are also willing to organize a ‘wish list’ style gift package. The birthday child can pick out all their favorite books before the party and then guests can come to the party and select books from the child’s personalized display! We’ll package all the gifted books in a fun party basket and deliver to the birthday child right at the party!
Let us host your baby shower here at The Treehouse. We handle all the setup and cleanup. We organize shower games and activities to entertain guests. Cupcakes for all your guests are included in the cost! We even shower the mom-to-be with a basket of books for her and the new baby!
$200 for up to 10 guests/$10 each additional guest
