Birthday Parties in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland


Sapce Station Birthday Pinata

This Space Star piñata can be quite an easy craft to build. They are great for birthday parties for kids. You have to use a beach ball, lots of strips of old newspaper and paper mache glue gun and mix solution. The hard part comes when you have to paint all the little lines that you see on the surface details. This is done after the mache big ball is finished and primed with general gray spray paint.


So you have started with a medium beach ball and did 5-7 layers of paper over top of it, letting each layer dry in between each other .

I moved positions each time where I started the layer as well, Because the same spot can pile it up, thus budging out because just randomly rotate it and start another layer. No really a big deal you just want it to look somewhat round.

If you are doing it over a week or so then you can store the flour and water mixture in the fridge.

Once it’s all mache and dry you start with these steps

The indented part that was their secret weapon . (You’ll notice it goes around the spigot that was for inflating the beach ball: You can just draw this part with a marker

Drill a hole in the top part of the sphere, keeping in mind where the indented part should be. Once it’s filled, use a couple more layers of paper mache to seal up the hole! Make sure there is a rope attached to the beach ball spigot inside that you can use to hang the piñata, If its being used for a kids birthday.

A couple coats of general primer spray paint happens to be just the right color grey…

Then I took a brush and black paint to start adding the detail marks that are around the whole thing.

Themed Birthday Ideas and Loot Bags


If you have ever thrown a child’s birthday party, you know the expenses of all the components brought together to throw the “perfect” event. After you’ve gotten your decorations, your food, your entertainment, and all your invites, you’ve accumulated a good lump sum of cash! You now realize after inviting your child’s entire class, family members and neighbour’s that you STILL have loot bags! Loot bags always seem to add up to be quite expensive. Parents have now found various ways to bypass and come up with their own creative ideas so that children are no longer getting the ordinary loot bag, dollar store regulars. Following are new ideas for party favors for a variety of different types of themed events!

Vancouver themed birthday ideas

Potion Party Ideas and Decorations.

Potter Potion parties can be extremely fun as kids get to touch and feel all the ingredients. It can really make an unreal themed birthday!

Please view my company here Kids Birthday Parties Vancouver if looking for the Professors to come to your home and put on a Potions Party !!!!


Some ideas for setting up or creating your own decorations:

The party can include a few different types of displays/food tables to correlate with some of our favorite fun parts of the Potter world. A potions display isn’t complete without a bubbling cauldron, potions, spell book, slimy creatures, spiders, and a skull. Spiders following a line up the wall always make a nice touch. You can purchase a bunch of small, wacky shaped little bottles and filled each with different colored water or items that matched the descriptions in the movie and books. You can make small tags that and displayed on each bottle. It’s always fun finding finding their favorite potions from the books. Making a invisibility potion is always a hit make sure it’s drinkable too. Etsy has fabulous items and tons of variety and also back drops as well.   Call your local store first to see what they have in stock as well


Potions class is best to keep for the end of the party and prepped the kids for cake and treats and or food. Creating drinks with many different colored sodas available, from Sprite to Orange to Sun Drop. Light-colored sodas work the best. Drop in a tablet or more of Instant Flavor Drink Tablets and watch the color change before their eyes. The flavor changes… be prepared! These drink tablets don’t taste very good in plain old water, but mix them into soda and POOF, PRESTO! you have your own potion creation . Now, dare all your friends to try it. Super Fun.

Kids always have a blast making up their own potions and trying them out!

Potter Potions Party

Potter Parties Potions Class – 90 minute birthday party or event.

Young Wizards Academy now has two Potter Party packages. The first package is Chamber of Treasure wand adventure where kids attend wand training. The second is a very fun Potions Party where they receive wand training and attend potions class. Potion Parties are great for kids ages 6-10 girls and boys. Potter Parties available in the Greater Vancouver and lower mainland areas.

Watch the kids go through wand training and spell casting class then the school bell rings and they are off to the laboratory for their very first Potions Class. That’s right we come and transform your dining room, kitchen or activity room into a potions laboratory. The potions professor brings all the necessary supplies for each child to have their very own potions class experience. The Professor will lay out small cauldrons, beakers, napkins and several potion dropper bottles for each and every group. Each child gets their own cauldron and beakers to create their very own potion. Kids also receive several dry ingredients as well like Pixie Dust and Powdered Pigmy Puffs. All wet and dry ingredient are food grade safe for kids to use.


Watch the kids carefully sprinkle in the spider eggs into their cauldron or feel the flubber worm slime between their fingers. Be careful creating the invisibility potion as for one wrong ingredient might make you disappear! Use your magic wands skills to have the potion come to life. See how your beaker bubbles over when you discover that the potion knows you have a secret.

Potter potions parties have two actors that entertain the kids a full 90 minutes. There is a limit of 16 kids in this party package as it allows the actors to give the necessary attention to each child to make it a successful party. There needs to be a sink in the room for the potion party participants to be able to use.

All the kids get to keep their custom made wand to keep and a dragon gem they discover on a adventure deep in the dungeon of the castle.

Please visit my site at for more pictures, videos and party Information. Also discover 7 more actioned themed birthday party packages and come see what everyone is raving about at Young Wizards Academy.
