What are Kids at Work Signature Art/Sensory Stations?

At Kids at Work, we believe that young children appreciate choices and freedom within activities, especially when it comes to art play. During Kids at Work art, we do not require all children to sit and complete a craft all at the same time. Rather, children are able to make choices when they are ready and in their own time. For many children at parties, it is their first experience within our space, and they are more at ease with this choice-based atmosphere, since it is closer to what they may be experiencing within their own school environment. You can let us know what art activities your child may specifically enjoy, from messy and sensory based to more crafty and project oriented. Got a theme going? Let us know because we can probably work it into our stations! Here are some options:

  • Our large sandbox is always a hit – we can add dinosaurs, dino bones, construction vehicles, you name it!
  • Other sensory bins with different textures – wet, goopy, soft, crumbly!
  • Playdough making activity (as a part of choices)
  • 4 child-height easels with simple painting for large scale independent work.
  • Huge messy muraling on floor or tables using different manipulatives – cars, sponges, rollers, dinos, etc.
  • Decorating, collaging, or painting an item such as treasure box, car, airplane, frame, almost anything! (extra charge – $50 plus cost of item which is usually around $20 per 12 children, depending on the item)  Check out some options here.
  • Cleaner activities, if you wish, such as watercolors, stamping, stickers, markers, crayons.

Please note that due to quantity of children we are only able to send children home with a decorated item (add-on) only, OR if a parent specifically requests. Most children will not take home artwork from our parties. It’s the process, not the product.

Off-Site Musical Entertainment

Kids at Work musicians (singer/guitarists) are trained in how to create authentic musical experience with young children. Our musicians are down on the floor with kids, making eye contact, learning names and ages, and interacting with your guests via storysongs, contrasting activities, instruments, and of course movement. Our musicians work acoustic only, and parent participation (especially for children under 3) usually makes for the most fun experience.

Kids at Work musicians are hired with an extremely high level of musicianship, and can play and sing almost anything! Got a favorite band, singer, or song? Let us know and we can include your ideas. Want to check out our musicians before booking? Email us (link to email) and we’ll let you know which drop-in to attend to check one of them out at our location on W27th St!

One Senior Musician (singer-guitarist) – $275

One Junior Musician (singer-guitarist) – $250

Two Musicians (both singer-guitarists) – $400 (recommended for more than 15 kids, OR for children aged 4 and older)

Age-appropriate instruments within walking distance in our studio (at discretion of musician) – $40

Age-appropriate instruments anywhere else in Manhattan – $90

Age-appropriate instruments outside of Manhattan – $125
