Bug Lady Birthday Parties

Come and celebrate your child’s special day with the Bug Lady and her animal friends! The Bug Lady’s parties are so much fun for your guests…and they just might learn a thing or two!

“Bugs, Goo, & Animals Too!”

Birthday Parties

Upon arriving your guests will get to explore our critters from tarantulas to birds.  Several critters children will be able to handle.

After exploring your guests will be entertained with a 45-minute to an hour presentation (depending on the age group of the children in attendance) with 20+ animals and insects.

We then will do cake and drinks.  You can either bring your own or we have packages where we provide everything!

After treats your child will get to open up gifts.

Your party guests get to do a hands-on activity of making their own GOO! Everyone will get to take this crazy substance home. Forget the goody bags…GOO is way more fun!

To end the party with a buggy-bang your child will get to paint with Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches on an 8×10 canvas bound picture. This one of a kind art is ready to hang and sure to be the envy of all your guests!

Then you leave the clean-up to us!

PLEASE NOTE: All parties at The Bug Lady’s Science Academy include all tableware (forks, napkins, cups, plates, serving tools, lighter, and candles.) You may bring snacks, candy, vegetable trays, and fruit trays to your party. We’re sorry, but no pizza can be brought in.  If wanting pizza we will be happy make arrangements for you.  Please call for info on groups 50 or larger (up to 100 max.)


How to book a party….

Feel free to email us at bugs@bugladykansas.com to inquiry about dates.  Your email will be returned that day with what time slots and dates are available.  You may call if you prefer that method, but please be advised that with our schedule of going to school, evening classes, and weekend parties it may be several days before your call is returned.

Once dates are decided then all we need is the birthday child’s name/age, contact phone number, and what party package you want.  We will then email out a birthday confirmation with additional info needed for your invites.  There is a non-refundable deposit of $50 required to hold your spot (effective 8/29/16).  If needing to reschedule your party that deposit will hold the new date.  If you need to cancel your party we ask that you do it as soon as possible so we can try to rebook your slot.  Please note that if a cake has been ordered for your party you will be responsible for the baked goods.  Your deposit will not cover that cost.  We order cakes 72 hours prior to the party.
