Tacoma Glass Blowing Studio

Your group can experience glassblowing! Each person will create a piece of art glass. One on one time with a skilled glassblower helps create a unique hand blown glass piece. Nine shapes and lots of color to chose from. Groups really love this activity because they get to experience glassblowing and have a piece of glass they created to remember the day.
Giraffe and Staff Puppet Company
4824 Fowler Avenue
Everett, WA 98203
The puppet stage and show that comes to your venue. You choose the puppet show the party guests will see. They will get to meet George, the puppet whose neck stretches 8 feet! And Mizzy Mouse can blow up balloons! After all the children watch the show and meet the giraffe, they get to try their hand at being creative. Giraffe and Staff provide a craft project for the kids to make finger puppets of the characters they see in the show. For kids up to about age 10. Call for details.
Ride the Ducks of Seattle
516 Broad Street
Seattle, WA 98109
No matter how large or small your party, count on 90 minutes of big fun. Each Duck is piloted by a Captain (all Coast-Guard certified with lots of experience on the water) with a unique name matched only by their unconventional personality. Your party girl or boy will love taking to the high seas with Captain Hope Itfloats and her fabulous purple feather boa, rocking the boat with Captain Helen Wheels and her Barbie drumsticks, or singing a sea shanty with Captain Beau Dayshush – who has a hat and a theme song for every Seattle landmark. Bring you own snacks, and let the kids play Happy Birthday on their Wacky Quackers (duck billed harmonicas) they receive on board.
