Preschooler’s Birthday

Ooey Gooey Playdough

Ooey Gooey Play-Dough Party!

Ages: 3 and older

The Ooey Gooey Play-Dough Party at the New York Hall of Science is a fun-filled party involving science, sensory play and more! Your little ones will create play-dough from scratch and then shape, sculpt, pull, mash and build anything their scientific minds can imagine. A guessing game encourages kids to craft play-dough into specific objects and have others guess the shapes. The two-hour party features favors, music, cake, activities and tons of fun with play-dough!
