Birthday Party: Build It! (ages 3 and up):
Build It! is our creative play based program fostering imagination and building friendships among party guests. Our party leader facilitates a time to develop imaginative connections using “loose parts” to construct, explore, and even demolish. Play materials may include small office gadgets, tubing, stackable materials, fabric, and much more. Each participant collects a goodie bag of our unique materials to continue their creative play at home!

*Includes up to 12 participants ($5 per additional participant, up to a maximum of 20), a take-home goodie bag of Scrap materials for each participant, and low-waste Reuse Party Ware (plates, cups, forks, spoons) for refreshments that you bring.
Birthday Brick on our Yellow Brick Road:
Now, for an additional $75 (total cost $260 for a 1.5 hour party; $290 for a 2-hour party), you can celebrate your child’s big day and support creative reuse by purchasing a personalized brick on the Yellow Brick Road that encircles our campus. A brick gives your child a permanent reminder of their time spent at The Scrap Exchange, and the funding supports improvements and additions to The Scrap Exchange’s facility and campus.
