Bring your holiday spirit and coziest pajamas to Maryland Science Center’s Toymaker PJ Party.
Make a toy for yourself or as a gift for a friend as you engineer bouncy balls, design paper walkers and create shrinking ornaments. End the night by gazing up at the winter sky in a live planetarium show. PJ parties are all the fun of a sleepover without the overnight stay!
Who Can Attend?
The event is designed for children ages 8 and under, but older siblings can join in on the fun as well. All children must have a paid adult in their party.
