Play-Focused Parties for Kids

A spectacularly fun and memorable way to celebrate any occasion!

Clashing Swords Party


Our artists will help kids create their own fantastic swords and shields to take home, then host an all-out game of Strategic Capture the Flag. We'll bring an array of props and several ancient magical relics to be hidden and found onsite!

Add larger-than-life armored characters to increase the fun!

Nerf Survival Party


Kids work with skilled artists creating post-apocalyptic taggers to take home, then choose from fifty nerf guns and sci-fi props to play an all out, counselor-lead Battle Royale and games of Team Survival

Giant Maze Add-On works especially well and Huge Character Add-Ons also increase the fun!

Just-a-Maze Party


Just the maze, please? Certainly! We'll build a giant maze for your kids to host their own fun inside. With design input from the birthday crew, we'll set it up before the party begins and return to take it down when the party is over! No extra charge for setting up off-site.

Create extra fun with a Bucket-o-Nerf Add-On!

Party From Afar


Kids are invited to join an online tabletop roleplay game hosted by one our counselors. These are original and highly social RPG adventures adopted for online platforms.

Our artists will drop off a collection of custom made sword tagger kits and instructions with the host for participants to craft in their own time.

Add a giant maze to your party! We'll come early and set up a large refrigerator box maze. A long lost tomb, a pre-apocalypse research laboratory, we'll hide props inside then play games in and around the maze.

A bucket of nerf with enough pistols and darts for every kid! What more can we say?

Add larger-than-life characters to your party! We’ll bring one or more armored monstrosities to challenge your guests when the games begin!

Any Location!

Adventures in Cardboard will come to your favorite park or your own backyard to set up activities for any celebration. We often facilitate birthdays, coming of age ceremonies and end-of-the-school-year parties.

If you'd like a suggestion for arranging an event at a park near you in the seven county metro area, if you mention you are planning an event with AiC these parks will help you make arrangements.

Or... you can come to our Adventure Studio in Minneapolis, create props with us here and then take a three minute stroll to a fantastic wooded bend at Minnehaha Creek for games.

Brilliant Artist-Educators!

Magnetic and entertaining people with consummate artistic skills, our Instructors act as trusty yet happy-go-lucky warlords who are able to keep responsible parameters on play while joining in the nitty gritty of battle when called upon by the adventurers to do so!
