Birthday Parties

Celebrate with Land’s Sake!

Give your child the gift of hands-on, outdoor fun! Birthday parties at Land's Sake are led by our experienced educators, who guide party-goers through exciting and engaging party activities.  Choose from any four of the following activities to create a party that your child will love and remember. Activity lengths are offered as estimations for planning purposes, but may change based on group energy and interest. All activities will be adjusted according to age and ability of the group. After the activities, families will have time to enjoy the food, cake, presents, and games that they choose to provide. We recommend parties for ages 3 and up. Contact education@landssake.org or call 781-893-1162 to book your party!

Rabbit Encounters

15 Minutes 

Kids get to spend time getting to know our rabbits up close and personal in one of our most popular activities. As the rabbits hop freely in our "bunny circle," party-goers will have the chance to pet these furry friends, and even feed them produce from our garden when available. All our rabbits are chosen for encounters based on their temperament.

Planting Project

Plant seeds to take home and grow! Kids will learn planting skills as they decorate pots, fill them with soil, and plant vegetable or flower seeds. Each party-goer will leave with their own potted plant and knowledge on how to provide it with the care it needs.

Scavenger Hunt

20 Minutes

Explore the farm like a detective searching for clues! Our scavenger hunts are adjusted for each season and give kids the opportunity to look closely at the world around them, discovering that there really is treasure everywhere. Scavenger hunts are crafted to inspire party-goers to be careful nature observers and to get in touch with the different wonders that each season brings. 

Harvesting Project*

15 Minutes

Is there any better party favor than fresh, local produce? Enjoy the bounty of our education garden, picking our delicious seasonal produce. Partygoers will be able to bring home the fruits and vegetables that they pick. Each harvest will come with information about the plant and instructions on proper picking. 

*Harvesting is seasonally dependent. Ask our Education Manager what vegetables and fruits are in season prior to booking a harvesting activity.

Storytime

10 Minutes

Enjoy age-appropriate stories with a farm and nature theme. Our educators provide an interactive and engaging story experience. Take your child's love of reading outdoors! 

Birthday parties are two hours long, with a 45 minute set-up time before the party and a 45 minute clean up time after. After the completion of farm activities, you may gather at our picnic tables to share food and refreshments, and continue your celebration. You are responsible for providing decorations, party supplies, refreshments, child supervision, and clean-up. We suggest a minimum of five chaperones. All trash and personal belongings must be removed at the end of the party. To protect wildlife, we do not allow balloons at the farm.

Birthday parties are offered in spring, summer, and fall. Due to our busy schedule, we have limited availability for birthday party times, but have the potential to host both weekend and weekday parties during daylight hours. We recommend scheduling well in advance to secure your desired time. Contact education@landssake.org or call 781-893-1162 for scheduling details and further information.
