Yaymaker All Ages events are happening all over the US and Canada!
We’re all about encouraging creativity, and that includes for kids and grown-ups alike. Our All Ages events are the perfect family-friendly day or nite out, and they’re a great way to share some real quality time together. But, since these events are kid-friendly, we get that you have may some questions. We want you to feel 100 percent confident that Yaymaker events are a great activity for you and your littles, so read on—we think you’ll like what you see.
Q: Who can attend All Ages events?
A: We’re glad you asked! There are three types of All Ages Yaymaker events:
- Kids (ages 6 – 12) crafted for young ones with their grown up. For every three Kids in attendance, at least one parent or guardian must also attend, and we bet you’ll have fun, too!
- Teens (ages 13 – 17) welcome with an adult.
- Young Adults who can come on over to our 18 – 20 events whenever they want without an adult (you’re totally old enough to be responsible), but cannot drink alcohol.
- Adults, of course, can take some time away at any of our 20+ (US) and 19+ (CAN) events.
We split the groups this way because young kids and teens have different skill levels and interests, and we want to make sure everyone has the best time possible for their skill set.
Q: How do I find All Ages events on my local event calendar?
A: You can easily find All Ages events on your local event calendar by filtering your guests by selecting the appropriate ages. Each event in our calendar is clearly titled All Ages, so they’re hard to miss. Just a note that some of our experiences might not be suitable for younger ages.
Q: Okay, but my kid is still so young! How will they keep up?! Will you make this easy?
A: Absolutely. We keep the steps short, sweet, and completely accessible. Terrariums are made step-by-step with hands-on help. Paintings are kid-friendly and fun for adults to make, too! Our other event types are also taught on a kid-friendly level so everyone can keep up! Check out a few favorites:
Q: What time are these events and how long do they run?
A: Yaymaker’s All Ages events happen in the afternoons during vacations, weekends and evenings after school. Your local hosts do keep bedtime in mind when planning and event start times are super kid-friendly. Yaymaker All Ages events also usually run just a bit shorter than our standard events, so you can expect to be having some creative fun for about an hour and a half.
Q: At Paint Nite events, will the paints stain clothes? My kid is very messy.
A: Kids aren’t concerned about staying clean, but you are—we get it! Our acrylic paints are washable, but we recommend kids wear old clothes to lighten your laundry load.
Q: What should I bring to this event?
A: Just yourself and your kids! We supply absolutely everything, from canvas to apron and planter to succulents and more.
Q: So I can drop my kids off and head to the bar, right? I can totally watch them from there.
A: While we’re all about a little R&R, that’s not how we do things here at Yaymaker. All Ages events are an opportunity for kids and grown-ups to bond as they create together. Every three kids must have at least one grown-up with them, and all guests must have purchased a ticket and plan to paint or plant. Sorry, no exceptions.
Q: I see lots of photos from Yaymaker events on social media. Will you be posting pictures of my kids?
A: Not if you don’t want us to. We do take photos at events, and they sometimes go on our social media, but we always will ask your permission before posting online. We definitely get that some parents don’t want their kids’ faces online (no matter how cute they are!), so just let your host or photographer know and we’ll steer clear.
Q: I’m so excited to create with my kid! Can I still enjoy an alcoholic beverage or two while I’m there?
A: Heck ya, no judgements here! Youo do you. We always encourage guests to purchase food and drink from the event venue. Just keep in mind that we don’t require our All Ages venue partners to have alcohol available, so if you want to drink make sure you’re going to a venue with a bar.
We made it through the Q&A, but you may still be wondering if Yaymaker’s All Ages events are a fit for you. Don’t just take our word that you’ll have a blast – here are some thoughts from recent guests…
What was the best thing about your event?
That you’re encouraging kids to be kind to themselves
Watching the kids and the reaction to how is it actually is to create a painting.
The host was super helpful and personally talked to us about plant care.
I really enjoyed the artist’s energy. She was very attentive to my daughter and made her feel very comfortable painting.
I loved sharing something I love to do with my kids.
What did your child think about the event?
She had a blast and wants canvases at home so she can paint every day!
He was proud of what he accomplished and showed everyone that came to the house.
Even more love…
Fun from beginning to end. What a great way to teach kids about plants from a young age!
Parents will love it. Kids are engaged and having fun and get to take an awesome picture home when they’re done!
The artist was great—so nice and patient.
