The two-hour birthday party includes private access to the Enrichment Center and the indoor/outdoor play area. Kids will work on crafts and sit for story time with singalong, then get hands-on during instrument and parachute play sessions. All decor is provided—in one of eight themes, such as Under the Sea or Flower Fun—as well as a personalized party favor book for each child. Staff will help set up and clean up.
Books and Cookies
It may be called Books and Cookies, but that's only the beginning of what this Santa Monica spot has to offer. The center is owned by Chudney Ross, daughter of legendary singer Diana Ross. And like any mother, Diana has plenty of praise for her daughter's efforts. “Books and Cookies is a bookstore, but it’s more,” Diana told Us Weekly. “Chudney has created a nurturing environment and a loving environment where learning takes place.” That environment is divided into three spaces—read on to learn more about each one.
Bookstore and Interactive Reading Room
There's no shortage of books in this bright, sunlit space. The shelves are filled with classic and contemporary titles designed for everyone from toddlers to tweens, many of which are read aloud during story-time sessions held daily.
Enrichment Center and Learn & Play Area
The enrichment center not only hosts story times daily, but fitness, music, and art classes. When they aren't decorating crafts, children can explore an 800-square-foot indoor and outdoor Learn & Play area by splashing in the water table, climbing a play structure, or playing dress-up.
Kids are invited to create works of art, play with parachutes, and listen to stories in Books and Cookies' event space, too. The spot organizes play groups, baby showers, charity events, and kids' birthday parties there. The best part? They even clean up after their guests.
