Birthday Parties

The Potter League is a delightful venue for your child's next birthday party. Each party is tailored to meet the individual interests of the birthday child. Activities include a craft, educational program, animal-themed game, and hands-on time with a pet or two!

Birthday Party activity


Parties are available for children ages 5-10 years old. The party is designed for a maximum of 16 participants. This number includes the birthday child and any other child who wishes to join in activities. At least two adults are required to assist with supervision.


You provide the food and decorations; we provide the fun! Each 1 ½ hour birthday party is tailored to the age and interests of the birthday child. A 1 hour program is provided by the Potter League Educator, and may include a craft, picture book, interactive activities, and meeting a furry friend or two. After the program, the last half hour is for celebration with food and presents


Birthday parties are generally held on Saturdays and Sundays at 11:00 am or 2:00 pm. Party scheduling is subject to availability. Please contact Eleanor Hanson, Humane Educator at 401-846-0592 ext.120 or to check available times and additional scheduling options.

Parties are 1½ hours long, which includes one hour of programming supplied by the Potter League and a ½ hour for food and gifts. Please also keep in mind that the host family may show up a ½ hour before the party to set up and decorate the room, and they should plan to stay about a ½ hour after the party to help clean up.


Birthday parties are held at the Potter League, 87 Oliphant Lane, Middletown, RI 02842 in the Morris Education Center.
