Thanks for your interest in workshops at The Blue Bunny Books and Toys. We’ve been happy to have a studio room at our new location and are always looking for new ways to connect with the community. We will always try to offer as much as we can for Blue Bunny fans of all ages. Our workshop room is also available for birthday parties. You can rent the room and run your own party, or contact us to find out about opportunities to schedule a preschool storytime birthday party, or a crafting party for school-aged kids with a Blue Bunny staff member to lead the activities. Parties are limited to 12 participants maximum due to space restrictions. Call 781-493-6568 or email janet@bluebunnybooks.com for more info.
