Pics of Wonderwild Indoor Party Playground

You asked for it, here it is. Some pics of our space located at 707 N Shepherd Dr, #500, Houston TX 77007. We have birthday parties on the weekends and drop-in open play on the weekdays from 9am-7pm. We are usually open for holidays so come check us out and get ready to PLAY!!!

Art is an important part of everyone's lives, especially our kids at Wonderwild. We embrace art and artful living. We have professional artists showing in our reception--including Kevin Peterson, Tim Spencer, and Clarence Chun (in the hallway).

We value creativity and uncluttered play spaces. Here's a look at our toddler area and the ball pool filled with transparent "bubbles." The foam sculptures are all handmade in Europe and developed by child development experts and product designers--all to encourage creative free play.

Here's two of our staff members, Tasha and Insaff, working out on the jumping pillow! It's great exercise and keeps our employees in shape!

No play space is complete without a big 15 foot slide!

Here's the 3 story playscape for kids to climb, run and slide down on.
Inside the playscape, is the train track. The trains help kids to develop upper body strength--plus, it's a lot of fun!!

A look at our party room--a blank canvas for you to decorate with balloons, tablecloths and centerpieces if you so desire. During the weekdays, it's open for families to bring in their own food and drink and eat after a hard work out of playing.

My Art Gallery

We are so proud of our art students at Wonderwild!! From ages 2 to 8, our kids have done an amazing job following the works of famous artists but still keeping their own artwork unique and true to themselves! Above is work inspired by Piet Mondrian--we focused on bold colors and straight lines by doing some "tape painting." At the very end of our 10 week session, we will be holding a GALLERY SHOW for all the students to show off their amazing work! Sign up today for the next round of art classes starting March 22nd. Check out http://www.gowonderwild.com and go to classes and click on the Spring schedule (at the very bottom of the page).

Each student took their silhouette and then did some reverse watercolor painting--inspired by artist Mary Cassatt. Each masterpiece is worthy of being framed!

These kooky creatures had us exploring the art of sculpture and clay. We explored character and the development of a character--inspired by artist Takashi Murakami.
