Bring sensory play to your next party! Whether you’re looking for an activity that is the main attraction of your party, a few passive activities for little ones to explore on their own, or a Kid’s Corner for your grown up party, Our Friends Afar has got you covered. We work with you to make your little one's party one to remember.
We bring all of the sensory gear, including kid’s sized tables and chairs, and work with you to create your vision. We help facilitate activities and provide set up and clean up services, without you having to lift a hand.
Our hope is that you as parents are able to enjoy celebrating your little one (or your grown up friends) without having to worry about all of the little hosting details.
After filling out the form below, you will get a call from Stacey, our founder, to discuss party specifics. We work together to make your little one's party customized to your needs. We figure out if you are wanting sensory play to be the main event of your party (ie: slime making, playdough making, salt jars, etc.), if you are wanting to simply have a few sensory activities at your event (like a mini ball pit, a playdough station, water play, etc.), or if you’re wanting a fun Kid’s Corner for your adult party.
Whatever your needs, we’ll get you taken care of so that you can be present, enjoy the memories, and mingle with your guests. Our goal is for your little one to have a blast while making your life easier.
We are so excited to connect and celebrate your little one! It’s seriously ONE OF STACEY’S FAVORITE things to do!
Hi! I’m Sunshine and I’m 8 years old. I love adventures, especially traveling adventures, which is perfect because our family travels A LOT. It’s so fun meeting new friends around the world and learning about different places and cultures. I hope you’ll join us.
Hi! I’m Boomer and I’m 6 years old. I love adventures too. My favorite part of traveling is trying all of the fun foods, especially the crazy weird ones that my friends at home haven’t heard of. The grosser, the better. See you at our next adventure!

founder of Our Friends Afar
My name is Stacey and I’m the founder of Our Friends Afar. I’ve always seen the world through kid’s eyes. I’m not sure why. I seem to have a great connection with little ones. I have a passion for teaching kiddos through play and sensory play is my absolute favorite method of doing so. I love watching little ones thrive after they’ve been exposed to a new activity. I strive to foster kindness, compassion, empathy, diversity, and inclusion through our offerings. My style is open-ended and non-structured. Playing it safe is too boring and limiting in my opinion! I hope to build a community for families, both kiddos and parents, to meet others and create lasting friendships.
I spent my early years in Dallas. After high school, I went to college in Denver and graduate school in Arizona. I have an MBA in international business. Strange how I ended up in education, I know! After graduate school, I spent about four years living in Asia and traveling the world. It was an absolutely blast, an eye-opener, and definitely an experience that changed my life for the better. Now I am back in Dallas hoping to expand little one’s world views as well!
I am so excited to connect with all of you. Thank you for visiting our magical community.
