Let Tinker help celebrate your child's next birthday! The birthday child and their guests will have a great time being creative and making a unique art project while parents can sit back and enjoy watching their young artists at work.
Designed for children ages 3-13 (parties for 3 & 4-year-olds have a maximum of 12 children // parties for 5-year-olds and up have a maximum of 16 children)
If a child is under the age of four, we ask that they are accompanied by one adult who is willing to assist their child if needed.
Birthday Parties are held on Saturdays from 1:00-2:30pm and 3:00-4:30pm and select Fridays from 4:00 - 5:30pm.
Choose a main art project from our Birthday Menu below; we will help facilitate the entire party, presents, cake and all.
The birthday child arrives 5 minutes early to make a special birthday crown & greet guests. The art making fun begins when the final guest arrives.
As the art pieces dry, the party continues with cake and presents. When the party is finished, we will take care of the clean-up!
