It’s party time! Kids birthday parties are so much fun but coming up with your child’s next birthday party theme and venue can sometimes be tough. Sometimes you need fresh new ideas and maybe you are looking for something different. This Kenosha Kids’ Birthday Party Guide is here to help!


Hot Mess Studios

Create a beautiful mess at Hot Mess Studios! What kid doesn’t like to get messy? Book a private party at their Downtown Kenosha location. Or bring the Hot Mess to you via the Hot Mess Express Bus or in a Pop-Up Tent! Let the kids find their inner artist without judgments or critiques…only paint splatters of creativity. Each kid will be able to take home their own Jackson-Pollock-inspired masterpiece.

Pinot’s Palette

For creativity without the mess, try a Kids Painting Party at Pinot’s Palette! Little Brushes kids painting classes celebrate every child’s creativity and classes are customizable by age and skill level while offering nonstop fun for their celebration. They plan the activities, setup, and cleanup – and the art supplies are already there too!

Alpaca Art

Have fun with Grab’n Go Pottery at Alpaca Art! Kids get to choose their very own piece of pottery to paint, decide on a design, paint their piece to their liking, and then the party host picks up the finished pieces of art a week later. There’s also a Pottery-to-Go option!

Kenosha YMCA

Where is the best place for kids to run, climb, swim, and play? The Kenosha YMCA! Choose from Splash Parties, Play Time Parties, Dance Parties, New Heights Parties, and STEM Parties. Each party includes one hour of activity, one hour in a private party room, and a host to assist you and escort your group, and of course do the clean-up!

Take the kids out to the ballgame! Have a Valeo’s Pizza Birthday Bash at a Kenosha Kingfish game!  There's a pre-game pizza party with all you can drink soda and water.
