Tinkergarten Birthday Party FAQs

Are there themes or choices for the Tinkergarten birthday party?

There sure are! You can select one of the following themes for your child’s party:

  • Plant A Seed: Inspired by Christie Matheson’s Plant the Tiny Seed, children explore the materials seeds need to sprout and grow, then create seedlings of their own to take home and nurture.
  • Wild Rumpus: Inspired by Maurice Sendak’s classic, Where the Wild Things Are, we decorate nature crowns, nature instruments and host a wild rumpus fit for any birthday king or queen of the Wild Things.
  • Mystery Trail Hike: Children will work together to solve a mystery and find the special treat that the Forest Fairies left for us in the woods—forest putty!—then work together to create all sorts of treasures!

How long does each Tinkergarten birthday party last?

Our expert trained leader provides activities and engagement for children and parents for 60 minutes. Parents work with the Tinkergarten Leader to identify at what time you would like the hour of activity to begin.

Does Tinkergarten provide party favors?

The birthday child receives a Tinkergarten t-shirt in his or her size. Friends of the birthday child receive a seed pack to continue the growing, learning, and fun after the celebration!

What happens in the case of rain or inclement weather?

If a parent chooses to reschedule a party due to weather, parent and leader can arrive on a mutually convenient date. Leader and family can also decide if shifting indoors will work for the activity and the group. If no mutually convenient arrangement can be found, Tinkergarten will refund the family, minus processing fees.

Does the host need to provide any materials? Does Tinkergarten provide snacks, food, or a birthday cake?

The Tinkergarten leader provides all of the materials required for the Tinkergarten activity and a related favor for each child. The host provides any food or drinks.

How far in advance should I book my party?

Tinkergarten birthday parties must be registered and paid for a minimum of ten business days in advance, to ensure that we have time to ship materials to your local leader. We recommend booking as far in advance as possible, as leaders' schedules fill up quickly!

Where can I hold a Tinkergarten birthday party?

Tinkergarten activities work well in a wide variety of spaces! Many families have enjoyed hosting in their own backyards. If you choose to use another park or green space, we encourage you to reach out for permission and secure a permit if necessary.

What age groups are appropriate for a Tinkergarten birthday party?

Tinkergarten activities are designed for children ages 0-8 and work well with mixed age groups.

My 6-year-old daughter said it best when we were leaving: 'that was the best party I've ever been to.' As a mom, now I can't wait to host one of our own next year!
