  1. These are such creative ideas and really good places for kids to unleash their vivid imagination and dive into it! Thanks so much for these. Last year for my little cousin’s birthday party we rented from this wonderful party rental business in Minneapolis.

    1. That’s amazing to hear, Jagrit! You are a party-planning Rock Star! Seriously. I love when kids get to spark their creativity and have epic adventures, even if it’s just in their own backyard. And renting from a fabulous Minneapolis party business is the key to unlocking all sorts of fun possibilities. Did your cousin have an unforgettable party with that rental? I’d love to hear all about it! It might even spark some inspiration for others reading this.

      And of course, if you ever need more ideas for unleashing little imaginations, whether it’s for another birthday party or just a rainy afternoon, check out these kid-friendly art studios around the Twin Cities! The artists who run these studios are always thrilled to share the joy of creative play, and — bonus — they clean up afterwards, so you don’t have to.
