Hartmann Birthday Parties


Birthday Party Information

Host a birthday party your child will talk about for years....with the Vernon Hills Park District Party Planners! Our staff will take the party planning pressures off of you. You pick a theme and invite the guests, and we'll take care of the rest. Parties are limited by the availability of the facility and staff. We require booking at least 3 weeks in advance.

All Parties are for children 3-6 years of age.

Birthday parties are fitted to host 20 party guests. No more than 23 max. We can seat a maximum of 12 adults comfortably given the size/spacing of the party building.

The birthday building has plenty of table and counter space, it also has a full size refrigerator, sink and cabinets for storage.

Please read the information included on this web page for details on party staffing, games, the two party options, decorations and more! Attached are 3 photos of our party building & layout.

Games Galore: Specially tailored to each age group; includes traditional and carnival-type games and activities. A favorite for all ages!

If you have male guests attend the Princess Party, we will accommodate accordingly with games and prizes from the Dino Party.

Party Lay-Out:

A) Every party begins with table toppers to entertain guests as they arrive; this may include coloring sheets, stamps, princess beads for necklaces,dino dough... Once all guests have arrived (about 5 minutes after party starts), we switch over to fake tattoos and face paining! The fake tattoos match the theme of party- we have under the sea, dinosaurs, Disney* princesses and under the big top carnival tattoos!

B) Next, we play active games! Games may include freeze dance, find the hidden objects, pin the: (crown on the princess, fin of the fish, nose on the clown...), hot potato: (pass the poison apple, pass the terrible Trex, pass the octopus. ..)

C) After table games, tattoos, face painting and activities we sit down for cake and drink. Time remaining is allotted for Pinata (if purchased in advance) and time appropriate games that were not already played.

*Number of games played varies for each party based on number of guests and the ages of the guests. In general, the younger the children- the less games played. Fun will still be had by all!

*Gifts are take home unless requested in advance to be opened. This is strictly due to time.
