I don't have the app installed, but maybe creating a pinned shortcut to it will help?
You can use my app to try it:

Please let me know if it helps.

OK I've tried it myself, and noticed the app's app-info screen doesn't have "enable" ability.
However, you can enable it using root via my app. It will get disabled some time later though.

I've noticed the issue of YT-kids being missing its icon myself.
While I don't use the app, I think it should be user's choice to use it, so I've made these requests to Google:

Also, for rooted devices, I've modified my app so that when it creates a shortcut to an app, it will first enable it if needed:

This way you can use whichever app that gets auto-disabled, without performing special operations before.
