The general most popular entertainment comes in the form of; clowns, ball pits, magicians, face painter, balloon models, bouncy castles, party games and live animals.
Clowns are a very good choice as they are funny and their main aim is to keep the children laughing. It’s usually a single entertainer working alone, which means it is a cheaper option that can have very good results. A common problem with clowns is that some children really aren’t fond of them, and this could create a bad atmosphere with children at the party or event.
Children’s magicians are able to create a great atmosphere in parties as the children are usually too young to understand what happens behind the illusions. Pretty much all kids will find this type of children’s entertainers very interested and as long as you hire one of the quality magicians they will have enough tricks to keep your children entertained for hours. If you’re looking for someone who can do balloon modelling most magicians will kill two birds with one stone; although there are specific balloon modellers available.
Looking for something extra to keep your children entertained and give the professional a break?
Ball pits and bouncy castles are very fun, however hours of the same thing could make the event very boring in the eyes of a child. Children get bored easy, so you want something that changes into a different act when needed. If you combine one of these methods with another such as a clown or magician you can easy keep switching between the two or use the pit or castle as a breaking point for the entertainer. Either way they are sure to keep your children satisfied for a good amount of time. They are usually relatively cheap and can be rented out for the day at a private or public location.
Party games are a classic method of entertainment, as at some point in our lives all of us have done them. Games include pass the parcel and musical chairs, and usually incur some sort of prize for the winner. Games like these are sure to take a sufficient amount of time whilst keeping children fully entertained.
Live animals are a more expensive option, but most kids really do enjoy the chance to touch and see live animals. You can usually get horses along with various other farm animals. Usually a professional entertainer will come along with the animals to ensure goes as planned and the environment stays safe.
Finding professional children’s entertainment in your local area usually isn’t very hard. The paper and the internet are great places to start looking, although most entertainers have their services advertised around town and on their own transport.
